I have to admit I am loosing interest in the Justice Society of America comics at the moment, as sad as it makes me to admit it, it's the truth.
It seems that Geoff John's has put this series on the back-burner while he gears up for The Blackest Night in the Green Lantern comics, because his writing efforts have recently begun to drop here and excel in Green Lantern. Which if you put two and two together, I think it's fairly safe to say we understand what's going on here.
Nevertheless, we have what we have, and what we have here is an old school issue of JSA. To me this feels like John's is just taking it easy, playing around with some old characters who he is familiar with. Black Adam, Billy Batson, they've not been up too much for a while, and John's is bringing them back here.
I'm finding it hard to get into because John's seems to taking it easy by chilling back and writing a classic JSA story with some of the older characters. It's got a real 70s vibe to it and whereas I usually am all over (so to say) those comics from the 70s, this one just seems weak and too fast paced.
The storyline is a bit hickeldy-pickeldy and wishy-washy, and the dialogue is strong, but same again, it's just hard to get into because this plot is so old school.
I'm sure If I had grown up reading DC comics around the time these characters were in their prime, then I'd appreciate it more.
But, alas, I don't.
