COMIC BOOK REVIEW: Justice League # 10

Reviewing Justice League # 10 by Geoff Johns, Jim Lee and Gary Frank


• The identity of the Justice League’s newest and deadliest foe is revealed!

• Part four of the debut of SHAZAM!

The second chapter for David Grave’s transformation into the villain dumbly known as Agents continues. This is also an issue that’ll leave you with more questions rather than answers especially if you’ve been reading the last few issues of Justice League.

Just like always the issue still showcases how great an artist Jim Lee. I actually spent a good few minutes just looking at the interior art provided with Lee together with frequent collaborator Scott Williams.The colors pop out and the lettering definitely works. I’ve read a lot of Johns written books for the past few years that I’ve grown quite adapted to the writer’s writing style and storytelling approach. I might have some small gripes about the dialogues but I choose to focus more on the good thins.

Johns writing makes for such an entertaining expo in this issue. The way Batman “bosses” every member of the League; to the reason why Flash never double dates with Hal Jordan aka Green Lantern.

For me the strongest point of this book happens to be the villain Graves. I must admit I’m mildly intrigued as to why the guy who gave the Justice League their name (in issue # 6) would want to destroy them in a span of five years. But while the villain’s general motives are still currently in the dark, let me just reiterate that Graves looks really despicable. The guy should definitely get a redesign if he plans to resurface after this story arc.

Great story telling, great art, definitely a book that will make you go “Bitin” towards the end. Oh as for the Shazam backup, it gets more interesting with the re-emergence of a certain “black” character.

Verdict: 5/5
