The new series of JSA started off really well but issue 10 will be my last.

The art I hate. Its certainly not of the caliber i would expect from one of DC's flagship books.

The massive rotating cast is already becomming a problem and with plans to introduce even more characters I have lost interest.

At the moment DC seams to be doing everything in their power to reverse the changes made by the original Crisis.

I absolutly hated Kingdom Come. Completely. It was suppossed to be an elseworlds tale. Why not leave it at that?

Yet another Superman. The idea of Crisis was to make Clark unique. Now we have x amount of superpeople running about.

The personal stories have been crap. No indepth on jess and ricks relationship. No aftermath of infinite crisis revelations for Kara. No aftermath at the horrific slaughter of the original freedom fighters. no aftermath from alan scott or todd re jades death.

And while we are at it, why are we killing off good decent well developed characters like Jade and Fury and phantom lady to replace them with people like Maxine Hunkel. What is her costume all about.

Really this is poor poor stuff.. The book on average takes me less than 5 mins to read. Its not a patch on JLA, New Avengers or X-men.

Any thoughts?

Nothing to say, really, except the following: If you're not enjoying a title, you're doing the right thing by dropping it. Don't support anything out of just mere "loyalty" if you're not satisfied by it. Comics have become an expensive hobby and you should only spend your money on those that really meet your expectations for entertainment.
You're good on your way. I dropped all DC and Marvel titles at this point with the only exception of Green Lantern which I will keep reading till issue #25, which features the end of the Sinestro Corps saga. After that, I'll keep only reading all those Indy titles I already subscribed. I'm having a blast with these!
