And here’s another issue of the best superhero comedy around. As ever, there’s lots of banter between the heroes with barely a villain in sight. Batwoman shows up on screen to let the established heroes know how cool she is, husband and wife Green Arrow and Black Canary (soon to be spun off into cafe-set sitcom Ollie’s Dinah) bicker at the fact he’s not phoned her for weeks, and Supergirl realises she’s in a comic book (click on image to enlarge). Nooooo, not weaponry and science! Whoda thunk it?
With two more issues to go it’s likely writer James Robinson and Mauro Cascioli will have to tie up the maguffin that has rent the Justice League asunder-ish, we may even see a battle with Prometheus, but don’t let that ruin the fun for you. Mind, the fact that the cover illo and blurb have zilch to do with the interiors show they’re winking (I think I got the right vowels there) at the reader. And the expository dialogue and regular close-ups of Supergirl’s bum alone are worth the price of admission . . . your sanity.
