I'll try giving it a reread but the art was a problem and the supporting characters were awful and connor just seemed off.

The art is only partially serviceable. but over all not very good at all. The Parasite looks amazing and is in full on monster mode but every one else looks like they have a thick layer of dough underneath their skin and the fight with parasite was pretty lame.

I like Lee fell in love with this character back in the pages of Johns Titans run and this character is that one, if he was hit in the head with a hammer repeatedly...dialogue is choppy and doesn't flow through pages in general. This book is a bit of a disappointment and the addition of Poison Ivy still leaves a bad taste in my mouth from what DC/Dini did in my previously favorite book.

Okay. I am probably asking for trouble. But what did they do to Ivy?

If you were to ask me what my biggest pet peeve with DC comics was, above all others, it would be characters like Superboy. There's nothing hokeyer than female, boy, and dog versions of popular characters. As soon as Hawkboywomandog or the like shows up in a DC comic, my brain immediately quits paying attention and I'm taken right out of the story. Legacy characters are bad. Boy sidekicks are worse. But dogboywoman clones of characters is just too fucking much. If there is one thing that will forever keep comics marginalized as a medium for manchildren, it's this shit. Ironic that Lemire is acclaimed for his serious business hipster literary comics and then he signs on to write this otherwise mediocre embarassment.

Y'know, the fact that you hate these derivative characters is a pretty hipster attitude.

Nothing in particular, but dini stopped writing Gotham City Sirens and DC didn't tell anyone till it was way too late for all other than in store buyers....So they fucked up the character and a book I was really enjoying,
