    Overall, this issue falls victim to the need of a tie-in and disbanding of the JLA. Both the creators and fans are left to deal with this crisis in a not so satisfying way. Read Full Review

    Im looking forward to the final confrontation between Green Arrow and Batman, but this storyline has been extremely disappointing overall. I just hope that DC will still care enough about the title when it returns to bring it back in style. Read Full Review

    Eh, I could’ve done without that needless Infinite Crisis tie-in, but it’s hard to blame Harras because I’m sure he had no choice in the matter. Honestly, I expected worse from this arc but I’m hoping the pace starts to quicken these next 2 issues. Love the art, except on Supergirl because Derenick draws her like an anime character
