  1. I actually really love the idea of taking characters out of their storylines and exploring relationships. The idea works really well with super heroes. But of course execution matters a ton. I don’t know how you keep where each series is at in your head Lashaan!! I’m still back at the Flash being dead?! But I am curious why the Flash doesn’t like Batman’s methods?! I’ve not read Flash comics but I have seen the tv show and it doesn’t seem like he’s better?!

    1. It’s a really cool idea, Dani, but the issue I find in that is that it doesn’t exactly make too much sense when you know, for example, that Batman is currently going through nightmares concocted by someone he doesn’t know yet (Batman Vol. 10 Knightmares). To have him doing these things is just inconsistent with what’s happening in the canon storyline and that’s why it’s a bit odd. Otherwise, I’m all for this kind of exploration hahah

      Hahah it’s just like any epic fantasy universe, e.g. the Cosmere by Brandon Sanderson. You’ll know what to follow and read, whether you want to or not 😛

      Well, he’s working with the original Flash (Barry Allen), trying to uncover the mystery around the murder of the other Flash (Wally West); that should enlighten you a lot more hahaha And the issue Flash has with Batman is related to how Bats trains his younglings to become vigilantes and continues to maintain his ways. And the thing with both of them is that they both consider one another as great detectives (Batman is a noir detective, Flash is a scientific detective) but they never say it to another.

      1. Ahhh I get it! I guess that is a problem unique to comics because the art is so time intensive that off page story is skipped and then inserting things in that space doesn’t work.

        Really fascinating, I didn’t see the differences in their detective styles being that big of a deal but its about acceptance. Thanks for explaining Lashaan!

  2. Awesome review sir, you know my general feelings on these tie-ins – although I did sort of enjoy the Batman/Flash crossover but otherwise I’m content to leave Heroes in Crisis as it’s own piece. Luckily Event Leviathan is virtually self-contained, although there is some lead up to it in Action Comics but I read that anyway. Look forward to your review of that one eventually!

    1. Thanks, Chris. And yes, I’m with you with how lame tie-ins usually are… This was one mini-event that was better than usual but the story wasn’t the best arc possible. And yes, I definitely look forward to Event Leviathan. I wonder what it’ll be like for one of the first Bendis events!


  3. The idea of exploring character relationships sounds so appealing to me, especially when it gives us the most unconventional pairing. The dynamic between Batman and the Flash sounds so awesome, especially since they seem so different from one another. I’m curious to see how that paring pans out.

        1. I did check and oddly enough, there wasn’t anything there. 😮 It might have been a connection to the server error or a temporary loss in connection to the internet at the same exact moment when you sent your comments. 😮 So far, your comments seem to appear without any problem though! 😀
