"Justice League of America" and "Justice Society of America" start up a new crossover, but so far it's less than interesting.

Superman: War of the Supermen #4

The story of the "War of the Supermen" started on May 1, and draws to a close twenty-five days later. That makes this a pretty good approximation of one hundred minutes, as far as publishing goes.

As far as free comics go, this one is not bad, but DC set the bar awfully high with last year's "Blackest Night" #0. This is no "Blackest Night."
