Justice League #18

After a year-and-a-half of keeping the same lineup, this issue finds the Justice League finally relaxing their oddly-demanding standards and welcoming some of the second tier heroes to their ranks (or at least giving them an audition).

It's a time-honored tradition in team books, and (as per said tradition), it's an issue where not much really happens, aside from introductions and interactions.

Writer Geoff Johns provides plenty of entertaining character interaction and a rather pointless fight sequence - and we meet a new version of a classic hero.

Jesus Saiz provides some excellent artwork, with strong layouts and well-crafted character designs.

But otherwise the comic is just kind of a placeholder, as we get ready to plunge into the next story arc.

So, a solid issue, but not exactly a classic.

Grade: B
