    Face it, sports fan, this is how it's done. This is one of those comics where you have to count the pages to make sure the DC execs didn't make an error. There're no gimmicks to be found, and although it's a quarter more than some of the $2.25 titles, I'd pay a LOT more than that for it (but let that be our little secret, ok?) These are comic book heroes at their best, and Mr. Winick's status-quo is something I feel readers will cherish for a long time. Get this book before certain gorillas snatch it from you Read Full Review

This issue also makes wonderful use of Lex Luthor, who comes across as extraordinarily cool & collected under pressure, and I have to say that I was delighted with the scene where he's convinced he'll be saved. This issue also offers up a wonderful surprise finish that Read Full Review

    This turned out to be a disappointing follow up to a decent opening chapter, and Im up in the air as to whether or not Ill buy the next installment. Being a big Nightwing fan I looked forward to this book with great anticipation. Unfortunately, that led to one of the biggest let downs of 2003. Buyer beware. Read Full Review
