Justice League #4

Writer: Scott Snyder
Artist: Jorge Jimenez
Colorist: Alejandro Sanchez
Publisher: DC Comics


I personally found the first two issues of Scott Snyder’s Justice League alright, but I didn’t feel they were anything to run home about. However last issue and this issue have been spectacular. One thing that Snyder does really well is that he balances the issues between the characters really well and as opposed to other runs like Johns’ or the recent Hitch run he separates the characters out a lot more as opposed to keeping them all together.

 This issue focused particularly on both Gorilla Grodd and Flash. Snyder reveals that the baby we see from the first issue was the Turtle and Grodd had discovered and wielded the still force. One aspect I’m really enjoying about this run is that Snyder makes the legion of doom feel like a real threat as opposed to it feeling like a group of the justice league’s villains which just decided to get together.

The other main focus of the issue is on John Stewart, Cyborg and Sinestro as they try to combat the ultraviolet spectrum. I have to say that this version of Cyborg is probably the best I have read since he was ever included on the Justice League and feels like he plays a part in the team.

Overall, I really liked this issue and I cannot wait to read the next issue and see how Snyder gets the justice league to defeat the legion of doom. The art by Jimenez was fantastic and really proves why he is considered to be a superstar artist. With the source wall breaking it’s interesting how Snyder is trying to expand not only the justice league mythos but the individual mythos of each character.
