...for the last few years, I've seen Chap raving about Justice League: Generation Lost. Then today, I just saw that Jack Burton gave it the thumbs-up, as well.
I've ignored such talk, because damn it, Judd Winick has burned me too many times. And make no mistake: I know what Judd Winick is. When he's good, he's very, very good. When he isn't...ugh. As in, he makes me want to throw shit. That's always been my frustration with Winick: His talent dictates that he should be on the short list of best writers EVER. That guy can write. He can. That's why it pisses me off so bad when he mails it in. Nobody with his talent should be as bad as he has been at times.
But finally...I've been broken. I'm so desperate for anything resembling a good Justice League story, something where I can even pretend that, one day, I might one day read a good Justice League set of stories again, I'm going to buy this series and read every single one of them.
DC has driven me to this. This is what DC has driven me to: DCNu Justice League is so damn awful, I'm going to go purchase a maxi-series that is no longer in continuity written by a writer who terrifies me when he's off, based on the recommendations of people I've "met" on the internet. Think about that for a second. Think about how bad the current book must be, for me to do what I'm about to do.
Chap/Jack: You'd better be right. Because I'm starving for something JL-related that is even remotely comprehensible.
*Sniff, sniff* "Damn it, Diana...If I'd known they would trade us in for a JT Krul-written Captain Atom and "The Savage Hawkman," I'd have let Superboy-Prime destroy all reality.""Superman flies and is really strong...what the fuck else do you need to know?!"
