Justice Society of America #6

Justice Society of America #6 is a transitionary issue with the comic dealing with the fallout of the conflict from the opening arc of the series and starting to deal with the group of forgotten sidekicks who have been rediscovered. While some of these reappearances lead to tearful reunions with lost family and mentors, such as as Judy Garrick's heartfelt reunion with her father, many of the sidekicks don't have mentors to return to.

The comic also spends more time with the evolving status quo the Huntress has made with Batman, and her plans now that she seems permanently stuck in a past where she hasn't yet been born. For longtime DC readers, there's also a fun interaction between Khalid Nassour and Kent Nelson's sidekick Salem Nader which attempts to explain the bizarre history of Dr. Fate over the past 40 years. Let's just say it's complicated.

[DC, $3.99]
