If you're like me and you just wanted to read some stuff leading up to Metal, then the first two comics in this book are good to read. They directly relate to and give you important back stories on Metal. The rest of the book seems like filler so DC can charge more money for the book. They're all issues from other DC stories that are in here completely out of context. What's worse is that they're collected in other volumes, along with the other parts of the stories they're from. So, you're better off just buying those volumes and reading the stories there, unless you've read them already and won't be lost reading the issues collected here.
