Hi there:

I love the Justice League and most of its incarnations but I have to say this new series is just not well written. It is so Red Tornado-centered and the story is just not gelling together for me.

Anyone else enjoy the series? Sorry I just don't.

I do like the new Justice Society series, but Meltzer, I'm sorry just is not doing it for me on this series.

Love the new series, and I'd suggest to just be patient. The first arc will be about Reddy,no doubt, but I'd hazard the story will shift dramatically in arc #2. I'm a big Reddy fan honestly, and he's the reason I've come aboard the book. I definitely don't want to read the adventures of Red Tornado and his guest stars either, but I know it won't be a permanent focus. Just be patient.

The series started to finally pick up in #5. Despite its lazyiness ..... sticking with the series.

I'm new to the JLA and have minimal knowledge about their past. That being said, I'm enjoying the new series. I've liked it so far. Also, I'm getting to know/meet new characters that I've never really had a chance to and getting back in touch with some old favorites.

I also liked JSA #1!

thanks,
boham

Although I'll agree that the series started slow, I've found the last two issues to be pure gold. I'm loving the Red story, and I really haven't enjoyed a JL incarnation as much as this one since the early-80s.

I am LOVING the series so far!

If you aren't a fan or knowledgeable of the JLA during the late 70's or throughout the 80's, I could see how this has been a slow start for you. As for me, I love the Red Tornado storyline and the flashback panels from the old Reddy and Amazo stories! I would say be patient through this opening arc, and I bet this series begins to EXPLODE with great characterization, action and tons of twists and turns. Meltzer's subtle hints of upcoming sub-plots and knowledege of DC continuity have me salivating like a true fan-boy! Haha.

Kudos to Meltzer and the AWESOME art team of Benes and Hope. Amazing work!

It is well written. You just don't like what it's writing about.

I think the writing's a little odd, too. But I chalk it up to Meltzer having to create a piece that is charged with being compelling and introducing 12 members and their group dynamics in the first arc. That's a hell of an undertaking.
Even if it is moving a little slowly, his characterizations for all these Silver Age, 80s, new Millenium characters are spot on. Meltzer, not unlike Geoff Johns, is gifted with a deft pen for characterization, a knack for making us care about obscure characters, and turning his faves into ours. With so much respect for the genre, he's gonna do good things.
But the first arc is so hard. Especially with a cast this big. 12 characters before you involve the supporting cast (Traya, Ollie) and the villains? That's extreme. I think he's doing well for the situation.
