It was delayed? I don't remember changing Justice from date to date on my COMICS list.

It was delayed by one week,but that was probably because of JLA #1 being pushed back a week.

I loved the animated series,so this series is just totally doing it for me.

Every issue since #4 has been build-up,but that's understandable for a 12 issue maxi series.There's just enough action as well.

Good stuff I can't praise enough.

This comic is so damn boring. Pretty, but boring. 12 issues is too f***ing long. Four issues could have covered it.

Another pretty good issue. I agree with The Leaguer, to an extent, this series could kind of be wrapped up a little sooner than 12 issues in my opinion.

But this issue sort of got the ball rolling a little bit better. The heroes got themselves back on their feet and now it's just a matter of kicking some villain ass.

And, of course, the artwork is magnificent.

Captain Marvel slowing down the Flash by flying into him and saying the magic word was awesome.

This has to be in the top 5 when it comes to DC's top superhero books.

I effing love this series.Hawkman was pretty badass in this one too.The entire chase sequence was beautiful to look at as well.

I'm always a sucker for Doom Patrol appearances ...and seeing the heroes at the fortress of solitude (with the giant key on the front lawn) made me have a geeky squeel of childish delight

Why was the Toyman called Winslow Schott in the bio at the back of the book? The incarnation of the Toyman shown in this series is Jack Nimble, not Schott.

The fact that they've been keeping up with, and even expanding on, the pre-crisis biographies very well so far (the Parasite being Max instead of Rudy, Hawkman and Metallo's bios, etc), I thought they'd do the same for the Toyman. I guess that a slip-up was inevitable.

I love Alex Ross' art but his story telling still bugs me. It's hard to tell what's going on half the time. For instance what happened to Jimmy and Lois at the Daily Planet? Other than that I'm loving this series. I can't wait to see the League confront Lex and Grodd.

That was pretty obvious.Bizarro was outside the DP (the red cape fluttering outside the window) waiting to kidnap them.That page was pretty self explanatory,the heroes' loved ones being stalked by villains who were waiting to take them.

I would like to ask a Alex Ross-related question: for those who have read THE WORLD' GREATEST SUPERHEROES (SUPERMAN: PEACE ON EARTH, BATMAN: WAR ON CRIME, SHAZAM! POWER OF HOPE, WONDER WOMAN: SPIRIT OF TRUTH, JLA: SECRET ORIGINS & JLA: LIBERTY AND JUSTICE), what era/decade do you think was used to represent each character (Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Captain Marvel, and the JLA)?

They were all comparatively modern versions of the characters, as I recall. Batman was gritty, Wonder Woman was an ambassador, Superman was a revered "savior" figure, and Captain Marvel was...actually, I never got to read Cap's story.

i wouldn't mind seeing the legion of doom reappear in the new JLA series as recurring villians
i think it would make sense post crisis
even the secret society as a more visible treat against them

You can see '30s in the Superman story, I believe '70s for Wonder Woman, Captain Marvel I feel is '80s since of the child abuse in the story, and pure Silver Age for the JLA. But modern versions of '30s, '70s and Silver Age. However, I don't know about Batman. I want to say '40s but thats not it, it looks like '70s but Wonder Woman covers that (its not wrong for more than one character to reprsent the same era, is it?) but somethign tells me '60s, the '60s in his comics not that show.

What do you think?

Wasn't obvious to me. I understood the Grundy stalking and Black Adam, but if you hadn't pointed out the red cape, I wouldn't have noticed it.

JUSTICE #8

REVIEW:
The Flash forces Captain Cold to head to the artic where he is then captured and taken insdie the Fortress where Batman interrogates him. Still stuck in god knows where, Hal uses the ring to recreate past moments of his life until Phantom Stranger appears and gives him the Lantern to recharge before they head back. Batman tells the rest of the League about the villians and their nightmares. While a disguised Joker enters one of the new cities created by the villians, the villians themselves continue kidnapping those connected to the heroes like Supergirl and Batgirl. Wonder Woman tells Captain Marvel that she is dying because of Cheetah and while Plastic Man talks to Elongated Man discuss they weren't attacked and Aquaman, after hearing his son was kidnapped as well, wanting revenge against Brainiac, the Doom Patrol begin to wonder if the nightmares are real as a ship is now above earth...

For the eighth time: the art is superb. CONGRATS!

With this issue, developments are made. The JLA, thanks to Batman, now know why the villians are doing this and the nightmare. Which the Doom Patrol starts to wonder if its true if the villians are taken down. Hal Jordan is finally out of...god knowns what and now the heroes (JLA, Metal Men, the Doom Patrol) are together.

The last development was the appearence of more characters in a Alex Ross story that only appeared in his art like merchindise: along with the Doom Patrol and Metal Men that appeared in this comic, this issue shows the Teen Titans (featuring the founding members that were the original heroes in their debut of Dick Grayson/Robin, Donna Troy/Wonder Girl, Speedy, & Aqualad (he already appeared in #7)) which were only seen in Ross form on a collector's plate, Captain Marvel, Jr & Lady Marvel (also appeared already), and finally Supergirl and Batgirl.

Overall, issue 8 gives us more exciting moments and the first steps toward the comic's climax. We have more characters that we wanted to see and finally did in Ross' form, new threats and more shocking moments. With the heroes now together, I can't wait for more.

RATING: 8.5/10

This is starting to pick up. The heroes have now all gathered together. Should be interesting seeing them fight the Teen Titans.

Apparently Alex Ross has no idea how to characterize a character in any way other than crappy.
