Now this is what I love about 80s comics -- possibly my favorite period for superheroes. There's this wonderful rhythm to superhero stories from this time, where things were flowing into each other more than they had before, but there were still no thoughts toward collecting them in a trade later, so everything fits together but also moves around fits and starts: you get a goofy issue where everyone hangs around, a one-off story, then suddenly a dark multi-parter... then maybe a light multi-part ...more
New readers just won't be able to see Maxwell Lord's discovery that he can influence the thoughts and actions of others without getting a chill. I honestly can't tell if it was meant to be read that way, or if I'm bringing too much baggage from later events to the book.

(This review covers Vol. 4, Vol. 5, and Vol. 6.)

I was only halfway through the JLI trades, and had considered getting rid of them. Now I'm glad I kept them around! The mix of humor and heroism here is the perfect antidote to the grimdark of DC's current titles. The JLI/JLA stories are a little more appealing to me than the JLE stories, but they're both fun. I'm just annoyed Volume 6 ends on a cliffhanger... (B+)
I guess I don't have a lot to say about this volume. It continues the JLI trend of the humorous superhero approach. If you liked those, you'll probably like this one too. I know it's a classic, but some times I feel a little silly reading this title. It was written over 20 years ago and doesn't really seem to be in line with today's comic book continuity. But then I come across a little nugget that still resonates with modern comics. (For instance, this is the volume in which Max Lord first lear ...more
A bit text heavy but loads of funny bantering and pointing out stupid mannerism of super hero comics.
Nice art too although Lobo was not dangerous looking at all. More like lame pale wanker.
The writing is weakening here... as is the artwork. It's still has flashes of Giffen brilliance, but it isn't the genius of the first year of JLI.
DC Comics has been reprinting this comic series from the late 80's and early 90's and since it may actually be my favorite comic run of all time, I have been buying them. Some of the early volumes in the reprints had problems with the color quality, but with this volume they did an amazing job of re-coloring and touching up the art for the reprint and the book looks amazing. It also collects some hilarious issues, including Guy and Ice's first date. I'm hoping they keep these reprints coming. I ...more
I know that putting this on an actual "book" list is strecthing a bit, but what the hell? It's got a hard cover and runs over 200 pages. The best part of this collection is probably seeing the different renditions of Guy Gardner's bowl cut. Even being written in the 1980's, there's no excuse for such horrendous hair. Seeing that when I was a kid made me a strict Marvel-only fan. Now I can view it with some sort of nostagic irony, I guess.
Not quite as good as the other JLI volumes, but still a lot of fun, especially the Beetle/Booster parts. And Big Barda. And Fire. And... well, you know :)

Another light-hearted and fun volume.
