Reply Subj: Brian Hitch's Justice League - What's the Consensus?

I half read issue #2 and... it was okay, it flowed well and there was nothing about it that was terrible as such, and yet... It hasn't excited me.
I think one problem is the plot being a thin rehash of Grant Morrison's classic opening arc for his and Howard Porter's JLA, with its godlike beings come to earth to solve all our problems and a link to one of the League's membership etc. At its heart Brian Hitch's Justice League is an unoriginal affair then. But while the DC promotional machine promises us "wide-screen" Hitch's artwork is rather the opposite to his usual vista's and panorama shots, tight panel arrangement and generally very subdued. I can't criticise him too much as despite the lack of much that is original and truly fresh it IS a competent production. But.. it isn't exciting me all that much either....
What is the consensus around the web then?
Agreed. This was my simultaneous post...
Justice League of America 002 (2015)
Looks ain't everything - but don't hurt.
Premiere wasn't that good either.
Remind me what was the aftermath POV of Earth towards Superman: World of New Krypton series? How would this 'invasion' of Krytonian culture/strangers play out dramatically different - will Earth repeat the sins of the past so soon? Beacause RAO is only one (easier to target) being, like revealed Kal, early fear is unlikely? Or maybe that maxi series Event is no longer canon after the (alleged) CONVERGENCE whitewash of history? Why bother appreciating any parallels and characterization connection if DC won't bother footnoting it?
Natch. At least this time he calls in Vic and not try to do it all himself.
Agreed, THAT was an excellent cliffhanger grabber.
Not really IMO. JL United was better this week. More praise here though:
I miss Dad and Dan.
