Comic Book Review: Justice League of America #1 - DC Comics (2017)

"The Extremists" Part One
Written by Steve Orlando
Pencils by Ivan Reis
Inks by Joe Prado, Oclair Albert & Julio Ferreira
Colors by Marcelo Maiolo

Batman's new Justice League of America are spread out across the world handling different situations while a group from another world has shown up and they are ready to make this Earth a better place; by ruling it.

This book feels very rushed and in a typical rag-tag group that need to find a way to get along otherwise the Earth is doomed kind of way.  Everything is held together using Batman as the one who brings them together(as if he didn't have enough going on in all the books he's in).  It all feels very forced so I am looking forward to this story to get going and being done so we can concentrate on the overall book and not trying to figure out where everyone fits.  Maybe I am just being overly picky.

Ivan Reis' art is always a pleasure to view.  The action scenes look great as do the closeups.  I also like how Reis is able to have a group scene encompass a page but still have panels within.

Overall, the book is fine.  It would be a nice start for someone looking for a new hero book with some characters you may not be as familiar with.
