HUGE Justice Society of America fan here.
So, why am I not reading it?
Can't really lie, neither JSofA or JSA All-Stars writers Bill Willingham or Matt Sturges are clicking with me. There's still time for them to wow me but my wallet just isn't large enough anymore for that particular grace to happen.
I've collected JSA in nearly its every modern incarnation from All-Star Squadron to the Strazewski/Parobeck Justice Society of America to the Geoff Johns era JSA and after years of waiting and wanting, The JSofA is franchised out in order to give us The All-Stars and...
It all feels a bit *meh.*
I like my JSA on the same page, literally and figuratively. I don't particulary like having my favorite characters not interacting because of a generational/attitudinal rift.
I'm all for storytelling but in my mind, certain characters are there to do certain things. The JSA is there to show others how to work through things and get the job done. The division that brought about the JSA All-Stars' creation just doesn't feel very "JSA."
It's simple, really. Really simple.
I like my Stargirl fighting alongside Wildcat, not against.
That's just how I like to see the JSA.
Not to raise the red flag of fanboy entitlement but in dividing them, DC lost a chance at getting into my wallet, twice.
It's cool. I know I'll be back, eventually.
Are there any books out there you really want to read but for one reason or another, you can't bring yourself to do it?
