COMIC BOOK REVIEW: Justice League # 13

Comic Book Review for Justice League # 13 by Geoff Johns and Tony S. Daniel powered by Comicx Hub.

The next arc for the Leagues places Wonder Woman in the spotlight. In this new issue we find out what happens after “The Kiss” which Superman and Wonder Woman shared together. Still some things from issue 12 are not discussed nor are addressed properly which kinda sucks.

Green Lantern Hal Jordan just quit last issue and we don’t have the League talking about it. It’s like they just dismissed the whole thing. Really sad. The best analogy I can come up with this is like having one of the founding fathers of the Katipunan just leaving and the rest of the Katipuneros are just “meh”.

Anyway the action is pretty nice in this issue. We have Cheetah (Barbara Minerva) making her first appearance for the readers. She’s a close friend of Diana when she came to the isle of Man aside from Trevor. Steve Trevor is also in this issue being interrogated by Aquaman and Batman; who are still fighting over the leadership mantle. This bit I like because we’ve rarely seen Arthur and Bruce clash pre-New 52, whether these two comes to blows, we only have to wait (possibly for Aquaman # 13 or # 14).

Cheetah’s origin gets “mentioned” together with a brief discussion about her motivations as a villain. We’ll probably have to wait for the next issue to learn more but knowing how Johns writes these days I wouldn’t bank on that.

Daniel’s art is pretty nice. I wouldn’t mind paying P200 to see the artwork done by Mr. Daniel. In a way its like Jim Lee never left the book if you ask me.

I positively loved the variant cover for this one featuring the clash between Minerva and Diana with the League about to spring into action.

On a final note, I’m good with how Johns developed a new friendship between Cyborg and The Flash who never did bond. We see what’s been running on Vic Stone’s mind ever since he became Cyborg back in issue 1. It’s an interesting change of pace in a book that’s filled with dysfunction and action.

VERDICT: 8.5/10
