    The only disappointing thing about this miniseries is that after spending my entire comic reading life waiting for it, there's a sense of sadness to the idea that it's over. I mean this was a wonderful realization of the idea of the Avengers and the JLA being brought together for their first crossover, as Kurt Busiek and George Prez pull out all the stops and manage to deliver a story that can proudly stand alongside all the other classic stories that fans have recognized as the highlights of the super-hero genre, as this story was clearly written for the fanboys like myself who have been following the adventures of both these teams for decades. However, the story isn't a continuity laden affair that would drive off the new readers, but rather it hopefully acts as an eye-opening experience about how impressive both these teams can be. This story has acted as a celebration of all the things that make these two teams great, and this issue is littered with moments that make it clear both Read Full Review

    Busiek also has Krona admit, under prompting from a dubious Metron, that he no longer really seeks knowledge, only domination and conquest.

    George Perez was the perfect choice as artist. His drawing of all the heroes and villians as they fought is a battle to end all battles. It is magnificantly drawn. Read Full Review

    Of course, Im being churlish here. Im complaining about aspects of this series which are the very reasons for its existence. And dull as it might be, at least its a story that makes sense and has an internal consistency, which is more that can be said for the main Avengers title since Busiek left. Its perfectly all right if you like this sort of thing. Its just that I dont. Read Full Review
