    A breathtaking beginning to the new year, incredible stuff. A book full of impacting story and master artwork, this is a guaranteed. If this is the benchmark for comics this year then we are in for a treat.

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary

    I freely admit this book makes me giddy. I grew up watching the ‘Creature Double Feature’, a steady diet of Gamera and Godzilla flicks. I love the Justice League. I love when folks treat Supergirl right. I feel like I should pop some popcorn when I read this.

    The entire team is having fun on every page across this issue. We get to see every hero have their moment to shine while also getting those “jump for joy” moments when Godzilla swoops in to do battle in a way only Godzilla knows how to do. The colors are stunning, the letterers seamlessly fit into the art and the panels, and the writing shows that this team is a well-oiled machine, making us feel like kids with our toys again. I truly thought this mash-up was only something I would get in my room as a child with my action figures, and seeing it brought to life in such a well-done way has been so much fun.

    The Super Powered Fancast

    The Story: Buccellato continues to craft an interesting, thrilling and entertaining story in this issue. There is some great suspense in the issue and a fun world to explore for readers. The action is thrilling throughout and I love the mystery continuing to unfold in the series. The ending was a fantastic cliffhanger that makes me excited to see what happens next.

    The Art: Duce and Derenick deliver some great imagery throughout the issue. The art is visually thrilling and captures the suspense and spectacle of the series.

    Since Godzilla seemingly killed Superman in the second issue, things have gone from bad to worse for the heroes. The League is overwhelmed and not making much headway against Godzilla and the other monsters, while the Legion of Doom lurk in the background making plans. Meanwhile, in Atlantis, the biggest Kaiju yet is ready for his big moment, forcing Arthur to make a bold—and kind of ridiculous—decision to fight fire with fire. The art, with an assist from Tom Derenick, is strong, but what makes this series work is a few moments of quiet amid the chaos. Lois’ reaction to seeing Superman since he was attacked is very emotional, and I was a big fan of the role Kong is playing here. The only monster who doesn’t seem out to get humanity, he makes an odd partner for Green Arrow as they face off against the League of Assassins. At the very least, it’s delivering some fun, over-the-top adventure.

    The Comicbook Dispatch

    Overall, Justice League Vs. Godzilla Vs. King Kong #4 is mainly surface level just like the entire series to date. That’s not necessarily a bad thing. However, readers get monsters, action, and a crossover story they never thought they’d ever get. Ultimately, it reminds me of the Masters of the Universe stories where they meet the DC Characters. The writers have so many working parts to balance that it never really goes too deep but offers fans of all genres a little bit of excitement. And that’s what fans will get this week.

    Fans get monster melee mixed with some killer art directly related to the monsters. However, even the art struggled at times when it was more involved with solely the DC Characters. If you’re a Godzilla or King Kong fan, this series is mainly for you. If you’re an Aquaman fan, this issue was more of a tease. You’ll have to wait until next week to see how he fairs.

    DC usually does a good job with crossovers, and this one is great for both DC fans and Godzilla and Kong fans. If you are not reading “Justice League vs Godzilla vs Kong” month-to-month, you need to pick up the trade when it becomes available.

    The story slows down a lot in this issue, as Buccellato is using the issue largely as set up for the second half of the story. I wish we would have had more background story with the Green Arrow subplot as well as the Supergirl subplot. In the last issue Kara picks up a lot of the slack from the result of an out of commission Superman. In this issue her story picks up where the last issue left off, giving us only a page until she flys off and we do not hear from her for the rest of the issue.

    Justice League vs. Godzilla vs. Kong #4 continues to give me more questions than answers. This has been improving with each issue as the characters also learn more, but overall, this issue feels like it was just about getting from one point to another. Everything the creative team came up with seems to have worked, but the book’s just not quite in-depth enough to stand on its own.

    Justice League vs. Godzilla vs. Kong has to this point done a magnificent job of capturing the impressive scale and sense of terror that one would expect from a Kaiju attack on the DC Universe. Each of the massive creatures now roaming the DC Universe, including Godzilla, have impressed in their battles against the League, but the focus shifts a bit in issue #4, and not to the book’s favor. The current status of Superman and the effect his supposed death has on everyone else takes precedence early on, but the exchanges in these moments feel off, and at times the dialogue and the artwork feel heavy handed, taking you out of the story. Unfortunately the issue’s biggest monster battle takes a bit to get going, and doesn’t really seem to click until the end. The strongest moments in the issue are tied to Kong and Green Arrow, who shine in every scene they’re in, and those scenes are able to capture the impact and emotion that other sequences lack. This has been a thoroughly entertaining series so far, and while issue #4 takes a small step back, I’m still excited to see what wonderful chaos issue #5 can bring to the party.
