    Comics Bulletin - Jason Cornwell Jul 27, 2003

    A fairly entertaining issue that is somewhat undone by the general sense that the story is simply going through the hoops that have proven successful in the past. The villain of the story is little better than a raging beast, while our heroes are basically going about their various heroic deeds with very little imagination shown when it comes to endangering these characters. I mean, from a visual sense this issue looks fantastic, but as a longtime comic reader I found the action to be quite predictable, and honestly I had been hoping for something a bit more. Now there's some fairly big impact moments such as the credit page shot when the fight smashes it's way through the festival, and Hawkman attack using the ship as a battering ram was nicely done, but I simply couldn't work up much excitement, and I was particularly disappointed by the idea that Animal Man was given precious little to do beyond move about on the sidelines making minor contributions to the villain's defeat.
