cwpolzel's Justice League International #1 - The Signal Masters, Part 1 review

This is the first of the 'New 52' I have read...

THE GOOD

I liked this issue. Dan Jurgens has always kept me entertained with his writing. I thought the introduction of team members as part of the story was clever. I liked the exchange between Booster Gold and the UN representative, when he first arrives. I have been a fan of Aaron Lopresti's work for years, and this is no exception. Lopresti's work is complemented greatly by Hi-Fi's coloring. I really like the group of characters selected as well(not sold on Godiva yet). I liked the ways Booster, Guy and Batman were handled (I singled them out do to their 'screen time').

THE BAD

The story seemed kind of rushed at times. I wish there had been more time to explore the members themselves. So far, I'm not sure about Godiva. I know it is an international hero team, and it makes sense, she was on the Global Guardians (another UN sanctioned team) previously. The first page looks off to me. I think it's just the composition of the image. I miss Blue Beetle, Ted Kord :(

THE VERDICT

I liked it, overall I think it was a good start. Jurgens has worked with many of these characters and is a great writer, the art is solid and perfect for the book. It is a great book, and I plan on reading issue #2.

I really liked the characters meeting and I was super excited after looking at the first page (Don't be. Half of the characters don't appear) I liked G...

    Gee Willikers everybody! DC’s new 52 is here! And how better to start my journey in Justice League International #1 attempting to inform you weather something is good or not with mixed results and charisma that you can cut with a spoon then with the Justice League…… International. The question is "cans a man who has never let his name or likeness be used to advertise adult dippers lead a new team of international heroes?" Or will it all come crumbling down? Let’s pick up Justice League Interna...
