SUMMARY: The Dark Multiverse is revealed in all its devastating danger—and the threats it contains are coming for the DC Universe! It will take the combined might of the World’s Greatest Heroes as you’ve never seen them before to face what’s coming their way!
COMMENTS: I was excited Metal was coming. I was excited that Neil Gaiman’s Sandman was joining the DC Universe. We had seen OZ and the button, I was excited about the Watchmen joining the DC Universe. I was expecting a grand crossover spanning the 52 Universes that make up the DC Multiverse. I was expecting a Dark Justice League. What I got was a ton of fluff, a few bad jokes, War World and a Hawkman centric JLA story. I hope this gets better as we move on but I guess it would have to get better, because I can’t imagine it getting worse. The art was outstanding but the story was all set up with no payoff of any kind. DISAPPOINTMENT IS… When you expect a connection between the DC Universe, Neil Gaiman’s Sandman and Alan Moore’s Watchmen, and what you get is Hawkman, Red Tornado and Lady Blackhawk. There was a Sandman cameo on the last page, so maybe next issue.
