Justice League #10

Writer: Geoff Johns
Artist: Jim Lee

David Graves' journey into villainy takes him into direct collision with the Justice League, and boy, does he pull a number on them. While the story of his transformation smoothly runs parallel to his confrontation with the big seven, the League itself hits a strange narrative bump. True, this is the second arc of their title, but also looks and feels like their second adventure ever. Why after five years of being just the seven of them it's like they don't know each other at all? The shared inking duties were quite detrimental to the book; it is easy to tell where Scott Williams is putting his magic touch and where not; some of the pages do a disservice to Jim Lee's pencils. With that said, there are beautiful panels as well, like the one with Aquaman lifting the ship, Batman debriefing the team, or the guys charging at Graves. Despite the flaws in the issue, the story is a good conduit to explore the heroes' losses and emotional wounds.
