Damage vs. the Justice League! Returning to the covert lab that created him, Damage vows to shut the superior-soldier program down. However, the recruit faces a two-front war, one that he might not be able to win: on one side, a newly upgraded Damage host sporting deadly new features; on the other side, the collective might of the Justice League! Might be time to raise that white flag of surrender, soldier!

    As the start to a new story arc, Damage #10 really gets us hyped up for what this new direction has in store for us. There's putting an end to the Damage Program, and then there is getting through the Justice League. After his skirmish with Wonder Woman near the beginning, that attention was bound to come around for him again. Read Full Review

    It was nice to see Ethan and Damage on the same side for a long stretch of time. After nine issues of hiding from each other until necessity forces their hand, it was a pleasure to see them choose to be on the same page and attack a target with a shared goal. What remains to be seen, is if they can stand together against a test like the Justice League or is that just too much to handle. I know Ill be back in thirty days to find out. Read Full Review

    There just never is much going on in the Damage title to tell others about other than explain who the character is punching this month because the reason why has yet to change ten issues into the series. If you've loved what the Damage has provided so far you'll have fun here, but I've grown tired of the same old formula ... oh look shiny cover! Read Full Review

    Damage is a perfect example of a title that on the surface does everything right, and underneath the surface has nothing going for it. Read Full Review

    Damage still doesn't know exactly what it wants to be, which presents a pretty substantial problem as we get into the second and third arc of the series. Read Full Review

    I don’t know or care about these characters. They are walking caricatures, dancing along a depressingly familiar path. There is nothing new under the sun, and this comic wants to make sure we know it.

    I'm convinced that Damage is the book that Robert works on when he wants to let his hair down and relax. 

    The premise for the series is simple. The plots move fast and at worst the stories are always good. 

    The selling point for me is the $2.99 cover price. I firmly believe that comics really need to come off of the $3.99 and should be at max $2.50.  If that means going back to newsprint or finding another means of distribution the prices will eventually need to come down. 

    This was the primary reason I always supported the "New Age of Heroes" line of comics. The books are all solid despite some shortcomings. None of the series are bad and at the very least the line gave us a gaggle of new characters. more

    That was an alright 3 second read. .5 points for Guy Gardner.

    Out of all Damage issues so far, this one easily felt like the shortest one. Or, to be precise, the quickest to read. There's not much dialogue, but plenty of action, which some readers may not find enough, seeing that previous issues put some emphasis on the eponymous protagonist's life, personality and relationship with his alter-ego.
    It's a decent comic overall, however, and while I can't recommend it wholeheartedly, I can't do the opposite either. Worth picking up if you're fan of the series, and if not, I guess you won't lose much.

    well the current Justice League book is indeed kind of "not good for me" but... if this is the new Justice League attacking him... it might indeed get worse than it already is.

    from a base of 6, this gets a rating of: 6.

    This is still so predictable and boring. Do something that hasn't been done over and over again. Add some twists. Be at least a little original. And what kind of Justice League is that? That looks nothing like the current teams, and while I could see most of the team acting as the Justice League, why is Ollie there? He's made it a point not to be involved in the Justice League as recently as No Justice.
