    By far the worse of the new JL titles. World: The art is not good, I love Sejic and he killed in Aquaman but the first two issues looked rushed, the line work was less detailed and the backgrounds looked simple and basic. The facial expressions were still there but Starfire’s hair is a perfect example of the lack of detail in the art and it’s not Sejic quality at all. The rest of the issues are just as bad they are bland and scratchy, with the last issue taking the cake. I know I don’t like the W By far the worse of the new JL titles. World: The art is not good, I love Sejic and he killed in Aquaman but the first two issues looked rushed, the line work was less detailed and the backgrounds looked simple and basic. The facial expressions were still there but Starfire’s hair is a perfect example of the lack of detail in the art and it’s not Sejic quality at all. The rest of the issues are just as bad they are bland and scratchy, with the last issue taking the cake. I know I don’t like the Williamson Flash art and this is that and wow is it every muddled and scratchy. The world building here is really suspect and takes a lot of logic leaps “because comics” and “because the writer wanted it” moments for this story to work. I don’t really know how to express it without spoilers but Grant Morrison already laid out very clearly where New Genesis and Apokolips existed outside of the DC Multiverse in “Multiversity” and that how there is only ONE even in the 52 DC universes, it’s canon, it’s established, it’s clearly known and talked about in DC books and most recently Dark Nights Metal also acknowledged it but now why is Williamson doing this entire premise with Darkseid that is completely different but also completely pointless? The problem with the world building is that this major fact is the anchor in which this entire book exists and it’s already wrong. Then there is the fact of the internal logic of how the Lost Sector works and how these new worlds works and the way time is portrayed in this new world and how it all works with the these ‘Old Gods’ that the book talks of. It’s all timey wimey bull that if written well would make internal logical sense, but it’s not here it is just a collection of half baked ideas that makes no sense at all and the world therefore is really just not created properly. Story: If the premise and the world itself does not make any sense how can the story make sense? Add to that the drive for the characters (which I’ll get to below) is spotty at best and you have a really poorly written book that barely makes any sense at all. The idea of a group entering the lost sector makes sense, it’s not difficult to imagine that JL sending a group into it to make sure it’s okay, same with the GL Corps, that makes sense but nope Williamson says that they are not allowed to enter and that only 1 sentry was set up outside the sector by the GL Corps...why?????? When they do enter, big surprise, the way they get in, the idea of what they do there and the Old Gods and the Darkseid stuff, all of it makes no sense. How does time work in there? Why are they worshiping these ‘Old Gods’ what does it tie together? It’s preposterous when you read the book, and it makes no sense that argh I don’t even want to talk about it. The dialog is bad, the world building is bad, the writing and pacing is bad, the premise is idiotic. This could have been a very straightforward adventure, action adventure space opera tale in a new and undiscovered sector, that would have been fun, but no...this book wants to be something more and grander and bigger than it should be without even doing the homework to set up this sector in the first place. I’ve said that Williamson is a bad writer and this is another example of it. Characters: Wow these characters don’t sound and act like themselves at all. I have had issue with Williamson in his writing for the Flash books and saying that those characters are off and not written correctly and this is the case here. Bringing this group of characters together was really spotty and iffy logically but let’s get past that and just listen to what words come out of their mouths and also the choices that they make in these 5 issues and you will want to rip the book apart. Cyborg is not like that, he’s not that dumb. John Paul Valley is not like that, he’s not that dumb. Jessica is not like that, she’s not that dumb. Kori is not like that she’s not that dumb. They are also not completely opposite of what they are as characters in all other books except this one. I hate this series, it’s poorly written, it’s not thought out properly, the world building is lazy and the character work is atrocious. Williamson is the new Lobdell of the DC (where Lobdell was racist and sexist...Williamson is just a lazy writer). Onward to the next book! *read individual issues*

    Decent start to DC's new cosmic book (and WAY better than Marvel's similar Asgardians of the Galaxy title). Just a few notes on this one: I like Darkseid's new look. I thought Azrael was super religious? He's running around like "I finally get my own worshippers, haha!". I don't know a ton about him, but this seems a little out of character from the little bit that I have read about him.

    Basic Plot: An odd conglomeration of JLA members heads into the Ghost Sector to find the source of a strange voice. This is an odd conglomeration of heroes, and they don't really gel together terribly well. They all have separate agendas, and Azrael is just obnoxious. Cyborg and Starfire work decently well, but Jessica Cruz just feels tacked on. The concept is good- Darkseid looking to bring back Apokolips, and using people to do so, but the execution isn't really coming together fully for me.

    This book was plagued with re-writes and re-draws even before it launched, which explains why this first volume isn't quite as strong as the other Justice League titles are right now. Cyborg, Starfire, Azrael, Jessica Cruz, and Darkseid find themselves in the middle of a millenia-long plot featuring all of the missing planets that were captured by Brainiac, and now only they can save the Ghost Sector and possibly the entire universe as well.

Cyborg, Starfire, Azrael, Jessica Cruz, and Darkseid find themselves in the middle of a millenia-long plot featuring all of the missing planets that were captured by Brainiac, and now only they can save the Ghost Sector and possibly the entire universe as well. It's a solid idea, and there's a lot more under the surface, but it takes a while to get to it. It does feel like it's being made up as it goes along, and I think that's just a symptom of the book not getting to hit the ground running as it would have done if the behind-the-scenes stuff had been ironed out entirely to start with. The artwork's not bad, although Stejpan Sejic doesn't get to hang around quite as much as I'd have liked. Carmine Di Giandomenico is a good fit though, while Phillipe Briones does his best to keep up with the pair of them. Not a bad start, but definitely not reaching its potential just yet. I can confirm however that the current volume (which is about halfway through) is a vast improvement, so it's definitely worth sticking with it for now.
