it was amazing
Read in July, 2009

This book should be a mess. It isn't. With 4 different writters, it reads like a season of 24. This book captures the first 13 of 52 weeks of comics.

It's cool for several reasons:
1) Makes you care about B level comic book hero. Don't know Steel, Booster Gold, Black Adam, etc... you will.
2) Weaves a complex set of stories that you care about "week" to "week".
3) Contains writter commentary that makes the stories more engaging for those of us who are not comic book nerds.

A worthy read.
