The concept is simple enough: give a number of artists free rein to do what they like in forty eight pages. The result is collected here. This will work or not work depending on your taste in comic book art. For me, the art styles of more artists than less just weren't to my personal liking, and thus affected my overall impression of the book. That said, however, the concept is a good one, with a mix of short stories and genres, some involving established characters, other ones new. The Tim Sale collection that starts things off is the strongest for me, particularly with the Batman-Catwoman encounter and the poignant Supergirl tale.
