The final four issues of Justice are collected in the third volume. The first two volumes are setting up the story and this one resolves everything in an epic way. Alex Ross and Jim Kreuger’s story reaches its exciting conclusion as the Justice League of America squares off against the formidable Legion of Doom with the fate of the world at stake. There are huge fights and battles between good and evil. And futuristic-looking superhero armor to jazz things up.
The best way to solve problems is resorting to violence, and so the JLA decide to punch their way to victory. They use their superpowers and smarts to punch the bad guys and save the day. There are dozens of DC characters, both famous and obscure ones, facing off and fighting and punching their way through the plot. Alex Ross and Doug Braithwaite’s stunning artwork makes the punches look incredible.
There are a lot of characters and a lot of things going on. It’s not as convoluted as Crisis on Infinite Earths, but you’ll still be lost if you’re a newcomer to comics. There are just too many names and powers and histories to keep track of. You can still admire the artwork though. It’s stylistically realistic and fantastic to look at. It’s not essential reading but it’s still nice to own.
