Justice League #1

So after months and months of hype, we finally got our first real look at DC’s reboot this week with Justice League #1.

So how was it? Well that depends on how you’re looking at it.

See our sister blog for another review.

  1. Dude, that was harsh! But I can't really disagree too much as I left the book on the shelf.

    The Superman costume really busted the deal for me. I suppose I'll need to get used to it quickly if I'm going to enjoy the new DC (and Marvel) LEGOS next year! That's probably a pretty shallow reason for not picking up a title, I know. Same reason I stayed away from NOVA.

    The pacing was totally reminiscent of Hush to me too. Hush was great though and maybe this is just the signature Jim Lee type of book. That's not a bad thing either when you like a particular creator. If it does take six issues for the whole team to form as you predict it really will be the "same old same old".

    They may be right about not trading the books immediately with the book stores struggling so much and it defeats the purpose of pushing the floppies. (Listen to the Ron Frenz panel recording on my last post [If you can find it...I forget what day... ] for some interesting discussion on DCNu and the comics industry). I wonder what the digital sales will be? That's the real objective. For us it may seem familiar, but the goal is to reach a whole new untapped audience. For them, this is the first Jim Lee comic they've ever seen.

    I haven't read the issue yet and I'm still on the fence on whether or not I'll be getting this title. I'll probably wait until issue 2 comes out. I'm getting so many books right now, I've got to seriously prioritize.

    If you want to read a book that's exciting and fresh this week. Pick up Planet of the Apes #5 -- it's only a buck! And the trade is only $10.

    Oh and I really dislike the Justice League logo!
