I have to say, the most impressive thing about 52 is that DC has managed to produce a comic of this quality on a weekly basis. Makes you wonder why Astonishing X-Men and the Ultimates 2 keep taking so long. In this issue we get to see what happened to all those heroes who were stranded in space at the end of the Infinite Crisis. Most of the results were pretty gruesome, too. Think the â€œAmalgamâ€ concept from the early 90â€™s only a little closer to the Megatron-Ratchet hybrid from Simon Furmanâ€™s Transformers comic. This series has been heavily focusing on the 3rd tier heroes rather than the Holy Trinity, which has been fantastic. This series (and this issue, in particular) is the best Steel has been written since Grant Morrisonâ€™s run on JLA. This issue also starts a new arc with Starfire, Animal Man and Adam Strange, and I canâ€™t wait to see where this one leads. The History of the DC Universe has been a fairly good back-up story, though theyâ€™ve spent a bit too much time on the Crisis on Infinite Earths and seem to have just quickly glossed-over the era previous to it.
