A glorious era ends
and a new one begins in "The Price of Victory." Right in the middle
of a bloody and messy battle, James Robinson finds the time to give
the biggest heroes of Earth-2 much deserved personality and depth,
while Nicola Scott knocks it out of the park with beautiful pencils
that effectively depict the ominous war against the forces of
Apokolips. All this, plus quick and to-the-point introductions for
Alan Scott, Jay Garrick, and Al Pratt; a fantastic first issue.
It is a shame the conflict ended the
way it did, but it was necessary in order to give this world the
uniqueness it needs, and open the doors to the immense possibilities
it holds within it. This book is without a doubt the star of the New
52's second wave, and a strong contender for best single comic of
2012, art and storywise.
