Justice League Beyond 2.0 #12 Review

Written by: Christos Gage
Art by: Iban Coello
Cover Price: $0.99
Release Date: January 25, 2014

System Override part 4 of 8

Brainiac continues the fight and the Justice League are fighting back.  The League is spread thin and one member may have betrayed them. but what is Braniac's real plan?

Christos Gage is firing on all cylinders and giving readers one hell of a fun comic.  This issue is basically one huge battle and it is awesome.  Braniac is really giving it to the Justice League, but the best part is that Gage keeps us guessing as to Brainiac's plan.  By the end of the issue, the reader will know a little more and believe me, it doesn't look good for Earth.

The reason this book works so well is Gage's ability to juggle all these different characters so well.  Each one just fits in the Universe and Gage makes it all work. He also juggles locations with equal ease. This is a global tale and the heroes are literally fighting Brainiac everywhere on Earth.   I also love the cameos and this issue has two of my favorite characters.  It seems as if the whole DCU is on the offensive and Brainiac is still kicking their butts.

The twist in this issue is something I thought was coming, but then Gage twists the twist to reveal the character in questions true nature.  A true hero is born and then possibly killed.  I guess I'll have to wait two weeks to see.

Iban Coello's art is very good.  He keeps up with the crazy action and every character looks great.  Believe me, there are a bunch of characters so this is a feat indeed.  I mentioned the cameo above and Coello does him and his great long beard justice.

Justice League Beyond 2.0 #12 is a good fun drag 'em out fight.  Braniac is sticking it to the league around the World and by the end the reader really sees what's at stake.  Gage and Coello are a great team and this is quickly turning into a great comic worth every cent.
