A very good story of betrayal and highly recommended if you're reading the main event. This tie-in once again takes place before the main event, this time narrating the events of the squad's first mission as they were deployed to infiltrate The Not Nice Korea to sabotage a metahuman development program that put the world in risk of war and how ultimately Waller is forced to make sure this team's f more

With no fight taking place in this issue we finally get to see a story start to develop. With the JL captive in Belle Reve, Batman gets to escape just as Waller wanted and the two get to the cheese of why she wanted the JL (yeah, like it was part of your plan that the JL showed up in the last mission, saved Deadshot and got captured by a stroke of luck). Meanwhile the bad guys seem to have stop more

A very well done origin story as well as a great tie-in story that provides much needed context to the main story, and although I don't thinks it is essential, I highly recommend it. As the comic tells us, this tale takes place before the first issue of JLvsSS and narrates via a Waller interrogation of a captive Maxwell Lord, his origin and motivation as well as establish pretty much very clear more

Once again the developing friendship between our heroes takes the spotlight and Diana really shines in this issue as Manapul does an excellent job showing how kind she is and how much she misses her home Although there still seems to be a lack of progression with the plot, we finally get some clues about what is going on with these dreams, and our heroes finally realize who is behind this more

This time there not much to say, the whole issue is a big fight which is precisely what the series needed: known villains with a clear objective, and hey, it only took Hitch 11 issues to give us that. But of course this being Hitch there will be negative things, in this case was the lack of Amazo which was the main attraction but only got a few panels since the story focused more on everybody more

After last issue, I (and most people) thought that this fight was going to be very one sided with maybe 1 or 2 exceptions and I am very disappointed that we were proven right. The single matches between the JL and the SS were such a disgrace that MOST OF THEM DIDNT LAST MORE THAN 1 PAGE!. Meanwhile, in Lord's secret evil lair, the other bad boys just keep talking and talking The ending was not more

Manapul as an artist is incredible, as a writer not so much, and despite a very strong first issue the story starts to get weak. Just like the previous one, this issue feels more like a one-shot rather that the 3rd part of a bigger story. Want to see Batman's parents murder again? Want to see young Bruce feel guilty and sad? buy this issue; otherwise skip it as there is no story progression nor more

Another nonsense story with another unexplained villain and with very questionable characterization. Half of our heroes fears are logical, half are dumb and added nothing to the story. In the end felt like an inconsequential story (except for Jess leaving the JL for an unexplained reason in one of the worst dialogues I've ever read)

There are 3 big problems in this issue as I see it: - right from the beginning it was a big mistake to start the story in what seems the middle of story arc, right after beating the bad guys (again getting zero info about them) and before the heroes realize its not over. The problem here is that having no context about what happened before decreases the impact and credibility to what we see is more

The story is simple: Lois wants that if Clark is becoming a superhero again, he should get to know again Bruce and Diana so she surprises Clark inviting them for a dinner at the farm. There is something special in seeing a group of characters that used to know each other try to rediscover their friendship and Manapul achieved it in an outstanding way.
