Sweep Second Hand

I don't know about the rest of posters on this board, but I am getting really tired of all these spin off series coming out of JSA when the main title is so conveluted. I have intentionally avoided Power Girl and Magog and nothing I am reading on the boards is convencing me that was a bad move. I will buy the 80 page special coming out this month since it looks like an extention of the main title. I am debating about the new All Stars comic. DC is going to have to give me a really good reason to add this to my pull. I also expect the main boo to do some shoring up and start having decent stories after the clean house or it's days in my pull may be numbered too. I love the Justice Society and I love Golden Age and legacy characters but this title is really floundering at the moment.

My take on the state of the Golden Age characters right now is that it seems JSA is still top of the heap (although its differant from Johns take).

I have followed Willingham's work since the Elementals (for those who don't know was an old Comico book) and I believe he wrote some old D&D modules as well. It was alot of magic based stuff which imo is a good thing since there are a strong mystic based heroes (origin wise) Spectre,Dr Fate, Thunderbolt,etc)

That said I have not read Fables and can't really talk on that.

I also have not followed Power Girl and the other spin off series but a series I would read would be a Johhny or Jackeem Thunderbolt series. (as I really liked that character). A mini series would be cool.

I am also enjoying JSA right now so we will see where this all goes.

good reading to you all

You should buy at least an issue or two to give them a try. Magog's not too interesting to me, but I've enjoyed some of the Power Girl issues. The latter series is uneven, but overall, I'd give it a B.

The new All-Stars issue that just came out today was above average. The pacing could have been better, but it was an entertaining read. Stargirl and Power Girl have a nice quiet moment together between the action sequences.

I did pick up the new All Stars title but I am still avoiding Power Girl and Magog. I can tell these titles are not worthwhile for me from what I have read on the boards. I have never been a huge fan of Power Girl and I dislike Magog so it's not hard to do. I would much rather see interesting characters like Sand and JJ Thunder get page time than these characters.
