    Great start to what seems to be a great storyline. I had my doubts, but this issue was a great read. The deterioration of this team, and a few of its characters, seems to be the focus in this storyline, so keep your eye on it, before this team possibly disappears forever. Read Full Review

    Kolins' artwork is a lot of fun. Obviously, I have a soft spot for his interpretation of any incarnation of the Flash, and his take on the Golden Age Green Lantern here is as sharp as his past endeavors with the character. I don't much care for the designs for the seemingly unstoppable villain and one of the heroes - Lightning - but to be fair to him, the latter design (Alex Ross' work, I believe) is something he was saddled with. Still, it would be nice if he could tweak or fully redesign Lightning; her look is stiff and a bit plain. I love how Mike Atiyeh's colors add glows to the linework. Kolins has endeavored to establish a dark atmosphere here, but the colors add an eerie quality that adds to the tension. Read Full Review

    Finally, the mayorship of Jay Garrick makes no sense at all, unless its to pit him against city council when he tries to help rebuild the city in future issues. Ive never heard of Monument Point before so I cant even understand what the writer was trying to pull. This story cannot get any worse. Read Full Review

    In a few months, I can't help but think that readers who weren't thrilled with Bill Willingham and Jesus Merino's run on "Justice Society of America" (which I thought was gaining momentum and worth reading) are going to look back fondly on that earlier creative team. I suppose it's apt that the book involves the team creating a disaster, because "disaster" is exactly the word I'd use to describe this issue. Read Full Review
