2 reasons why I like Guy Gardener

And the following, (For context – Khund aliens left over the Invasion event in 1989(?) had shrunk themselves down to finger size and got trapped by Oberon in boxes in the JLI New York HQ kitchen. When the shrinking ray wore off, this is what ensued):

Heh heh heh.


Justice league variations on a theme

I’m reading a lot of Justice League 80s and 90s stuff at the moment. I’ve just read Justice League #1 to 6, then it turned into Justice League International, which I had up to issues# 25, and then I got confused. I think that series turns into Justice League America from issues 26 to 113, and meanwhile Justice League Europe starts (68 issues).
Anyway, I read JLI up to issue 25 and have now switched to JLE. When I finish that I’ll go back to JLA. I think that’s where the Guy/Tora romance starts, so that’ll be fun. I'm also hoping there will be more Barda.

There's also Justice League Task Force to read. I’ve no idea what that is. And then lots of specials and annuals and one offs. It’s gonna be a Justice League fest for the next few months, hurrah! I do love team up books.

Other than they are pretty damn entertaining I don’t have a lot of comments. Maybe I’ll just end up posting odd random pages.
In JLE Wally is a complete arse, and I’m not quite sure why Captain Atom has been given leadership of JLE as he seems really incompetent. I guess that was revealed over in JLA… Power Girl is in JLE, along with Sue and Ralph Dibny, and Animal Man too. I’m looking forward to reading more about them.

Currently listening to: A random selection, so far we've had Snuff, Ensiferum, Al Green and Mcluskey.

This was my absolute favorite incarnation of the Justice League, when Giffen and DeMatteis were writing it, and Maguire was drawing it, although Ty Templeton and Adam Hughes also did some spectacular artwork.

Try checking out the Justice League Quarterly issues as well, there were some hilarious stories tucked away in those books too.
