Justice League moves to the present in issue #7
Entertainment Weekly secured a preview of issue #7 to Justice League this week, the article securing information that our back-story arc about the league is coming to a close and we’ll get a taste of the heroes acting out in 2012. The issue is set to demonstrate many things, not just their actions and behavior but also the public perception of the group and the experience of the “Villain’s Journey”. It’s a hard hit that fans will see, they’ll also get a dose of SHAZAM! in a backup story as well as this new story picks up speed and gets readers on the present day journey.
The 4 pages of tease that EW has are great to open into, it’s almost a form of torture though. Seeing the desperation of the people and the vast amount of faith dumped into the league only to see the words “But that will change” as they arrive in time to save the people from a desperate hour. Fortunately the book goes on sale tomorrow so there shouldn’t be too much delay if you really need to jump in after catching these pages.
