I came to this as a fan of Moore's Watchmen. Though, it does not have a carefully crafted plot as Moore previous work nor is it as thematically rich. I stayed for Bolland wonderful aesthethic. Read full review

User Review  - Joel - Goodreads

Not nearly as awesome as I remember it or as it's held up to be.

Am I one of the few underwhelmed by this? And I'm generally a fan of Moore but I think he missed the mark here. See Erin's review from 3/15/2008 to petty much sum up how I feel about this story. Read full review

User Review  - Alyssa - Goodreads

It was well-told, but I just hate the misogynistic treatment of poor Barbara Gordon and the use of the Women in Refrigerators trope. Read full review
