Forever Evil #5 Review
Geoff Johns has really started to give some great developments over the last couple of issues, and the series is definitely starting to show promise for further progression. What I loved most about Johns' writing in this particular issue was how he handled the interaction between Lex Luthor and Batman, with the attempted coexistence being extremely entertaining. There is also some amazing action and suspenseful build-up throughout, all of which adds to the overall quality. Added to that the defining notion that even on the side of good, evil still rules and the series' concept just becomes better and better.
David Finch's artwork throughout this series has been nothing short of wonderful, and it continues to amaze me yet again. The terrific layouts along with the dynamic action make this a breathtaking issue, which is both exhilarating and intense. Finch also adds a lot of depth and tone through the facial expressions, with his art helping to increase the tension during the Batman/Luthor interaction. Added to this the brilliant inks by Richard Friend and outstanding colours from Sonia Oback and the final finish to this issue is simply astonishing.
