Story: 1 - Poor
Art: 2 - Average



    I agree with you for the most part. I would give it a 2, because it was not as bad as the worst book I’ve ever read, and the art was pretty good IMHO.

    1. I wasn’t so offended by world monuments being destroyed. I think it’s an easy way to show that the devestation is world-wide. And it’s not isolated to Robinson. It was good to see that the heroes in those countries were responding. Still, if this is a Robinson hallmark, it may have overstayed its welcome.

    2. I thought this as well. Terribly out of character for Dick. There were several other examples of that. And some of it was just clumsy. They way he had people’s names thrown in during conversations, which just confused things.

    Dick acts more like Bruce in this book, which is not how he acts in the Bat-books. I just don’t see him coming up with such a hair-brained scheme like he did in this issue.

    3. There were several 4th quarter Hail Mary completions that were just too convenient. Axe Cop is written by a 6-year-old; one would presume Robinson is much older than that.

    4. I don’t know how long Robinson had planned to kill Donna Troy. Maybe from the get go, although I don’t recall anything else leading up to this, other than the events in this issue. In another article, I wondered about what DC editorial told the writers of the non-Flashpoint books in the interim before the reboot. Sounds like someone told Robinson “Do whatever you want,” and he took it to heart. Maybe that explains her disappearance from the cover of JLI #1?

    5. As I said, I thought the art was pretty decent. Not a 5, due to inconsistencies, but enough to pull the book up to a 2.

    I’m going to write this up as a review as well.
