Brian Michael Bendis is of to a solid start on his first Justice League issue. A slow yet enjoyable start with humour & heart that's supported by good art. It's too short though & lacks some momentum because of it. It ends before really getting 'into things' is what I mean to say.

The Justice League Dark backup is good as well, but less enticing To be honest. It's a clear setup for the more

If you want to make an argument, focus on the book itself instead of insulting other people, eh? It's fine to like it, it's fine to dislike it. The least you can do is write down your personal experiences with it and explain why you gave it this particular score.

I enjoy this conclusion but the are also issues that make me not love the number. Capullo is good (he is one of my fav artist) but it is not one of his best work unfortunately. There are not not enough memorable pasges and 2/3 pages of just a color or re-use of previous page :/
And for the story, like Metal i had the feelling the conclusion was a little rush. But there are also a lot of good more

Really good one! I'm already in love with the character of Yara Flor. She is definitely not like Diana and it is a good point! I really want to discover a lot more of her.
