    He's written a pretty good Hal in the stuff I've read. If he wrote a Hal centered story I'd be interested in it.

    And the fact that Ollie and Dinah are already on the League is just gravy on top.
    Bendis should have a blast writing those four.

    In a way this makes sense if everything is happening at the same time, right now there are only 2 active Green Lanterns, Hal and Jo so if the Justice League is going to have one, it has to be one of those two.

    Man, this made me wish I was more into Bendis on JL than I am .

    Amen Frontier, A JLA/LSH crossover mini, Hal on the JLA things I always am down for however it's Bendis...I don't recognize his Legion, can't really pass any judgement on his JLA since I haven't read a page of it but it appeared to be just a vehicle to hype (put over) his Naomi character. However Hal back in the JLA will get warrant a look.

    Same. Bendis has been phoning it in for a while now.

    Funny, I did'nt get that vibe from Justice. I felt it was just one those classic timeless stories.

    A lot of the plot choices seemed too specifically aimed at criticizing specific stuff Ross doesn't like for my tastes. I think it holds up as a pretty gripping all-hands-on-deck JLA story, but it's difficult for me to separate the art from the artist at times, simply because I'm aware of Ross's very pointed opinions about stuff.

    That said, Kingdom Come is essentially the same thing, with Ross taking aim at the worst excesses of the Image anti-heroes of the 90s, but I think it's done a little more elegantly there, mostly because Waid is a much better writer than Krueger is.

    That's interesting.

    For what's its worth, I really enjoyed Justice. The TPB that I own is usually my go to whenever I want to showcase DC to my friends.

    lol, I'm dimly aware of Ross' opinions beyond some stuff that makes it way into BTS stuff included in trades but I'm aware he has no time for Kyle.

    It's just below The New Frontier for me for JL/DC Universe showcase stories.

    Oh, it's a great story for new or casual readers. Particularly with the one-two punch of this and Kingdom Come.

    New Frontier, along with All Star Superman, have been the best gateway drugs for getting me hooking people into comics.
