*** POSSIBLE SPOILER WARNING ***

The story begins on top of the Daily Planet. A table is set for two with a happy couple seated. Readers see one of comics’ greatest couples enjoying their time alone: Clark Kent and Lois Lane. It’s a normal conversation which leads to Clark dropping to one knee to propose! However, the happy moment has an uninvited guest crash the party. GODZILLA HAS ARRIVED IN METROPOLIS!!!!

Meanwhile at the JLA Watchtower twelve hours prior, another dynamic duo is watching footage of Superman fighting crime. Readers know this pair as Green Lantern (Hal Jordan) and The Flash (Barry Allen). Their commentary shows concern for Superman burning himself out for trying too much.

CHECK OUT BY A THREAD!

They’re interrupted by Supergirl, who mentions she is filling in for Clark during his “vacation” after proposing. They notice on the screen Clark is flying into battle against Titano. By the time the rest of the Justice League arrives to help, Superman has saved the day.

All the while, readers find out that Titano was just a small part to a bigger scheme hatched by some familiar villains. How things play out will catch readers off guard. The latter portion of the book steers events into a clear direction that will please fans. The closing moments will leave no doubt that this is one story you absolutely can’t afford to miss!

Buccellato sets the stage for a truly memorable event. The introduction to Godzilla in the story establishes how big the moment is. The same can be said when Kong debuts as well. Buccellato gives the Superman sub-plot enough time to connect with readers, providing a welcomed break between all the action. With all the pop-culture titans involved, the pacing moves very smoothly.

The villains making their moves behind the scenes is pure superhero storytelling bliss. How all the parties ultimately come together is a prime example of this. For anyone who questioned how this would all work out, those fears were quieted quickly. This is going to be something special within this series.

Duce and Guerrero leave a lasting impression on readers with the Hollywood feel of this initial chapter. The two-page spread introduction of Godzilla has that “big fight feel” that the King of Monsters demands.

The conversations involving Superman’s “Big Question” reflects the team’s happiness for their friend via their reactions. The action sequences carry that classic “Saturday morning” vibe that readers have grown up with and love. The latter portion of the book offers a few more grand entrances before departing on a final image that one can’t help but be excited for what’s next.

FINAL POINT: 9 OUT OF 10

Combining some of Pop Culture’s biggest characters in one book is a challenege onto itself. The creative team of Buccallato, Duce and Guerrero give fans an unforgettable first impression with incredible writing mixed with energetic visuals. There’s no way after reading the first issue readers won’t be counting down the days for the next round at the LCS!
