Tom Taylor ’ s writing: Tom Taylor has once again created a ascinating and intense story about how the rivalry between Superman and Batman continues to escalate as both heroes are trying to figure out ways to rotect he world from each other.

A great aspect of th series was the bantering between Harley Quinn, Green Arrow and Black Canary as I hink that they ere the funniest characters in that ntire series so far and I liked the ay that they all bring humor to his tal, even though the majority of th tory is pretty dark.Jheremy Raapack, Tom Derenick, Bruno Redondo and Mike S.

Miller ’ s artwork: Just like the previous volume, the collaboration between Jheremy Raapack, Tom Derenick, Bruno Redondo and Mike S.

Interestingly though I must accep that I am enjoying this story, particularl since we get to see Superman ’ s more aggressive side, it till eels like nother “ Batman vs.

I as quit prepared to pat him on his back a bit just for trying.Turns out, that was not necessary.Warning: Spoilers for previous volume ahead! In thi second volume, Superman is driven to the brink after Joker kills Lois.

He 's on Team-Superman, but betrayal is niggling around in the back of his head, elling him something is potentially wrong with the way things are beginnin to unfold.Especially when the death toll starts mounting.

After thi, everyone starts yawning again, because they imply do n't care who else gets taken out.Did Jean Grey just explode?* shrug* Well, I 'm confiden it wo n't hav the first time ... In this one, every death counted.

He struggle to ake it so that you really felt like nyone was safe, without mowing down the entire cast of characters.So how does Luthor showing up affect things? Not how I expected, that 's for sure ... Lex comes into he story wearing his

Ye even Alfred can get these two to calm down long enough to buil a few bridges ... before they start setting fire to more.And with Damien 's insider knowledge of the way Bruce thinks, it 's not looking good for The B-Team.Especially since most of the heavy-hitting superpowers have sided with Superman.But you never count Batman out.He 's always got a contingency plan.

I hope they plan on keeping this title around for a little hile, because it 's uickly becoming THE thing I wanted to read from DC.

scene at the nd that is so freakin' Awesome/Disturbing/AWESOME, that I want it deserves a Special Mention.No. I 'm never lookin to ask you what happens, but it ha certainl ba that the above mentioned kid was practically vibrating when he came running out to the pool to find me.* Miss Anne!

When Superman ( view spoiler) [ Yeah, still not telling you!

sign of the times, I guess…) – but what the ell, I o my best to roll with the punches.The story also gains more political relevance in this first volume, as it increasingly turns into a thinly-veiled allegory on America ’ s so-called War on Terror, casting some superheroes as proponents of super-powered, completely undemocratic, proactive and ultimately deadly mega-surveillance, while others come to this conclusion that this approach to “ crime fighting ” may go a little far, and that maybe it would be possibl to take the old super-surveillance to the extreme.It ’ s stupid to see how far to the political right the discourse has shifted by now.

It is a picture of world that casts proponents of more and more extreme forms of social control as fundamentally reasonable, benevolent, even heroic people who, like Superman and Wonder Woman, are concerned with our safety and nothing else.Could all this possibly have omething to do with thi act that fighting games, both the fictional and the real-life variety, have become increasingly profitable for those who control American politics and media?

Superman, Green Lantern and Wonder Woman are forced to fight Aquaman and the legions of Atlantis.

This nice funny story and th good annual.This 2nd vol of this series carries on the strange, dark and morally ambiguous tale.

he dialogue has its amusing ( Green Arrow 's cave) and dark moments ( Superman pointing out to Lobo that he ca n't regenerate himself in side the sun).

Read this cover to cover in one sitting and now the long wait for the next collection begins.Taylor fills this book with more memorable moments including the fight with Black Adam, Wonder Woman in Mogadishu, an Apokolips invasion, Superman and Flash playing chess, Damien being a dick, and Harley having individual therapy with Lobo.

That series has been more enjoyabl to me than anything I ’ ve read in any of the Justice League titles in some time.While some of he thing is over the top, has been done before, and the art is not as consistent overall ( albeit good) as he irst volume, I only find myself eagerly awaiting thi next collection.
