This volume contains the JLA stories where Morrison really kicks his insane-o madness into high gear. "Rock of Ages" in particular presents some of Morrison's stabs at stories and ideas he would later fully flesh out in FINAL CRISIS, ALL-STAR SUPERMAN and BATMAN R.I.P. There's still a lot if unfortunate jumping around in DC continuity that's never really addressed directly-- this was the time period when Wonder Woman was replaced by her mother, for example, and Superman was this weird blue thing for a while.

I actually enjoyed this more on second read, which I'm finding to be the case with a lot of Morrison's work. This is enhanced by Porter's increasing skill with the art chores. While still not totally skillful, Porter's composition and detail ratchets up quite a few degrees.
