Thoughts

This three-issue arc was very fun. The way it tapped into nostalgia from a rough time and turned it into something wholesome was very interesting to see. The art lent itself to this with its neo silver age feel. This whole arc was very well done and subtle which in this publication is a great change of pace.

Born in Florida, dragged to California because of Internet dating. Comics have always helped me have a healthy escape when I was younger. As I got older my friends used me as their comic encyclopedia for random trivia. Now, I show my daughter all the stories and characters that helped me through, and being able to share my views on that through reviews is one of my favorite privileges.
Summary
Tomasi has a very good way of keeping Detective Comics dynamic. It's always switching from action-packed to informative and this book was genuinely just entertaining. All the references and the showing of mortal enemies becoming friends came together really well for a fulfilling read.
