I’m adding DC Nation #0 to mine…
DC Nation #0 - the Justice League story
I figure I may as well read No Justice since I’m going to be waiting for Justice League Dark anyway.
It was a little jarring to see the League working with murderers like Lobo and Deathstroke, and without them trying to kill anybody (yet).
And after reading a few Bronze Age comics with Zatanna, her ‘backwards speech’ being written wrong stuck out like a sore thumb.
Otherwise, it was a decent setup.
Justice League: No Justice #1
Well… it feels like an event. So it’s got that going for it.
I was reminded of both Contest of Champions (1982) and Annihilation while reading this.
What could be worse than Galactus? How about four Galactus?
And I’m probably the only person in the world that doesn’t care for Manapul’s art.
Zatanna only speaks once: “Nepo rood”, which technically could be either “Open door” or “Door open”. So I’ll let that pass.
Etrigan was done well.
It’s also nice to see the Titans used in an event and not just as cannon fodder.
The story, itself, is okay. It has a few rough spots where it feels a bit contrived, but all summer popcorn flicks are like that.
Best to just sit back and let it go.
It did have a really good cliffhanger.
Who is the most unexpected character in this series so far?
What do you think about Task Force XI?
It’s up there with ‘My name is One-Face!’ for me.
XI? How is it pronounced? ‘X I’? ‘Eleven’? "psy’?
And it’s amazing that none of those psychics saw this coming…
What energy is Earth (If you know the answer DON’T SAY IT) Entropy, Wisdom, Mystery, or Wonder?
I’ll say Wonder because ‘wonders’ has been used to refer to superheroes and Earth has more than its share.
Finally, did Brainiac get a good death?
Well… I’m glad he’s not a favorite of mine. And they can always make a new one.
But the cliffhanger did do a good job.
I give it a 3 out of 5 right now.
It’s decent. Not making me get super-excited, but this is the event we got.
And I’m looking forward to JLDark.
