Justice League International #9

Writer: Dan Jurgens
Artist: Aaron Lopresti

Despite being in the middle of an ongoing arc, this issue is a great jumping point as british hero Lady Godiva introduces herself and several of her JLI peers to new readers while fighting the menace of OMAC. The series is cemented on tons of action combined with funny, light moments; a mix that doesn't always work on most titles, but in this one it does just fine. Batwing also joins the fold, which is a huge step to give the character much deserved exposition, and provides him with the opportunity to win new fans. Aaron Lopresti, Matt Ryan, and Hi-Fi deliver great artwork with dynamic pages, clean lines, and crisp colors, while Dan Jurgens moves the plot quickly, with a somewhat balanced attention to all his characters, and overall keeping the story fast paced and entertaining. The issue closes with things heating up in Paris as the team heads right "Into the Firestorm".  Fun issue!
