Young Justice #17
DC Comics (August, 2012)“UNCOMMON DOMINATORS” WRITER: Kevin Hopps & Greg Weisman ARTIST: Christopher Jones COLORIST: Zac Atkinson LETTERER: Dezi Sienty ASSISTANT EDITOR: Sarah Gaydos EDITOR: Jim Chadwick
As the Justice League takes on a giant snake monster the team takes on its master, Naga-Naga, head of Kobra, who wants to sacrifice his twin brother to become a god. Luckily, Kid Flash has learned to accept magic and comes up with the solution to save the day.
What they got right: Action, fun, getting to see the Justice League (in this case Batman, Green Arrow, and the Flash) in action…I want a new DC universe spinning out of this title.
What they got wrong: If “snake plus fireworks totally screams Streetcar” Named Desire, maybe I should see this movie? Although I’m pretty sure it doesn’t.
Recommendation: Currently the best superhero comic coming out of DC Comics. Support this series.
