    Williams himself gave us a New 52 version of Nyx in Batwoman 13, just a couple of years ago. The narrator here is Wonder Woman:

    So is Night the "Lady" who "bathes in darkness" in issue 2? And when she asks if "he" has sent word, and implies that "he" holds a grudge, the "he" in question is Time (who, in 4, seems anxious to...

    We agree on that. Of course, there usually is new interest when a new team come on--but, as I said, this was more than I expected. It will be interesting to see how well the interest hold up now that...

    Well, look at Hanley's review, for example. It certainly slams the last issue:

    The reviewer says the plan's OK but the execution is flawed. To me, that's more analogous to saying that the choice of toppings was fine, but the burger wasn't cooked very well. To be honest, for me...

    OK, fair enough. But what is its relevance, exactly? The only sales number we have is the number of orders placed for issue 1 before it was published--and therefore before any reviews were published....

    I agree. I expected there to be some bounce, but this was more than I expected.

    Here's part of what they said:



    "Not yet running on full cylinders" doesn't quite mean "liked it quite a bit," does it? Seems more like they're saying it's not that bad and it has potential.
