Lightning strikes again as a Flash returns! But where's this Flash from--and what is she doing on our Earth? Extra-dimensional shenanigans ensue and it could mean major problems for the JLA!

    Compounding my suspicion that this entire issue was more or less an exercise in eating pages while McDuffie prepares his next story arc is the presence of a cheesy seven-page Alan Burnett-penned back-up story that belongs in one of DC's hokey Infinite Holiday Specials, not their most celebrated team book. I'm pretty sure I've read this type of Christmas story a hundred times before, with a costumed hero (in this case, Red Arrow) volunteering at a soup kitchen only to find that one of his former enemies is out of prison, on the streets and down on his luck. I don't want to sound like a Scrooge or anything, but I need to read more of these Christmas themed short stories like I need a pile of Reindeer dung in my stocking. Read Full Review

    Justice League of America #16 was a dull read. McDuffie has failed to impress me with his run on this title. For my tastes, Justice League of America has rapidly declined in terms of the quality of writing since McDuffie took over for Meltzer. However, this title isn't unreadable. So, if you are a big McDuffie fan or a die-hard JLA fan then you will probably enjoy this title. However, I cannot recommend this title to any other fans other than those two aforementioned groups. There are simply too many other well written titles on the market that are far more worth your hard earned money than Justice League of America. Read Full Review

    Its been three strikes now against the re-launched JLA. I fear unless a relief writer is brought in there will be no extra innings for this book as far as Im concerned. Read Full Review

    Unless you are a fan of the Tangent Universe or you want a holiday story, there is really no point in getting this issue. I feel ripped off that Dwayne McDuffie provides a hero and villain heavy storyline and then we get A Brief Tangent that is nothing more than a crappy advertisement. Seriously, at least I got a holiday story. Read Full Review
