> > Could you please let me know which issues Grant Morrison and Mark Waid wrote and what your opinion is of their runs.
> A quick reference check shows that Morrison wrote, not counting "spin-offs", JLA #1-17, 22-26, 28-31, 24, 36-41 and JLA SECRET FILES & ORIGINS #1. Mark Waid wrote JLA #18-21, 32-33, 43-58 and 60. I didn't read Waid's runs because I didn't care for his JLA: YEAR ONE limited series. I found Morrison's run boring and confusing.
Morrison's run was boring if you choose to read the Stock Market page of the newspaper while riding a roller coaster... Morrison's run totally ROCKED! Meltzer has turned the league into a club of chatty girls... Morrison's run was a thrill-ride from end-to-end, flat-out. Batman-centric? Who cares? Why not pump the Bat up and muscle the whole team up? The JLA/Justice League of America has been in a slow crawl for a few years now. I welcome someone (anyone!) who can take this franchise and make it the action/adventure powerhouse it is meant to be and not have the art stink up the joint (see current New Avengers for such stinky art combined with a decent story).
