    So glad this is the last issue.
    This book has been a hard slog.
    That said, what are the chances the final page alludes to the next big event coming soon?
    Ugh.

    The question is what are the chances than the history give some clear resolution.

    Uh, the reveal of who King was... something

    I didn't see that coming; I honestly don't think Bendis is suited for the DC Universe.

    He needs a Question or Manhunter Black Label book to play around with, so he truly doesn't have to give a damn about continuity

    Just take him away, please. There are going to be a lot of stories justo to fix all the disasters Bendis is doing.
    Imagine what is he going to do to JLDark.

    He is such a talent, but I just don't understand his thought process.

    I mean for the last half decade or so he has been writing as if he's the only writer that matters at either of the big two.

    And I am a huge fan of his, but he is flabbergasting

    I only agree on the part on he is not suited for DC. Or sci fi books. Or coral books with more than five characters.

    The fact that I actually read this utterly mediocre miniseries after being burned by Event Leviathan is completely my fault.

    However, I will not be fooled a third time. I've learned my lesson.

    All this so Talia could be the new leader of Leviathan once again. Lol
    And Waller coming out of nowhere to join them. How can they even trust her?

    I really wish DC would scrap this and give us Rucka's Checkmate again.

    That’s what I keep saying but I keep touching that hot stove somehow expecting it to be cold and then I’m disappointed that it’s still hot. If only he’d stay out of the DCU proper. instead he’s writing Justice League. Who is buying this shit? Oh yeah, me.

    It looks like Bendis will continue this story in JL for the foreseeable future.
    Until he launches a JL VS Checkmate mini LOL.
