Inspired as always by their idols in the Legion of Super-Heroes last issue, the Legion of Substitute Heroes has also traveled back in time to recruit new members. But where their counterparts reached out to the Doom Patrol, the Subs have managed to enlist The Inferior Five! It ain't a stretch to suggest this won't end well.

    The Brave and the Bold probably isn’t for everyone, but if your tastes tend to run outside of continuity and toward solid fun, it might be the book for you. It’s honestly one of my most anticipated titles every month. This issue was no exception. Read Full Review

    All in all, the issue falls far short of the high benchmark the JMS/Saiz team has set on The Brave and the Bold. The issue does make an insane sort of sense when placed alongside last month's Doom Patrol/Legion of Superheroes team-up, but even when taken as a whole this story isn't anywhere near as polished or impressive as this creative team's previous efforts. At the very least, though, this installment does deliver a few big laughs while providing some fun, irreverent entertainment. For that, I'd still call it a worthwhile read. I just hope JMS and Saiz revert back to the form that made this series one of the best on the stands, and sooner rather than later. Read Full Review

    It's certainly the best version of the Subs outside of Edmund Hamilton, Paul Levitz, or Keith Giffen, and it's, by default, the best version of the Inferior Five since the Silver Age. But sometimes it's enough just to put these kinds of characters together and have fun with the possibilities that arise. And that's what we get in this issue. It's broad. It's dumb. And it's the greatest Inferior Five/Legion of Substitute Heroes team-up in the history of comic books. Read Full Review
