Justice League Dark 22
This particular part of the “Trinity War” is where the story slows way down. After all the action this was definitely a letdown for me personally but the art was wonderfully done by Mikel Janin. The story does not really progress or provide any real answers in this issue. Wonder Woman is still on a wild goose chase to try and help Superman while Batman is trying to stop her. Batman is following the lead of the Phantom Stranger and the heroes are divided between the pair. The story ends with Superman escaping from his restraints and leading a third team for answers as well. In summation, the Justice Leaguers chase their tails all issue long.
I think this was a case of just too much going on for a smaller caliber book to handle. Jeff Lemire struggled to write the guest crossover characters. On a positive note the usual suspects like Constantine and Zatanna shined in this issue. Overall everything just seemed a bit forced with too many heroes acting out of character. Since when does Batman blindly follow the advice of someone he never met? Hopefully the action picks back in part four and the bigger picture starts to get a little clearer. I would have to give this issue a solid yet disappointing 3 out 5.
