“The War of Jokes and Riddles Part 4”
Written by: Tom King
Art by: Mikel Janin, Hugo Petrus, June Chung and Clayton Cowles

This so called “war” has been anything but, from what we’re seeing. We only get told that there’s a war of jokes and riddles but we never really see it.

In the last issue, I wondered to myself how he’d handle these new powers and how long they’ll last. Now, let’s jump into issue #28 and see how these powers are affecting him...

The relationship Jason, Artemis and Bizarro share is so deep. Last issue we left the team in a dramatic event of fearing that they’ll lose Bizarro. Let’s jump into issue #13 and find out what will happen to the team... (Spoiler filled review. Overall comments at the end is non-spoiler.)
