    Grayson stuck the landing, which is appropriate for a comic about an acrobat turned superhero. One particular moment gave me chills

    (Spoilers for Grayson #20)
    So an evil nazi scientist managed to cheat death by having his consciousness copied into the body of Helena Bertinelli, aka Huntress. To save her, Dick offers to trade his life for hers, and have Doctor Daedalus take over his body instead. Because literally no one can resist the appeal of having Dick Grayson's body, he accepts, and as the consciousness switch takes place, Dick and Helena have time for a brief conversation in which he explains he has no plan beyond fighting his hardest and hoping his years of mental training are enough, setting the stage for a battle of wills.

    That Superman scan is so anti climatic.

    The Rebirth scan is the complete opposite though. So damn well done.

    Johns is the guy who helped make Wally irrelevant, so forgive me if I'm not totally sold on this.

    Also, Batman needed to drop a "HH" there at the end.

    He did upgrade the shit out of his Rogues, though.

    Geoff absolutely follows the rule of cool as far as storytelling; imo his best work has been when he's had a co-writer or someone to reign him in though.

    Johns did a great job writing Wally. It just sucks that he got dumped because someone at DC wanted Barry back after the success of Hal's return.

    Johns also gave us Superboy punching the walls of reality or whatever that was in Infinite Crisis.

    I thought it was Johns that wanted Barry back, considering he wrote Flash: Rebirth, and he's also the one who brought back Hal Jordan. Seemed like he was just a fan of boring white guys from the 60s.
