Since the shenanigans last issue, the Justice League is running a planet full of people that hate each other. No, not this one, a wholly alien one, where they have taken over by force and are ruling with even less actual knowledge and attention to detail than the leaders of their collective world of origin.
There's nothing wrong with the delivery of visual assets from Aaron Lopresti, Matt Ryan, David Baron, and Tom Napolitano. The oddly amorphous alien bodies are presented with clarity and work well in their equally unusual (for the reader) environments. Diana has a kind of exhausted grace as she moves between floundering friends and wary new acquaintances. All of this looks good, but it mostly focuses on the shortcomings of the biggest names in the DC Universe. RATING: NO. JUST … NO.
