Oh, and if anybody's interested to know who else made up the Club of Heroes: Batman & Robin, Superman, The Gaucho, The Legionary and the Musketeer (Encyclopedia of Comic Book Heroes Volume One: Batman by Michael Fleisher) Read Full Review
Ed McGuinness is not exactly the best match for Grant Morrison's rather chaotic script, as he's always struck me as an artist who needs the writer to clearly lay out the action, or he'll simply fall back into the habit of offering up pinup shots of the characters, and this issue pretty much reaffirms this belief, as the art does a very poor job of actually detailing what the powers of this cast of characters are.

I'll also give the art full marks for the sequence where Squire is knocked off her sky cycle as it's a fun cute meet moment.

Still, the final page manages to set up a solid final image to carry us into the next issue. Read Full Review
