    Joe Kelly is a talented writer, and his work on this book has shown flashes of brilliance that have me quite glad to see his name in the credit box each month. He's also a very funny writer, as there's some laugh aloud moments in this issue such as Plastic Man's response to Batman's question about his ripple, or Plastic Man's use of a "Karate Kid 2" quote during combat (yes Plastic Man gets most of the funny lines, though Batman does make for a great straight man). However, when all is said & done Joe Kelly's JLA isn't coming together quite as well as I had hoped, and most of this is due to his rather flat villains, who seem to prefer dishing out purple prose instead of the usual villainous ranting. The stories could also stand threats that are more clearly defined, as there are times when I find myself wondering what exactly the JLA are trying to accomplish, which is never a good thing. Still, the promise of things to come is enough to keep me excited for the moment. Read Full Review
