There are some weaknesses. To be sure, Gog's eventual turn is predictable. The central conflict driving the issues is a fairly cliche, retreaded idea we've seen a thousand times before. What makes it interesting here is that, beside the cliche, character interactions take some surprising turns and the factions that develop in the team prompt a genuine sense of dread and concern from the reader. After all, the JSA is supposed to be above these types of conflicts, and yet they manage somehow to be more human than many a stick figure currently being published by both DC and Msrvel. Gog's failure to provide a miracle for Commander Steel is never directly addressed and is distracting. Gog performs miracles for a number of other characters but for some reason, Steel's particular predicament is ignored.Read more ›
Johns is a master at story-telling, and his long-running fan favorite Justice Society explains why: he understands his characters and their motivations, and is a master and moving stories forward in both plot and sub-plot. He provides the reader with three-dimensional characters and conflicts. You can read the story summary elsewhere. It;s always exciting to see a team fight within itself, heroes battling heroes, but Johns does it here not for a stereotypical misunderstanding but based on philosophical differences that make the reader wonder whether the "wrong" side is really all that wrong. That's good storytelling.
The bonus in all this is the cleverly interspersed Alex Ross art and Kingdom Come tie-in. Well not so much of a bonus as it is an integral part of the storyline, but it is handled well and gives fans of Kingdom Come a chance to revisit a favorite time and place, and connects it to the current reality.
It's interesting to read the three star reviews from others, and I am left wondering what they would consider a five-star story. If any comic story ever earned a five star-rating, it's this epic.
