    Guess artist Goldman does a good job of telling this action-based story. The difference in storytelling with regular artist Ed Benes is easy to see. Goldman is not a pro storyteller, but after two years of gruelling with an artist that just cannot understand how to tell a story visually, its a fresh change. Read Full Review

    On that tip, the other thing to fix is Maris powers, and thats where the cover comes in at last. Theres a sinister presence manipulating the animal-based power set, and on the cover he looks a lot like Marvels Shadow King. Apparently hes more spidery than that, as well find out next issue. Fall-out from 52 and a large cast beating the odds, thats what we want from JLA. Get a regular penciller and keep a stable crew for a while, will ya? Now that its going good, dont screw it up!

    ...to be continued! This issue packs in a LOT of stuff all at once, but thankfully caps off the Amazo subplot (hopefully for frickin' ever, since the character is utterly beyond boring.) The main problems that I have with this issue aren't with McDuffie's high-octane high-speed script, but with characterization and art. Allan Goldman drew this issue with the DNA of Ed Benes stuck to the end of his pencil, apparently, as this issue maintains the majority of Ed's artistic tics, while downplaying the T&A and adding a very welcome element: backgrounds. Still, the issue is mostly Zatanna's show, with the Big Three getting their moments in the sun, Firestorm pointing out the obvious, and Steel getting a good line in near the end. With a cast this big, though, it's good to see ANY character development going on, as any LSH fan will tell you. It's an okay issue, but is it really necessary to have a 14 member Justice League? Either way, Justice League of America #24 gets by mo Read Full Review

    So while this issue has certain redeeming qualities, there's an awful lot to hate on. Worst of all, the story takes a sudden shift in the last few pages. As it turns out, the real villain of the story has yet to present itself. I thin kit's more than fair to wonder what the heck the point of the last few issues were. If Justice League of America wants to achieve any sort of creative success, it needs to find its purpose in the greater DCU. Read Full Review
