DC comics "Invasion Secret No More" TPB - basis for CW Network's 4 tv show crossover

I just finished reading the 1980s DC Comics Graphic Novel trade paperback called "Invasion, Secret No More." Although a huge DC Comics' superhero fan, I hadn't read it before. I picked it up because the story line is going to be the basis for the upcoming CW Network 4 TV show crossover of my 4 favorite TV shows: The Flash, Supergirl, Arrow and Legends. 
  Honestly, I didn't care for it. This is only the second big "event" comic I didn't care for. The other was "Final Crisis." The latter because it was depressing and everyone died. This one, because it was mostly all about weird aliens and not really superheroes and because the writing and the artwork were not my favorites. 
  For DC Comic book aficionados, the late 80s was a time when the Justice League didn't have any regular members, other than Batman (and he was used really poorly) and the artwork and stories were not appealing to me. It was also the time of "Justice League International" (another not so good time in the history of the group). Usually I don't write up bad reviews, but I had all to do to get through this. 

   On the BRIGHT SIDE- I know that the CW Network 4 TV series superhero crossover event will be much, much better. It all stars Nov. 28th.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
