This issue proves the cast of Justice League Dark need their own books. Hellblazer alone isn't cutting it. JLD was one of the best New 52 offerings before they killed it prematurely. Trinity is an odd title. It jumps from story to story and at times can be incoherent. This issue is continued from the annual from about a month and a half ago but doesn't really explain how Ra's and Circe got their h more

Decent enough for a Hitch written JL issue but again, it feels like it's an elseworld title again and it's ties to the Rebirth continuity still seems unconvincing. I just think it's funny that's Cyborg's son is the result of a half robot and a piece of tech. It's like an iPhone and an AI had a baby... Next up: Hunter's mommy issues...

It was weird reading this issue and Metal back to back. Snyder and King have completely different takes on Batman and I have to say I dig Snyder's more. While this was no doubt a unique issue and the storytelling was presented in a different way, what was absolutely terrible in this issue was Joker's portrayal. He's not at all scary anymore. The fact that you would let Joker have dinner with you a more

They could potentially introduce a villain on par with Darkseid or Anti-Monitor in terms of power. This is a Multiverse shakeup event. Art isn't the best by Capullo's standards but the man is on a time crunch so I'll cut him some slack. I'm totally onboard although this issue doesn't really give much away.

This story arc is getting pretty good. This issue was a lot of setup. Garth potentially joins the fight. The widowhood potentially masterminding the whole thing to put Mera into power. Vulko gets help from a disgraced sister from the widowhood. Arthur has revealed himself to be the king. Things should get all kinds of crazy in the coming issues.

If you told me that RHATO would be one of Rebirth's strongest offerings with Scott Lobdell still writing, I woulda laughed my ass off but a year later, it's one of the only Rebirth books that hasn't fallen off in terms of storytelling.

Whenever I start thinking Rebirth has gone a little stale, this title shakes off those thoughts. Obviously this sets up a Metal tie-in but we already know Hal is one of the main players in the event and not Simon or Jessica, which is fine because if Snyder wants to tie up some loose ends leftover from New52, it would make sense to use the JL team from that time period in DC continuity.

This could, keyword: could, shape up to be worthwhile. I had hopes for Justice League of America Rebirth when it first launched but it's been mostly hodge podge since then.
