Justice League #8

Holy moley, the day almost got past me without a review - sorry about that, readers!

(I'll spare you my rants about the new Blogger update that is giving my aged computer fits.)

Anyway, here's a quick review to keep things on target: Justice League #8 is all tease and no deliver.

It gives us a glimpse of the League, who seem to be all business - there's almost no hint of fun about this team at all, or hints that they even like each other. They're a monolith of heroic power, destroying the bad guys and going to great effort to keep their numbers limited.

The gag here is that Green Arrow wants to join - and he doesn't take "no" for an answer.

We also get a tantalizing bit of info about a past adventure - but other than that, not much gets accomplished here.

Even the Shazam backup story doesn't provide much more than an introduction of the supporting characters.

Hopefully next issue will get things back up to speed, as writer Geoff Johns reunites with artist Jim Lee.

This issue is mostly forgettable.

Grade: B-
