This issue was basically an intro to some of the characters and what they're doing currently. It's simply a hunch, but I'm guessing they're seeking justice. Hal proves he can stand up to the entire JLA. (Kudos to James Robinson or Cascioli for having Plastic Man in there) Then him and Ollie leave. Then comes appearances by Ray Palmer, Mikaal, and Congorilla, who I'm starting to like. I don't know why, I just think he seems cool. I was loving that last page. And then Robinson has some write ups and talks about stuff. He bascially confirms Ray's going to be in the JLA when he starts writing it because he said he'd still be writing him during JLA. So that's cool. As for the art, I actually enjoyed it. I didn't think I would. His best parts were when he did the full body shots of the characters IMO. It gave him a chance to shine. Overall, a pretty solid issue. I liked it, but wanted more. We'll see

Story- 7
Art- 8
Overall- 8 (For Ray)

An Oklahomian. That's almost as bad as being from Mississippi.

I liked it. I'm looking forward to seeing what Robinson does with this crazy team.

$3.99 for a intro issue? fuck that shit

It's $3.99 for the whole series.

I liked this, the art was absolutely amazing, and the character focus was strong, even Hal wasn't totally obnoxious.

There were some of James Robinson's more annoying tics on display, but overall this was what the Justice League should be like.

I picked this up on a whim. Thank goodness I didn't waste $4 on this or I would seriously think I was robbed by DC. Talk about a cluster fuck of a book. Honestly, ooooh this is DC with it's heroes going grim dark. Like we didn't see this already with Batman and the Outsiders, JLElite, and the Winnick Outsiders. Though this time Hal means it by going all JUSTICE on supervillains.


However the thing that bugs me the most is Hal's argument. It's the same frigging argument he had when he became Parallax in the first place. And what he says is a total slap in the face to the current JL. I'm just surprised nobody said what needed to be said after Hal's whole big speech.

You know if Bruce where here he be all, "I heard this bs before Hal. The last time you wiped out the GLC." Yeah I know it's Bat Dickery but now I can see WHY Batman had all those fucking plans to fuck up his friends because gee whiz where at the scenerio with them taking a more pro active stance and doing things he would never approve of. As for Ollie's "Oh boy." God that utterly was pathetic and really another person who should be all, "Um Hal tone down the um Parallax-like thoughts. I really don't want to shoot another arrow into your chest." But nope that's forgot.

The second thing I hated of this issue was Ray Palmer's use in it. Ray Palmer isn't Jack Bauer. Ray Palmer can never be Jack Bauer. Other than one tiny panel of him complimenting the Choi Atom. That's about all I enjoyed of the exchange. The moment he pulled a move straight out of Jean Loring's playbook (going inside Moth's head for a poke) just filled me with bile. As if that wasn't tacky enough we get two more added tacky moments of "JUSTICE!"

About the only positive is Promtheus is up to something, said exchange above with the two Atoms, and Killer Moth in his old costume. Though quite honestly if there is a ultra lame beat up on Prometheus this time I give up with the character. I'm already annoyed of the retcon with him in the one shot that was released earlier this year. I just got a feeling that it'll be wasted. I really pity anyone who bought this because it really was a waste of some good talent. I can see why this series is not a mini and not an ongoing. It's truly awful.



Story- 1 (just for the moment between Rays)
Art- 8
Overall- 3

This actually came out? I looked for it up and down at my shop and it's not like it's an indy book that would have already sold out or not have been ordered in the first place. :?

Diamond could have short shipped or hell, you know, the people there at the shop, behind the counter, they are there to help you, you could have asked.

It's well established that your store is suck on an epic level. I assume that you have to provide "special" favors to the LCS guy to get your Transformers fix.

Well, I already dropped a crazy amount of money this week. I wasn't actually excited to try dropping more. :wink:

(yes, most of the stuff I bought this week were actually last week's comics I had the set aside for me. I'm an addict and I know it)
