With the relaunch of DC coming in September, there are some titles that I’m angry that they are canceling and restarting, but Justice Society is not one of them. I like the JSA. But I hate the current JSA. And I don’t use that word lightly. I’m an old comics vet and I know that creative teams come and go. But it’s been a long time since I’ve come across one that I want gone so badly.

I’m not happy that the JSA will not be part of the relaunch but I’m glad that there won’t be any more of the Guggenheim penned JSA.

Each issue has been bad and each has gotten worse.

Mr. Terrific has been losing his smarts. They make comments like “can’t count past twenty” yet he’s still able to track down Richard Lusk? How is that possible? He’s able to figure out that he can use a DVD to relearn? And the reason he was targeted to lose his mind? Horrible. Bad. Stupid. One of the worst plots I’ve ever read. This is what all of the previous stuff was leading up to?

There are so many plot holes, cheesy dialogue, and just bad storytelling in the recent JSA. I’ll miss the JSA but I’m glad this run is coming to an end.

Derenick’s art is hit or miss. Sometimes it’s good and sometimes it’s bad. This is one of the bad times.

I have a hard time believing someone at DC thought this made a good story.
