    Justice League of America #8 was a great set up issue. Meltzer lays the foundation for what should be one seriously wild ride. I haven't gotten this excited for a story arc in a long time. With the writing team of Meltzer and Johns piloting this team-up I am confident that my high expectations will be met. Justice League of America and Justice Society of America are two of DC's best titles on the market. Combining the two for a team-up makes both titles definite must buys. I absolutely recommend giving Justice League of America at try. Read Full Review

    This is a good lead-in to a story that has a great deal of potential. It doesnt waste a lot of time talking about the relationship between the two super-teams but offers readers a few good set-up sequences before diving into the main story. For a crossover this big and with the potential it has, the creative team is near perfect. Read Full Review

    So far, the crossover is off to an unbelievably slow start. This issue is par for the course for this series: a mediocre story with a poor attempt at characterization. However, the premise is strong enough to hold my interest, even though I have no knowledge of the Legion at all. Shane Davis proves to be an equal to Benes, possibly better even in terms of action. Sadly, the slow script means this issue drags along slowly. Hopefully, the Justice Society of America issue will be more promising. Read Full Review
