    On another note, the SPECTACULAR line of new comic book readers and enthusiast were so long, they were completely NO-EXISTANT!!! The local retailer i go to said only one customer had come in and wanted to buy all 52 #1's. He also explained about the "promotional" oppotunities DC was trying to sell, but sounded more like they wanted him to buy a "pig-n-poke"!

I have yet to get it (hopefully tomorrow!) but there does seem to be a general agreement it doesn't live up to the promise of being something that will hook new readers, I'm a big big fan of his yet I have my concerns about Geoff Johns writing in recent years, I think he's been spread far too thin as both chief writer and executive and the strain is showing in both his plotting and his work. But your comment on the appeal of a whopping 52 books to customers is a key issue I have - how can 52 newly launching books ever hope to attract readers?! 52 books newly launched to choose from, in this economy? With Christmas season not too far around the corner....?

Nontheless I do hope this Justice League will at least be readable on its own terms, it's going to take awhile for it to settle down obviously but all things considered if the writing isn't oustandingly good it could be in trouble longterm. Even Jim Lee art can't make up for problems in the plotting and story execution, not for me anyway.
