Art and cover by SCOTT KOLINS

Size: 32 pages
Price: 2.99

I gotta say that Marc Guggenheim and Scott Kolins’ first storyline on JSA wraps up quite nicely.  While this first storyline wavered a bit here and there for me, I found this closing issue to be a lot of fun.  This is your standard “good guys finally find a way to beat the bad guys” issue, but what’s great about it is all of the storyline threads that are left over for the series to build on.  I won’t spoil them here, but trust me when I say that there’s definitely going to be some interesting stuff going on in the JSA books. Guggenheim and Kolins have created some cool villains that can always make a return, and of course, the big bad behind the whole thing is interesting as his motivations are shrouded in secrecy.  As usual, Kolins’ art continues to be solid.  I know many people are not a fan of his new “style,”  but I don’t find it all that distracting.  As I’ve posted before, I think he’s still drawing the same, but the inking and coloring are done differently to provide more of a texture to the pencils as opposed to the frenetic lines and movement of his earlier work.  Despite the stylistic choices, the storytelling is still very solid.  All in all, this issue kept me invested in the series, and I’m excited to see where it goes from here.
