Story: A great premise that makes lots of promises, and it delivers, but there's so much more going on here than just what the title suggests. A quick study of the two team lineups will make any knowledgeable DC fan question how the Squad could stand toe to toe with the League, but it looks like a slightly reinvented Killer Frost makes that possible. She's become this sort of Rogue (from the X-Men) type character. Not in the sense that she gains the powers of people she touches, but the intensity of her powers are determined by the strength of the life force she feeds on, so when she gets her cold hands on Superman....well, she's definitely a wild card. While this is going on, an old JL villain, Maxwell Lord seeks out a group of villains to help him take his revenge on Amanda Waller. I have to say that Joshua Williamson really reached at the bottom of the barrel for this one! We see some old, and longtime DC "C" and "D" list villains here. Dangerous, but obscure unless you've been reading comics for decades. I was glad to know at least three of them, and I'm not going to tell you who they are...but, it's pretty good stuff! This book sports some BIG battles between multiple teams, extra dimensional monsters, and a rage filled populace! I think all the characters are written well and speak appropriately. I was glad to see a more intelligently written JL story as opposed to what Bryan Hitch has been giving us.
Art: Seems like every issue here is done by someone different. I don't like when crossovers and large arcs have a slew of creative people on them. It gives off the impression that there are too many cooks in the kitchen. Jason Fabok starts things off wonderfully! He's one of the best in the world, and it shows. Tony S. Daniel does a fine job as well. Most of the artists in this book do a fine job. I just wish this would have been a limited series with one writer and one artist. It gives a more cohesive feel to the overall experience. The fact that the other artists in this book are not as good as Fabok and Daniel AND that I would have preferred one writer and artist is the only reason I'm giving this 4 stars instead of 5.
Overall: A pretty intense, high octane JL story that is much, much more than the Michael Bay crap that Hitch has been giving us in the main JL title. This is an excellent example of escapist comics. Sometimes, all you need is a good, entertaining story about good vs. evil. It doesn't always have to be a failing event that preaches to everyone about how evil Trump and America are (lookin' at you Nick Spencer). I gotta recommend you get this!
All in all, there is a few lines or character moments or dialogue I might have small issues with but they're really trifle. This book is a pretty fun read, good art, mostly good writing (ESPECIALLY for Rebirth JL) and my lands, the variant covers, there are just tons of them featured at the back of the book and it's always fun to see different artists bring these characters together in their own style. And of course, we get popular characters heavily featured in them like Wonder Woman and Harley Quinn. Those were really fun to see and if they aren't your favorite you're sure to find a "___" versus "____" cover that suits your preferences. Batman and Deadshot, Croc and Aquaman (fun moments between those two in book as well) and so on.
Although, one pet peeve that just has to do with the title, it's cheap. The big fight between the two teams takes place in like one or two issues then we are given our real threat, that is what the book should have been titled after. I know they fight SOME of the team again but by that point, it is mixed up, we got Batman with some of this outside party and the Suicide Squad, so I am left not caring too much for the title of this event, as I said, it feels cheap and a way to attract attention and it should be able to do that on its on just at the implication of the Justice League and Suicide Squad together.
