Lost within the dystopian future of the Sixth Dimension, the heroes find themselves saved by none other than the Legion of Doom. Again, the combination of Scott Snyder and Jorge Jimenez continue to produce the premiere team book currently on the market. From the sheer beautiful artwork to the engaging and entertaining scripts, this series has it all. This penultimate issue sets the stage for the showdown between the League and their Sixth Dimension counterparts.
After narrowly escaping their captors in the previous issue, the League finds themselves aboard the Legion of Doom’s spaceship as they fill the heroes in on the details of this new timeline. With Batman seemingly behind all of the chaos and ruin of this future, the rest of the team must make it back to the Hall of Justice. With Superman still lost within the Sunless pocket dimension, Batman learns more secrets from the World Forger as he sets the events that will lead to this new future. With the help of the Legion, the League is able touchdown back on Earth for this final confrontation of the arc.
The master class artwork of Jorge Jimenez continues to set the bar even higher than he had done previously. Every page is layered with intricate details and sheer kinetic energy. Never a slouch when it comes to his art, Jimenez brings vibrancy and excitement unmatched in today’s market. From the heartwarming flashbacks with Superman and Jon back on the farm to an all-out battle in space, Jimenez continues to display nothing but perfection on the page. Alejandro Sanchez adds the high glass and beautiful saturated colors to bring the overall vibrancy and a more classic look to the incredibly dynamic pencils.
Producing his best work to date, Scott Snyder has indeed found his home within the Hall of Justice. Snyder continues to supplant his new ideas firmly into the DCU as a whole while still paying close attention to the previously established continuity. With each new issue, Snyder displays his growth as a writer and his ability to truly collaborate with each respective artist. Jimenez and Snyder together truly shine and bring the perfect flavor to this fan-favorite series.

Remaining ever exciting and an absolute sight to behold, this series blows contemporaries out of the water with the fun, imaginative stories and just all around love for this universe and these characters.
