Written by Jackson Lanzing and Collin Kelly

Art by Roge Antonio and Geraldo Borges

Cover by Mikel Janin

 

The story this time around in Grayson is rather confusing.  We know that Dick Grayson and Tiger are trying to fight Spyral and in doing so, they run into Frankenstein and the agents of S.H.A.D.E. They then both decide to fight for Spyral again?  I wish that King and Seeley’s vision was laid out in their own hands because what Lanzing and Kelly are doing right now is an alright story but it feels like all the loose ends that were set up for this series are being rushed and leveled off so that Grayson will end before Nightwing begins in Rebirth.  Hopefully this story will make more sense especially because the cliffhanger at the end of this issue was one of the most boring, uninteresting cliffhangers I have ever seen that involves 3 characters that no one cares about.

The art by Antonio and Borges reminds me of Janin’s art with a much darker shade and heavier use of shadows.  The only negative I can find about this art is that it’s not Janin’s, which is unfortunate for these two artists because their work is not bad at all and in fact kept me interested in this book for this issue.  If the art was bad and the story was like it was in this issue, I would heavily consider dropping this book.

 

The story is okay, the art is above average so it’s not the worst comic I have ever read. I do wish this issue could offer more like the rest of the series has. Still going to finish this series to figure out the madness of this arc. I’m not confident that the book being out of King and Seeley’s hands, we will see the conclusion the fans are looking for.
Garrett’s Rating:  5/10
