IGN: Justice League vs. Suicide Squad #3 Review

Recommended Posts

There's a lot to be said for DC's new approach to event comics and the more or less weekly shipping schedule. But the drawback is that this makes it much more difficult to stick to a single creative team. Justice League vs. Suicide Squad started out with the amazingly talented Jason Fabok in issue #1. That set a high bar that subsequent issues were never going to match. That's one of the reasons this mini-series is beginning to lose its momentum.

Even Fabok might have been hard-pressed to deliver an exciting, visually dynamic issue #3, however. Issue #3 is largely devoid of action, with the Justice League now trapped in ARGUS custody and Max Lord's team still lurking in the shadows. There are plenty of shots of characters staring each other down in intimidating fashion, but that's about as exciting as the conflict becomes in this chapter. To his credit, Jesus Merino does the best he can with the often limiting material. He's able to take advantage of a strong scene between a weakened Superman and an emotionally conflicted Killer Frost, injecting it with plenty of emotion. But apart from that and the occasional shot of characters like Johnny Sorrow, there's little visual energy in these pages.
