I didn't expect many answers going in, after all this is a midway point for a two year storyline. I figured it would introduce more questions than it answered, but the art and writing were terrific and I felt well served by the story. The last issue of Batman seemed the weak link here, but it all ended on a high.

An excellent conclusion for this incredible cross-over! We didn't get any important revelation but it didn't bother me. This arc teased some great things, and the "return" of that character is really enjoyable. Also, the team-up between the two protagonists is successful. However, there was no real plot and I feel like no much really happened. I'm quite excited to see how the situation is going to more

This event has been an amazing and satisfying interlude between the DCU: Rebirth #1 one-shot and the juicy storyline that Geoff Johns, Gary Frank and Brad Anderson are cooking us. The entire creative team involved in these four issues excelled, especially Joshua Williamson and Howard Porter, who have produced here their best work in a long time.

Easy to overlook with the Button crossover in Flash and Batman, Superman maintains its consistent quality. Gleason and Tomasi continue to deliver solid story telling. Lois is the star of this issue, and receives some A material. One criticism I have with Superman is the decompression that has become the hallmark of the current era comic writing. This story is a nice bit of filler, but exis more
