(Received from Netgalley for review.)
Is this what we’re going to do now? Every “year” will have some sort of themed enemy that Superman will eventually vanquish? Last year was magic, and now we’re on to the Greek gods. So seemingly on a whim, the Greek gods have decided that Superman’s rule is a blasphemy against themselves, and so go to war with his side what Batman and company sort of… awkwardly watch? Because they’re very outclassed.
Still, even with slight plot justification, there’s some really fun stuff in here: Wonder Woman throwing down with Superman, the issue centered on Renee Montoya, and lots of scattered character moments that remind me why I look forward to each new volume of this series. There’s still a lot of good in the series, even if I do feel like it’s maybe losing its way a little bit. At this point, I’m kind of glad that the book will be ending after Year Five, because I feel like its losing momentum a bit. Still, that does make it easier for me to stay hopeful. Buccellato ended Year Three in a great way, and maybe he’ll pull something fantastic out for Year Four.
