JSA Annual

Now, I know I said I wasn't going to read this. But I was far too intrigued to not pick the book up and give it a try. And woo boy if I haven't turned out to be real pleased.

I just want to thank Geoff Johns for -- once again -- taking one of the things I hate about DC Comics (though there aren't many) and doing something cool with it. Geoff Johns takes that multiverse I can't stand sometimes and tells a story that starts out exactly as you think it's going to.

But then he turns the damn thing on its head. Gives us a violent twist that's positively "mwahaha" worthy. I know I felt a bit of a maniacal laugh rising up in me.

"Escape From Earth-2"? That's exactly the sort of story I want to read. I know I'd never want to be stuck there...

That WAS an interesting twist at the end, wasn't it? And I LOVED that two-page spread by Dale Eaglesham at the back of the book. Fabulous and hilarious at the same time.

Yes, it was an interesting twist. Like much of what GJ doesn't, you think "I should have expected that" when it happens although you NEVER expect it... .
