VERY FINE/NEAR MINT
BONUS REVIEW by John "Doc" Schaefer
(W) Jeff King, Scott Lobdell (A) Ed Benes (CA) Carlo Pagulayan, Jason Paz
Free of the reign of Telos, a pantheon of heroes unite at last in an effort to defend their collective cities - but they did not count on the threat of Deimos, who suddenly seems to possess the power to tear the Multiverse apart at the seams!

Is DC Comics writing especially for people with A.D.D.? I can't even recap without it taking 1/2 of a page! Fighting between cities has now stopped (it never really started!) and now it's a grand team-up free for all with people who back Deimos, the nutjob from the old Warlord comic and those who don't? And what about the fate of the defeated cities? We saw the Justice Riders defeated and their city just remained dead. Meanwhile, the cities and everyone in them turn to dust and blow away? How about just a tad bit of continuity from issue to issue?!! Oh and plotting wise, it's hard to believe that here in the main title we're heading for the final battle while in all the issue two's we're just getting to the red skies and earthquakes. I was also personally disappointed that the Kingdown Come Earth heroes decided to fight for Deimos. Bit of a bummer. For a crossover event, this book is lacking in creativity and basic storytelling skills.
I give it 4 out of 10 Grahams
