There’s a lot going on this issue, wrapping up the current storyline, but it’s kind of overshadowed by what’s going on above. No spoilers needed. It’s an idea that fans have thought about for decades, and some writers have explored a little, but not very far. Be interesting to see if Geoff Johns is willing to develop it further.
Meanwhile, the League has been confronted by the apparent ghosts of their deceased loved ones on the isle of souls, wherever that is, and it makes for some good melodrama before things change again. Diana’s guilt about her former relationship with Steve Trevor only adds fuel to her reactions, but everyone has guilt issues to deal with. In the end it’s all dealt with in a fairly satisfying way, and instead of a Shazam backup we have some coming attractions.
The art by Jim Lee and a host of inkers is as appealing to me as ever, but it seems Lee will be replaced by David Finch in the future, which should be good too. Sorry to see Jim go, but twelve solid issues is a fine accomplishment these days.
