- Hype Backlash: The Three Jokers series has been getting this in recent times thanks to Jason Fabok and DC Comics overhyping the issues for years. Its Schedule Slip doesn't help, coupled with the series is only three issues long, makes fans weary from all the hype it gets especially since it teases that it will shake up the status quo in the Batman storyline.

- So Okay, It's Average: The general reception to Superman: Year One, as while it does feature a unique new origin for Clark Kent, it suffers from Frank Miller's infamous style of writing and is overall just bland.
- Tainted by the Preview: The announcement that Frank Miller would be writing Superman: Year One drew this reaction - in part due to his reputation for hating Supermannote , but also because of how controversial some more of his recent works (ASBAR, Holy Terror) have been.
