I bought this because I'm reading Justice League Dark and Deadman is my absolute favourite character in that. But I had never even heard of him before so when I saw this origin/background story about him I was so excited. It didn't exactly live up to my expectations but was an ok story. The art was great though and looking at all the great illustrations of Deadman kept me reading. (3/5)

The second part of this book is about the "Challengers of the Unknown" whom I've never heard of and wasn't really keen on reading but since it was included here, went ahead anyway. And I ended up enjoying way more than the Deadman story! Even though the basis sounded cheesy with the TV Reality Show set-up it ended up being a really good space quest adventure. The team travels around trying to find seven medallions, it turns out they've been "chosen" for this task. Several members get killed during the task and the story ends "For Now..." but I can't find that the characters have been picked up anywhere in the 'verse since. (4/5) ( )

I really like the idea of this DC Universe Presents title. It just has a chunk of issues for a certain character, every volume. So this time around, Deadman was the first one up and I liked his part a lot. Even though I'm pretty familiar with the Boston Brand story, and this wasn't much new in that category, but it was still pretty cool that the obscure characters are getting their own sort of royal treatment. The Challengers of the Unknown was kind of cool, but in the end it would have been better served with more time. Interested to see who DC Universe Presents tackles next. ( )
