Justice League Odyssey Review
DC Comics takes a voyage to the far reaches of space as a new team of heroes comes forth in Justice League Odyssey. The team assembled is one by chance and luck being Starfire, Cyborg, Azrael, and Green Lantern Jessica Cruz.
Joshua Williamson writes a journey for our heroes filled with depth and ambition as it brings about a forgotten and hidden history beyond that of all existence. The ongoing series continues to develop the unknown mysteries of the universe as the team overcomes each obstacle.
The team enters the dreaded Ghost Sector, a lost area of space with hundreds of collapsed worlds. In this section of stars and planets our heroes encounter the tyrannical Darkseid. His motives are that of absolute domination as Cyborg, Starfire, Azrael, and Green Lantern discover a prophecy that can unravel all of reality.
The artwork is by the talented Stjepan Sejic who creates exotic civilizations, creatures, and environments of fantasy and science fiction. The penciling creates a complete picture with exaggerated lines and colors. Sejic goes over the characters and objects with a steady hand. Freedom presents itself with the characters and technology presented within the story, which offers a defiant style to the reader.
Sharp visuals complete the beautiful imagery that blend with the light source and action. A strong use of bright colors are green, blue, red, and yellow. The different pigments tend to fade into each other as if painted with a brush or water colors.
This comic is for fans of space adventures with an appreciation for an odd set of heroes. Justice League Oydssey will ultimately push our heroes across the cosmos and potentially the entire DC Universe as a whole.
