I think this was the best issue of this book to date. Sturges really ups the ante with the character interactions and crazy fun concepts. I love that this Anna Fortune – whoever she is – has spells contained in little capsules! The budding romance between Cyclone and King Chimera, as well as Stargirl and Atom Smasher (Although she is much younger then him it’s legal in my state), and a hint of something between Sand and Power Girl. The subtle realms are so strange and exciting I wonder what exactly is going on there. Good issue. The back-up with Liberty Belle and Hourman has them split into boy and girl teams with Icicle and Tigress which made for some amusing banter. I liked it a lot even though I have kind of forgotten what happened before this issue.

The main story was okay. This book is certainly not as good as the main JSA book and I still think Williams belongs on a different book. One thing I found to be annoying was that Power Girl would even send this team to fight the King of Tears. She is not that dumb and she could have called in the other JSA members, why are they acting like the other team hates them or soemthing? It seems strange out of the blue. That being said, I didn’t dislike the issue, the story has potential and I wonder what is really going on. Why is Atom Smasher in the subtle realms? Plus I liked the idea of Tom going by Tomcat instead of Wildcat. Now only if we could get Alan Scott to go by Sentinel again. The Liberty Belle/Hourman back-up was decent enough, nothing to praise or complain about there.

I Love Roxie!

In the second issue of this series, Stargirl is retrieved from Arthur Pemberton and the Injustice Society shows up. Williams’s art is barely tolerable with his ugly faces in this issue. Most of the time Cyclone was drawn without any pupils! What is she Batman! Williams is better then this! I am still enjoying this book and the co-feature starring Liberty Belle and Hourman was a nice addition. I love Roxie too! She reminds me of Indigo but with a great sense of humor.
