    Oof...that Romita Jr. art .

    It's weird to see characters treating the Hall of Justice like a big deal when it's only been around in-universe for...what, maybe a year from their perspectives? Even accounting for 5G and the extended timeline, maybe?

    Bendis is even using messy continuity as a plot point .

    Yeah, that art is AWFUL.

    And yes, all of the Wonder Comics characters (Naomi, Wonder Twins and Miguel and Summer from Dial H for Hero) have joined the team. Naomi joined as soon as the team got back to the main universe, the others joined so soon after that that this must be set that same day.

    I've only seen the previews but it's actually looking good to me. Although I'm not enthused about the YJ crossover if the best they have is Naomi and recognizing Tim.

    Interesting, and yeah, art is what it is at this point. Just have to keep suffering, since based on solicits, romita is staying even after this arc.

    It's funny... I think the close-up shots aren't bad. I'd even say they're good. It's the wide shots I can't stand (like the first panel).

    Maybe needs a different inker, or something?

    I actually like that art in the preview. If there’s one thing Romita Jr does well it’s conveying action.

    Which makes it weird that he works with Bendis so often. Janson seems to mirror reliability and loyalty, but I've always wished that Romita stuck to Dan Green instead.

    This book's art is going to sink it. Along with Bendis's leviathan nonsense.

    Honestly I don’t hate the Leviathan idea when he’s actually doing stuff, like teaming up with Luthor and the Legion of Doom to attack Superman. That seems interesting, and honestly some of the build up in action comics to Leviathan was interesting to me...it’s when we actually got to Leviathan and Bendis spinned his wheels and wasted six issues on a mystery that I’ll be honest made no sense nor made me understand his motivation or any real set up for Shaw to be the bad guy plus I didn’t know Shaw even existed so I had to go look him up because I only knew Kate Spencer Manhunter. Heck after the event I still don’t really know what Shaw’s end goal is here besides he’s mad at Superman and all the dc heroes who got in his way.

    So yeah decent idea, terrible execution is what I’d say about Leviathan. I think if someone besides Bendis was writing it that it would be neat, even in something like Suicide Squad or whatever.
