    Leonard Kirk returns to the JSA, and even if it's only for a short visit it's a very welcome surprise as frankly I wasn't all that fond of how his abrupt exit from the title was handled. Still crying foul over past misdeeds is hardly what I want to fill this section of the review with, as this issue is a marvellous example of what Leonard Kirk brings to a title. His characters are full of expression, and the action has a wonderful sense of urgency about it. How can one not be impressed by the double page shot where Atom Smasher comes to ground? And if the panel where Black Adam shatters the Spectre's head doesn't impress then you simply aren't a comic book fan. The same holds true for the reveal shot as the JSA arrive to do battle, and there's also a great moment of suspense where the Thunderbolt finds itself on the receiving end of the Spectre's wrath. Alex Ross on covers is also a welcome sight, as the JSA have never looked better that they do on these covers. Read Full Review
