Publisher’s Summary: The teams arrive at Brainiac’s home world to find it already in chaos. Only by splitting up and journeying to the four cosmic trees of Colu will they have any hope of saving the planet…but what’s waiting for them will test the true mettle of their new alliances!
As one could have guess after Issue #1’s exciting conclusion, the situation at hand goes from bad to worse, and, come the end of this issue, from worse to abysmal. But, like readers learned during the Metal event, the view from the top is much more beautiful after seeing what lurks at the bottom; success is sweetest only after it follows the bitter taste of defeat.
Thanks to the efforts of a well-rounded creative team, Justice League: No Justice #2 feels balanced, and balance, in an epic story like Justice League: No Justice is paramount. As I said earlier, things go from bad to worse and thankfully, the decline makes sense and works to pul readers closer to the edge of their seats.
Justice League: No Justice being a mini-series has me concerned about how such a massive, wide-spanning story will be wrapped up in the coming two issues, but, regardless of my concern for a satisfying ending, I’m sure that the next two issues of this short-run will be worth reading and re-reading.
The Bottom Line:
Justice League: No Justice #2 is a solid, well-written, well-illustrated issue that is filled with excitement and moments of greatness; I’m unsure if how this mini-series will end and whether or not said ending will be satisfying enough for readers vested in what’s happening here, but I have faith.
