Justice League #18

Writer: Bryan Hitch
Artists: Matt Ryan, Fernando Pasarin

Timeless Pt. 4

The Justice League Members continue to claw their way through the horde of the Timeless minions to get to the giant machines in their timeline. There they will implant the device ‘the watcher’ gave them in order to stop Tempus. Meanwhile Batman dawns the Lex suit in order to save Superman who is slowly losing his powers due to the red solar energy Tempus is releasing. Finally, the Justice League Members are able to reach their destination, but to the surprise of the reader the outcome maybe a lot different than they expect.

The Confessional

After months of ragging on Justice League I feel just a hint of “okay I could get on board with this.’ I still find myself struggling to get the plot straight and am having to continuously go back to fact-check. Comics aren’t suppose to be this complicated! But from what we’ve been getting so far I would say this arc is finally an improvement. Yes, the story telling is like one of the pictures that you have to stare at for hours in order to see the real image. “Where’s the Sailboat!” But there are hints here and there about something greater than this book alone, and I finally feel I have enough pieces to start to figure out what is going on. My hope for the future is that this arc will last a couple issues more to fully develop and explain everything that has happened. The art has its up and downs. Some pages look really great and tedious and you can see where Matt Ryan and Pasarin’s strengths lie. I still don’t like when there’s close ups on people’s faces, it just feels awkward and doesn't look good. Anyway, so far I’m on the road heading the right way my hope is the Hitch keeps me and other readers along for the ride.
