  1. Well I might as well finish off wasting my money on this mini. I have been hoping something would happen to draw me in and I want to like the three characters in here however; this is confusing at best. Oh well!!

  2. @Flash923  Agreed.  The delays for this book killed this “movement.”  It’s not helped by the fact that The Spirit and Doc Savage books didn’t make a big splash (I bought both and dropped them).  I only buying this to finish off the mini so I can ebay to the whole thing.  It’s really sad to type that because I was really looking forward to it.

  3. The Batman / Doc Savage one shot with the Phil Noto art was so good, but this series has been pretty mediocre and uncompelling overall.

  4. Was looking forward to this mini-series, but it was very lackluster. Glad to see it’s finally over.

  5. The one thing that really destroyed the series for me was the lateness I mean I have enjoyed the first five issues plus the one shot but DC Comics can’t sustain this line at the pace of The First Wave Mini series lateness. Don’t get me wrong I loved the art and story so far is really cool traditional Pulp feel to it. 🙂

  6. I loved the one-shot and the first issue of this mini. The rest was good, but I wanted more of Batman shooting pistols. I noticed that Phil Winslade had to come in and ink 5 or so pages of this last issue. It wasn’t too much of a hiccup. I think this will read exceptionally well once collected. I am still a big fan of Rags’ art even if he was a bit slow on this. 

  7. Azzarello screwd the pooch with the “Neo Noir” stuff. Would have been far better with a true 30’s setting. This was a good premise that got over hyped and then had it’s flame pissed on.
    DC should give all the properties to Dynamite so they can get a little justice.

  8. So disappointing, this had really potential and it just squandered it.
