    With all that said, there is a lot to like about the issue, no matter how disjointed and abbreviated it is. Simone could write these characters playing checkers and I'd find it entertaining, so there are of course a number of awesome character moments and laugh out loud exchanges in these pages. The difference between this issue and previous installments is that Simone never really puts all the pieces together, so what we're left with is an entertaining but disappointing reel of juicy moments starring the coolest team of characters in comics. It's still a worthwhile experience, just not one that meets the standards set previously by Simone and Scott. Read Full Review

    Jumping from origin to origin to betrayal to setback makes this issue a bit uneven, as one senses Simone had a lot of agendas to fulfill at once, and she doesn't do it seamlessly. But, then, her title characters are full of scars and old resentments and crucibles of terror and patchworks of incomplete healing anyway. She's uncovered a fresh corner of the DC world by exploring the tattered lives of these secondary villains, and it's a consistently intriguing one with all the potential an ongoing series needs.
