"Justice League is about as much fun as you can have reading a comic book."—MTV Geek

"Reis' manages to impress in a major way with his visuals."—IGN

2.0 von 5 Sternen Somehow both redundant and incomplete 16. April 2014
Von Michael Bestvina - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
DC Has done a lot of redundant, mystifying publishing with the new 52 (I think I have Batman #17 in 5 different books) but this somehow manages to be the worst yet!

For starters, there's only five issues here: 18-20 and 22-23 (21 is the conclusion of the Shazam arc so that's in the Shazam book) so that's not a lot of content. Secondly, the inclusion of 22 and 23 is essentially pointless here. These are part 1 and part 6 of the trinity war crossover (the other 4 were in JLA and JL dark) so you're getting the beginning and ending of a long and complex story. I read all the other parts before reading JL 23 but I have to imagine that issue 23 will make no sense to someone who only reads these two issues. Moreover, what JL fan isn't going to want to read the entire trinity war arc??? Why is DC not asking these questions? This collection is just foolish and you shouldn't give DC your money for it...

So how's the actual content? It's pretty entertaining but nothing special. Issues 18-20 revolve around the JL gettting some new members and lead into Trinity war. Tensions are high as Superman and Wonder Woman's relationship is keeping everyone on their toes. Meanwhile, an old villain shows up to the Justice League watchtower and the new members have to deal with him. A lot of what happens here is set up for Trinity War.

As for 22-23... Imagine if you bought a novel that had the first chapter and the last chapter... Yah, this collection is dumb. Here's the trinity war book:
http://www.amazon.com/Justice-League-Trinity-War-New/dp/1401245196/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1397672894&sr=1-1&keywords=justice+league+trinity+war
This contains all 6 chapters of trinity war and 5 extra tie-in issues. A much better value AND you get the entire arc! This leads directly into Forever Evil and is essentially a must-read for JL fans, purely for its epic scope.

So this leaves you in a tough spot. If you want to read trinity war, you'll probably want to read issues 18-20 first as they introduce some threads that are continued in Trinity War. Sadly, if you pick up the trinity war book and this one, that means you're only getting 3 new issues here for the price of a hardcover book. Of course, you could just buy those 3 issues digitally, but then you're going to have a hole in your JL collection between volumes 3 and 5.

There's just no good solution here and that is inexcusable in my opinion. This senseless publishing really makes DC look like money-hoarders. They need to reward their devoted fans, not punish their wallets! DC easily could have included those 3 issues in a different book (Trinity War or JL vol 3) or put the whole 6-issue trinity war arc in this book (as with JL 3 and Aquaman 3). Or, they could have had 2 different Trinity War collections: a standard with just the 6 issues and a premium with everything (including JL 18-20). Really, there are countless ways DC could have solved this problem but they chose not to. If you want them to stop publishing cross-overs so incompetently, then don't buy this volume!

4.0 von 5 Sternen New Members for the Justice League 8. April 2014
Von Scott Knight - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
In Justice League Vol. 4: The Grid, Geoff Johns has several storylines going on. The initial story concerns the expansion of the Justice League, as Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and the others recruit new members. This meets with mixed success, including someone who is not exactly what they seem.

The main storyline is part of the bigger Trinity War story that includes not only the Justice League, but the Justice League of America and Justice League Dark as well. Pandora's Box is the center of a mystery and opening it will unleash evil on the world.

I have mixed feelings about this collection. Geoff Johns is an excellent writer, but the initial story involving new Justice League members just didn't grab me. The characters just weren't that interesting to me. It may be my lack of familiarity with some of them, but this was just an average story for a writer who normally turns out spectacular work.

The crossover with the Trinity War is very cool, one of the bigger than life scenarios that the Justice League is made for. It was fun to see the characters from the different teams interact, with all of their baggage and previous history together. However, this book only has the Justice League part of the story. Readers looking for the entire story would do better to wait and pick it up as its own collection.

I like the Justice League, and would recommend this book to fans of Geoff Johns and the League. It's just not the best of the recent storylines.

I received a preview copy of this book from DC Comics in exchange for an honest review.

1.0 von 5 Sternen All over the place 18. April 2014
Von Sam Quixote - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Justice League, Volume 4: The Grid has got to be the most schizophrenic New 52 book I’ve read so far!

What stories do we have here? There are “tryouts” for new Justice League members; Despero and J’onn J’onzz fight in the Watchtower, crashing it to Earth; there’s the last issue in the Shazam mini-series; and the volume closes out with the first and LAST parts of Trinity War!!!

Oh… dear. Where to start…

Actually, the tryout issue wasn’t bad. I’m guessing the JL are looking for more members after Green Lantern skedaddled in Vol 2 and Aquaman went crazy in Vol 3. The characters interact well, nobody does or says anything monumentally stupid, and the issue flows nicely. Rosie the robot (I forget her real name) goes a bit koo-koo bananas (which is foreshadowing for a more serious act later on down the line) and that’s about it.

Then things spiral out of control. Why does Despero show up? Why does J’onn J’onzz show up? When did the JL decide Firestorm and the Atom were the new JL members? Why didn’t Cyborg notice the intruders until it was too late? No clue.

Superman and Wonder Woman’s boring, drawn-out romance becomes the reason why they’re away from the Watchtower as they interfere in Kahndaq (DC’s catch-all Middle Eastern country that’s either Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan or any and all of the above) and they’re referred to as “Americans” – are they really? Maybe Superman as he was raised in Kansas, but Wonder Woman? She’s an Amazon princess! Or Greek God or whatever her new incarnation is in the New 52. Anyway, it was one helluva contrived and stupid reason to make the Watchtower vulnerable.

