I'm a big fan of Joe Kelly's work, but there are times when his attention does seem to be drawn to ideas that aren't nearly as engaging as the time he spends on them would suggest. I mean until J'Onn puts in his appearance this issue proves to be a fairly uneventful introduction to a group of ancient super-beings who are working to make Atlantis their home, and while the mystery of what happened to the people of Atlantis is interesting, the simple fact of the matter is that Joe Kelly is far more interesting in playing with the idea of an ancient version of the J.L.A. than he is on advancing the disappearance of an entire population. Now once the J.L.A. arrive on the scene the book does pick up, as we learn what they've been up to since their arrival, and in a rather unique twist we see the team is quite up to charging into battle. Plus, the final page discovery is certainly an attention grabber. Read Full Review
