    Will even Galactus fall to Krona's mad quest? At the end of this issue, I have no idea what to expect next, and that's the best place I could think of to be. Bravo! Read Full Review

    Even the comicraft lettering exhibits consideration. The fonts for Batman's mystery guest and Thor speak of their characters. All the talent behind Avengers/JLA make the book triumphant fun. Read Full Review

    I know there are flaws (the Thing sounds like a blathering idiot during his brief appearance and I couldnt wait for him to disappear), but I simply got a kick out of reading this story. Sure, no one really cares about the big cosmic beings that bookend this chapter, but thats not the point, is it? And sure, seeing as how the teams will most likely work together from here on out and Superman will undoubtedly realize hes been wrong all along and grow as a character when he apologizes, Ill most likely have the same reaction to the rest of the series. But that doesnt mean the journey to those moments wont be worth the price of admission. Read Full Review

    This is an issue that is going to appeal to longtime fans far more than readers who have just come aboard, and it also helps if one has a fairly solid grasp of the histories of both teams involve in this crossover, as Kurt Busiek isn't shying away from digging pretty deep into the lineup of both groups. Now this expanded focus does result in a rather crowded issue in which even the main event battles have to struggle for space, but in a project like this there is something to be said for this quantity over quality approach, as I'm sure there's at least half a dozen moment in this issue that will leave every fan happy. I mean how can one not love the idea of Darkseid getting his hands on the Infinity Gauntlet, or Photon's highly effective attack upon Green Lantern. There's also the Vision's discovery that the Red Tornado is more than just a simple artificial construct, and the rivalry between Quicksilver and the Flash made for a fine little exchange. All in all, this is a highly engagin Read Full Review

    You know you're gonna buy this, and there's nothing I can say to stop you from doing that. It just seems that Kurt Busiek has a bit too many horses in front of his cart, and the story's management suffers a result. With a slight sense of completion, it appears next issue starts a whole new story, and it may rectify the current chaos. Read Full Review
