Comics of the Week (8/27/08) part 3

Justice Society of America #18 - part 3 of "One World, Under Gog" arc and the story continues to crawl. We see more of Gog's unique sense of justice and balance while the JSA members begin to quarrel among themselves. And, one of them gets an even more startling gift. The cast of this book is so large that it takes Geoff Johns so long to get this story towards its conclusion. And what I really wanted to see more of - Power Girl on Earth-2 - only got a page or two max. I hope things pick up soon as I do enjoy this cast a lot.

Final Crisis: Rogues' Revenge #2 (of 3) - here Geoff Johns is moving the story nicely. I really liked how he tied this into characters that debuted in Gotham Underground earlier in the year. He has the best handle on the Flash's villains, and he truly shows why they deserve their place in the pantheon of DC's deadliest. A perfect issue. I can't wait for Johns to pick up the reigns on the main Flash title again - just so we can continue to see his well-fleshed out villains. Scott Kolins artwork is wonderful as well.
