    I'm already interested in Cyborg and want to see him unleash. I'm not very familiar with Starfire and this book seems like a good place to see her get some quality focus. I expect some other guests to pop in and out though.

    I was just thinking about that too, there's definitely hints that these three characters could possibly represent a new trinity, which would be a big deal since it's effecting the the cosmic universe at large.

    Team books these days seem to struggle with just six characters.

    It seems like writers are much better off with just smaller, condensed, teams.

    Question:

    At the beginning of the issue Jessica mentions she was assigned to patrol the "Ghost Sector" by the Guardians on Oa.
    By my understanding Oa was destroyed and Mogo is currently the Corps/Guardians headquarters.
    Am I missing something? Is this a goof? What's going on?!?

    I really dug this issue. They got a fun collection of characters and a great hook. I hope the creative rejiggering is worth losing Sejic on art because he is the best thing about the book so far.

    Could that be something to do with Green Lanterns 56 and 57?

    Well, it was probably only a matter of time before Oa came back.

    Those 2 issues haven't come out yet so if Oa comes back into play we don't know that yet, also if you take into account JLO #1 has been delayed by several months due to art then when this written Oa wasn't in the picture at all.
    In the current GL arc up to #55 Oa was never mentioned, just that Mogo has been infiltrated, under attack and was going through a severe weather storm.
    Is Oa still functional in current continuity at all?

    This gives some hints as it were to plot changes

    Also, apparently Sejic is unfortunately only doing #1-2 interiors followed by just cover work on the book

    DC always ruining a good things. Literally the one title I was hyped for and waiting for. The art is so on point and now after two issues thats going to be gone. Good lord DC.

    If this Bleeding cool leak is true as it appears to be from the images. I like some elements and dislike others. I believe the initially story flows much better with what Snyder was doing and is a little less random than what we ultimately got. I like that the team banded together and ultimately prevailed against a threat. I love that there were real stakes and this seemed like a good old action packed first issue that would hook you in. I love that they are FINALLY using the Darkseid and Cyborg connection.

    I do not like Cyborg getting ripped a part and shredded, it happens far too much. I've ranted about this for several occasions about how it belittles the character. Even tho the art looks great and he assuringly gets a great feats out of it. DC's gone to this well far too many times and it does Cyborg no favors.

    Also seeing Cyborg and Starfire together. I didn't realize how much I missed that friendship.


    Anyway DC gets my hopes up only to dash them ... business as usual. I guess I'll enjoy this as long as it lasts. (Also JLO team if you're reading this, how much would it cost me to get the original issue? I'll pay for the commission if needed.)

    I post via my phone a lot, therefore I make the occasional grammatical error. Not an excuse just forewarning you. Feel free to call me out I won't mind.

    This sounded a little badass. Yeah yeah sure, Cyborg got ripped apart. But he reformed and attacked Despero, Akira-style with tentacles? Sounds fun. Which is something fans always whine about not being.

    Well, Sejic is on the forum, but I don't think he can actually disclose the art, D.C. probably is not too hot on the first two original issues of JLO getting out, one way or another. And frankly, gazing over that BC article, I fail to see why it had to be redrawn and changed so drastically.

    Well I preferred what we got in issue #1. The scope ended up being grander than what a bunch of flashbacks would have given us.

    I still wish Sejic could’ve stayed on, but it doesn’t dampen my enthusiasm at all.

    The idea of DC scrapping a few issues because they possibly confirmed Cyborg was a Titan in the current continuity sounds ridiculous...but the kind of ridiculous I've come to expect with DC .

    A shame to have to lose Sejic over this.

    Oh the horror of calling a character famous for being a Titan a Titan!
