While I could discuss the entire series, this is just about issue #8.
It's a beautiful book. Wonderfully drawn by Ivan Reis. Every page is detailed and works with the flow of the story. The massive double page spreads a joy to behold (an the quadruple page spread is the highlight of the book.
Story wise, it's a little predictable. We always kinda knew what was going to happen, but not the why's and the how's. Now we do. It's still top notch Geoff Johns written and there are enough unpredictable moments within.
As for spoilers...