Then there’s the Shazam issue which wraps up the Shazam storyline. For those who’re coming to this book cold – and wow, this must be a confusing experience for you if you are! – Shazam was a backup that ran in the JL issues that were collected in its own volume. It’s finale became a full Justice League issue but if you weren’t following it, its inclusion here just comes out of nowhere. What’s happening? Who.. what?! Anyway, if you’re read the Shazam book, you’ll have already read this issue.

Of course this is all filler for Trinity War of which we get the introductory issue and its insane ending – leaving out all the stuff in the middle! A character called Pandora holding a Damien Hirst-esque golden skull – Who? What? When? Why?! Like so much of this volume, she’s just thrown in – who’s mumbling about some kind of war with the trinity or something blah blah. Madame Xanadu’s got a tarot deck featuring the weirdest looking cards ever – instead of the usual figures of the tarot, it literally features Superman, Wonder Woman, and so on, exactly as they are! Are these tarot cards or superhero trading cards?

Doctor Light, a paper-thin character who was barely introduced in Justice League of America specifically for this issue, gets killed by Superman and the three Justice Leagues – Justice League, Justice League of America, and Justice League Dark – get into a dumb fight because they’re all morons. So far, so stupid. This book assumes you’ve been reading the other titles so you know what their deals are: why the JLA were formed, what they’re doing in Kahndaq, and so on. The problem with too many crossovers is, unless you’re reading EVERYTHING, then you’re missing pieces that makes the main story confusing – which is this book all over.

So the first issue of Trinity War then jumps to the last issue, so you’d be forgiven for wondering why 1) the various Justice Leagues have formed teams of their own, 2) what that golden skull has to do with anything, and 3) why the hell Superman is suddenly green, dying and crazy! If you’re a monthly comics reader you’ll already know how Trinity War played out as Forever Evil – aka Trinity War Part 2 – has been dominating the DC publishing schedules since it launched late last year. I won’t go into why Trinity War was so remarkably terrible because this review is already too long (in a year which had Age of Ultron and Infinity, Trinity War turned out to be the worst comics Event of 2013), but it did provide me with a good laugh when 90s Aquaman appeared – and died instantly!

Suffice it to say the “story” of this book is a complete shambles – it’s rushed, it’s barely coherent, and it makes zero sense. Readers are unlikely to understand quite what the filler issues have to do with the Trinity War or why the book is called “The Grid” when it plays so little a role in the book. The Grid is just an electronic telephone directory created by Cyborg, and Grid is also the name of the evil Cyborg – neither of which are the focal point of this random assortment of comics, though it’s arbitrary title is fitting for this grab-bag of stuff.

Ivan Reis’ art isn’t bad but Joe Prado’s stuff is very cartoonish and lacklustre. The dialogue is brainless for the most part. Evil Alfred literally says out loud to no-one but the reader: “Thanks to me, everyone will actually believe Superman’s killed Doctor Light!” while Superman’s dialogue isn’t much better, announcing his motivations thusly: “I won’t stop until Batman’s dead!”. Oh and the Atom literally goes into an MMORPG in a scene that is utterly baffling. Apparently, being able to shrink to the size of an atom means you can actually be in a computer game?!

If Justice League is DC’s New 52 flagship title, the fourth JL book is indicative of the line as a whole: it’s a poorly thought out mess.

3.0 von 5 Sternen JL on the grid-iron 17. Juni 2014
Von Karen Amrhein - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I've enjoyed the first three New 52 JL volumes -- the first one especially -- but this one left me a bit unsatisfied. There's lots of fighting and not a lot of story, and some JL members (The Flash and Green Lantern especially) have little or nothing to do or say. I felt as if Geoff Johns -- whose stories I frequently enjoy -- didn't know what to do with all the JL members in this story-arc. Furthermore, the book ends on a big cliffhanger, necessitating the purchase of volume 5 to finish the story. I wish I'd stopped with volume 3, "Throne of Atlantis".

3.0 von 5 Sternen Less a true story, more a transition into Forever Evil 23. April 2014
Von J. A Magill - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Love him or hate him, Geoff Johns know how to write an epic comic. Indeed, long a fan of his work, I know that this very gift can often be his Achilles heel. His myth building run of Green Lantern is a case in point: how high can you raise the stakes, until you have to start lowering them again? Yet at least in GL, each story arc still possessed all the aspects of a good story. The same has been true of his run of Justice League, the Atlantis War being a particularly fine example. This leads me to my main gripe with JLA vol. 4: The Grid. To be blunt, not much happens. (SPOILER ALERT)

The Grid races from crisis to crisis, each quick resolved with not much impact. Even Despero’s appearance – apparent from the cover and beautifully drawn in this book by Ivan Reis – passes with a hiccup. We’ve been waiting for the JL/JLA conflict for a while, but when it comes it is little more than a head fake. Instead the whole book, all 170+ pages is a giant prologue to the launch of Forever Evil. What launches Forever Evil? It would be too much of a spoiler to mention who comes out of Pandora’s Box (which may in fact be western culture’s oldest McGuffin!). Yes, most readers probably know already, but I’m too sympathetic to those still in the dark to blow the surprise.

In the end, the value of this whole book depends on how you feel about Forever Evil. I’d say that this DC wide mega-event probably deserves a prologue, but I can’t in good conscience give much praise to a book that is just a giant set up. Yes, the reveals are fun, but like some Agatha Christie novel, they all come in the final pages.
