I have to say that I'm not a fan of the 'holiday' themed comic books. While they're usually over sized and have a bunch of different creators working on them, they never really have any staying power. The reality of it is, after you read it, you'll probably never go back to it. There usually aren't any major ramifications in the stories but then again, that's not really the point here. Despite my reluctance to read these 'specials,' I decided to read this and see if I'd change my mind.
In terms of the 'special' issues, this one wasn't bad. I could even say it was better than I thought it'd be. There were some pretty good and fun stories. Others were just okay. The nice thing about these issues is we get to see a wide variety of creators working with the different characters. The main focus is these are meant to be fun. With the way people are concerned with the cost of comics, I have to ask who (besides me) is buying these?
How often can you open the comic these days and see a Bizarro story? Adam Schlagman and Mark Bagley actually made me start liking Guy Gardner a tiny bit. Also thanks to this issue, I got blown away by Scott Clark's art on the Wonder Woman story.
If you dig these kind of stories or really like Halloween, you'll enjoy reading these stories. It is a pretty fun comic but nothing you'll majorly miss out on if take a pass on it.
