Loved it! A brilliant start that calls back a lot of the classic WS stuff while bringing it into the DC continuity. Funny, action packed, cool. Rosenburg does a great job and Segovia's art is gorgeous.

APPROPRIATE-SIZED FIFTH ISSUE! There are fights to be fought, bargains to be struck, and roads to be hit. But when it all comes together, will it be enough to tear the gang apart? Alabama is betting her life that it won't.

So just stop it, don’t even think that way…and even if that were the case, there’s no way Mr. Freeze would return to k...
