And Then I Read: JUSTICE LEAGUE 40

Unlike many of the issue 40’s in DC’s New 52, this one does not end a story, it begins another epic struggle involving Jack Kirby’s Fourth World characters like Darkseid, and cleverly tying that into the original CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS. After recapping the central storyline of Kirby’s NEW GODS, as narrated by Metron of that group, and several pages of crazy character-stuffed recap of CRISIS, we see Metron interacting with the Anti-Monitor, and that’s where things get really interesting.

Having just read a New Gods storyline in the Green Lantern books, I can’t say I’m looking forward to more of them, but writer Geoff Johns always finds ways to draw me in, and the excellent art on this book helps, as always.
