“MAN DOWN” part two! Deimos and his armies have besieged the Trinity—so why is Steve Trevor helping the enemy?! Wonder Woman, Batman and Superman fight their way through one monstrous magical menace after another as Dark Strike’s stolen Skartaran weaponry is unleashed!
The art is by Patch Zircher and Tyler Kirkham with colors by Gabe Eltaeb. I really like the art throughout the issue. The characters look great; they’re expressive and well defined. Eltaeb’s colors are vivid and engaging.
I don’t care for the cover. The facial expressions are bizarre especially Superman’s. Wonder Woman’s body is also in a weird position. The colors are nice but the overall cover looks weird.
The issue doesn’t work on its own. The action is fine but in terms of story, there’s not a lot here. It could go somewhere interesting but right now, it’s a lot of unanswered questions. With the complete story, this issue might play better. But it’s kind of boring on its own.
I do not care for this issue. The action is fine and the art is great. I love how the issue looks. But it really feels like I’m reading an incomplete part of a story and that makes the issue boring to me.
