    ”It's never-ending. You've always known that. We've always known that. But lately, I can tell...that you feel it." Once, the Justice League was the most powerful team of superheroes in the universe. But tragedy has caused the League to go their separate ways, leaving the once-great team broken and disbanded. Now, on the eve of the universe's greatest murder trial, the League must protect the killer and reconcile their past before they are eradicated by some of their greatest villains. I usually lo ”It's never-ending. You've always known that. We've always known that. But lately, I can tell...that you feel it." Once, the Justice League was the most powerful team of superheroes in the universe. But tragedy has caused the League to go their separate ways, leaving the once-great team broken and disbanded. Now, on the eve of the universe's greatest murder trial, the League must protect the killer and reconcile their past before they are eradicated by some of their greatest villains. I usually love Chip Zdarsky, as he’s proven himself to be one of the more consistent writers nowadays with stuff like his runs on Daredevil, Invaders, and Fantastic Four: 2 in 1, as well as solid indie books like Stillwater, Newburn, and The White Trees. His Elseworlds miniseries’ have also usually been good, as I loved both Spider-Man: Life Story and Spider-Man: The Spider’s Shadow, so I was expecting to love this. Sadly, even though I usually love Elseworlds and Chip, this just didn’t do all that much for me. But just because I didn’t love this doesn’t mean it’s all bad either. I think my main gripe is this is just an okay JL story rather than the incredible one I thought Zdarsky would be able to tell. Maybe that's my fault for having expectations that were too high, but I found this to be nothing more than good. It's a seven-issue Elseworlds miniseries where everything kind of sucks and the Justice League members are a bit angsty and OOC at some points. Some of the Leaguers are dead, there’s a mysterious tragedy in the team's past, and some of the members have beef now because of this aforementioned tragedy. Sounds like every single Elseworlds ever. And a pretty par for the course one at that. I think that's why this didn't work as well as I thought it would, because everything in here is shit you’ve seen in millions of other Elseworlds titles. There are undeniably cool, individual moments sprinkled throughout, but they never came together as a complete package for me sadly. It just doesn’t do anything unique or all that interesting with this team. Even with all its flaws, this book thankfully isn’t a total dumpster fire and does have some redeeming qualities. Rife with a few solid characterizations, well-written character moments and interactions, and some awesome art, Last Ride thankfully has its moments of greatness even if it isn’t Zdarsky’s best. I also gotta give Chip a shoutout for using Wally West as the Flash in here, and writing him well at that. I really don't like Barry Allen, so it’s nice when people write the real Flash into the JL. I didn’t love how he wrote all the Leaguers honestly, especially Superman & Wonder Woman, but his Wally was great. A decent Justice League Elseworlds that didn’t do too much for me personally besides having amazing art, some fun action, and a great Wally portrayal. Even though I have picked on it, this book is honestly probably a great place for new readers to start. I’d 100% recommend it for fans of the Justice League, Elseworlds, or Chip Zdarsky, as well as newcomers to comics, as you’d probably find some enjoyment out of this. Even if I didn't adore it, it's still better than anything that has come out of the mainline Justice League title in the last couple of years. And even if the story isn’t your thing, the art is pretty damn awesome.

    Following the death of Martian Manhunter, the Justice League is no more. But when the Green Lantern Corps capture Lobo, whose recent most heinous crime is killing the New Gods, they turn to the scattered League for help in ensuring he makes it to trial. Batman’s plan? Hide out in the ruins of Apokolips… Like most people, I haven’t been reading the main Justice League title, so I’m only guessing but it feels like Last Ride is its own standalone thing, separate from the main Justice League stuff, Following the death of Martian Manhunter, the Justice League is no more. But when the Green Lantern Corps capture Lobo, whose recent most heinous crime is killing the New Gods, they turn to the scattered League for help in ensuring he makes it to trial. Batman’s plan? Hide out in the ruins of Apokolips… Like most people, I haven’t been reading the main Justice League title, so I’m only guessing but it feels like Last Ride is its own standalone thing, separate from the main Justice League stuff, and I think that’s a solid approach. That way you can do big things like kill off J’onn, etc. and focus on telling a self-contained story without worrying about stuff happening in other books. That said, for all Chip Zdarsky’s machinations and twists, Last Ride ends up being just another dumb “superheroes punching supervillains” comic, whose big changes at the end have a question mark over whether they’ll be lasting changes or not given its possible done-in-one nature. I liked Miguel Mendonca’s art - I’ve not encountered it before but he’s definitely a talented artist. Darick Robertson draws the covers, fittingly, given that Mendonca’s art is quite similar to Robertson’s, so readers drawn to the covers won’t be disappointed by the disparity between that and the interior art (which is often the case with DC/Marvel books). Zdarsky made the right choice letting you know from the jump that J’onn is dead because you’re then interested to keep reading to find out how exactly it all went down. The plot gets a little convoluted towards the end but it at least feels like Zdarsky did put some thought into constructing it. And it is suitably large scale enough for a Justice League outing, though, as I said before, it’s kinda boring in how it all eventually plays out. Not just the end but quite a bit of the middle too, where not all that much happens - just lots of characters sitting around nattering. Ultimately, Justice League: Last Ride is yet another forgettable outing for this supergroup. A murder mystery is an intriguing angle to take but Zdarsky doesn’t fully realise it enough before abandoning it and falling back into lazy genre tropes to close out the story. A visually appealing, but underwhelming, ride.

