Dear Justice League” is a new graphic novel, part of an increased direct to bookshelf focus DC has with a younger audience in mind. Smart business and this is just the sort of book they should be putting out. The premise is that members of the world famous (but currently not as in vogue) superhero team respond to letters from fans.
What happens when Grant Morrison writes himself into one helluva cliffhanger that seems almost impossible to get out of? What happens when you take the dynamic art of Liam Sharp and simplify it? What happens to the reader of a review when they’re bombarded with questions? Lets find out in this review of the latest chapter of The Green Lantern.
THE FUTURE IS NOW! I’m pretty sure that’s the title of a DC story line from years past, but that doesn’t have anything to do with this issue of Justice League. Scott Synder continues to push the upper echelon for the Justice League, and the insanity only goes higher with this issue. Warning the following review will contain spoilers.

It’s a crazy time to be reading the Justice League and that’s a good thing. The pieces of Snyder’s grand story have been set into place and the pieces are about to move. If you’ve been wanting a good jumping on point for Justice League then this issue is the best one you’re going to find for quite sometime. Warning the following review will contain spoilers.

Hal Jordan has gone rogue. So it’s just another Tuesday for the Green Lantern Corps. Given how last issue ended, I can feel the series begin to hit its strive. Even though I’ve enjoyed this latest relaunch from the beginning, I firmly believe that the ending of the previous issue was the start of both Grant, Liam, and Oliff began to hit their stride on this series.

We’ve finally arrived, the final act of Heroes In Crisis. Controversy has surrounded this series since issue one, and despite my praise for the storytelling craft that both Tom King and Clay Mann (along with Mitch Gerad’s). I find myself barely hanging on to the crux of the story, or perhaps I’m missing the point entirely. There are aspects to Heroes In Crisis that I enjoy, and I can only hope that this series will lead to something huge as we reach the conclusion. Warning the following review will contain spoilers.

Do you love Lex Luthor? I know I don’t love Lex Luthor, but so far with this latest incarnation of Justice League Mr. Luthor is a crucial to this story as any member of the Justice League themselves. I honestly can’t recall a JL title that gives this much of a spotlight to the antagonist. I doubt that Synder or Tynion will try to redeem Lex, but I can’t help but be fascinated at the direction he’s being taken in. The best part is that it still feels authentic to Lex Luthor as a character. Warning the following review will contain spoilers. So read your comic before reading this review.
The Source Wall is broken. It’s scary to think about isn’t it? It’s not often when reading superhero comics that I find myself unnerved, but with this new era of Justice League I find myself feeling every more terrified as Synder inches further along in this grand epic of his. Yes Synder is writing big time superhero comics, but his horror roots are very present. Proving once again that cosmic horror is the creepiest kinda horror. As always this review will contain spoilers, so remember to read your comic before reading this review. You have been warned.
I’ve read superhero comics regularly since May 2006 and one of the first writers I latched onto was Grant Morrison. Talk about a deep dive into the weird right? One of the first rules I’ve learned is that a Grant Morrison comic can always become more absurd. If you thought the first three issues were insane, my friends we’ve only just started. Warning the following review will contain spoilers. You have been warned.
Back again. Brian Michael Bendis’ second attempt to capture the voices of one of comics favorite youthful heroes. How does he fare this time? Much like the first. Very much like the first. Potential spoilers ahead.
