JLA seems to be an immediate after-thought title. David Finch only stuck around for what THREE issues? And now Johns is leaving. And it already starred the C Listers.

Finch is overrated.

Agreed about Finch. I didn't think much of JLA when it was announced in the first place, even with the talent behind it, and the roster which was kind of interesting. JLA seemed like set up for Trinity War. It'll be interesting to see how long it sticks around for post Trinity War/Forever Evil.

Re: DC's New 52: Reviews and Discussion (Spoilers welcolme and likely)

So Trinity War finally started with this week's "Justice League #22" and I have to say that I felt it is off to a mediocre start at best. This was a pure set up issue. The art was fine, and we can start to see some of the elements that have built up over the past year or so come into play now...but I wasn't exactly wowed by the start of this. I don't have any comment regarding Superman's actions either.

Matt Kindt is writing JLA #8. Is Johns leaving or is this just a fill-in during the big event?
Probably a fill-in like Ostrander in Aquaman

Since Mahnke is joining him on JLA and we know he has t̶w̶o̶ four pet characters on JLA, he is staying for the longterm is my guess.

If Trinity War is going to be magic-heavy I probably won't love it, I've never been happy with the use of magic in comic books.

It's a pretty safe bet that it will be magic heavy. Especially the fact that Justice League Dark is apart of this crossover. Magic arguably is at the center of this event.

And DC has had a better track record of using magic than say Marvel, whose strength is mainly cosmic level space stuff.

And that the Pandora, Phantom Stranger and the new more mystical Question are at the heart of the story.

^ Exactly. Trinity War indeed. What I did find interesting about the issue that I didn't comment about in my above post...was the reveal of "The Outsider" who I believe was a character in the alternate Flashpoint reality...and of course the manipulation of Superman. I suspect that this will get better as we move along.

It's not really surprising since Johns is working his Flashpoint Captain Thunder concept and Element Woman into Justice League and JLA. The Outsider was always one of these concepts that seemed like he had further plans for.

"Superman Unchained #2" was pretty decent. Lex Luthor does indeed look a teeny bit like Grant Morrison. This mysterious "Superman" is interesting as well. I liked the Bruce guest appearance along with the partial splash page reveal of the Batcave. Jim Lee really loves doing those doesn't he?

I know Lee said it was his intent, but really, Grant Morrison already looks like Lex Luthor.

I'm digging Unchained so far.

I do wish there were fewer two page spreads, because, while pretty, they advance the story exactly one panel.
