I was a little freaked out by the cover, let me tell you. Not just because it was different than the siloutee one I was expecting, but the costumes for the "new" Flamebird and Nightwing are kinda creepy looking. I was kinda disappointed that Ian Churchill isn't the artist anymore, but have no complaints about his replacement. Very nice art. As for the story, I liked it, but I'm more than a little confused. What is Kandor exactly? Who is this Kal-El preaching and opressing everyone? Not confused on the plot itself so much, just not well versed in DC history I guess. All in all, good issue, just hoping this is the end of the delays.
