    The one thing you'll keep thinking time and again as you turn the pages in TRAIL OF TIME is: I REALLY WISH THIS HAD JUST BEEN A WESTERN. It's very (very) rare for DC to spotlight their Western heroes these days (although HEX is back in print and in current DCU continuity again), and having not only Jonah Hex here, but Bat Lash, Scalphunter, El Diablo and Johnny Thunder - it's almost overload. But, it's what saves the book from a being complete waste of time. There's a terribly fo-complex plot involving a trio of magic heavy hitters in the DCU all jamming together to take over the Earth by splitting it into two (one sporting a red sun to help avoid creating yet another Superman), and then kicking back in their REAL WORLD style para-super-extra-dimensional pad for a couple hundred years, waiting to have all their plans foiled (curses!) by Superman, the Phantom Stranger and the Demon at the Very. Last. Second. In the meantime there is a waste of space plot involving two Lois Lanes (one of which is bumped off early on) on a story that has nothing to do with the main story at all, and then there is our gallery of DC's best Western heroes... which clearly is the cast and story Jeff Mariotte wanted to write, but for some reason DC would not let him. At least not without Superman, magic, Camelot, Hell and a near complete run down of all the major moments of genocide in human history. It's a heady mix, and brutal struggle between THE BLAND (everything dealing with Superman and magic) and the THE BOLD (our aforementioned Western heroes). But, you'll happily slog your way through Superman in the grip of tentacles and what style of haircut the Phantom Stranger sports (seriously, BIG MYSTERY SOLVED!) to get to everything Hex and Company bring to the table - which, apart from some good background deatil and immersion into their world, is very little. They're not up to fighting Gods with what amounts to nothing more than cap guns - so, even though they're there for the showdown, they're just mops to the brooms that Superman and Company are. It's a shame that this book had to ride side-saddle all the way through, because if Mariotte would have(or could have?)cut out the Superman selling point, this might have gone down as one of the best, and most original of the DC UNIVERSE series of books. Worth the read for the best of the West, but as for the rest, feel free to head them off at the pass and leave them in the dust.
