    Chris Batista's work is a little too clean cut to sell the darker elements of the story, as I got the sense that Felix Faust was supposed to be a frightening presence when he emerged from the smoke holding that black cat, but the scene felt a little too bright and colourful. The same held true for the scene where we saw the Matter Master getting his revenge upon Hawkman, though I will concede that the panel where Catwoman falls victim to Faust's blade was helped by the look of delight that was etched on his face. In fact Chris Batista proves to be a masterful artist when it comes to capturing that look of pure evil, as the final page of this issue is a wonderful looking piece that couldn't help but leave me eagerly awaiting the next issue. The art also deserves full marks for it's work on the issue's big impact moment, as we see Batman lashes out at Hawkman, with a punch that truly jumps off the page, though I have to say when I compare the two images Rags Morales version of this scene Read Full Review

    Anyone who liked Identity Crisis will like this. It carries the story on well, leading on in a logical matter and leaving the reader guessing as to what will happen next. The characters are well handled, and there is a nicely showcased action sequence to start off. All in all, a fitting episode in what could certainly be a major arc in JLA history, and maybe even that of the DC universe. Read Full Review
