    The ending comes as a complete surprise, but in hindsight, the character's actions make perfect sense. It would take somebody insane and arrogant enough to believe his power is enough to withstand superior alien scrutiny. His motives however are far from transparent. Read Full Review

    The story's moving a bit slower than I'd like to see, as while the League play a role in this issue it's primarily as observers to how dangerous this current threat is. Still, being a big fan of H.G. Wells original "War of the Worlds" story, it's rather fun to see the League running up against this seemingly unstoppable force. The issue also does some very strong work with Mr. Hyde in this issue, as while one doesn't exactly expect him to be a terribly deep character, his conversation with Mina does a great job of fleshing the character out. There's also a wonderful little closing sequence to this issue, as the Invisible Man recognizes that balance of power has shifted, and he decides that he's going to insure that he's not swept aside by the coming storm. Still, I do hope that the following issues establish a quicker pace, as right now the book's a bit slow moving. One does have to love the visuals though, as Kevin O'Neill's in fine form.
