    In The End: This was a great story on its own, but it was also a wonderful set-up for the final issue of Infinite Crisis. Again, it was a bit confusing as to why Alexander would assume the Lex Luthor form again after all that had happened and both Black Adam and J'onn J'onnz seemed a bit peppy for men who had been strapped to a massive, reality altering tower, but it didn't take away from my enjoyment of the book. Dale Eaglesham, with Art Thibert and Drew Geraci, had the difficult task of drawing a huge cast of characters, but the final result looked great. I thought that this was the best crossover to come out of Infinite Crisis and am looking forward to what comes next for Catman and crew. Read Full Review

    For fans of the Countdown series, this issue repeats the strengths of that title while escalating problems to a whole new scale. But not without hope, and never without visible humanity, even among the darkest of alliances. Read Full Review

    Overall, VU:ICS has delusions of grandeur. Delusions of being much better than the end result. An end result that just leaves the reader wishing they had spent their hard earned cash on something else. I don't know what has happened to Gail Simone, but this and her current run in JLA: Classified is not indicative of how good she can be. She's far better than this. Read Full Review

    Because this special is oversized, Simone makes sure to fill every page with more inanity and poor writing, and I really dont feel the need to highlight more of it. The one saving grace is Eagleshams art, but given the confusing and nonsensical layouts he has to draw, hes as much a victim of the script as are the readers. Read Full Review
