  1. Someone read this?

  2. Yeah I read it. Decent but not vital. Typical of what you’ll find in a New 52 annual these days.

    • I felt that way about Detective #19 which convinced me I had enough of this book. Decent, but there are a lot of books out there better than decent.

  3. I LOVED IT!!!!!!!

    Yeah, I dropped this book Sadly! It still makes me sad i’ve been reading Detective Comics consistently since i was 11 years old and I just couldn’t let it go! Not, that its been a horrible title but,it hasn’t been great either. Layman is always a jerk went to a chew panel at C2E2 and he was arrogant and rude so, I figured i’m not gonna give him anymore of my money LOL

  5. Things are starting to get weird here.

  6. I just checked the the cover and yep, they charged us 4.99 for that lifeless rubbish! The issue revolves around an unlikely love story that is made all the more unlikely because it happens entirely off panel. The characters are completely in service to the by the numbers plot. The art is amongst some of the weakest I’ve seen, the final story is particularly weak with a Harvey Bullock who looks different in every panel – not great for a story about a mimic.

    I’ll likely drop this title.

    Story – 2/5
    Art – 2/5
