    Perhaps the best thing about this issue was the addition of Brett Booth to the book as artist. His stuff leaps of the page, detailed, stylish, lush. I cannot wait to see his work on this book ... especially given the 'bigger than life' stories that Robinson has been bringing us here. So, while it's not really a JLA issue, this did set up the next big arc nicely and filled in some knowledge gaps about Eclipso. Add to that these newer characters and Booth's spectacular art and I would say this was a success. Read Full Review

    It's Robinson doing what he does best. Brett Booth, who drew last month's Starman/Congorilla one-shot, joins the title as regular penciller here. I like his Eclipso a lot, and a many of his heroes look pretty good too. There are some times, though, where some of the faces feel a little too angular, noses too narrow, and the whole thing is a tad plastic. This is most noticeable on those characters who don't wear masks, of course. Still, his storytelling skills are strong and I think he'll work on this book for a while. Read Full Review

    Hopefully Booth can maintain the timing of the book that Bagley established, and if quality keeps at this level, this era of the JLA could be one that is looked back to with fond memories. Read Full Review

    This is all set up to whatever major plot Robinson has cooked up next, and it's very hard to judge from this piece. There's really not much to go on here. Robinson picks up an interesting team of darkness-powered characters to include. I do give him points for knowing who the very obscure Acrata is. I find mentioning Alex Montez, while excluding the massacre of the Shadow Fighters (another article I'm doing later if you don't know who they are) an odd choice. Nothing here is really bad, but nothing made me really look forward to what comes next either. I suppose we'll see more next month. Read Full Review