    THIS WAS EPIC! A thing happened in the past which led to the fall of the JL and in the present we have Hal requesting the team to protect Lobo and they go to Apokolips to hold him there but when cosmic threats like Brainiac, Mongul and others attack and the JL gets busy at multiple friends, how will they do it and also what happened in the past?

Plus Darkseid and the big fate of Hal Jordan! And in the final who will win and who will die and whatever happens of the league thereafter? Its an epic story sprawling multiple timelines and I love how Chip does it and slowly reveals the things and the twist is like really well done and one of my favorite moments and especially what the fate of Hal is, being a big fan of him! And the way he writes the Trinity is awesome and I like the final fight between Darkseid and JL and it has its different moments but the big thing is the evolution of Batman and its goofy for sure but really well done! A great story with a solid middle and ending and great art throughout, one of the best JL stories I have read!

In the last battle against Darkseid, the Justice League did what they always do they saved the day, the planet and quite possible the universe. However there were hard decisions made and sacrifices. The trust and cooperation between the members was shattered. Now Superman us burning himself out even more trying to save everyone, but when they are needed the Justice League will work together again and eventually put their differences aside. Well they better or they and everything and everyone the love or even know will be destroyed. This book has everything. "The never ending battle" Is now the war and will be fought on every front. Heroes and villains will rise and fall. The heroes will have to give everything and it still might not be enough. I really hope the ending means there is more to come.

    A really solid League story with excellent character moments. After a big moment in the Justice League's time together they feel disbanded as of late. However, now, they must deliver Lobo's crazy ass to the right people and keep him safe. This story bounces back and forth between that and the past of what happened to John. It's a character piece really, helping intensify these characters and their emotions. Resulting in a pretty fast paced and enjoyable storyline.

He also made Wally loveable and funny as well as even gave me a loltastic Lobo. The last issue feels a little too "big" in the sense of trying too much at once but overall it's very enjoyable story till then. A 4 out of 5.

Esse quadrinhos, então fica meio perdido, a esmo entre essas duas ideias/publicações. É um quadrinho ok, mas que não será muito relembrado anos além. Tanto Chip Zdarsky quanto Miguel Mendonça já realizaram melhores trabalhos. Também me parece preguiçoso que nesta história tenha uma embate entre Batman e Superman, que não tenha o Aquaman, que o Caçador de Marte esteja morto e, por fim, que seja Darkseid o inimigo e Apokolyps o cenário. Então achei bem nhé mesmo essa minissérie. Esperava bem mais dela.

    Zdarsky tends to be hit or miss for me and this was a definite miss. I haven't been keeping up with Justice League since somewhere in the middle of Snyder's run, and I can't tell if this is part of continuity or some one-off out of continuity. There isn't much new here: the league splits with a couple members disliking each other, a big threat shows up and they have to put aside their differences, yada yada.

A couple bits of dialogue were funny or were on point for the character and two or three twists to the story were about the only things memorable with the rest being boilerplate. The art was average at best. I found many panels were the proportions of people's bodies weren't correct: arms too big, leg too small compared to frame, etc. Covers, by a different artists, were also horrible: static and stiff poses, everyone with gritted teeth. Ugh. Really not worth the time.

    That was a damn fun and cool little elseworld story for the league. I was a little worried throughout the middle that it wouldn't have the payoff or ideas big enough to warrent beyond a 3 star average adventure, but a few twists towards the end helped. Some of it is dumb comic logic but I enjoyed this. Feels like a big deal for a out of continuity story, but the League is always about big heroics.

    An original story that feels like a DC universe event book. This was a bit of an odd read for me. It's not that the story was terrible by any stretch, it just wasn't anything special. Zdarsky definitely nails the character's voices and personalities in this series. The artwork and coloring were also really good. So why was this story just so meh? This may be to the incoherent nature of the DC comics' current continuity and the simple fact I'm simply tired of the JLA versus Darkseid stories.

