You should be proud.
Also, since I came in here I'll submit a quick review.
Justice League: Generation Lost #6 is a solid time travel story that shows some insight into Captain Atom, as well as a brief history of his origin and shows what the stakes are if Max isn't stopped. Works well as a jumping on point to the series, while also moving things.............. well maybe not forward but at least moved things along and added to the motivations. Probably the first issue that didn't move the story forward, but after 5 really good issues slowing things down a little bit isn't a problem at all. In fact, I'd be happy to see some more spotlights like this on specific characters if they are this well done.
The art was solid.
This book, for whatever reason, has a great balance of both Winnick's and Giffen's strengths, while not having too much of their weaknesses, as if they are bringing the best out of each other and limiting their negative tendencies. They make for a really good team so far, and if the next 20 issues can keep the quality of these first 6, I'd be happy to see them continue to collaborate on other books. Then again, I've never been a Winnick hater (although he's done some shitty books at times) and Giffen has always been a guy that's very good collaborating with others on writing duties.
Story : 7
Art : 7
Overall : 8 if you've been reading all along and a 7 this is your introduction to the story.
Thanks for the info on O'Malley.
