By | Feb 19, 2018 | Reviews

With Rebirth now in full-swing, having not one but two big, delayed event books going on simultaneously, I thought I’d be fun to look back at a story that does more in six issues than a lot of events do in ten. Granted they’re oversized issues but my point still stands. So, without further ado, […]
