I've been avoiding reading this, since most of the pre-Crisis comics that I've read, particularly ones by Marv Wolfman, are just ridiculously cheesy. And while this is certainly cheesy, it's also pretty epic and amazing. Or, perhaps, my tolerance for cheese has gone up over the years.

It's really fun playing "Where's Waldo?" with all of the DC characters that George Perez has drawn in here. And I really do mean "all"; You've got everyone from Sgt. Rock to Jonah Hex. This feels like the fond farewell of the old school comics characters, after they finally found out that social misfits love comics more than normal children. When heroes were heroes, and character deaths had yet to become expected and meaningless.
