In the penultimate chapter of ''Thy Kingdom Come,'' the Justice Society of America goes to war with one another! Torn between Gog's desire to help the world and the moral cost it comes with, it's the old guard vs. the new as the line that was drawn is crossed.

    With only its finale left, "One World, Under God" and the greater JSA/KC storyline are both in a very interesting place, and seem poised to deliver a very satisfying and entertaining total package. For those of us who at times grew weary of this project, that's a pleasant feeling to have after all this time. Read Full Review

    This is a one of the better chapters in the "One World, Under Gog" arc. It resolves many plot lines while developing interesting new ones, especially regarding some of the newer members to the JSA. I look forward to the next issue and I'm very curious to know what impact, if any, this arc will have on the greater DCU. Read Full Review

    There may be some disappointment for those who were expecting a "KINGDOM COME"-level story. For all the build-up that preceded this issue, it looks like just another evil alien storyline. They could have wrapped it up sooner but the results so far have been satisfactory. Read Full Review

    Justice Society of America #21 was another solid read. Hopefully, Johns will be able to pull off an climactic conclusion to this story that is satisfying to the reader. Johns certainly has built this story up to great heights by making the reader wait so long for a pay-off. It should be interesting to see if Johns can deliver. If you have missed this story then I would certainly suggest picking this story arc up in trade format. Read Full Review

    While the storyline has its problems, it looks like it will be ending with a bang based on this issue. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Stephen Schleicher Dec 6, 2008

    So is this an enjoyable story? In the sense that we are reaching the conclusion of a very long tale that could have had a few chapters ripped from it, yes. For the all out battle featuring all members of the JSA, which we haven't seen in some time, another point on the yes side. For further bringing the events of Earth-22 into this world? I'm going to have to say no on this one. I will give Johns credit, though - while the Kingdom Come story was well done, and probably needed to be left alone as is, Johns is able to bring a new twist to the event to make it interesting once again. Another point for art, and a point for a fast paced story, and that bring JSA #21 3 out of 5 Stars. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Erik Norris Dec 5, 2008

    Fortunately, next months issue #22 is the end of this Kingdome Come sequel and hopefully we can start seeing Justice Society of America return to its former glory coming out of this mess. We know a storyline involving Black Adam and Isis is right around the corner -- some of Geoff Johns pet characters at DC -- so Im sure JSA will be readable in the near future. Until then, do whatever you can to avoid the current issue, even if it means you biting the bullet and accepting a numbering gap in your long box. Read Full Review
