The action of the issue plays out well enough but the moments readers are most likely to find memorable are the quieter scenes where the characters are allowed to talk and play off one another. Yet Johns and Lemire do find ways to sneak character-development into the action. Consider the scene where Question's team of League members confronts Dr. Psycho and Martian Manhunter is given a chance to distinguish himself from Superman in terms outside of his super powers.
The artwork of Doug Mahnke continues to amaze. His pencils are clear enough and offer a goodly portion of detail without becoming cluttered in the smaller panels. The book's inking continues to be it's biggest flaw, with a team of five inkers with differing styles rendering the final look of the book inconsistent despite there only being one penciler.
