Cool review.

One thing I enjoy about Loeb's writing is the characters he picks! I love how this story involves Solomon Grundy, Poison Ivy, The Riddler, and a partnership between The Scarecrow and The Mad Hatter! Calendar Man is kind or a Mort - a "D"-List character. Here he's kind of rejuvenated. It's interesting you mention Hush; add Harley Quinn, drop Calendar Man, swap out Grundy for Killer Croc, and you have some similarities.

I enjoyed Loeb's introduction. It's sparse on extras; probably due to collecting thirteen issues. (Doesn't a tradition trade paperback collection usually collect six ? Some collect a twelve issue run - but thirteen?) There's a couple of scrip to panel pages and an afterward on one of the characters. It's mostly the meat and potatoes of the story.

Just read it for the first time! Good read. I especially enjoyed Jeph Loeb's introduction crediting Archie Goodwin.

Great review! I'm re-reading The Infinity Gauntlet for a couple of reasons - the film "adaptation"; and, recent word of Mr. Perez's retirement.

:) Spoiler Alert: yes, he was a figure from folklore. But there's not much there yet as to who or what the Applejack is...

@aros001: (Thanks for the feedback!) I avoid movie previews. That's just me. I wanted to be excited about Green Lantern, Man of Steel, Batman V Superman and Justice League. I'm hoping Aquaman, Shazam! and Wonder Woman 1984 turn things around.

@mrmonster (Thanks for the feedback!) Sorry for the gross generalization. I Googled and saw so many sources... ;)

@emperorb777 (Thanks for the feedback!) 'Strewth.

@xmangog__beastx (Thanks for the feedback) Ha!

It was okay. I guess I expected them to all be together again, like most of the other FF Number Ones I've read. This First was a first where they weren't all together. Here's to when Four become One again!
