Hi

Just read JLA 6 and I actually enjoyed it. I'm not saying it was amazing because it wasn't. I do agree the story has taken far, far too long but the beautiful art has helped keep me happy. I also agree there has been way to many splash pages....

I'm not overly happy about the choice of characters. I would have prefered to see Zatanna and Elongated Man on the final roster. Zee because I like her alot and I think after Identity Crisis she needs so fresh material and also Ralph because I always prefered him to Plastic man and I think aafter Sue's murder he needs to be with his friends..I know 52 has other idea's about this....

Supes, Diana, Batman, Dinal and Hal I am in complete agreement with. Vixen I am happy to see back...she impressed me on Suicide Squad..Hawkgirl I aint so sure about - think I prefer her in JSA. Black Lightning and Geo Force and Red Arrow the jury's still out on...I think they all deserve to graduate and will watch to see how they are handled...

Upcomming Stories I'd like to see are :

1. With 2 ex-Outsiders on the team I'd like to see halo return and join up. I think Gaby is a unique character with loads of potential...

2. I'd like to see the original Cadre Return....

3. I'd like to see the League throwdown against some villian who can reanimate some of the deceiced members ie Steel Vibe, Crimson Fow, Ice, silver sorceress....

4. I'd love to see a new secret society with one of each of the leaguers foes in it....what about...Silver Banshee, Nocturna, Silver Swan, Star Sapphire, Roulette, plus a couple of others..

5. A new satalite headquarters wth teleport tubes...

Okay issue. I agree there were many beautiful panels that helped the story reading. Surprised the conclusion warranted a final issue/chapter in the arc. Anyways here's some impromptu page by page (possibly meritless)points...

+Everyone has there own color for narration squares
+Mimicked movements with Red&Amazo
+Grundy as tough BADass
+Portrayal of Vixen (where's a good DC ish with comparing powers to Buddy?)
-Goddess reference (is this a first?)
-Vixen tracker (forgot when that was done and how it works)
-Markovia coast (thought it an inland country)
-Disjunctioned(word?) Geo&butler (he's disoriented on way to bed, offered a unsolicited/unspecified prescription, requests immediate transport?)
+Roy out of his leauge(pun intended) and his play by play
-Roy thinking of heroes by real names in battle (seems it should opposite)
-Batman in close quarters (when GL should be able to saw both)
+How tough and deadly Amazo is shown to be
+JLA seem ready for him too
+Red's human feelings of pain are poignant
-Grundy is tough BADass but can't kill Red even though he can rip off arm
-Canary Cry focus on antenna (how is BL not affected at least)
+BL focus on antenna (he has control over his power, free of doubt gained in Outsiders recently)
+Amazo's slowprocessed narration though jarring, makes sense and works
-"then your eyesight" (didnt follow that)
-JLA DONT seem ready for him in hindsight considering more effective strategies that couldve been employed
+Amazo's powers strategies, the JLA should've been toast
-Roy still standing, waiting, doing not much
+appearance of Hawkgirl and her deathwish
+Kathy vs Amazo moment
-Bats carrying 3 (?!)
+Peregrine dive strategy
-Triceratops (extinct animals now/too? Or maybe cuz/if they live in Skartaris?)
-Nth metal absorption (thought it wouldnt be possible for some reason)
-guantlet for Red (didnt see where it came from and why)
+Grundy's fear of dying now
+ripping the arm
-eating the arm (not necessary since he hasnt finished the job and probably doesnt need to eat as he doesnt have a heart to keep pumping)
+Kathy's visible agony was realistic
+Red's dying efforts, and tornado stats, very heroic
-"no I was supposed to be the one..." (this guy appears in this story out of nowhere)
+Red's dying request inevitable and on cue
-Zatanna there in the field doing mystic triage
-Phantom Stranger in the field doing mystic triage (suprised he'd be there)
+nice last page
-as mentioned, not the final chapter (seemed like could be)
+VERY nice art

Overall a balanced issue - seemed equal share of pluses and minuses.
