The finality of the Totality is here folks!

The Legion of Doom and The Justice League battle it out for the possession of the Totality! What new mysteries will be discovered? What old faces will appear, and what awaits both the Legion of Doom and the League at the end?

After 7 issues, I can say that this was a pretty cool story full of awesome set pieces, and interesting ideas that kinda flip everything on its head here and there. I think by the end of this story, it really ties things together in a cohesive way. I feel that Scott Snyder was having a lot of fun writing this entire arc. Although for some readers, I could understand why the beginning of this arc was a little rough due to processing various concepts and contexts that influenced the events at play. In regards to this issue, I really enjoyed it! Snyder did a great job with writing the plot of the story, although I still have minor problems with some of the humor since it felt a little weak here and there, but not so bad that a reader couldn’t chuckle too. Batman’s sense of humor or self-awareness of how his voice is imitated is as odd as it is humorous, so that may take getting used to. But again, that doesn’t take away from how awesome this issue was. Especially when familiar faces appear to make things very interesting for the book which I’m sure Snyder will elaborate further within the series. There are some strong moments, which I’d like to say Hawkgirl, and John Stewart, steal the show and shine. Overall, this conclusion (without spoiling it) had all the right parts that made it a good issue and satisfying conclusion, for now of course.

Cheung returns to conclude what he had started! Since he was the artist of the first issue, it was fitting that he returned to do the pages of the final issue, which he really gets to shine and cut loose. My personal favorite sequences is the fight between Hawkgirl and Lex Luthor. It’s not often that Hawk Girl is portrayed in a really awesome fashion that makes her look really badass. The layouts the carefully selected scenes that required full pages, the entire issue is an example of an artist consistent in his craft, making an enjoyably visual read. Morales, Wong, and Cheung provide some really crisp inks that make the pages look fantastic, and with colors provided by Morey, really heightens the overall aesthetic of the book. Be sure to pick this issue up on Wednesday at your local comic shop or buy it digitally at Comixology.
