I am tempted to give this four stars only because of the closing line by Batman. Hilarious. Also, I found the numerous pop culture references amusing. :)

As a big fan of Claremont/Byrne's XMEN, Iron Fist, Spider-man Marvel Team up collaborations, i came into this with a lifetime of their work in my brain, most of it life-changing. Their Uncanny Xmen run is STILL everything to me, since i happened on it by accident as a child in the late 1970s. After recent rereads, It still resonates for me. So you can see i definetly wanted to love wasnt quite as bad as i feared, but not much beyond average fare really. Claremont still over-wri ...more

I'll keep it short and sweet: this "graphic novel" sucked.

Ever read a comic book, and suddenly been embarrassed because you've suddenly realized that the writer(s) obviously never got the memo (released to the industry after Watchmen and The Dark Knight Returns) that comic books are supposed to actually be intelligent, and that they're now written for adults and not for particularly dim-witted teens? Ever suddenly felt ashamed and amazed that you were actually READING a piece of sophomoric tra

This volume collects JLA # 94–99 which featured an arc by the reunited comics team of Chris Claremont and John Byrne (most famous for their joint run on the X-Men in the late 70s). Now, let me start by saying that if you are looking for a modern day, deconstructive (or otherwise) take on the superhero genre, move along, this one is probably not for you. However, if you are open to read a very classic and old school superhero tale, this might just be the thing the doctor ordered. It is a very goo ...more

There was all kinds of excitement when Byrne/ Clarmont reteamed to do this story, then a bit of 'That' it?" from the fanboy population.

Which means a lot of people missed out on a good, old school style JLA story. Which I was thrilled to get, because the regular JLA series was crap at the time this came out. There's a big menace, lots of action and everybody on the team gets to do something.

There are a few clunky bits, as it feels like they had a list of rules to follow from editorial and let's f

Claremont e Byrne si riuniscono per questa saga in sei parti che ha come scopo il semplice riportare in pista la Doom Patrol originale. Lo fanno tramite la JLA e lo scontro con un vampiro letteralmente senza cuore.
A livello di disegni Byrne, chinato da Ordway, è veramnete molto godibile e certamente all'altezza degli anni '80. La storia architettata da Claremont sta in piedi e si legge bene, ma è l'avversario e il modo di scrivere ad essere un poco fuori tempo.
Da un lato, se la si confronta alle

Other than a bit too much of the old style, "Getting weaker ... must .. use ... random ... super power ... too ... kick ... bad ... guys ... ass ... quick."

Or "Oh my, the building is falling on those people, need to hurry up and finish this sentence so I can rush to their aid". This was pretty cool.

Everytime I read JLA it always makes me think of how iconic the big three (ww, batman, superman) are and it makes me wonder if there will ever be new "icons" added. It's kinda like bands, will any of

This book is a prime example of a once great writer who refuses to evolve. Claremont may have been fantastic in the 80's (his X-Men will always be classic) but 20 years later he still uses Silver Age styled storytelling which comes off hokey and stillborn. "He's so strong! And fast! He's dodging all my blows!" really Chris? We couldn't see that for ourselves in the art. Let the art speak, you nitwit. Let it tell it's part of the story. This isn't 1977 anymore. We don't need everything spelled ou ...more

This is easily the worst out of all the JLA book I've read. I didn't even like Vol. 3: Rock of Ages but would rather read that again than this boring and predictable entry.

Basically the JLA fight a vampire. That's about it.

This one was a good story and a nice chance to introduce the Doom Patrol. The combination of Claremont and Byrne was quite good. The inks by Ordway are quite beautiful, until you see the original pencils.

A mish-mosh story, but with enough exposition to establish the unfamiliar and new characters so that it is still enjoyable for a casual fan.
