From Geek Dad: Justice League Odyssey #18 continues the book’s transformation into an unpredictable underdog space adventure, but also reminds us that the bigger plots that kicked this series off are still lurking in the background.
Jessica Cruz, Orion, and new ally Gamma Knife are going up against a ship full of enemies while their reluctant ally Eskaton wants to eat the possessed Cyborg. One of my favorite parts of this series remains how Jessica has gained enough confidence in herself that she can now wrangle cosmic horrors if needed. Meanwhile, Blackfire, Hax, and Dex-Starr are dealing with the unpredictable Epoch, a time master who is unstuck in time and keeps wildly veering between different time periods in both appearance and dialogue. He knows events that’ll happen to the characters in the future, but his mind is split – a problem that Dex-Starr attempts to resolve by spitting fire on him mid-time-stroke.
