Inventive, creative storyline. I don't know how to put my finger on why I find this so enjoyable. Perhaps it's the dialogue that Kelly infuses into the story - throws out the solemnity and infuses a sense of fun.

In this thrilling and hectic conclusion to the Obsidian Age, the JLA are dead and have to re-write time itself to save everyone in present day Earth.

If you can get past the goofy time-traveling stuff, this one's pretty fun. It's the biggest epic of the series so far, and worth the long run.
Me ha gustado muchísimo. Una historia interesante y compleja que trae consecuencias para todos los miembros de la Liga de la Justicia.
An ok end to the storyline. A tad involved but it worked. I especially liked the aftermath character moments, and the reasons why people may leave the league.
Read my review for volume one, it carries over. You could do worse than this one, but you could do MUCH better too.
Really enjoyable. Really got a hold of the characters, and who doesn't see skeleton superheroes fighting.

Engaging story, that could have been spectacular but ends up being somewhat convoluted.
