    Major Spoilers - Scott Hunter Apr 4, 2010

    This book was at the top of my reading list this month and it didn't disappoint. The concept for the story is great to begin with and the writing, despite one or two complaints, doesn't let it down. Above all the issue is fluid, never getting bogged down in padding, and what flaws there are are forgotten as you enjoy the really great story that's on show. That, combined with extremely well-written characters, makes for a great read. The art never stumbles, and I can't remember the last time I could say that about a book in its entirety. All in all, this is one of the best super hero stories I've read this year (outside of a major crossover event) and I can do nothing less than give it four and a half stars out of five.

    Comic Book Bin - Herv St-Louis May 1, 2010

    This issue explains how the Justice Society was defeated by the Fourth Reich in the past and how the future changed. Its a Days of the Future Past type of story and its a good read. Mr. Terrific is the central character of this storyline and we see him use his intellect to the max. I like his interrogation and how he relates history. Im glad that there is finally a classic Justice Society story. The series has been too laid back for months and the use of Kid Karnevil to set up this particular storyline was a long time coming. But Im glad it pan out and this team may yet make a mark in the Justice Societys history. Right now, theres dangerously approaching the best work by Geoff Johns. A strong series is nothing without strong art. Merino provides the good old comic book visual punches and the strong group shots necessary to carry the story forward. Read Full Review

    Anyway, if you're like me and you enjoy futuristic/alternate reality storylines, then this comic is definitely worth checking out. If you don't, well then I'd still recommend it! Read Full Review

    An issue that can be missed. Last issue set up the story. The next issue should move the story along. I would wait and pick it up. Read Full Review
