Jessica Cruz and her new Justice League Odyssey squad are hardly a team...just a bunch of misfits and old rivals thrown together by chance. Only one cause unites them: stopping the newly empowered, godlike Darkseid. But when they're outgunned and stranded on a hostile world, can they even begin to fight the ruthless forces of Sepulkore, or will an unexpected new ally change the course of their struggle forever?

    This series really is the spiritual successor to Abnett's work on Guardians of the Galaxy, and I hope that people give this new misfit team a shot. Read Full Review

    Changing up the cast has done wonders for this title, including Justice League Odyssey #17. An overly dense narrative transforming Cyborg, Starfire, and Azrael into Gods had been replaced by an entertaining Jessica Cruz underdog story. Read Full Review

    The art by Cliff Richards is really good and there are some great action beats in this issue. I wish the story were moving forward so that I could see what Richards could do with the action that gets teased at the end of this issue. Read Full Review

    This feels like an extra-long issue because there's a lot of talking, but it's not people just talking for the sake of talking (except for Gamma Knife and her drones). Jessica has a long talk with Orion where we find out what happened to him and why he has such disdain for Jessica and the Justice League, so that part of the story is filled in. And I actually like Gamma Knife more than I thought I would. The cliffhangers left on both ends of the team are pretty awesome, and the issue isn't bad, but it just doesn't really suck you in or feel captivating. Read Full Review
