Are Those Metallos?

DC Comic fans have multiple options when it comes to Multiverse action these days.  You can't turn around without tripping over a different Earth or character.  Unfortunately, this book is the weakest of them all.  It's a shame because this book has a cool cast of characters and the basis of a cool story, but the problem lies in it's execution.  The dialogue is horrendous and the plot is moving at a snail's pace. If you want an example, check out this issue because the problems that plague this series are all here.  Better yet, skip this issue and save your money. This has been a public service announcement from Weird Science.

This issue continues the battle on Nil.  Batman and Zod exchange awful dialogue as Nightmare Robin notices something familiar about the Metallo Army they are fighting.  Cyborg joins in and Robin realizes they are fighting...Metallos.  Great. Batman calls for backup and  the team led by Sir Hal the Green Lantern joins the fray and Batman informs them they are fighting Metallos.  Okay, we get it. They are fighting Metallos!

Meanwhile, the team of Flash, Luthor, Catwoman, Supergirl and Wonder Woman get transported elsewhere and while Flash scouts the area, Luthor spouts ridiculous dialogue about the Multiverse.  Then Flash discovers something that changes everything and makes the Battle all the more desperate.

I like Dan Abnett.  His He-Man book is a Weird Science favorite and almost everything else of his is good.  Except this book.  It's not bad.  Bad is too good for this garbage.  It is awful and I hope it ends soon so I won't have to read and review it anymore.

Christian Duce does an okay job on art, but who really cares.  I wish him all the luck in the World and hope he goes on to bigger and better books.  At least he gets to draw some crazy characters.

Bits and Pieces:

This book is horrible, plain and simple.  Maybe if everyone passes on it, it will get canceled and a better book can rise from the ashes of this mess.  One can only hope.
