    Robinson has a knack for digging up the most obscure characters from the smallest corners of continuity and finding ways to spin them out to be much more interesting than they ever were to begin with. I've never heard of the Bogeyman before this, so his inclusion here is definitely no exception. As a whole, this book's been a departure from the "big guns" approach that predominated JLA for years, but I've been enjoying the greater emphasis on interpersonal relationships on the team. I'm curious to see what's in store for the likely double-sized 50th issue. Read Full Review

    Overall I thought this was a good issue. The internal battle field of insecurities is a very well traveled road seen in many comics but I thought the contrast between the two heroes' versions of personal hell was a new wrinkle. And all this promise of darkness in Jade and the 'he's coming' rants is nice bait for the upcoming year. Pow Rodrix has a nice style, sort of Eddy Barrows-esque. It is stylized but not out of control. His art adds to the story, not distracts from it. I'd like to see more from him. Read Full Review

    Did anyone else see "Single White Female"? Oh well, it should be interesting to see what calamity befalls their proposed photography business- sorry, but with two JLAers working together, and being written by James "watch me break things/kill people" Robinson, you know something bad will happen.

    So when will this comic get its act together? I've about decided that it's a casualty of the ongoing need for events in comics, and since those stories affect the biggest stars at DC, perhaps this comic is destined to continue to be a home for second-banana characters. A shame, really. Read Full Review

    As far as follow-ups to major crossovers go, this issue is a bit of a letdown. Of course, it follows a crossover and is trying to keep the seat warm for a milestone (fiftieth) issue, so it was fighting an uphill battle from the start. Robinson is investigating the characters he chose for his Justice League. I just hope it gets more engaging in the months to come. Read Full Review
