    Default Bad/subpar books or stories with great art

    pretty self explanatory. what are some stories where the story was a two-pack of ass but art was impressive?

    EDIT: oh, my answer is Doomsday Clock and Three Jokers btw.

    Heroes in Crisis the thread
    It's the Dynamic Duo! Batman and Robin!... and Red Robin and Red Hood and Nightwing and Batwoman and Batgirl and Orphan and Spoiler and Bluebird and Lark and Gotham Girl and Talon and Batwing and Huntress and Azreal and Flamebird and Batcow?

    Since when could just anybody do what we trained to do? It makes it all dumb instead of special. Like it doesn't matter anymore.

    All Star Batman and Robin
    Dark Nights Metal, Death Metal and everything related

    Personally I can't stand bland superheroics with great art anymore. DC has relied too much on it for my tastes.

    "Identity Crisis"

    "Cry for ... JUSTICE!!!"

    "Legion Lost" (the series, not the mini)

    (and interesting subcategory of this would be if any books that qualify for this were written and drawn by the same person....?)

    Frankly, I'd be mad if it was either Walker's or Semper's.

    (Hate that Semper doesn't get his dues for Cyborg, even if Walker isn't much better only gets them belatedly and in passing.)

    Hush, for me. The writing was subpar and I didn't find the plot well developed. Gorgeous art though.

    Flash Rebirth had some amazing art, especially some of the Speed Force sequences, but ultimately an off-putting story with bizarre choices.
