This Wednesday, May 1oth, Justice League of America #6, written by Steve Orlando with Ivan Reis and Joe Prado on art, hits newsstands, the second part of “Mythic”! Expect lots of heroism, mayhem, and… well, look at that cover! Check out these preview pages that DC Comics was kind enough to share!
What the Justice League of America creative team manages to accomplish month-in and month-out is raise the stakes and make readers feel a sense of urgency and concern for the characters. Batman and company took on the seemingly Sisyphean task of showing humans their inner heroes and how they took can step up in the name of good. Orlando matches the plots to that mission statement, showing groups of antagonists who claim to humanity’s best interests at heart, but are led astray by anger or pride or doubt. By juxtaposing examples of how not to act with how the JLA operates–as in the current “Mythic” storyline–we’re seeing that mission statement in action. With Reis and Prado on art duties, the result is a dynamic, action-filled tale that engages, educates, and inspires.
Justice League of America #6, written by Steve Orlando with Ivan Reis and Joe Prado on art, is on sale Wednesday, May 10th, from DC Comics.
From the official issue description:
“MYTHIC” part two! Aegeus’s mythic horde continues to steamroll over the battered landscape of Penn City, and the only thing standing in their path is…the Atom?? Also: Lobo is laid out, his healing factor neutralized, and the only thing that could possibly save him requires a level of violence that we may not be allowed to print!
