BONUS REVIEW by "Doc" Schaefer


A crossover tale with the Legion of Doom storyline in Justice League. A storyline that I have no great love of to begin with. So why such high marks? Certainly not to the cameos or that annoying website Daily Planet page at the beginning of the story. It all comes down to (I can't believe I'm saying this) Bendis's dialog. Comic overachiever Brian Michael Bendis can write some fine dialog. And I am not referring to his battle interactions between heroes and villians! It's the seven pages of interaction between Clark (soon to tell the world he's Superman) Kent and Fire Chief Moore. Ever since her introduction to the Superman titles, she has proven to be an excellent secondary character. Dare I even say that she reminds me a bit of Lois Lane when she first appeared. (Action #1 1938 - for pity's sake go to a library!) These pages are brilliant and shows that Bendis understands real people. The rest of the book is simply blah-blah-blah battle fight stuff. This issue is like an old Chocolate covered Cherry that you find in the frig a few weeks after Valentine's Day. The outer shell ain't all that great but that middle section is still really quite tasty.

I give it 8 out of 10 Grahams
