Before the Justice League of America, the Justice Society of America were Earth's mightiest defenders, and now - revived and rejuvenated, featuring a dynamic roster of superheroes including The Flash, Hawkgirl, Starman, Wildcat and Black Canary - they are once more ready to stand and fight against the forces of destruction. A creature known as Obsidian leads an invasion on the Earth. In this battle there can be no winner and the tragedy awaiting may well tear the JSA apart for ever...

The main problem I had with JSA: Darkness falls is that there is just way to much going on and not enough action is really taking place. The writers are so busy incorporating all the characters in the story that the plot gets lost. Also, from a readers point of view, because of the vast number of characters it is hard to keep your mind on what little plot there is.

This graphic novel is simply a reprint from the DC comics series using the same poor quality paper with a nice glossy cover. For £15 we should expect more, but don't get it.

Sadly, this is a disappointing graphic novel which will only really appeal to hard-core JSA fans.
