Justice League #12

   Ah, it's the old bait-and-switch.

   You see, this isn't really an issue of Justice League (despite the team's appearance on the cover).

   The JL only makes one other appearance in the issue, in a single flashback splash page.

   Otherwise, this is given over to promoting the ongoing Justice League / Suicide Squad crossover.

   It focuses on a meeting (of sorts) between Amanda Waller (the force of nature that leads the Squad) and Maxwell Lord, the leader of Checkmate.

    We learn about Lord's rise to power and get a few hints about his future plans.

   It's not a bad issue - the story's interesting and the art is very good - but it's not an issue of Justice League, and that's what I laid down my $2.99 to purchase.

   Instead, I purchased an ad for a mini-series that I have no interest in.

   Thanks for nothing, DC.

Grade: B

Imagine if you're a youngster, excited about picking up your very first issue of JUSTICE LEAGUE, and it's this issue. You open the pages, drooling with excitement... then total disappointment. First impression failure.

Shame on you, D.C.
