The latest issue of Justice League of America feels a bit like a weird take off of Frozen, which, I am fairly certain, was Steve Orlando’s intent.
Killer Frost proves to be central to the Queen of Fables’ plans, and a largely unwilling accomplice to them. It’s a fun story from beginning to end. And what an ending!
The story doesn’t actually conclude in this issue, but the last page changes the game completely.
Orlando has fun with the Queen of Fables in this chapter of the tale, with her in command of all she sees. The art, by Edwards, Henriques and Owens, is just great. I think they had as much fun illustrating the world gone mad as I had reading about it. Loads of detail, and very expressive scenes.
The subplot with the Ray leaving the team, and feeling responsible for bringing peace to Vanity, his hometown, develops here as well. I really don’t trust the new Aztek.
It’s so hard not to talk about the character that shows up on the last page. Not someone I ever expected to see in a Justice League story, seriously. Even more exciting are the other guest stars implied to be in the next issue. I knew this was a fun story, but had no idea just what treats Orlando had waiting in the wings!
