This issue invests most of it's attention on laying the groundwork for this latest mission, though it also managed to clear up some of the more confusing points from the past couple issues. The issue certainly is designed to appeal to Aquaman's fans as the opening battle has the JLA fighting two of Aquaman's more formidable villains, and Garth's role in this issue is fairly substantial. The issue also has the JLA dealing with the idea that Aquaman is still alive, and Joe Kelly does a nice job reminding the reader that Aquaman was a vital part of this group, and that Superman & Wonder Woman were far closer to the man than the rest of the team. There's also a nice parade of guest-stars in this issue, as we see the assembled magic users of the DCU have gathered to help the JLA with this rescue mission. Joe Kelly also manages to develop a nice sense of dread, using Aquaman's rather ominous SOS to the JLA, and Green Lantern's visions of how this mission is going to play out. Read Full Review
