R.I.P Jade

JSA Classified #12
Written by Stuart Moore
Art and Cover by Paul Gulacy and Jimmy Palmiotti

This story I think is really about the death of Jade and how it affects Alan Scott. Well, at least this part of it. I think this is important because it does need to be dealt with somewhere and this is as good of a place as any. Vandal Savage is not portrayed as even remotely likeable this time around, the way he murders his daughters cat in the flash back and even his facial expressions make you hate him. So hats off to the artist although the flashback to Jade's death makes Donna Troy, Starfire, and Jade look terribly ugly with distorted facial features. But this is only a minor flaw in what is essentially a well-drawn and well-written book.
