Once again I seem to be on my own when I say I enjoyed this book. As I stated its not as perfect as its predecessor of sorts, "52", but it's still an intriguing read so far. The only way I can see this getting terrible is if the climax is disappointing, which I'm not ruling out, but I'm not going to let that ruin my experience.
People complain that there are far too many characters in this to make it readable, but I didn't find this the case at all. Every story seems to be building to one point, but it's still unclear what that point is. As of the end of this volume we still have no idea what's pulling all of these seemingly unrelated events together.
All the stories seem to be moving forward nicely. Of course some are more exciting than others and some have some writing holes in there, but you know what, I didn't mind. I have previously not had any introduction to most characters like Mary Marvel, Karate Kid, Pied Piper/Trickster and Holly Robinson, but I'm finding I'm liking most of them so far. Well I'm not hating any of them so that's a good thing right? There are a few issues where (I'm guessing) cross over from other titles at the time this took place. The issue with Black Canary's hens do and wedding are the most prominent. I haven't read that book, but I could gather what was going on never-the-less.
I love big series like this that have a bunch of characters. Especially when the multiverse is concerned. There were some very cool run in's with other universe counterparts, my favourite being Earth-15 with Jason Todd as Batman and Earth-3's Crime Society. For some it might be confusing, but I found it awesome. For the most part the art is also really good, a few issues are a bit meh but nothing terrible.
If you enjoy big build ups with multiple stories intertwining then give this a go. I already ordered volume 3, but I can't find the 4th and last instalment anywhere. Well anywhere thy isn't WAAAAAYYYYYYY overpriced. Hopefully I find the needle in the haystack with that one!

Read information about the authorPaul Dini is an American television producer of animated cartoons. He is best known as a producer and writer for several Warner Bros./DC Comics series, including Star Wars: Ewoks, Tiny Toon Adventures, Batman: The Animated Series, Superman: The Animated Series, The New Batman/Superman Adventures, Batman Beyond and Duck Dodgers. He also developed and scripted Krypto the Superdog and contributed scripts to Animaniacs (he created Minerva Mink), Freakazoid, Justice League and Justice League Unlimited. After leaving Warner Bros. In early 2004, Dini went on to write and story edit the popular ABC adventure series Lost.
Paul Dini was born in New York City. He attended the Stevenson School in Pebble Beach, California on an art scholarship. He attended Emerson College in Boston, where he earned a BFA degree in creative writing. (He also took zoology classes at Harvard University.)
During college, he began doing freelance animation scripts for Filmation, and a number of other studios. In 1984, he was hired to work for George Lucas on several of his animation projects.
The episodes of the He-Man and the Masters of the Universe cartoon that were written by Dini have become favorites amongst the show's fans over the internet, although despite this as well as contributing to interviews on the released box sets of the series, Dini has made no secret of his distaste for Filmation and the He-Man concept. He also wrote an episode of the Generation One Transformers cartoon series and contributed to various episodes of the Ewoks animated series, several of which included rare appearances from the Empire.
In 1989, he was hired at Warner Bros. Animation to work on Tiny Toon Adventures. Later, he moved onto Batman: The Animated Series, where he worked as a writer, producer and editor, later working on Batman Beyond. He continued working with WB animation, working on a number of internal projects, including Krypto the Superdog and Duck Dodgers, until 2004.
He has earned five Emmy awards for his animation work. In a related effort, Dini was also the co-author (with Chip Kidd) of Batman Animated, a 1998 non-fiction coffee table book about the animated Batman franchise.
Dini has also written several comics stories for DC Comics, including an acclaimed oversized graphic novel series illustrated by painter Alex Ross. (A hardcover collection of the Dini and Ross stories was published in late summer 2005 under the title The World's Greatest Superheroes.) Other books written by Dini for DC have featured his Batman Animated creation Harley Quinn as well as classic characters Superman, Batman, Captain Marvel and Zatanna.
Best known among Dini's original creations is Jingle Belle, the rebellious teen-age daughter of Santa Claus. Dini also created Sheriff Ida Red, the super-powered cowgirl star of a series of books set in Dini's mythical town of Mutant, Texas. Perhaps his greatest character contribution is the introduction of Harley Quinn (along with designs by Bruce Timm) on Batman: The Animated Series.
In 2001 Dini made a cameo appearance in Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back during the scene in which Jay and Silent Bob wear ridiculous looking costumes for a film being directed by Chris Rock, in which Dini says to them "you guys look pretty bad ass".
In 2006, Dini became the writer for DC Comics' Detective Comics. That same year, he announced that he was writing a hardcover graphic novel starring Zatanna and Black Canary. In 2007, he was announced as the head writer of that company's weekly series, Countdown. Paul Dini is currently co-writing the script for the upcoming Gatchaman movie. Dini is also currently writing a series for Top Cow Productions, based in a character he created, Madame Mirage.
Paul Dini is an active cryptozoologist, hunter and wildlife photographer. On a 1985 trip to Tasmania, he had a possible sighting of a Thylacine. He has also encountered a number of venomous snakes, a Komodo Dragon and a charging Sumatran Rhi
