R.E.B.E.L.S. Annual: Starro the Conqueror #1

When Grant Morrison wrote "JLA," Starro was one of the first characters he pitched across his League. In doing so, Morrison elevated the character of Starro. Bedard builds upon that elevation and delivers a great read.

Justice League: Cry for Justice #4

"Cry for Justice" continues on, with less crying, but the same amount of unnecessary torture, infighting, and grumpiness. Jay Garrick and the Shade appear to make things a little more interesting.
