STORY: Jon Rivera, Cecil Castellucci, Jody Houser, Gerard Way, Steve Orlando, Magdalene Visaggio ART : Sonny Liew, Dale Eaglesham, Langdon Foss, Mirka Andolfo, Ty Templeton, Aco, Frank Quitely (covers) This was a most conundrum inducing story/event/crossover for me as a comic reader generally and as a DC comic reader specifically.
