Within the past 5 years DC Comics has released a multitude of books under their “Rebirth” and later their “DC Universe” line of books. Their latest is the “Infinite Frontier” series that has had a multitude of books launched and relaunched from them. One of these latest books is Justice League: Last Ride. It was written by Chip Zdarsky (Jughead) and drawn by Miguel Mendonca (Aquaman). The cover was drawn by Darick Robertson and Diego Rodriguez. It shows an extremely out-of-character Superman using his heat vision to annihilate Parademons.
As always, the review will be judging the comic based solely on the contents within the issue itself, disregarding any previous issues, and instead judging it on its own merit. This issue is a fairly enjoyable comic on its own, but could definitely be improved by the other issues in this story.
As much as I love pretty much everything Chip Zdarsky has written (for instance, his Jughead series is my favorite comic series of all time), but I am not a huge fan of this issue. It is pretty much entirely just an extended fight scene of the Justice League and Parademons fighting. Honestly, there is not much to say about the issue. The Justice League fighting Darkseid is one of the most common things they have done in the past, so not much to say here that hasn’t already been covered before. If you liked the meaningless action sequences of Zach Snyder’s Justice League, I guarantee you will enjoy this issue, but if not, you are probably fine to skip it.
Now for the part of this review where I tell you how to spend your hard-earned money (or in this case, how not to.) I would not recommend anyone buy this for the price they are asking, and honestly, it is extremely hard to suggest anyone buy the book. For the same price as some smaller streaming services, this is not worth it at all. If you like Snyder’s Justice League or like the other issues, I would suggest reading through it on DC UNIVERSE, but if not, go read one of Zdarsky’s other works.
