    Default Was "Our Worlds at War" a well recieved GN?

    I was thinking of getting it and just wanted to know what everyone else thought

    I'd give it a C. The Wonder Woman elements were some of the best work Phil Jimenez did during his run. But the overall crossover was purely surface. It's not that deep, not terrible, but nothing to write home about. There were some good bits, but a lot of mediocre.

    If you're just interested in the Wonder Woman side of the crossover, pick up WW: Paradise Found, which collects the WW tie-ins.

    I liked the red Zod laying the smackdown on Supes. That's about it. As was said, it was ok. Like a popcorn flick you wait to watch until it shows up on cable or dvd, light on substance but entertaining in parts. A good midnight read.

    It's little more than yet ANOTHER "All Hail Superman" event. (paying Carol $.05 for copyright fee) If you can stomach the DC machine genuflecting before the Great Big "S", then, sure, go ahead and pick it up.

    That storyline is what broke a streak where I had bought every regular Superman comic from The Man of Steel miniseries on. And I'm not a "completist" type, I just kept buying Superman stories as long as I enjoyed them. Our Worlds At War was just incoherent gibberish, though.

    I'm in the process of collecting all the Wonder Woman related trades I can. This was one of the next few on my list. Thanks for letting me know I should move it to the bottom of my list.

    (I'll probably just read it and be done with it.)

    Yeah, it's pretty terrible. I do think the Wonder Woman issues are among the stronger of the crossover, but that's not really saying much. The development with Hippolyta was probably the highlight for me.

    Don't. You be the judge of it. The story wasn't a DCU event per se. It was more a Superman event, kinda like BN right now. It had some great moments, and if you decide not to get it, you might miss out on some of the good amazon moments. Now, I'm not sure if the GN includes the WW issues, but if it does, you'll see some of the best Jimenez stuff. Developments with Darkseid, involving Diana; Hyppolita saves Greece. One of the best parts for me was the fact that a certain character decides to aid his best friend, instead of a loved one.

    Anyways, I suggest you be the judge of that yourself.
