Review

While Superman fights for his life in a pocket dimension, the remaining members of the Justice League continue being tantalized with images of a perfect post-war world by their all-powerful, yet-to-be-revealed, host.

Unfortunately, the cover of this issue spoils the big reveal that’s buried in the book’s midsection; regardless, this arc has been moving in a predictable, but exciting, direction since it started. Ever since the team arrived in the Sixth Dimension, there’s been a sneaking suspicion that everything isn’t as kosher as it seems, and here, in Justice League (2018-) #21, the team learns that they are being hosted in a makeshift utopia crafted by none other than the World Forger. (Cue dramatic music)

Things aren’t much better on Earth, but we’ll have to talk about that in next issue’s review, as I want you, dear reader, to experience the situation for yourself first.

Scott Snyder and Jorge Jimenez have plotted a larger-than-life tale that teems with exciting elements; Snyder’s writing is sharp, and Jimenez’ artwork is mind-blowing. What more could one want from a superhero comic?

The Bottom Line

Yet again, Scott Snyder and Jorge Jimenez produce a stunning issue; the third chapter in the “Sixth Dimension” story arc, Justice League (2018-) #21 is one not to miss.

The Worst Dudes #1 Review

The Worst Dude is funny, irreverent, and profane as well as delightfully packed with swashbuckling adventure. Definitely worth a look.

Jupiter’s Legacy Is Not Watchmen and That’s Okay: Netflix Original Series Review

Jupiter’s Legacy hits incredibly hard while offering viewers a well-crafted blend of caped-crusading-escapism and social commentary; this combination makes for a grounded viewing experience that’s as exciting as it is though-provoking. Jupiter’s Legacy is a must-watch series.

Eve #1 Review

Eve is more than just a typical “save the planet” story. It is more about a little girl’s courage and a love that endures even in simulation. Armed with the fake bear and a dinghy, her adventure starts.
