Ok, then, argue it.

I'm genuinely curious to hear your viewpoint. I haven't heard that argument before, so I'd like to explore it.


Also, please make my thread title make sense by not only presenting your argument, but also provide instructions on how to build a functioning car from coconut milk, dried grass, and bamboo. Thanks!

am I reading this that he feels that it was Alex Ross who caused JSoA to go downhill?

The Kingdom Come arc was horrible and went on too long. It shoehorned KC characters in to the story and forcing much loved characters off to the side. Vol 2 of JSA was nowhere near as good as Vol 1, and when Ross joined the creative aspect of the book it got much worse.

Yeah, this basically. Johns certainly played a part. JSA peaked before the end of the last volume. The run up to Infinite Crisis made that book less readable- maybe Johns attentions were elsewhere.

Ross' covers increased sales of JSA.

I don't like him much, but this argument doesn't make sense.

The beautiful covers were nullified by what he coplotted inside.

Yeah, if he would have been kept as a villain he would have been fine.

He's a symbolic statement character. He doesn't even really work as a villain.

The only time I've ever read JSA was that run, and i loved it. It did something right.
