    For a project that the writer has described as a grudging obligation, JLA: Classified #10 is a remarkably fun read. No, it's not as innovative (at least so far) as Ellis's creator-owned work, but the man can tell a story, and having the anchor of familiar characters allows for a quicker pace since Ellis does not have to spend an issue explaining the situation and who the players are.

Since that time I've made it a habit of following him from project to project, and I was delighted to see him starting to get some much needed recognition with his work over on the CrossGen's Ruse. In any event, it's nice to see him pop up once again, and while it does look like he's using the sketchier style that he had was using during his time on Resurrection Man, rather than the more polished work he provided on Ruse, this story benefits from the rougher edge that comes with this style, as how can one not be impressed by the emotional impact of the scene that opens the issue? He also makes a pretty strong case for being given a regular assignment on a Batman title, as there's a lov Read Full Review
