Default Justice League of America by Bryan Hitch

Who else enjoyed Bryan Hitch's JLA #1 the other week? Great jumping on point for new readers (like myself).

I didn't want to spoil myself by checking out the preview for JLA #2 that's out tomorrow, but here's the link :

Also this awesome variant by Francis Manapul :

If someone else was on art duty, I'd be all over this.

I'm all over this specifically for the art. Bought my issue a few weeks ago, haven't actually had the chance to read it yet, though.

Unfortunately, I just couldn't get into it. Not my style.

The first issue was all right. I'll probably stick with it through the first arc.

Yeah, first issue was decent and I'll probably just read the first arc.

I also agree with Arya on the art. Though, not the worst either. And that Manapul variant is gorgeous (except for WW).

Yeah, I'm not feeling the art at all, but I've seen worse.

This is my first JLA book--I found it exciting, intriguing, and all that. For now, I'll stick to it!

If anyone's read JLA #2, let us know how it is!

Finished #2. Took a second read to appreciate it. It's a lot of exposition--a lot of telling more than doing like #1, but it's a solid issue. Bit of the Rao stuff is repetitive but Aquaman and Batman were written really well in this and have my favorite lines of the issue.

Finally read the first issue last night. The writing was good and the art great... until the League arrives at the factory or whatever it was. Then the art felt rushed and the writing just boring (or outright bad in Batman's case).

Still not too crazy about the new "story over continuity" concept at DC. I mean, when does this take place relative to Darkseid War anyway, or does that even matter?

You're only ever going to be reading the stories at the same time once. Or decide in your head that all of these stories take place in the 5 years between Origin and The Villain's Journey.

I'm really, really happy about the story over continuity thing.

I really like it because you can dip in and out better, but I know I'll end up in a discussion at some point that massively confuses me about the timeline

I think it's an ok book. the writing is OK, I'll probably read the first arc. But speaking about the art, I think it's great. Come on, Bryan Hitch knows his way around. for every big action sequences, city destrcution, etc... he really knows how to do it perfectly. Personally this is what drove me to the book. Because I know it's going to be epic.
