Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

In this collected installment of DC Comic's The New 52, everything seems excitingly topsy-turvy. With the Justice League apparently gone haywire or extinct, Earth is taken over by a ravenous Crime Syndicate who impolitely usurp control of the DC Universe. Fortunately, someone is there to save poor oppressed earthlings. Believe it or not, it's Lex Luthor!

From the Publisher
"[FOREVER EVIL] sees Johns diving headlong into a realm that he's succeeded in so often in the past."—IGN

"Heavy and dark, with an epic 'all bets are off' kind of feel to it."—Craveonline

"David Finch has undoubtedly been one of the best go-to artists for event art, and from the opening panels his work is cinematic."—Newsarama

"With its incredible amount of detail, [FOREVER EVIL] marks the start of an exciting new story arc with an impressive scope of characters, Johns' varied character work, and Finch's ambitious art."—Comic Book Resources

Publishers Weekly
09/15/2014
This collects a seven-issue “event” that finds the Crime Syndicate—alternate-reality “evil” versions of the Justice League—taking over our world. Soon after they arrive, the group mysteriously (and unbelievably) gets rid of most of the heroes on Earth, leaving it to unlikely bad guys like Lex Luthor and Black Adam teaming up with Batman to save the world. Johns delivers a few cool superhero moments, but they’re not nearly enough to overcome the story’s gimmicky-ness and its lack of emotional resonance. Bizarrely, despite the large number of characters, only two women get anything resembling legitimate page time. Catwoman is Batman’s glorified “arm candy,” while Superwoman is apparently sleeping with three of the primary Crime Syndicate villains—Ultraman (alternate-reality Superman), Owlman (alternate-reality Batman), and Alexander Luthor (alternate-reality Shazam)—all of whom think she might be having their baby. It’s painfully embarrassing that the only two female characters featured in the book are relegated to such awful stereotypes. The art is overworked and relentlessly dark, every page filled to bursting. Though there are too many characters for any artist to handle easily, the art never finds a way to breathe or to give any of them a moment to shine. (Sept.)
