This epic storyline has yet another spin off this week!

I love how massive this whole story has gotten. Just when you think that you have seen it all, another one shot comes along and shows us something new.

It is a lot of fun and this one shot here is pretty damn entertaining as well.

There are a whole ton of stories in this book.

The first one is written by Scott Snyder and Joshua Williamson. It is drawn by Dexter Soy and it is pretty damn spectacular.  It shows Wonder Woman going up the main villain of this series. It is quite exciting and probably the best story of the book.

Superman goes through a similar battle in the next story. This one is written by Madeline Visaggio and is drawn by Paul Pelletier. This story is just full of action that does not let up. It is very well done and left me a bit breathless.

We also get a really awesome collaboration with writer James Tynion IV and artist Alex Maleev. This one is called “The Batmen Who Laugh.” It is a brutal tale featuring the ramifications of that villain being a part of the DC Universe. This is probably the darkest tale of the issue and works well.

The rest of the issue has some hit and misses.

There is a Lois Lane story that is truthfully a little weak. The same can be said for the Atom, the Raven and Penguin stories. They almost felt like they were tacked on here and put in for not much reason. That’s okay, the last two stories of the book are pretty damn good.

The first is a John Constantine story written by  Matthew Rosenberg and drawn by Rob Guillory. This was a stand out and made me want a new Constantine series with this team.

Then, we get an awesome Swamp Thing story by writer Justin Jordan and artist Mike Henderson.

All in all, this is a decent book with some good stories in it.

RATING: A-
