    This issue keeps right in line with the series to date. Giffen and DiDio continue to celebrate the DC Universe and its wackiness, with a decidedly Kirby-centric focus. Giffen continues to exude Kirby-like qualities in his art and the book is better for it. The setting of Cadmus, the goings-on underneath, and sinister, shrouded figure on this issue's final page all call out to Silver Age awesomeness and offer up some fabulous Kirby-inspired visuals.

    I'm sure that this review seems like a downer so far, but the truth of it is that I still had a lot of fun reading this book. The majority of the characters are quite entertaining, and the bi-layered storytelling between the soldiers and their commanders is a nice variant for the series. The artwork is bright and energetic, and Kevin Kho's facial expressions hit the just the right notes. Most of all, though, I'm happy that there's a book on the shelves that is as solid and funny as this one is. If the book's chorus didn't take up so much of its duration and didn't overdrive the speakers so much, this book would rank near the top of my list of favorite comics. Read Full Review