This may be to the incoherent nature of the DC comics' current continuity and the simple fact I'm simply tired of the JLA versus Darkseid stories. Zdarksy could have chosen any number of villain threats like Brainiac, General Zod, Vandal Savage, or maybe even Sinestro and at least that would have something a bit more different. Also, it just gets a bit boring watching the league always take on universe-ending threats. With that said, the series was well crafted and the read was entertaining in some spurts. I did not like how Zdarsky made us jump from the past to the present because it made the pacing feel off. But despite a few shortcomings, it is amazing how well Chip understands the DC universe. I always saw him as more of a Marvel comics guy but he clearly loves these characters as well. I can't wait to see what he does on Batman as the main writer. The best part about this book was the relationship between the leaguers especially the trinity of Bruce, Diana, and Clark. I was a bit confused about whether or not this is meant to be an elseworld tale or are the DC editors going to fit this story into the continuity down the road. They really need to get their continuity fixed. It's funny I could also see this fitting at the back end of Scott Snyder's Justice League run. I could not get too excited about this story because within the last 10 years the JLA has faced similar threats whether it be Justice League: The Darkseid War Saga Omnibus, Dark Nights: Metal, Dark Nights: Death Metal, or Final Crisis. This concept is getting old. Chip Zdarsky is probably one of the best writers in the biz currently though. This book was worth a read just not anything special. Looking for some really great Zdarsky comics checkout: Marvel Two-In-One, Vol. 1: Fate of the Four, Marvel Two-In-One, Vol. 2: Next of Kin, Spectacular Spider-Man by Chip Zdarsky: Complete Series, Spider-Man: Life Story&Stillwater, Vol. 1: Rage, Rage.

    Some of my favorite comic stories occur when a creative team gets to tell a standalone adventure separate from mainline continuity. That’s effectively what Zdarsky does with this tight 7-issue arc, and it’s real good.

But that emotional core really is great, as Zdarsky develops a classically effective framing device for the League that makes it very easy to believe in the tension between them. The dialogue is where the story shines brightest—like I’ve seen other mention, the characters feel like they were pulled straight out of the animated series I grew up with, which definitely makes it easy to get invested in. The art is solid, too. I was worried going in, because I didn’t vibe with the cover art much at all, but Mendonca’s art and Angiolini’s colors are very, very good. I wouldn’t say I was particularly wowed, but they effortlessly capture the physical characteristics of the heroes and the coloring was a consistent standout. This isn’t going to go down as an all-time Justice League story, but if you’re looking for a tight, exciting read with a slightly edgier vibe than the classic Bruce Timm animated series, this will absolutely scratch that itch.

Vemos a la liga en futuro distópico en el cual uno de ellos ha muerto tras una cruenta batalla que casi acaba con la liga y el mundo. Todos se recriminan lo ocurrido, especialmente Superman a Batman y viceversa. Es notable cómo Zdarsky aborda los defectos de ambos cuando están en la liga: un Batman que lo sabe todo, y un Superman que quiere salvarlo todo. La figura de Wonder Woman es fundamental, pues es ella la que pone los paños fríos y uno tiene la sensación de que la verdadera lider es ella. Hay que darle el mérito a Zdarsky y al gran dibujo de Miguel Mendoza (que a ratos recuerda a Clay Mann), por, sobre todo, mostrar a un Batman dubitativo, no frágil, pero sí afectado por los hechos. En el último cuarto la historia decae debido a que la liga entra en una batalla, de la cual uno sabe que acabará victoriosa, pero todo lo ocurrido antes de eso es puro drama psicológico, en un estilo que yo no leía desde, probablemente, Identity Crisis. Muy notable la aparición de Lobo, como el detonante de la historia, aunque luego se revele lo contrario. La mejor historia de la liga desde Darkseid War de G. Johns, que es del 2016.

Zdarsky's interpretation of this Justice League lineup feels very lean and straight to the point as he has even stated in a few interviews promoting this book that factors from the lineup to the tone of the book were heavily inspired by Justice League Unlimited, a story Zdarsky considers to contain one of the most definitive versions of the Justice League. In all honesty though, I would recommend any reader going into this book not to expect anything too dark and serious as at the end of the day this story is simply a relatively fun Justice League adventure from thrilling scale to a barrage of action from issue to issue. And with that in mind, I simply had a lot of fun reading this.

    3,8 estrelas Isso me surpreendeu um pouco. Sinceramente não dava nada por isto. Apesar de ser uma história simples, o roteirista traz algumas coisas e interações entre os personagens que são bem interessantes, como aquela cena com todos em torno da fogueira de noite ou toda a interação e desintedimento entre Batman e Superman. Um livro bom, pra ler quando não tem mais nada pra fazer ou ler.

    I liked how stripped down it was in the first few issues. I liked the way the Superman/Batman drama was drawn out and I liked the idea of Lobo going to court. But then it got confusing with all the Darkseid and green lantern stuff at the end and it lost me. 3.5.

    superman getting incredibly butthurt because Martian Manhunter SPOILERS willingly chooses to sacrifice himself to save everything is a really silly reason to break up the Justice League for years. there's some good stuff in here though and at least you actually feel like the villains are a threat. superman getting incredibly butthurt because Martian Manhunter SPOILERS willingly chooses to sacrifice himself to save everything is a really silly reason to break up the Justice League for years. there's some good stuff in here though and at least you actually feel like the villains are a threat.
