Justice League of America #28 Review

Too Much Time on My Hands

Written by: Steve Orlando
Art by: Hugo Petrus, Hi-Fi and Clayton Cowles
Cover Price: $2.99
Release Date: April 11, 2018

Scott Snyder's new Justice League isn't here yet?  Oh well, I guess I have to read Steve Orlando's JLA for a little bit more.  Here goes...

The issue starts with Chronos yelling two for flinching and bragging about his out of time army and capturing AHL.  No, he didn't just grab ahold of the American Hockey League or even the Toronto Marlies, he's talking about the God of Superheroes from Milk Wars.  What, you didn't read Milk Wars?  Join the very large club!!!

Chronos continues to insult Ryan any chance he gets, but then Ryan figures out how to beat him...make him small, then large, then put him in a headlock.  Sounds right to me.  The funny thing is, I think Orlando is counting on the fact that Chronos can't shrink and/or expand to explain the attack's effectiveness...after showing us Chronos in the Microverse and just having him talk shit about being there.

Ray goes and grabs AHL while Batman acts like Dracula, Aztek signals a Touchdown, Frost builds an ice wall and Canary and Vixen want to be called on next.  The nonsense continues when Aztek tells everyone they are at Mount Justice and Batman yells they must protect it.

We then get a hard light castle made by The Ray, some philosophy by AHL, plans by Chronos and Batman saying his ready to fight even though he is just standing around doing nothing.  Oh yea, Chronos also mentions Hypertime for good measure.

We do get Chemo who I always love, but in these circumstances, it all just felt silly.  Speaking of silly, after an extended fight, the issue ends with Chronos hitting AHL with a ... I won't spoil it, even though I personally could care less about it.  

Another issue of Justice League of America and another $2.99 and 20 minutes I'll never get back.  Like almost every Steve Orlando issue, this one is filled with terrible dialogue an incoherent story and a ridiculous cliffhanger that seems to dare you to continue.  The art is decent, but there is nothing else in this issue even worth a glance at the comic shop.

Bits and Pieces:

This series is almost over and it still feels like too long a time to wait.
