    Justice League of America #5 was another solid read. Meltzer is really catching his breath for next issue. Next issue should be an absolute blast to read. Meltzer and Benes continue to impress and are making this new JLA a must read. DC's premier team is back where they belong at the top of the hill. Read Full Review

    I also have to say that I am a pretty big fan of Ed Benes art. For a superhero book, it just fits perfectly. He hits every character just right and manages to do the one thing that many artists often struggle to do. If there is one thing that I really appreciate about some artists, it is the ability to keep every character distinct from another. It can be subtle differences or major differences, but so long as they are noticeable differences then an artist has truly accomplished his purpose on a superhero book, especially when the book involves a super-team such as the Justice League.

    Using more traditional grids helps Benes anchors his storytelling better, although it still is difficult to follow the story even when it's nothing but talking heads. The inking continues to be inappropriate for this series as it only highlights the artist's weaknesses, and not his strengths. Read Full Review
