This week I have a pretty diverse group of comics for review! We have Blue Beetle, Justice League, Superboy and Arkham Unhinged. The Night of the Owls is still going strong in the Batman world but we take a break this week to review the other great books out now.
Justice League #9- This issue of the Justice League also continues with the extra story of Billy Batson and Shazaam! Someone is out to take down the Justice League an they're tearing the country apart to do it. We also are reminded why Flash can't be Bad Cop while interrogating a suspect. Members of the Justice League are responding to disturbances across the country and finding that someone is collecting information about them. While they are too busy to notice, their liaison is taken and when his family is threatened, how can he stand against his torturer? In Shazaam, Billy Batson turns out to be more than a kid whose seen it all and decided that the world is a hard place. When push comes to shove, he stands up for what he beleives in and there's nothing he hates more than a bully. Also, someone is unearthing the Tomb of Black Adam.... not good. Justice League #9 earns 4 Flashes for interesting tidbits of backstory, great art and proof that while the world puts their safety in the hands of the Justice League, it's members are still human (mostly) and not infallible.
Next week we'll have: Aquaman, Batman Incorporated, The Flash, The Savage Hawkman, Teen Titans, and hopefully, the copies of Catwoman and Batman that we're waiting on! Hope to see you back then.
