    This feels like it's turning into the DC version of the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie.

    Blackfire SHOULD know about negotiating since she's the current ruler of Tamaran.

    Blackfire is seriously into Jessica Cruz, haha, I would love it if this actually happened and Jessica and Blackfire hook up on this trip:

    God, how would Kory react to that when they free her from Darkseid's brainwashing?

    I usually like Abnett and i get he is focusing on Jessica and a rag-tag group of characters. But at the same time, he's also neglecting Cyborg, Starfire and Azrael. The idea of Vic doubting his own leadership capabilities in order to prop up Anxiety Lantern is a bit lame.
    Imagine being proud to have negative traits. I can’t relate.

    Cyborg getting shafted left a really bad taste in my mouth.Then should gain the only Titans characters who aren't shafted right now are Raven, Beast Boy and Terra(unless you consider an upcoming Dark Multiverse story to be shafting).

    That's an AU story, so yeah, it doesn't count as not shafting them. Fact is, Gar and Raven are in limbo because Titans got cancelled, and that book was wrecked by the Bat office putting a bullet in Dick's noggin. Hopefully when Glass's Teen Titans run ends, the replacement series will include them - and age them up. Ric said he lost almost two decades of memories... if so, he's pushing 30, and that means Gar and Raven should definitely also be in their late 20s, and not teenagers.

    Justice League Dark has been consistantly great from the start. Justice League Odyssey start is a lot rockier. it's not bad at all, but there was a feeling that the series would die really quickly. Then Dan Abnett took over, Will Conrad became the de facto main artists and while the team changed-which has justifiably ruffled some feathers - the book has become a lot tighter and stronger.

    Which isn't surprising, we know cosmic is Abnett's wheelhouse, as he did Guardians of the Galaxy and Nova for Marvel a decade ago.

    I am really loving this book now. I know some people are miffed because Cyborg and Starfire were sidelined under Apocalypse's control, but seriously Jessica Cruz (omega powered and very angry), Blackfire, Dex-Starr, Orion, Hax! I can't believe how much I am liking the new cast now. Lol, Just two girls (Jessica and Blackfire) on a road trip with their cat (Dex-Starr) and one of their friends (Orion) and his friend (Hax)!

    Blackfire and Jessica as best friends and allies, that's just so funny!

    Apocalypse? You mean Darkseid, lol. Not only is Apocalypse Marvel, he's actually joined the X-Men side team Excalibur!

    Sorry about that. I am all over the X-Men so I talk about Apocalypse all the time (cause he's awesome these days!!)!

    It's true that both Apocalypse and Darkseid are undergoing quite the revival currently. I mean, just look at the February cover... I'm honestly salivating, thinking about when I'll get my hands on this one !

    Agreed. I assumed JLO was dead in the water after losing its original writer/artist so early, but it's gotten far better.

    And JLD has indeed been pretty great -- and I haven't liked any other iteration of JLD in the past. But something about this run as clicked.
