Just despair!


  1. Michael

    This comic perfectly sums up why I dropped Justice League at Number 7

  2. Pablo

    you dont get them, because you are not extreeemeeeeeeeeeeee

  3. James

    That strip is almost depressing in its perfection. That’s been the whole editorial mentality at DC for the last 5 years AT LEAST, and it’s horrible. The strip is hilarious, though.

  4. Travis

    Sorry, I think this strip kinda misses the mark as far as I am concerned. Seems as is it pokes more fun at “cape and cowl” books in general. I do not think its fair to compare the tactics used by the JLA against Darkseid to those they would use against Keymaster. You do not use suppression and subdue tactics against a friggin God who worships death.

    I recognize that there are a lot of people who dislike the general tone the New 52 has. I just do not see the reasoning for driving something into the dirt that people do not have any interest in buying in the first place. If all you want in your comic is a bunch of talking, go buy something wrote by Brian Bendis.

    Who said we want talking? We just want less eye-gouges and hand-slicing.

    travis aquaman killed just some weaklings parademons just to show off how cool he was

  7. Alegretto

    “We got this”

    And then Geoff Johns exploded.

    It’s not “Talking” that’s needed, it’s character depth. DC’s new characters seem to be a prototype based off of their pre-flashpoint personas. It’s almost like they made a list of each characters pivotal moments, the ones that made them who they are, and they stripped away most of the deeper and/or more complex moments.

  9. Travis

    Yes, that is exactly what they did. It is nice to read a story about a hero that isn’t weighed down by 50, 60, or 70 years worth of continuity. Not all of those big emotional stories have been wiped away though. People just dislike the fact that they do not know which ones did happen and which didn’t.

    “People just dislike the fact that they do not know which ones did happen and which didn’t.”

    No, that’s not what I hate about it. I don’t buy DC anymore for a great many other reasons.

  11. Travis

    Never said that was the only reason. Try to read the “whole” post. And the post before that.

  12. Decades-Long DC Fan

    NuDC is aimed at adolescents. It’s okay stuff if you’re about 14 years old — or have the maturity of a 14-year-old. And the tastes of a 14-year-old.

    Since I can no longer stomach 98 percent of their comics, I hope they go out of business. I would like to see those nice folks like Didio, Jim Lee, and Rob Liefield find another line of work, far away from comics.

  13. Wally East

    Travis, Darkseid worships nothing. (That’s not to say that Darkseid worships “nothing” but that there is nothing that Darkseid worships. English is tricky!)

  14. Travis

    Maybe worship is the wrong word. Maybe obsessive is more appropriate. I would say he is obsessive over “anti-life”.

  15. kaingerc

    i guess travis was confusing Darkseid with Thanos who does worship death(they are pretty similar aren’t they?!)

  16. Uncaringmachine

    Justice League is awesome. That is all.

  17. Uncaringmachine

    Oh, and so is this comic.

  18. David

    I’m personally glad to say that when I was 14 years old, I had better taste than the crap that’s happened to the post-Flashpoint DCU.

  19. Alex

    “Never said that was the only reason. Try to read the “whole” post. And the post before that.”

    I did. You are speaking of other people’s opinions that you don’t agree with or understand.

  20. Ciro

    Brandon and Sean love to trash Geoff Johns, it’s become routine by now…

  21. Iwritecomicsundermybed

    It’s also become warranted. Geoff Johns just wants to be remembered, regardless of what has to be done in order to achieve that. Think about how a #1 issue of superman or batman sells for. Now Johns is the guy who wrote the #1 issue of the justice league. Worth nothing now but think about the future.
