Usually you’d see a title like that and assume it’s just click-bait, but in this rare instance…it’s actually true.  Want a few more details on what went down?  Check out the review for Batman #32.

Now, lets take a look at this week’s comics in descending order from highest to lowest scored.

Batman: White Knight #1

Score: 9.5/10

A familiar story told with sophistication and subtlety, Batman: White Knight #1 sets a high bar for creator-driven visions of Gotham’s avenger. Layers of verbal and visual artistry further bloom with subsequent reading, and their effects are not diminished by one’s awareness of them. Through it all, Murphy provides a frank commentary on the state of truth in the modern world, avoiding the pitfalls of reductionism and one-sided finger-pointing. This is what art speaking into culture can be. This is what it should be.

All-Star Batman #14

Score: 9/10

 All-Star goes out strong.  With “The First Ally,” Snyder and Albuquerque ran us through a gamut of insane action, thrilling chases, and even a bit of high-seas intrigue.  More than that, though, this was a look at the relationships between fathers and sons.  There were a few times when the disparate tones clashed a bit, but overall Snyder successfully balanced the fun with the drama, crafting a swashbuckler of an arc with a rock-solid heart.

Harley Quinn #29

Score: 8.5/10

I am thoroughly enjoying this completely bonkers arc about Harley running for office in New York.

Welcome to “Debates and Delusions” wherein Harley Quinn takes on the other mayoral candidates after huffing fear toxin compliments of Scarecrow himself.  If that sounds like the kind of deranged thing you’d love to read about, step right up for this carnival of confusion.

Injustice 2 #11

Score: 8/10

You still can’t beat this book for high emotional content and big-kicking action!

Green Arrow #32

Score: 8/10

“Gotham Resistance” finds success because of a sum of its parts. While the issue itself is just ok, there are many developments that greatly add to Metal’s story overall, and that gives this tie-in more prevalence and weight compared to other tie-ins.

Harley and Ivy meet Betty and Veronica #1 

Score: 7.5/10

 While the issue itself may not be overly exciting, what is exciting is the potential of greatness that is teased in this debut! The exposition is out of the way, the characters are in place, and we’ve been treated to a hilarious scenario with well-written characters!

Batman #32

Score: 6.5/10

“The War of Jokes and Riddles” never really succeeded at delivering the “War” aspect of the title.  And this finale installment is no exception to that rule.  Instead, this arc has been much more about themes and ideas.  While many of those ideas have been genuinely interesting, they are never truly explored to fruition.  Consequently, many things are left to our imagination.  Some acceptably so, and others to our annoyance.  While I really like many of the seeds King has been planting of late, and look forward to where all this goes, his track record tells me that we’ll never really get to fully explore all the wonderful notions he is constantly bringing up.

Nightwing #30

Score: 6.5/10

Tim Seeley’s final arc on the title kicks off with an issue that has some good ideas and some sloppy execution.  From the beginning, Seeley has been great at making Nightwing’s world feel big and alive, and that’s still the case here: from new layers to his relationship with Detective Svoboda and increased tension with the Run-Offs, Blüdhaven has felt just as organic as it was back in Dick’s previous series.  The finer details are still relatively spot-on, but the main narrative has some room to grow.  While some absolutely gorgeous visuals from Miguel Mendonca, Diana Egea and Chris Sotomayor do quite a bit of the heavy-lifting, the story itself needs to come together to wow us.

Justice League #30

Score: 6/10

If you’ve been on board for Hitch’s run up to this point, I suspect you’ll be just fine with Justice League #30. But if, like me, you’ve struggled through inconsistencies, plot contrivances and artwork that falls short of this brand, then you should happily continue avoiding this book until after the next issue. The reveals here are unsatisfying, the artwork is near the bottom of what we’ve seen thus far, and there’s nothing that will sway readers who haven’t been convinced yet.

Batman: The Dawnbreaker #1

Score: 6/10

It reads better the second time, but Batman: The Dawnbreaker still suffers from an unrecognizable hero and one-too-many ring-related contrivances. It’s a shame, because it’s a great-looking book that deserves a better implementation of the good idea at the root of it all.
