Greatest Hits #4 Review

Recently reviewed by me at CBR: Greatest Hits #4, about which I write the following sentences: "This is a Vertigo superhero comic in the 21st century, so of course it takes a post-postmodern attitude toward the alien invasion. While a first generation superhero deconstruction would have shockingly revealed that the alien invasion was staged as a somewhat futile attempt to sustain the team's waning popularity, 'Greatest Hits' operates under the assumption that, yeah, the alien invasion was probably faked -- that's the word on the streets, and the missing bit of film footage from that adventure seems to indicate something shady went on aboard the mothership. But there are a lot of unanswered questions about the invasion, and we aren't sure how it will all play out in the end, thanks to the twist in the final few pages of issue #4."
