Turnover can be rough for all those involved. Those dealing with the fallout have to adjust to the change in workload and manpower. Then there are those, who are the change agents, where they are dealing with change on two fronts. They’re the ones causing things to change. They have to deal with the grief they cause and the people they leave behind. Then there’s the unknown they deal with. This new circumstance which changes their lives completely. It’s never easy either way and it’s more difficult for everyone involved.
What happens when the people you most rely on are simply not there anymore or have moved from your inner circle? In the second issue of Day Of Judgment, our heroes are fighting on three fronts, and one hero chooses not step up this time.
We find some being inhabiting the Spectre battling the Sentinels Of Magic, finding a moment of weakness to temporarily defeat this demon. Meanwhile, Batman and Wonder Woman gather a contingent of the Justice League, where Zatanna, Firestorm, The Atom, and Faust head to an alternate dimension to reignite the fires in Hell since it has become frozen with Spectre’s exit. Alan Scott, Supergirl, and Wonder Woman head to Heaven to convince them to join the fight. By issue’s end, an unlikely hero decides to step up, making an uneasy alliance for all.
Overall, an issue that explores how vast the story is, making for an exciting climax. The story by Geoff Johns is intuitive and action-packed. The art by the creative team is remarkable. Altogether, an issue in this evolving story which gives fans the quality of storytelling which we have known Johns to provide.
