Gail Simone’s band of grey area super-villains has taken a job that has split the team down the middle. Their latest employer has turned an island into a prison where they are keeping a demon prisoner along with a whole lot of Amazons.
Things have been going wrong for the team ever since they took this gig and things just escalate in this issue. I’m amazed that this is an ongoing series and I hope it can continue – its sales are solid but not outstanding. At least there are several other ongoing DC titles below it before there’s any concern. This is my favorite DC title right behind Green Lantern right now. Simone is in top form here and the art has been consistently good. Here’s hoping Simone and company can keep on producing issues like this one. (Shane Hnetka)
