Justice League: Last Ride #7 Review


Crash Landing

Artist: Miguel Mendonca
Cover Price: $3.99
Release Date: November 10, 2021

I haven't been the biggest fan of Justice League Last Ride, but the last couple of issues was getting me there.  Finally, seeing that all of this was a plan by Darkseid to lure the Justice league to Apokolips felt big, and I couldn't wait to see what Chip Zdarsky had in store after the last issue's colossal cliffhanger. So now that it's here was the Last Ride worth taking?  Let's find out...

Cover Price: $4.99
Release Date: November 9, 2021

Now that Superman has said goodbye to those he loved in Action Comics, Superman: Son of Kal-El and Superman and the Authority, it's finally time to head off to Warworld to see what Phillip Kennedy Johnson has planned in renewing Mongul's backstory and who he is as a whole in the world of Superman villains. On top of that, we'll also see what Guardian is up to in the Tales of Metropolis backup but personally, I don't know who needs that beyond die-hard Guardian fans who need to purge what's going on with the character in Checkmate. Shade aside, let's check out Superman and his Authority pals.

Cover Price: $3.99
Release Date: November 9, 2021

Let's head on back to Gotham and check in on how Jace Fox's time as Batman is treating him. You know, since he kind of pulled a double-edge sword last issue where he revealed that he's not the Batman that doesn't kill.... but then also revealed that he's not the Batman that everyone needs to be afraid of for a different reason. Things are crazy in Gotham with The Seer creating militia groups calling themselves the Moral Authority and maybe with all the other Bat-Family members being busy with the Magistrate, Scarecrow, and all-around Fear State, it's on Jace's shoulders to take the Seer down all by himself..... even though it looks like The Seer is going to be The Batgirls' villain as well. Let's check it out.

Let's jump into this issue and see what else we can learn from this title. Let's check it out.

I was into this book big time when we were getting the Red Hood and Grifter stories at the beginning, but it's hit or miss for me since those both ended.  This month we continue one story I am interested in and get a one-shot that surprised me.  Does that equal out to a banger of an issue?  Let's find out...
