    Listen to me, going on and on about the series faults. I've barely found time to heap the proper amount of praise on Sturges' brilliant grasp of most of these characters and his penchant for comfortably slipping into their insane personas. If there's one area of Salvation Run that's damned near impossible to complain about, it's characterization. Sturges knows these nut-jobs all too well, and is more than eager to give such insights as why and how the Joker is able to put up with all those beat-downs at the hands of Batman, why Heat Wave likes burning things, and how Vandal Savage's cunning has been sharpened to a point over the past thousand years. It's these moments that make Salvation Run a hell of a lot of fun and well worth the cover price, even if, in the end, it's likely to have little or no impact on the greater scheme of the DCU other than, you know, "Villains enter stage left."
