Pretty cool back story on Volthoom, it really paints the guardians as the bad guys since they forced him to stay around so they could experiment on him by destroying his travel lantern. You almost feel bad for Volthoom. The artwork is decent too, I'll be ready to get back with our heroes next issue.

Really liked this issue, seems like we're going to be getting a interesting threat towards our heroes, the girl who claims to have been around for all the league's battles and even remembers crisis and flashpoint also intrigues me.The art in this book was pretty good but there were a few panels that didn't look the best.

SPOILERS! Justice League vs the Death Star! The book is essentially just a big pep talk between the League (Jessica thinking she doesn't belong, Pre new 52 Superman's credibility and this league even finds out Batman has a contengency for each of them in case something wrong happens) Batman making a Star Wars reference was pretty cool not gonna lie.

Wasn't so sure about this new relationship but I liked the issue with the way Dick touched base with friends and ex-lovers and the organic development of the relationship. Sorry that Damian didn't make it in it though and that last panel... spoiler to say more, but was not keen at all on the suggestion.

This was a really great issue, I loved all of Dicks interactions with his friends and even past lovers (that talk he had with Barbara is so sad if you're a huge fan of their relationship). Shawn's talk with her dad right before he leaves was also done very well. We are left again with another crazy cliffhanger that'll have you wondering what's gonna happen next!

This has to be my favorite issue of all the Batman rebirth issues so far.
