Perez is still incredibleBy George HagenauerFirst I got this book by mistake and that context is important for understanding this review. I thought it was going to be a return of the old Batman somebody else team ups- it isn't it is a complex multi-part story in the DC universe- which would not be bad as I like Waid as a writer but I hate books with a gazillion characters since it dilutes what can be done with each
character.And yes this is similar to my review on volume one but this volume is essentially a continuation of that volume- like volume one you will need a pretty good background in DC history especially silver age era to get the most out of the story. If I didn't read comics from 1957 to about 1978 this may ahve been a different experienceWhat saves this book is Perez's art- he is incredible in his detail and interest in drawing Virtually every character. Jerry Ordway finishes the series and does a very good job on itIf you like these big DC universe stories this is a great bookthey are not my cup of tea but in spite of that Perez's art saved the day.(Review 6 in my attempt to review every graphic novel I read this year!)7 of 8 people found the following review helpful. Mixed bag of team-upsBy Kid KyotoThe Brave and the Bold is a neat idea. With some titanic talents at the helm, writer Mark Waid and artists George Perez and Jerry Ordway the book pair off various DC characters. Some are proven vets like Superman or Wonder Woman, others are second tier like Powergirl or Aquaman and some are (rightfully) obscure like the Metal Men or Silent Knight.Their stories are tied together by a common foe, an immortal alchemist named Megistus. And then everything comes together in the final chapter.The stories are fairly simple and done in one issue. In one tour-deforce Perez and Waid squeeze 3 complete team up stories in one issue. The story is just about perfect. Various obscure characters show up, do their bit, make you smile and leave.But the final battle really goes no where. The foe is as dull as a thousand other mad scientists and the battle is so crowded with heroes none of them stand out. Superstar comics writer Mark Waid, the author of KINGDOM COME, is joined by artist George Perez, the artist of THE NEW TEEN TITANS and CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS, for the second hardcover collection of sensational team-up of the World's Greatest Super-Heroes. This volume features Wonder Woman, Power Girl, the Flash, the Doom Patrol, Hawkman the Atom, the Blackhawks and other characters joining forces to battle the forces of evil they couldn't handle alone.
