    The second issue is probably the most mediocre of the mini-series, but if you have followed 52 or want an explanation for One Year Later, or if you want to see a super-battle without Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, Hal Jordan or the Flash, this is it. Read Full Review

    In the end, I was left with a fairly bad taste in my mouth. A good event in 52 was a bit soiled by these mostly-inferior supplements. Despite DCs admonitions that these four books would provide further information that was important to grasping the larger picture of World War III, it sits there looking like one big oops, we forgot to wrap up some of these issues in 52. One wonders what it could have been if they had tightened it up and given us one single book, with a single writer, a single art team, and a lot more care. Read Full Review

    As an admonition to all creators, not just the culprits named above: do your goddamn homework. If you get the name of a galaxy wrong, the galaxy isnt going to care. But if you depict one of the fastest economically successful nations in the world as a third world dung farm, youre doing a lot more damage than simply making your comics look bad. Read Full Review
