Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Determined to leave no bit of the events leading up to its much-publicized miniseries Infinite Crisis undepicted-or unmerchandised-DC offers this action-packed but unengaging tale of interstellar warfare. Planet Thanagar was the home of Hawkman and Hawkgirl before murderous fanatics devastated it. Rann is the adopted home of Earthling superhero Adam Strange. Now refugee cultists are plotting to revive their demon-god, Onimar Synn, the Eater of Souls. Other planets and empires dabble in the struggle, and other second-rank heroes, such as Green Lantern, become involved, too. A lot of stuff happens-yet the overall effect isn't so much high drama as constant, busy fussing. Gibbon's script keeps the actors moving briskly, and efficiently selects details from the overstuffed history of the DC universe, while the team of artists is fully professional in rendering hyper-detailed battle scenes and big panels full of muscular male and female bodies. These stories are supposed to prepare readers for DC's the Infinite Crisis series and a new kind of DC Universe. But there's more perspiration than inspiration here. (Jan.)

    TENUOUS, FLAWED STORY

    The Rann Thanager War is another of the Countdown to Infinite Crisis storylines that will probably upset a lot of readers by its incomplete ending. This is honestly a stand alone story and its status as being part of the Infinite Crisis is a bit tenuous at best and only hinted at in the last few pages. The story opens as Adam Strange of Rann has tracked down Hawkman to give him the grim news that his home planet of Thanagar has been destroyed. Seems a rogue Thanagarian zealot has used a planetary teleportation device to move Rann into Thanagar's orbit, sending that planet into its sun. Rann helps evacuate thousands of Thanagarians to their world before they are incinerated. The fragile peace on Rann does not last long as Thanagar survivors soon begin a revolt again Rann and war erupts. The war soon has other major races lining up and taking sides in what could be a galactic battle. Tamaran, Durla, Throneworld, Colu, Khund, the Dominion, Psions of Vega, even the L.E.G.I.O.N. all become involved, not too mention Kyle Rayner and Kilowog of the Green Lantern Corps, and Captain Comet. Back on what's left of Thanagar a high priest has summoned forth one of the mythical seven devils, the soul-eating Onimar Synn whose vast power can tip the balance in the war against Rann at the cost of thousands of souls. Synn's goal is to eventually claim the Rann Zeta beam technology for his own so he can virtually have the whole universe to devour. With so many races involved and so much back door politicking and negotiating between all of these races, it borders on tedious to keep everyone, and every plotline straight. Synn's role as a major villain in the vein of Darkseid comes up short. He simply does not seem all that intimidating or all that much a serious threat. He's eventually dispatched in relatively short order so the final lead in to Infinite Crisis can be surprised on the reader. Writer Dave Gibbons almost seemed rushed to get to the books inconclusive ending. A pity because there is a pretty good story here. The art by Ivan Reis and Marc Campos is very good and the action is handled well. Solid without trying to be to 'showy'. The Rann Thanagar War is a good idea but not without some major flaws.
