The Justice League make their final stand against the Eradicator and his Daxamite army!

With the Flash and Madame Xanadu weakened, and the League few in number, it’ll take all the strength they can muster to stop Eradicator in his tracks. The final chapter of the Invasion of the Supermen ends here!

Venditti maintains a good balance of the characters that are showcased, giving most of the characters time to shine. And the main characters that really get to shine are John Stewart and Wonder Woman. The structure of the story is straight forward but maintains good pace and moments that make it bombastic and enjoyable read. Unfortunately, my only nitpick is that I wished that there was more Xanadu, but on the upside, readers get to see John Stewart take charge and lead the League into battle. Unlike the previous issue, Wonder Woman really gets the chance to shine and showcase why she is a living legend. Venditti has produced a really fun story that has a good balance of action and excitement that is needed in the current climate of self quarantining.

Doug Mahnke and Richard Friend provide excellent artwork in this issue. Mahnke’s pencils and Friends Inks is full of crisp energy that delivers the adrenaline action that Venditti writes for this installment. David Baron and Tom Napolitano do a great job at providing fantastic colorwork and lettering, making this final chapter of the Invasion of the Supermen fantastic! Unfortunately, in light of recent events with the current epidemic such as the Coronavirus has caused a lot of small businesses to suffer, and many folks to self quarantine themselves for safety. If at all possible, if you can, pick this issue up at your local comic shop, I definitely recommend adding it to your pull list this week.
