    Although “Doom Metal” is a side story to Death Metal, Williamson has made it an indispensable part of the overall story. Technically, you could skip it and still understand the story. However, the story isn't truly complete without this chapter. Also, Justice League #57 clearly demonstrates why Joshua Williamson should be signed on as the title's regular writer. Come on, DC. Make it happen! Read Full Review

    As expected, this issue wraps the Justice League portion of the Death Metal tie-in with the story picking up in this week's Death Metal #5. This was a fun side quest, which is becoming a specialty for Nightwing with Dark Nights spin-offs. Read Full Review

    Xermanico delivers some beautiful art throughout this issue. There are some great action moments and the battle against the Omega Knight is visually stunning. Read Full Review

    The story comes to a quick close here in the most unsatisfying way imaginable. Ramifications and stakes are thrown out the window, while status quos are changed unceremoniously and..... honestly, it doesn't seem like anyone cared about this and just needed to accomplish some house cleaning for Death Metal. The art was fun and I love the characters involved here but ultimately, this was a huge letdown. Read Full Review

    I think that if you're reading Death Metal, it's essential that you read this tie-in to ground yourself in the world " even if the ending is a bit hasty to get back to business. Read Full Review

    The Justice League title continues to spin its wheels in a forgettable issue. This arc started out with promise, but it ends as a commercial for Death Metal. Hopefully The Justice League book will find purpose again. Read Full Review
