    And, the artwork is just stunning. I can understand why DC would be willing to wait for Mauro Cascioli to complete the artwork here. The finished work is wonderful. So I guess this is another up and down issue in an up-and-down miniseries. But I think this one was more up than down. Read Full Review

    The art is a nice blend of painted and drawn styles, giving the book a very lush, overflowing look to it while still keeping the characters looking very dynamic. Too bad that so many characters spend their time just standing around and talking. The scenes of Batwoman and Odd Man (?!) in battle look quite good and give us only a taste of what this book could be. Read Full Review

    And James Robinson ties it all together with a six-page text piece on Damon Runyon, Mac Raboy, and Mort Meskin. Because why not? Read Full Review

    I've got to admit that this issue left me with one overriding feeling, that of pure, unadulterated rage! Suffice to say, if I were living in the DCU right now I'd most definitely be a Red Lantern after finishing this issue. To say that I'm pissed off about what happened to Roy, one of my favorite DC characters, is the understatement of the decade! Read Full Review

    Art wise, I don't think there's another artist in comics I'd rather see right now than Casciolo, but he couldn't save this issue, and probably not this series. Save your money. Wait until Robinson starts on the main JLA title in 2010. It isn't really important why some people are on the JLA and others aren't, is it? Even if you read Cry for Justice, I'm not sure it becomes any clearer. Read Full Review
