Now that we're getting back to our story after that little intermission last issue, where we saw Luthor recruit the Legion of Doom, I wonder if we'll finally get some answers to what the hell is going on in this book.  There's some big concepts, some new names of new things thrown at us, but at the end of the day I think I can only scratch the surface of what's going on if I was trying to describe this book to someone.  I've got the "whats" like it's nobody's business, it's just the whys and the hows that have been alluding me.  Let's jump into this issue and see if things getting any clearer.  Let's check it out.

For this issue of Justice League we see some really cool things that you would never in your wildest imaginations ever think that you'd see in a superhero comic book and while that's all well and good, where it made me smile and laugh a bit.  All that doesn't mean that I fully understand what's going on in this book yet.  

I mean, we have these concepts of the seven hidden forces of the Universe and while we get two more identified in this issue, which is cool, I don't know what they do yet and I'm not fully in the know about the Still Force or the Ultra Violet Spectrum either.  It's a bit frustrating, especially when the key to taking down the enemies in this issue is all about not fighting these forces to the point where the world completely changes by the end and I'm just left feeling like a big dummy because while the imagery is cool, I have no idea how our heroes got to this conclusion.  

Look, there's some cool concepts as always in this book and maybe they'll all be explained down the line, which would be awesome, but this waiting that we're doing while a ton of stuff is going on is just killing me because I want to know and I feel that the book could be doing a better job at letting me understand its plot.  Besides that though, the art in this issue is beautiful and the fight scenes are off the wall bonkers, in a good way......... It's just the rest of the book being all coy with its secrets that's the problem.

Bits and Pieces:

While we do get more pieces to the puzzle this issue, we're still left wondering what the hell the puzzle is in the first place and what we're supposed to do with these new pieces.  With that though, you get some stunning art and some amazing fights in this issue.  I'm just getting a little tired at not understanding the story that we're dealing with.



  1. I was bored this issue, if it wasn't for Batman throwing hands with Lex id probably give this a negative score. These relics are in Words Jim would say, "NONSENSE!". How can these be new force from outside this universe if there are relics that are in this universe the control those supposed new forces. And I hope the scene at the end with Barry isn't him stealing another feat from Wally. Wally has stolen/removed speed from people before. John's plan seems a little to nieve to think they can get through all of the Ulra Lanterns personal package in a single moment. Art as always is the plus of this book, and with Dexter Soy not on a book I'd say Jorge Jimenez art is the best dc has to offer.
    I agree with Eric's

    But I expect so much more from this book.

    1. No worries, Anthony (and Eric) - thanks so much for checking out the book either way. Giving it our all but understand not everything is for everyone. Always appreciated
