JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #23
What did the
I just started reading JLA with the beginning of Final Crisis, so I pretty much missed out on a lot of what’s happened before. Not that it really matters, but it allows me to have some perspective on the current storyline because I don’t really have “baggage” to carry around with me. Last month’s issue was a fun read for me, even if Benes’ art wasn’t my cup of tea. With this issue, I found myself having an absolute blast reading it, and since I’ve been watching the old Justice League cartoons of late, I was appreciating this month’s issue even more. I felt that the fight had a very natural and organic flow to it, and I also found it interesting that, just like in the cartoon, when someone was hurt another member would break away from the fight to go help them. This issue displayed the teamwork that surrounds this team, and Flash’s battle with Amazo was an excellent example of this. It was just damn, damn fun, and I can’t wait to see where it takes us next.
I actually enjoyed Benes’ work in this issue much more than the last one. I felt his panels were well layed out and the action was clear and fun. I don’t know why I didnt’ like it as much last issue, but the only thing I can think of is that this issue just had a lot of action in it, which hasn’t been present in the previous issues I’ve read.
Overall, I had hella fun with this issue, and if you’ve ever watched any of those old cartoons, you may just enjoy the hell out of this issue too as it has a great feel and displays just what a JLA comic can be.
