    This is one of those darkest before the dawn issues, where things go from bad to worse. Its almost humorous how Busiek manages to layer the cliffhangers in this issue, as each plot thread seems to end on a note of mystery before it quick-cuts to somewhere else. Batman finds a world darker than his own, the CSA dont know what to make of the JLE, while in space Power Girl takes a hit for Jonn and the Qwardians still struggle among themselves for dominance. If Garney can keep up the epic scale that Busiek calls for, this battle could get even more interesting. The CSA show up in space at the end, and though I think I know where this is going, I cant wait to see it happen. Read Full Review

    If you've read any of my previous reviews it's pretty clear that I'm not a big booster of Ron Garney, but there are sections in this issue that I found to be extremely well done, such as the wonderful credit page shot of the massive alien vessel which perfectly captures the sheer scale of the threat that our heroes are facing. The art also does an amazing job on the panel where Captain Marvel falls victim to a devastating attack. How can one not let out an involuntary gasp when you first hit that panel? Now the action later in the issue isn't as impressive, as the battle with the Crime Syndicate lacks any real powerful shots, and even the big impact moment where the Red Tornado's inner elemental is unleashed lacked the proper sense of amazement. However, this issue was one of Ron Garney's strongest efforts, and if he keeps up work of this quality he may very well win me over as a fan. Read Full Review

    Not a perfect chapter in JLA, and the plot doesn't exactly flow, but the parts of the whole entertain. Read Full Review
