'Justice League: No Justice #4' does a commendable job of wrapping up this gem of a series. And this superstar creative team also sets the stage for what is to come from the DC universe in the near future. on the drawing front Francis Manapul is and along with Hi-Fi he handles the massive stage of story elegantly while skillfully giving this huge cast enough screen-time with his unique style.

This issue starts from where the last one left our heroes in their desperate struggle to return to Earth after the Omega Titans as they traveled to Earth to feed on it after destroying the planet Colu. All of the people aiming to save Earth must work together against the Titans while Brianiacs son Vril Dox tries to hasten the Titans for his revenge as he deems the League responsible for destruction of his home planet.

Despite the resolution of the issue being a bit too easy for our heroes (but totally understandable, cause this series does only have four issues), once again the writers deliver some interesting character dynamic and a sense of grandeur to end this amazing mini-series on a positive note. The stage is set up very nicely for the upcoming multiple Justice league ongoing series' and the focus is rightly put on big players for those comics here.

Manapul and Hi-Fi do an excellent job once again. I really will miss these big splash pages detailing the ongoing drama of a big scale struggle. And the facial expression is so good, highlighting the despair and the joy of the respite at the end, no matter however temporary it might turn out to be. And coloring adds an edge of ultra-reality at times for the action and drama. I really hope to see this team of artists work together in the future.

Although the ride was a bit rocky in the middle issues, 'No Justice' delivers a very satisfying finish that is surely going to make readers very much interested in the future for the DC universe as a whole.

From me, this issue gets 4.5 out of 5 stars.
