It's the return of a king in Part 4 of "The Obsidian Age!" This is the moment comic fans have been waiting for! Unfortunately, this king's revival in the past spells doom for the present, as the time-lost band of Leaguers falls to the new Atlantean dictator.

    This issue is certainly the best chapter in this current arc when it comes to the issues that are covering the adventure of the JLA in the past, as the focus does shift away from the villains of this story, and spends more energy detailing the JLA's response to what has happened to Atlantis. It also doesn't hurt that this issue ends with one of the more shocking cliffhanger finishes that this series has ever seen, as I'm sure most JLA fans will be impressed by this final page visual. This issue also delivers a clearer picture of the situation involving the city of Atlantis, as we hear what happened to the city after it arrived in the past, and we also learn why it was sent to this point in the past. Now the issue still drags when it's centered around the villains of this arc, as Joe Kelly hasn't made these characters into anything all that engaging. Still, the big finish certainly has itself a strong opening moment to bring me back. Read Full Review
