When it comes to Scott Snyder as a writer I’ve enjoyed a lot of his work, not all of it, but for the most part I think his work is really good. When it comes to his Justice League it is definitely one of the best works of his that I have read.

The best two aspects of the book is that it feels epic and even though the team are all split up, each problem that each member faces  feels important and huge. The second aspect piggybacks from the first in that Snyder makes each member feel important. In a lot of previous Justice League runs it often feels like characters are shortchanged but in this one everyone has a role.

This issue builds on the things done by Tynion in the last issue as Tynion explained Lex’s new-found mythos of embracing, entropy and chaos. However, this issue uses both Joker and Lex Luthor to embody this. This mythos or idea is what makes the ending really interesting as the Justice League have to connect with everyone in the planet to encourage them to embrace Justice.

In conclusion, this issue and the arc so far have been really good. One of the aspects that I really enjoyed is that, at the end the team feels broken. Even though this isn’t the end and the team feels like they have won, there are repercussions, such as Batman’s bones being broken, Barry being affected by the still force and John Stewart becoming an ultra violet lantern. So far, this run is looking to be great.
