I did not buy Cry For Justice, and from what I have seen on sites like Scans Daily I am glad I did not. It was a poorly executed concept and...









Them crippling Roy and killing his daughter, then turning Green Arrow into a murderer were all horrible creative choices.

I decided to purchase JLA again after a long hiatus because it promised a fresh start, a new beginning.

All I have gotten, though, is James Robinson immersing me in the Cry For Justice fallout. We get a new line up, then he proceeds to remove it. It was a bait and switch. Were you buying it because Green Lantern was in it? Psych! Are you a Teen Titans fan, 'cause we have several Titans as Leaguers. Fooled you, two have left.

I don't mind new characters; if a Star Man from the seventies and Congorilla are new members, fine. Donna Troy standing for Wonder Woman and Dick for the original Batman, all well and good. But don't sell me one thing and then screw me over, especially when I am constantly bombarded with references to things I did not buy.

This is one of the reasons I quit buying McDuffie's Justice League, because early on they were using JLA to sell Salvation Run, among other things. Justice League was not always like this. Years ago you could read the comic without having to buy the rest of the DC library to figure out what was going on.

So no thanks, Robinson, Didio. I refuse to support a comic that is still trying to sell me a world where Lian is dead, Roy is dismembered and Green Arrow is a murderer. Screw you.

I enjoy the current stories, but also agree that what they have done could have been done better , and that making Green Arrow a murderer was wrong.
As I have said in another post, wouldn't it be better if the JLA always had an open line-up, with all former members to choose from? That way individual story lines and JLA lines would be easier to follow and could be more separated. Superman can't turn up, doesn't matter. He can come back next week. What do you think?
