Just read JLA# 12 and I am still really enjoying the book....wasn't so keen in issue #11 but am glad to see ed benes back this month....

couple of things...

1. Good to see Aquaman and Jon'zz back again but would have been even better if Zatanna had joined them and they had interacted with the rest of the team....

2. Roy and Kendra? Wow! Am glad they hooked up...did kendra have a child? I didn't know.....

3. Would a child visit Cheshire in jail with a quiver of arrows on her back? this is a woman who once escaped from jail using just a plastic butter knife.

4. A potential romance with Vixen and Geo-Force? i'd like to see her back with the bronze tiger...

5. Deathstroke - has a lot to pay for....i think its time the league took him out once and for all....

I guess it's just me, but I've found the latest run of JLA to be one of the worst ever. Brad Meltzer's writing is convoluted and tedious. He spends issue after issue, as in the latest, trying to justify his line-up, telling us why they're all so great. I think this is one of the weakest teams- Geo? Vixen? - unless the mysterious trio of Superman, Wonderwoman, and Batman join in. I'm all for sacrificing action for characterization, but this has neither. Nothing really happens, except that Roy is a chip off the old block. And I resent having Alex Ross's Kingdom Come World pushed on us. Give me back Arsenal. The most difficult to digest is the throw back to the Image Era with Ed Benes's scratchy lined, balloon busted babes. Grow up! Okay, I got that off my chest. If you like it, well then enjoy. For me, I'm canceling the book until a new team takes over.
