Brad Meltzer and Ed Benes's Justice League of America #10, the conclusion of the JLA-JLA-Legion crossover. Turns out the resurrection of Lightning Lad was a red herring -- they were after someone else. I guess it was ok -- it was his predecessor who Batman thought they were bringing back though, right?
Art problems do not help this messy issue: at the bottom of pages two and three close-ups of Power Girl and Sensor Girl look too much alike to tell apart. I first thought Power Girl was Sensor Girl with her mask off since they are both blonds wearing red and white with gold cape-holder medallions; this was not helped by the fact that Power Girl on page three has much shorter hair than Power Girl on page two. Also Karate Kid's costume fixes itself magically on the same page at the end of the issue. And is it supposed to be obscure who Karate Kid is talking to when he says "I ducked?" What is going on in the final panel? Weren't there some villains getting a woman at a hospital a few issues back -- who were they and what where they about? This thing lost me.
Still, this had a lot of superhero crazy. I did not hate it, but I am glad Metzler's run is ending soon. I would stop getting it if it had no end in sight.
HUGE news week: Frank Miller is adapting Raymond Chandler for film, Martha Washington will be back for a one shot, Skrulls are everywhere (Marvel is building its next event), we get hints of the next X-Men event (I will get all the Bachalo parts), Mark Waid is coming back to the Flash in an issue that has the WORST cover I have seen in a while, the suit for the Batman film is revealed, and here is some smart stuff: Terry Moore, of Strangers in Paradise, is taking over Spiderman Loves Mary Jane. I wish he was drawing as well as writing. AND Travis Charest, my favorite artist next to Quitely and Bachalo, is coming back after a 7 years absence.
