Grade 8 Up–In this rather melancholy book, the past, present, and future versions of the Justice League come together. There is a cerebral quality that is strong here, as the concepts of time, change, and personal interdependence are explored in remarkable ways. How I love proving Clark wrong, Batman states early on. Each chapter is drawn and lettered in a different way–from classically bold to ultra postmodern with extreme digitization (that's hard to read). Overall, this title comes across as a history of these characters. The Flash, one of DC's oldest, is drawn as an old man. The younger heroes–GeoForce, Dream Girl, etc.–stand around in awe of the Big Two, Superman and Batman. The latter, with his sour disposition, makes for the better read, although the story is frequently taken a bit far. A fascinating collection of meditations on where the Justice League has been and where it potentially will end up, The Lightning Saga is an intelligent and fun title.–John Leighton, Brooklyn Public Library, NY

"Meltzer delivers a script with the same polish and suspense he brought to the hugely successful Identity Crisis, bringing humanity and personality to the many members of the League that few writers in mainstream comics are capable of delivering... A satisfying and meaty story that should thrill new and old readers equally. Grade: A."See all Editorial Reviews

As Tornado's Path, this one I read it a year ago in digital. Why I purchase it now on trade?. I don't know. I don't regret it though. Both books are a pretty good package. Read morePublished on October 7, 2010 by Xavier Zavala Heras
