Let’s talk about the prelude

Actual discussion Qs and not predictions? I don’t want to post my thoughts to early.


Yes! Actual. Sorry I’m trying to figure out formatting. Please refrain from Green Arrow Annual #1 until Friday though!


1.)It would be tough for her, but she could pull it off. Her conversation with Damien proves that she has it in her, and, well, it’s Damien so it’s not exactly like she was on easy mode.

2.)I feel like they sort of flow into one battle. Ra’s al Ghul isn’t really there in the story as an opponent for Damien, only an explanation for Damien’s other battle.

3.)I know where this is going, so I’ll stay silent for now.

4.)8/10. Not phenomenal, but I loved it. It’s a solid story and the dialogue is great at conveying the very real emotions Damian would be feeling in light of the coming wedding. Definitely my favorite of the five preludes, but that might change as we discuss the later ones…

@awesomeSquid thanks for staying quiet!! I LOVE this issue for it’s heart! The crimson Lion whatever his name is, is a fun character I hope happens. Is it just me or does Catwoman’s son LOOK like the child of the two. That’s some great design!

@Nathan.Payson Everything about this issue was great. I forgot to mention the design of the characters, but I also thought they were really good.

It’s aion. I don’t know how to feel about that name…

@Nathan.Payson It’s beautiful. It perfectly captures the… um… I… um…
