REVIEWS

Boosterrific Review: This book simultaneously feels rushed and unnaturally decompressed (especially the dialogue). It is a jumbled mess of intra-squad violence, placid denouement, and character posturing for the post-Flashpoint DCnU. To be fair, it really isn't a terrible book of its own accord, but it is clearly the final product of some really bad stories preceding it; after all, a desert can only be as good as its ingredients.
