And yet Mister Miracle is still listening when Darkseid approaches him with just such a devilish proposition-if Scott sends his newborn son to Apokolips, there will be peace on New Genesis. Since when has Darkseid been famous for his honesty?! It'll b...

I enjoyed this, but the story so far feels like it's meant to be read as a whole than in single issues, since it raises more questions than it answers and it's not always easy to follow without actually knowing what's going on.

A blatant setup issue to sell the gimmick Warps comics. Not a lot actually happened beyond that. Gamora continues to be wholly unconvincing as a villain and the only good thing about this is the art.
