    Trinity War Transition

    Before I read Justice League Volume 4 I had jumped right into trinity war which references events that happen in this volume. The volume was enjoyable but seemed like a filler transition into the trinity war event.
    The first 3 issues of the volume actually pertain to the cover and volume name but things seem rushed, past events that we've never seen are briefly explained. The first half just seems to be all over too quickly and suddenly jumps to the remaining 3 issues which cover the main story of trinity war (which is disappointing if you picked up the main event collection.)
    I would recommend getting this if you can't go without every detail in a series but know that if you've read Trinity war, You've read half of this volume.

    This book is not for the casual comic book fan. It has many threads and plotlines running through it culled from all different parts of the DC multiverse and they don't mesh well. It begins off OK with the Justice League deciding to increase their numbers and so invited a bunch of potential candidates up to the Watchtower for a meet & greet/mixer to vet them. One of the newbies goes crazy and a punch-out occurs that ends with Atom Girl making a memorable intro and looking real good doing it. So far so good. Then we hop skip and jump ahead and it turns out that the Justice league has picked three of the newbies to join their ranks - no explanation why - and they are left alone on the Watchtower - again no explanation - and Despero gets loose with only the three new guys to care of him. They fail but before you know it The Martian manhunter appears from nowhere, saves the day and than vanishes back to the nowhere from whence he came, again, with no explanation. And that's how this book continues; a bunch of disparate story lines thrown together ad hoc with no real attempt to explain why, how or where any of these events came to be. It's all every unfocussed and confusing to the casual fan. I almost gave this book 2 stars because of this fact but I relented because it does have it's strengths. The Atom Girl story line - though full of holes - was well written and enticing and she ties all the loose ends together. But the plot is left on the shelf in favor of pursuing other plot threads that don't really belong together and it gets forgotten in the mess that ensues. Also the Bro-mance between Batman and Superman is explored more and the Superman/ Wonder Woman romance is given some air time and the artwork is sharp and detailed. There also is a lot of action sequences and the multitude of heroes both good and bad are well rendered but the jumbled mess of a story line and the constant introduction of new heroes and dramatic changes of people, places and things left me wanting. If they had given us more background or focused more on the Atom Girl story and followed her working plots on top of plots on top of subplots I would have enjoyed this book much more. There certainly was something there but the book was too much of a hodge podge of unrelated stories to win me over.

    The Justice League is under attack from within and without.

    Heavily detailed graphics tell the story as there is no dialogue or text. With lots of action and emotional content to assist, the narrative is able to flow fairly smoothly.

    Overall, a fun read.
