Context: David Graves was a bystander caught in the middle of the League's fight with Darkseid five years ago. He survived, and wrote a book called "Justice League: Gods Among Men." A year later, things took an unexpected turn for Graves, and so began "The Villain's Journey." Despite the heavy action, this is shaping up to be a personal and intimate story, evidenced by the flashback scenes featuring moments in the leaguers' lives when they were vulnerable. The best part of the issue is the entertaining sequence with Flash and Green Lantern, which without a doubt has every fan screaming "I want to see more!" Conversely, it is unfortunate that Aquaman is absent, but if he's going to be put in the background, then it is better that he's not there at all. Steve Trevor gets a lot of attention as he hits a personal low, and from there, things quickly worsen. Great issue!
