Justice League Of America: The Ray Rebirth #1 was released today and I’m here to give you the latest review from Thathashtagshow.com.  For the first time, I hand out a 10 out of 10.

“SPINNING OUT OF THE PAGES OF JUSTICE LEAGUE VS. SUICIDE SQUAD! Locked indoors, raised in the dark and told his medical condition could be fatal to himself and anyone he meets, Ray Terrill is dangerous. A freak. Broken. Or is he…? Witness the amazing power of realizing your true self and stepping into the light in this moving rebirth of a long-lost hero for a new generation.”

The story starts out with a poor child with a disease that kept locked away from the world.  Ray Terrill wants nothing more than a normal life.  Hell, he’s willing to settle for a friend.  But, after what happened to his first friend Ray’s mother dares not to tempt fate and risk the life of another child.  Ray’s mother is hiding something from him.  She says he inherited his love for heroes from his father as well as his disease.

Steve Orlando gives us a heart-wrenching story of loneliness and excitement as our main character is pushed to escape his personal prison; even if it means death.

Stephen Byrne’s art drives the story forward with visualizations that make you feel what the characters are feeling.  At the same time, he captures explosive moments of adventure, mystery, and action.  See why this book is now one of my favorites.

Find out what it takes to pull yourself back from the brink of insanity.  Find strength as Ray finds strength from nothing more but the characters on his T.V.  If you’re looking for a solid one-shot book, look no further.  Find out why The Ray will be an excellent addition to the Justice League of America.
