    The penultimate issue of this absolutely ridiculous miniseries is probably the best since the first, as it gets back to what it does bestgiving its three main characters surprisingly strong storyarcs.

    This is hands down my favorite book DC has put out in a while. I absolutely love the Saturday morning cartoon vibes, especially the way that it doesn’t just feel like a gimmick comic. I know we still have one issue to go, but I would absolutely love to see these characters again.

    The Jurassic League #5 had some great fight scenes and good character development for the major heroes. It sets up the final confrontation between Darkyloseid and the entire Jurassic League for the next issue, and it gives us motive for why the heroes are inspired to fight evil. It does leave you wondering if Jokerzard will end up having a bigger role, or if he only thinks he will. What do you think will happen in the conclusion?

    The penultimate chapter of The Jurassic League relies familiar forms from superhero stories to lay out its tale. There’s the slow build of a final confrontation with each reluctant hero eventually making the right choice – and some simply being re-added at the end. It’s the calm before the inevitable big showdown with Darkyloseid. What raises it above the familiar beats of every Justice League origin tale from the past decade is Juan Gedeon’s sense of style. Whether it’s donning Ares’ armor or Superman’s smashing arrival, seeing these dinosaurs impact their world remains a joy for anyone who retained their own childlike sense of wonder regarding dinos and capes. The plot may be familiar and worn, but the new paint job is outstanding.

    The Jurassic League #5 is an adequate continuation of a basic Justice League story reskinned with dinosaurs. The character development and plot are all basic retellings of work we’ve already seen before, but if you’re into dinosaur reskinning as a novelty, there’s plenty to like here for small children.
