Or... it was just boring.
I usually love most things Morrisoi, but except for the first five issues and the "It" two-parter, I didn't care much for his JLA run. Too much of a "breath-taking concept of the day" approach. Nothing made me care for the characters, or for what happened. Neither "Rock of Ages" or "World War III" made any sense.
And Howard Porter is the worst regular JLA artist of all time, IMO.
Waid's run was pretty uneventful as well. But he DID write one of my fave JLA stories ever: The "Heaven's Ladder" graphic novel.
If you want to read great superteam stories by Morrison, try The Invisibles or Doom Patrol instead.
