Just awful. I will be so happy when DC stops with all of this Metal garbage. On top of another horrible story, it also features truly awful art by Riley Rossmo. I really don't understand how he has a job drawing comics for a major company.

Bendis continues his attempt to destroy the Legion. Hopefully he'll be off this title very soon and a writer will be on the book.

The highlight of this issue was seeing Legion legend, Mike Grell draw a page. Otherwise, there was some good art, some decent art and some absolutely awful art that looks like a first grader drew it.

Not awful, but a lot of money for what's there. The two things that stood out to me about this issue are:

Superheroes for Hire - Oct 4, 2020

Your answer to Scott Snyder lies in the fact that he's going mostly independent after this. Clearly he is not writing this series based on any ownership in the ongoing narrative after this series ends. He isn't going to be the Justice League ongoing writer like after Metal. He isn't going to be a character book writer like for Batman. This was supposed to be basically the whacky conclusion to his splintered version of the DC Universe.

Superheroes for Hire - Oct 4, 2020

DC editorial convinced him to make this "count" so they could try another patch on their broken continuity. I still don't think any of this will really matter going forward. That's always just the buzz word these companies tell you to get your buy-in to huge costly events. "Read this. It changes everything." I only bought issue 1 out of morbid curiosity, and I wasn't enticed to read further.
