You really have to admire the all-star cast of creators lined up for DC Universe Legacies.
Two legendary artists join writer Len Wein for this issue: George Perez and Walt Simonson. That would make this issue an automatic purchase, no matter what.
The main chapter of the book brings Perez back to his most influential assignment: Crisis on Infinite Earths. He also depicts the dark turn the DC Universe took after the death of the Doom Patrol (don't worry, they got better).
For the fifth issue in a row, this title offers a great recap of a key section of DC history as we see the ultimate disaster through the eyes of ordinary citizens.
Perez's artwork is stunning, and he has several chances to illustrate incredible crowd scenes and some old-fashioned action scenes.
The backup feature is drawn (in awesome fashion) by Simonson, and it gathers most of DC's "space" heroes, including (my personal favorite) Adam Strange, Captain Comet, Tommy Tomorrow and Space Ranger. It's a fast-paced bit of nostalgic fun, although the ending is a bit too pat. Still, always great to see those characters back in action.
So yet another outstanding issue in a strong series. We're halfway to the finish, but already I hate to see this series end!
