Publisher’s Summary: “The Sixth Dimension” part one! At last, the Justice League has the map to the Sixth Dimension in hand-and with it, they have the key to saving the Multiverse from utter destruction! But things aren’t as simple as they seem, because they still need to get to the doorway-and to do that, they’ll have to go through the only being in all of existence who can get them there: Mr. Mxyzptlk!
Introducing a new story arc, Justice League (2018-) #19 expands the multiverse and adds another dimension–the Sixth Dimension–which promises to house the power that our heroes need to combat the Legion of Doom and finally make-up for breaking the Source Wall. Surely, things are going to take a turn for the worse.
It’s difficult not to become excited and go into a reading with high expectations when the cover art features the members of the Justice League battling against beast-like buildings and vehicles from Metropolis; thankfully, Justice League (2018-) #19 lives up to, and exceeds, expectations, delivering an out-of-this-world, extradimensional reading experience that’s fun and exciting all the while maintaining the series’ underlying dread. Snyder’s writing is sharp and inspired, making it clear that he’s enjoying himself.
Throughout the issue, Jorge Jiminez’ artwork is amazing; his artistic prowess is put on full display as each panel is beautifully composed with painstaking filled with detail and energy. Thanks to a script that allows for exciting, mind-bending illustrations, Jiminez is able to create unrestrained, and the end result is impressive. There isn’t a single page in this book that I wouldn’t be happy to hang in my office.
The Bottom Line:
The Multiverse continues to expand in what promises to be an exciting new arc; impressive, imaginative, and epic in scope, Justice League 19 not to be missed.
