Justice League Vol 6

14 Jul

The post Forever Evil world continued through volume 6 of Geoff John’s Justice League.  Now, I must confess, I have been a fan of Geoff’s since his Star Spangled Kid days.  I have also been a huge fan of the Justice League since watching Superfriends.  But for some reason, I have really been struggling through his Justice League series.  Some might suggest that it is due to the non-stop event status that has dominated the title, but honestly that doesn’t bother me.  I enjoy events as much, if not more, than the typical fan.  I buy comics because I want events!  But for some reasons, the Justice League title hasn’t worked for me.

But, I will say, that volume six: Injustice League was a lot of fun!  Lex in the Justice League is an idea that screams potential.  The new version of Amazo introduced could be great too, especially if they keep his mad on for Luthor even when Lex is out of the League.  The plague story was timely too as it was released in single issue form last year during the height of the Ebola scare.  And few creators can revitalize old concepts like the Doom Patrol like Geoff can.

The volume is far from perfect however.  The new Power Ring hasn’t really done much since being introduced.  In fact, she sat her second story (half the book) unconscious.  And if she ends up anything like Geoff’s last new Lantern, it will be a total waste.  Also, the volume goes through several artists, although all of the artists are talented.  I could definitely see why it might get on some people’s nerves.

The next volume promises to be huge, as the Darkseid War begins.  So perhaps this has been just the start to a renewed Geoff and a new start for the Justice League.  It’s going to be an amazing summer!
