Review of the Week: Forever Evil #5
This was a solid issue, and has been a decently entertaining event all around, but it really is indicative of the problems with the New 52 as a whole. This event has no theme, no moral center. I mean what is this really about? It's kinda all over the place. Even the portrayals of the Syndicate are incredibly shallow compared to how writers like Kurt Busiek portrayed them. I'm enjoying this all around, but as with most of the better parts of the New 52, I can't help but feel it would have been better in the pre-Flashpoint DCU.
