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? \(fear\)

Are Darkseid and AM finally about to rumble, and is bats now back on Jla team?
