    Quick aside: if you are the type of person who because of personal opinion or due to financial constraints will only be picking up one of the covers to this issue I would definitely pick up the George Perez cover over the Jim Lee cover. The Jim Lee cover is great (even if he screwed up the Earth-2 Superman symbol), but as far as getting the best bang for your comic buck, the detail on the Perez cover has the Lee cover beat hands down. As much as I enjoy Lee's artwork, the shattered image of the DC multiverse works a lot nicer than five people posing for a photo-op. Read Full Review

    While Im still looking forward to seeing where this is going, Earth 2 Supermans words are reminding me a bit too much of Parallax or the JSA in DC2000, and I just hope were not going down that road once again, and that Geoff has other surprises up his sleeve. Read Full Review

    After a first issue which came close to turning me off the whole project, Im glad I gave this second installment a try as whilst I dont think Ill ever grasp some of the finer plot points or understand who all of the characters in the series are, let alone the reasons for their actions Im finding myself quite enjoying the book as an old-school colourful and high-stakes crossover which is making more concessions to new readers than I expected.

    The eyes have it: Otherwise, however, Jiminez is stellar, pulling off a grand scale that easily matches whatever the script calls for. Especially chilling is his OMAC invasion of Themyscira, where he contrasts the Amazons martial ferocity with the hovering and indifferent robots. Read Full Review

    I know Im not the right audience for this comic, but I dont need to have read DC titles from the age of five to be able to recognise a bad comic when I see one. And dont be fooled; this is a bad comic. I know Marvel and DC compete, but shouldnt they each be striving to produce better comics than the other? Read Full Review
