Quote:I found this issue . . . confusing. In that it does not take up from last issue and all it says is that Flash and Batman are considering the notion that there are too many mysteries.
They may or may not have good excuses but it's shameful that when a big comic book company sticks a non-sequential arc in a serial series. The more respected the series the more nitpickable this infraction. Add to that DC continuity here just adds to the confusion. So, this JLA adventure all happens before #61 - Heroes in Crisis early issues too - and the first page prologue even farther back - and that untold team-up with the sidekicks ages before that.
Quote:For that, we get some Justice League action and Flash and Batman talking about said action and how it seems to lead them to some thoughts about too many mysteries.
It's a weird set up for 4 issues. Add to that the trite sounding dialogue of the other Leaguers. Uhh... Commander Stell is back - on the JLA?!
Quote:I felt no emotional connection to characters or story. Rather I felt disconnected from everything going on.
Quote:The art is nice, but Batman needs a shave. He's not a damned hippie. Razors aren't expensive and how Alfred lets him go out of the manor groomed like that is beyond me.
It wasn't bad but it was definitely a STEP DOWN from the excellent work we've been getting. So, a strike against.
Quote:But seriously, trying to fit in King's 100 issue plot with DC's NEXT BIG THING (something the Big Two do too often) really cuts out momentum from an arc that is already decompressed.
It certainly does not feel promising to tie in the Gotham Girl storyline to the Flash Mythos/Canon. And somehow they going to shoehorn the Doomsday Clock crisis does not seem enticing.
PREVIEW Batman (2016-) #64:
I miss Dad & Dan.
