    Comics Bulletin - Jim Beard Dec 6, 2007

    But overall, back to the writing, yeah, yeah, youre saying you could probably write this sort of thing yourself, but the cool thing is that DC just did it for you. Just go with it. Read the damn thing and then talk about it online or around the water cooler or whatever and I think youll find, as I did, that it's goofy fun that can also prove to be thought provoking and an intriguing side-project to the larger, ahem, arena of Countdown.

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Dec 5, 2007

    Tempted to give it a Must Read, but the art really let this title down, which is surprising for McDaniel, and it's still just a fanboy book with little actual story or significance. Something akin to Marvel VS DC. I'm a bit upset they killed off Gotham by Gaslight Batman, too. So much potential wasted, but it looks like the Multiverse will be going the way of the dodo by the end of Final Crisis or at least getting a restart. Read Full Review
