Subj: Why was Waid's JLA run so short?
Posted: Thu Jul 03, 2014 at 01:07:22 am EDT (Viewed 12 times)

For my money, Mark Waid was nearly as important in the hugeness of the JLA of the 90s as Grant Morrison.

Waid rebooted the team preceeding Morrison with "Midsummer's nightmare."

He did about 6 STELLAR fill-in issues. And his run started off with a bang with HEAVENS LADDER and TOWER OF BABEL. Then Hitch came onboard and we got great issues with QUEEN OF FABLES and the DUEL IDENTITIES arc. The followup arc against the White Martians (art by M. Miller) was solid also.

Then. . .poof! Waid no more. And Joe Kelly started his interminable run follwed by the hapless runs of O'Neil, Byrne/Claremont, Austen, and Busiek. Shark Jump in my book. I dropped the title.

So. . .why? You'd think Waid wanted and could've stayed on the title much longer. What happened? Why couldn't Hitch stick around too?
