Thoroughly enjoyed this one, particularly Beast’s introspection juxtaposed by Mikhail’s personal voyage. I found the pacing and handling of the two primary narratives to be a refreshing divergence from previous issues. Looking forward to seeing this unfold.

Yet another stellar installment in this run. At times the themes and motifs of this issue feel repetitive of previous ones; however, the stunning artwork and poignant vignettes of Superman and his most recognizable allies continue to make this series a necessity to check out.

Though the narrative in Wonder Girl has been interesting thus far, this issue slowed the pace a bit too much for my liking. I also felt as though the plot got a bit more convoluted. However, I'm still engaged in the story and looking forward to the next installment, and no one can deny that Jones' art is absolutely superb.

I've enjoyed this series from the start and have found Thompson's narrative to be particularly engaging. I'm also partial to Anya Corazon and have been so happy to see her in this run. However, my favorite component of this series, and this issue in particular has been the artwork. Casagrande, de Latorre, Bellaire, and Petit truly bring some captivating panels to this issue.

This series isn't my favorite DC run right now, but I have enjoyed the dynamics between the characters. I adore Stitch, and particularly liked the shift in focus from the Red X arc that I feel has gotten drawn out and contrived. Overall, a decent installment that has a pretty wild cliffhanger.
