Brad Meltzer and Shane Davis's Justice League of America #8. Meltzer has a character do a trick with a chessboard I did not know about even though I played competitive chess for years. That was kinda cool. We also have a weird allusion to the Legion of Superheroes being "seven soldiers," "scattered" across time; I do not know what to do with that, especially since Seven Soldier scribe Grant Morrison handled the last major Justice League launch. I doubt anything will come of it, but ... strange. This is the first part of the JLA/JSA team up and I think it is going to get on my nerves. I am going to need to find a website that can give me some footnotes on who everyone is; Johns and Meltzer are going ga-ga with the nostalgia, and I hate nostalgia. But I will stick with it, if only because I enjoyed JLA 1-6 (though not 7) and know Meltzer's run wraps up with 13.
Mike Carey and Chris Bachalo's X-Men #198. I get it for the art. I am never disappointed.
In comics news Ed Norton is the new Bruce Banner.
Also, Julie Tamor (The Lion King) is slated to direct SPIDERMAN: THE MUSICAL with Bono and the Edge doing the songs. Anytime now, someone is welcome to yell April Fool's. Anytime. Please -- God -- someone yell April's Fools.
