Justice League 11 and 12

Um...ya. Well, this wasn't really a Justice League Story. It was more of a story featuring two Justice League members but um..ya. Weird. But anyways, it was okay. You do get a very caustophobic experience reading this, you almost feel like you are right there with Red Arrow and Vixen, but that is more because of Gene Ha's amazing art and not Meltzer's writing. We learn that Vixen has lost her powers and is now using other metahuman's powers for her own. But ya, not a Justice League story.

Thank God! This is Meltzer's final Justice League issue. After the wonderful Identity Crisis, I expected this run to be amazing. But it has been consistently slow, bland, and full of annoying narraration boxes where you are not sure who is speaking. Not to mention that no one in the League calls eachother by their code names. Now, this issue had all of those problems but there was some light in the darkness. I liked the whole day-in-the-life monitor duty thing and the art was good. I was also happy to see Martian Manhunter and Aquaman making their cameo roles but damn am I glad to see Meltzer leaving. Dwayne McDuffie will be much better than this (Let's hope). Oh and is Geo-Force a League member or not! And was Black Canary a founder or not!
