I’ve just come on here to see if I was the only one thinking that this version of the Justice League isn't all that good !
Well I think something is wrong with the new DC 52, it may appeal to all the tens of thousands of virgin readers that DC expects to be flooding to the comic book stores, riding off the backs of the films, but I feel to the older readers these stories are disenfranchising them. It felt when Dan Didio was at the helm that readers didn’t want the Silver Age to return, and that’s fair enough, but what’s happened now in the JLA is a new team that’s nearly Silver Age, but appealing to very few.
All the Justice Leagues history is no more, readers can’t look up old issues that current story lines prefers to (I used to like that when I first started reading comics) because there aren't any references to look up not with the clock back being turned back to zero.
The nearly Big Seven maybe the Justice League on this Earth but one can't help thinking that DC have lost a golden opportunity when they wrongly introduced Cyborg, put in solely for a modern day black token, and not the Martian Manhunter.
The problem for a team that’s 99% Silver Age is for readers to disconnect from all the original stories that involved these characters.
I’ve just read issues # 1 - 7, well looked at the pictures mainly because there was little writing in some of the issues, and realised that this going to be the first time that I will be dropping the Justice league in many years, I feel it’s just that bad.
With the exceptions of Hawkman, Aquaman, and the Green Lantern books the whole DC line isn't appealing to me.
Oh, and the 'Holding the Line' slogan at $2.99, along with the dropped letters pages that came about for all of 3 months shows how little integrity DC have, they aren't all that serious about their future or their past by the looks of things, as long as they occasionally beat Marvel a couple of times a year in sales; So I don't feel all that bad about slagging off their so called Flag-Ship title.
One last point.
There was an interesting feature in issue # 6, with Pandora and the Phantom Stranger, which makes me believe that this whole 52 line is just a temporary thing anyway......
