*sigh* Did not care for the issue.

Why can't we have the old style DC title pages with more pic than words (dont like this Marvel wannabe feature done this way)?
How is Grodd back from falling off that cliff... off this world?
Who is Nzame and why kill a sacred monkey child?
Spin powers still confuse anyone?
Edwar is quite the a tough cookie?
What, no Linda?
Sister Box? Fifth World tech? Dark Side Club? No break from Countdown disappointment?

Not excited about waiting for these answers. On the PLUS side:

Raymond is developing into a viable supporting character pain in the tushka.
Grodd panels look good.
FINALLY it looks like they're doing something for the better [status changing] for with the BradyWest kids:






Decide round 3 of the BATO poll:

Actually, I think it's really picked up with this issue. Since Peyer started on the book, it's had an energy that was lacking during "The Wild Wests" and, earlier, "Lightning in a Bottle." I was really concerned that DC was doing yet another 6-parter instead of writing some stories where lots of things happened, but it's been moving fast from page one.

I do think there were some missteps in the first two issues, but I quite enjoyed this one. Plenty of action, two super-villains (one classic, one new with an intriguing, if hard to explain, power), Wally and Jay both get screen time, the twins are part of the story without taking over.
