Justice Society of America #6 opens with the focus more on Johns’ other book Stargirl: The Lost Children. We see Courtney reintroducing some of the lost children to their families which is all fine and dandy. However, I was expecting a bit more toward the events from the Justice Society of America series instead. So ultimately, I was shocked more than anything else seeing the focus.

Moreover, the shock continues with what Johns develops with Huntress and Bruce. And honestly, I’m not exactly sure if it’s the art or what, but both Huntress and Batman felt off. The voices didn’t jive with the characters and what should have been a more impactful and passionate scene came across as flat and emotionless. Nevertheless, a majority of Justice Society of America #6 was spent intertwining the two stories back together again, placing the lost children home, and seeing where the next chapter will lead.

Overall, Justice Society of America #6 was simply a really long epilogue. There is no action. No suspense. No thrills. And again, no real feelings or moments that drive the issue. It was actually the most flat I’ve seen a Johns issue in… years. Now, this wasn’t a bad issue by any stretch. However, it was unexpected, uneventful, and not worth the long hiatus that normally comes with this title. Moreover, I wasn’t a huge fan of the artwork. The characters appeared almost like rubber. The shadows and shading seemed off and the characters weren’t distinguishable with any characteristics. For example, Bruce Wayne could have been anyone.


Justice Society of America #6 is just a subtle, long epilogue to Stargirl: The Lost Children mixed with a dash of Justice Society of America. We now see a possible future for Huntress, as well as many of the lost children, and we get a wrinkle for the future of this book. However, will this wrinkle be enough to hook people into this book for the future? Probably not.

Readers, this non-action-packed, mellow, suspense-less display was extremely uncharacteristic of what Johns normally puts out. The art was uneventful and the story was way too simple and flat. Any issue that could be summarized in one sentence is normally not worth the buy. And sadly, that’s the case this week. If you’ve been reading along like I have, maybe you get it to be that completionist. Otherwise, maybe you just pass this week, pick up Justice Society of America #7, and not miss a beat. Let me know what you think, have a great week, and God Bless!
