An important action took place, but it still feels like filler issue.Also, the absence of Tony Daniel is a negative factor.

Grant Morrison takes an unusual path again, using this time the Club of Heroes.The members are unknown, cheesy and probably don't fit in a mystery story but the whole concept is pretty interesting.The art is gorgeous, J.H. Williams III is great at his job.

I don't think anyone could predict this conclusion.It is known that love can make you to do crazy things but the actions here had been a bit over the top.Anyway, this was a special story, written in realistic way and didn't follow the common superhero formula, also constitutes evidence that B-List characters can become interesting and have depth if you treat them right.Everyone played their roles more

The battle was interesting because Deathstroke took out the heroes using unique strategy to each one.Also, it's positive that the team consisted of less popular characters.The way which Meltzer explains how the identities remain secret is very clever and makes heroes not so innocent.

You can understand from the beginning that aren't going to happen typical superhero stuff here.Author's goal is to humanise the heroes so we feel compassion for them and see that they are real people who face daily problems.It's refreshing to read a comic with pretty much no action and a protagonist who isn't very famous.Elongated man was very likeable and it was nice his wife was a normal person more
