    Looking up at the review I've just written I can see that I've displayed a little too much hostility, and while I don't want to sound like I'm backpedalling, or making an attempt to sit of both sides of the fence, I will say that in the end this is simply a comic book. I guess most of my displeasure with this issue is that one of the primary reasons I read comics is for escapist fun, and if there is one DC title that I believe should be all about entertaining its audience it's the JLA. I don't want to be preached at, or pandered to in my comics, and frankly Joe Kelly really needs to get down off his soap box. I like Joe Kelly, and I think that he's a highly talented writer, but lately he seems to be using the JLA as a forum to express his viewpoints, and he's delivering these idea in such a heavy-handed manner that even the ideas that I would agree with him on I'm finding extremely off-putting.

    I've been defending JLA over at the SBC message boards for the better part of the summer, but now even I must admit that the recent issues have not been very good. In fact, no words can describe how angry I was when I finished this issue. Joe Kelly can't seem to write about anything but politics these days, and if I wanted that I'd go to CNN and Fox News.

The poor writing and inconsistent art have me close to dropping the book even though the upcoming trials of J'onn J'onnz should be interesting. Read Full Review
