If nothing else -- and I mean nothing else -- get the first volume. It contains not only the first 4 issues of the JLElite mini, but also Action Comics #775, widely regarded as one of the most compelling and well-written single issues to be released in our time.
"The ONLY reason the writer did that is because he is a self proclaimed hater of Batman and it was revenge for the whole Guy getting laid out."
Johns doesn't hate Batman, he just has a ginormous man-crush on Hal."
Lmao.... I could of swore I read in a Wizard interview that he got tones of hate mail because of that panel. People saying he hated Batman and he didn't deny it."
It was probably in jest. Johns jokes around a lot. Like I said though, it's not an unreasonable panel. I get that he's Batman, but Hal, even though he's my least favorite Lantern, has been declared as the greatest one ever.
