Justice League Last Ride #7 is finally here and is the epic conclusion to Chip Zdarsky’s alternate future tale.
The main cover of this issue is by Darick Robertson and Diego Rodriguez and showcases this version of the Justice League in its entirety, standing side by side in profile staring down an incoming threat. It’s a classic comic art style, making the characters seem appropriately tenured and iconic. The cover could also be interpreted as the League is looking off into the distance at an unknown future, a fitting image for the last cover of the series.
The variant cover is by Chip Zdarsky himself, and gives us a very cool shot of The Trinity cast in shadow in front of a cosmic backdrop. Wonder Woman looks particularly good here, though sadly, it appears as if Batman is portrayed as the leader of this group, when we all know it should be Superman.
The story picks up right where it left off in the previous issue, and if you remember my last review, you’ll also remember that I couldn’t even talk about what went on, for fear of massive spoilers! The series took a turn for the extremely epic at the beginning of last issue, and Issue 7 really drives it home! This is the pulse pounding, action packed, cinematic conclusion, and I refuse to give you details! I refuse! Go buy this!
I mean, really, this is Avengers Endgame final battle stuff, (as much as it can be for a single comic issue), if you’ve followed the story up to this point, you won’t be disappointed as this is a perfect capper for the series. This could end up being my favorite story from this year.
I will say at one point in the book, Superman wears a Superman T-shirt. Like, one he probably bought at a store somewhere. Which I think is hilarious. Miguel Mendonca and Enrica Angiolini both really stick the landing on interior art duty as they have for every issue thus far, surely ensuring this series to become a cohesive and classic graphic novel someday.
Justice League Last Ride #7 accomplishes its task of concluding the miniseries in an epic and satisfying fashion. Few series in recent memory have been able to deliver this kind of tight, classic, non-convoluted story, which checks all the boxes of what makes these characters and this universe great.
