  1. wow

  2. Got no problem with your writing bitches but 3 for the art? Don’t blame Jim Lee if Batman is saying stupid things, he looked excellent doing it. I don’t think Lee is the greatest artist to ever hit the earth, but maybe when the next artist comes on board you’ll find out how much of his art you were taking for granted. 3?!

    • I’m not a big fan of Jim Lee’s style in general, and while the art was fine, it wasn’t his very best. There were so many lines. Also, I think it’s colored with a little to bold a pallet, the pannel where green lantern was BRIGHT green and his background was BRIGHT red bothered and there were 6,000 little lines bothered me. All of my quibbles said, I’m not saying the art is bad. On iFanboy 3 means good when you rate it, and the art was just that, good. It worked. It did it’s job. It didn’t distract me. It just didn’t take my breath away.

  3. I feel The Flash is getting some good “screen time” in this arc, especially in this issue.

    GL and Bats are featured in almost every issue, and the rest ARE under-used.

    The focus on Cyborg is a bit confusing to me, too. Almost like he is being wedged into the Big Seven and it doesn’t feel totally organic to me.

    So far JL has been a roller coaster of a comic, and this issue is, to me, the lowest of the ride so far.

    • He gets some good screen time, but it’s never to do anything that develops the plot. Though, I’m not sure if any of them does anything to develop the plot…

  4. @serabird: I agree with everything you said about this issue. I was thinking the same things while I read it. Why would Batman drop his secret identity like that? For the sake of unity within a group? And to Green Lantern? Hal’s been a cocky, hot-headed jerk for pretty much the whole run so far, so what makes him special enough for Batman to trust him like that? And whiloe we’re at it, why is Batman trusting ANY of these people with his identity so early in his career? So many questions that lead to a story just not making logical sense.

    Also, Jim Lee’s art looked rushed this issue. Could it have been him, or his 3 inkers?
