I guess I'll never learn it - Wangerman
but I tell you, reading Mainstream Superhero Comic Books is a waste of time and money these days. Sadly, wirh just few exceptions.
First of all, I really did enjoy Brad Metlzer's Green Arrow story and his „Identity Crisis“. But his run on the Justice League turns out to be anything but satisfying. I'm already bying Trade Paperbacks, because I like reading the big picutre as a whole, instead of reading a story divided into monthly portions. In the introduction of the book, Patton Oswald talks about this. But the big picture just sucks. “The Lightning Saga” is a bout what? A confusing puzzle about guys from the futuristic Legion of Superheroes, being involved in a JLA/JSA-Crossover, which in the end just brings back Wally West. That's all? What kind of story is that supposed to be? The whole thing is nothing more than a confusing, multi-layered crossover with lots of side-notes an a huge bunch of characters without actual character moments, but no actual story. It isn't any fun.
Plus: What kind of sense does it make, to put the issue #0, the prologue to the first half of his run, as an epolouge at the end of the second half?
Oh boy, this has been one of my last DC books for a while.
p.s.: Geoff Johns sucks, so does the ugly cover by Alex Ross.
