  1. Ooh, that’s a blow. Snyder’s been mostly consistent with his vision for DC and while I was never 100% behind all his ideas (sorry, Lashaan, Metal failed to make a big impression on me ;)) I I thought I could always count on his solid performance. This doesn’t bode well… Excuse me if I go to mope in a secluded corner for a while 😉

  2. So DC is double dipping now, eh?

    I have to admit, I really don’t understand why it is so hard for them to publish omnibuses of crossovers. Or, if it isn’t hard, why they insist on doing things so bullheadedly. Are they trying to alienate their fan base?

    1. They’ve done this a couple of times in the past and I too don’t know why bother… it works wonderfully with sporadic readers who don’t know about all this. Which means, in other words, that more “collections” that have redundant issues help reach more people. And there’s no greater argument than one based on money. 😂

  3. I said it in my review somewhere, that if you are going to bling bling some Grand Master of This and That. He better impress. If not, I will shit on his work, just to prove a point of how it should not be done…. do not sell a comic based of of what the creators work previously looked like, proof read the script/comic/manual and then make an informed introduction…

  4. Wow, DC seem to have really dropped the ball in the content of this collection – an all too common occurrence it seems – not just from DC but Marvel as well. It’s certainly tricky when there’s a crossover thrown into the midst of the main JL Totality/Dark Universe arc and the contrast in creative styles obviously devalues this edition further.

    I actually read JL digitally in the individual issues and seem to recall liking the Legion of Doom stuff but I honestly think the double-ship publication is harming the title overall and not allowing enough time for the ideas to breathe and fully form as well as maintain visual consistency. I was honestly glad when DC announced they’ll be putting all of their books back on a monthly schedule from next year as it should improve creativity across the board, I think.

    Anyway, awesome analysis Lashaan – I’ve enjoyed this JL series for the most part but it still doesn’t come close to the Geoff Johns New 52 run which is the gold standard in my books.

    1. Exactly. I’m not a huge fan of it at all and find it unfortunate that people who don’t read individual issues have to pick up two different collections that have 90% of its content similar to one another. It’s one of the reasons why I collect my individual issues of the Batman/Detective Comics run.

      The change in schedule will surely have a significant effect on the overall quality of these stories indeed. I too liked the Legion of Doom stuff but when bundled with the Aquaman Drowned Earth arc, it just becomes too chaotic to really appreciate what’s going on. And then you got the artwork changing from an issue to the other… Hard to love anything in the end.

      Have you ever tried any of the other JL runs during the New 52 days? Like JLA and what not? Curious to know if it’s really that “bad” or just not worth our time.

      1. I did read Bryan Hitch’s JLA series (if that’s what you meant), it got if to a good start and I was fairly entertained for the most part – the trouble is that Hitch didn’t draw the final issue himself and to be honest pretty much ruined what could’ve been a solid ending. All in all there’s yet to be a modern JL run that matches Geoff Johns’, for me anyway.
