    ChrisCross has his legion of fans and I will concede that his art has a nice sense of energy to it that makes it easy to understand why many fans would find his art fresh and visually exciting. However, from a storytelling sense I have to say I have some issues with his work, as there are moments when the art chooses to deliver a flashy visual without taking time to consider if it is clearly conveying the action to the readers. I mean the scene where he's flying through the air when he's knocked out of the sky by a giant rock didn't really do a good job of showing us where that rock came from. The various ineffectual attacks that Firestorm makes on his opponent in this issue also aren't all that clear about why they aren't having any effect. Still, the visual design of the villain was pretty creepy, and Superman's arrival scene has a nice sense of majesty to it. Read Full Review
