Justice League Odyssey #3 Review

by Hussein Wasiti on November 28, 2018

Writer: Joshua Williamson
Artist: Philippe Briones
Colourist: Jeromy Cox
Letterer: Deron Bennett
 
This continues to be a lot more fun than I expected. In addition to this, the artwork is also a lot more vibrant and awesome than I thought.
 
Losing Stjepan Sejic as series artist is a blow but Philippe Briones does a pretty damn great job with this book. His style is there but the colouring the layering of the story seems a lot more expansive than I've seen from Briones.
 
And Joshua Williamson is doing a pretty good job here. The character interactions are fun and the overall plot is mysterious, but I'm excited to learn more. I'm concerned that the constant art changes are going to throw this book for a loop, as Carmine Di Giandomenico joins the series as main artist next month. On top of that, Dan Abnett is writing an issue coming up. So I'm afraid my enjoyment of this series might be short-lived.
 
The relationship between Cyborg and Starfire is pretty sweet, although I'm not sure if Williamson is implying that they've spent time together as Teen Titans before this. It's confusing, and having these two characters be as close as they are is doubly so.
 
I enjoyed this. I understand that the sheen of the story is going to wear thin very soon so I hope Williamson keeps it exciting. The art was stupendous, however.
