Bugs and Such (Justice League #35 Comic Review)

Summary
: Oh man. First, poor Wonder Woman dealing with a douche. But then again, it makes sense that there can’t always be fans of the Justice League when things happen. Trust me though, you are gonna want to punch this guy as much as Wonder Woman does. This issue was more about comedy and filler than story other than the beginning and end. But boy does it fill. Priest’s writing is always amazing and it still manages to keep you entertained while throwing in major story issues. I liked the art in this one as well, no one likes bugs. These bugs are no exception. Even in some of their simplicity of art.

SWARM: The PEOPLE vs. JUSTICE LEAGUE…Part 2

Writer: Christopher Priest

Art and Cover: Pete Woods

Variant Cover: Nick Bradshaw with Alex Sinclair

What You Need to Know: The Justice League had a lot happening in the last issue: an alien invasion, a terrorist situation and an earthquake that lead to a tsunami. They relied on Batman to make the calls, but because of his exhaustion, he made a huge mistake that cost innocent lives. Now the League must deal with those consequences.

In This Issue: “Evidence” NYPD 116th Precinct Queens, NY: Poor Diana is just trying to get her sword back from the cops who botched the rescue of the nuns and lead to loss of life. Worse, she has to deal with police official Mr. Ryan who seems less then convinced that the League did more good than bad, not to mention he seems to think Wonder Woman wearing a “costume” isn’t going to help get this guy free.

“Glenn and John” Justice League Satellite: In a weird yet hilarious moment, a stranger appears at the Justice League headquarters, interrupting poor Jessica Cruz while she is having a “private moment”. The two fight and after some interesting dialogue, we learn the stranger is looking for John Jones, or as we know and love: Martian Manhunter. Thankfully, Wonder Woman, Superman, Batman and Cyborg arrive to clear the situation. Turns out, this “bounty hunter” is looking for a “cockroach” that has alluded him in a capture. Of course, it’s hiding on none other than, Earth. Jessica calls Barry Allen to see if he and Wally West can get a head start on scouting the city for the bug and it doesn’t take long for either to find it.

“The Plan” Justice League Satellite:  Meanwhile, Wonder Woman confesses to Superman that she is starting to question her position at the League. Of course, this is overheard by Batman, but there is no time now that the bug is found and the team is working hard to contain it without contaminating the rest of the world. Cause that’s what cockroaches do. Thankfully, Cyborg and the bounty hunter have just the thing to stop it.

“Pink Eye” Justice League Satellite:  The League is watching on the news how they were able to successfully save San Francisco while discussing their victory, but it’s short-lived when another broadcast comes on. This one is showing the incidents of what happened with the terrorist acts; the video has gone viral.
