The Circle has turned the JLA against one another, and it looks like it's up to Wonder Woman to close the Circle completely! Plus, more mysterious allies make their presence known with a connection to the JLA's Faith! "The 10th Circle" part 3.

    The sections that drag involve the new characters. Faith is still a blank; possibly a dead one. The origin of Nudge and her simian friend is less interesting than the scenes focusing on the stars. Their involvement with the Doom Patrol makes some amount of sense, but there is one thing that puzzles me. I'm willing to concede that the answers may be forthcoming, but Byrne and Claremont do not give any good reasons as to why the vampires become entangled in the lives of Nudge and her ape. It's a little too convenient at the moment that Nudge's departure from the Doom Patrol led to being found by Crucifer. Still, this chapter of JLA while flawed still offers much in terms of artwork and storycraft. Read Full Review

    I don't find the central villain to be all that engaging, and there's a few too many moments where the book seems interesting in selling readers on the upcoming Doom Patrol series than on delivering a JLA adventure. However, the old school fan in me does enjoy the fact that the book has split the team apart to have a series of individual adventures, as if nothing else it makes for a more diverse reading experience. I'll also give the book credit for offering up a fight between Wonder Woman and a possessed Superman, as this marks the first time I've ever seen these two square off against each other, and it made for a pretty entertaining page turner, and what's more it's capped off with a cliffhanger moment that has left me genuinely curious about how this moment will be resolved. I also have to make mention of the fact that I love the fact that the Atom looks to be off on is own adventure, as it's been quite some time since the character has been used as anything more than a scientific Read Full Review
