Nick Nerco is even more boring as a villain than David Graves. Plus, the name sounds like it was made up by a 16 year old.
Add to that the fact that characters like Frankenstein and Amethyst get added to the group for absolutely no reason. And the Michael Bay style movie quips "Game faces kids, it's time to save the world" Gag.
That annual was the final straw. I was going to keep reading this book because I've read every issue of Hellblazer and I'm a completist but I just can't take it, Lemire is terrible.
I think he suffered because he was trying to keep the original tone each character so it ended up reading kind of schizophrenic.
Again, still better (and more fun) than turning every character into the same generic "badass."
JLD has been one of the standout books of the reboot. Just my two cents.
From now on, I'm going to refer to this book as Justice League Hot Topic.
