I had a blast reading this issue. This is most definitely the best issue of the arc yet. The insane political intrigue of Apokalips comes to a head as the three main storylines converge in a rather satisfying manner. I was also pleased to know that this is the penultimate issue of the arc, so this has been a nice, breezy story for the most part.

 

Like the previous issue, there are three artists on board for the various storylines. It didn't annoy me as much this time around because the artists did a pretty good job at smoothing out the transition between style, and there were times when I forgot there were multiple artists on this book. In addition to the mostly consistent art styles, the art itself was actually quite good. Travis Moore is an artist I'm not very familiar with and I loved his sections the most.

 

In terms of the story, it delves more into Apokalips' people than I ever thought it would. We never consider the wants and needs of the actual citizens of Apokalips, and they get a moment to display their worth in terms of who they want to lead them. Obviously Superman is a prime candidate and I'm very interesting in where the story goes from here.

 

This was a zany, fun issue that contains some of the best Apokalips moments since perhaps DARKSEID WAR. Whether or not this arc is important to the overall universe or not, there are genuine stakes involved and I'm confident that Tomasi and Gleason will stick the landing in next month's conclusion.

Our Score:

9/10
