    The dialogue when not detailing the continuity actually does make the reader notice. The character for whom I empathized the most is a supporting cast member who gets the best lines: "Please tell me that's a lie. Please. Tell me no sister of mine is that empty." I don't know this character's history, yet David in one snatch of dialogue reveals her to me, and Kirk's, Rigg's and D'Angelo's expression for this character emphasizes her personality. She's the one who seemed the most real to me, and I would not mind seeing her again. Read Full Review

    The big finish to the arc that's been running through these pages for the better part of the past two years, and I must confess I was a bit surprised to see it finish in such a perfunctory manner. I mean, aside from showing that she isn't one to give up, this issue leaves Linda with very little to do, beyond her futile attempts at attacking Lilith. Now I'll admit Buzz's betrayal was rather surprising, and the reason he gives for choosing the side that he did made for a great character moment. Still, the action in this issue wasn't overly impressive, and twenty-two pages simply wasn't enough room to fully play up the urgency this story needed. Now sure we got a look around the DCU to see the effect the chaos streams were having, but this material flashes by so quickly that it's difficult to get too excited. Plus, the crisis is resolved so quickly, and with such little fanfare that I found myself a bit disappointed by how it all played out. Read Full Review
