Ok... I've never been a monthly DC reader. Those of you who know me may know that about me already. But I promised a friend that I'd TRY out the new Justice Society of America book.
I thought, what the hell? The 1st issue is like $.75 from DCBS and those Alex Ross covers are always awesome. I'll read the first arc. It's supposed to be the "ideal jumping on point for new readers" and you aren't going to need any prior knowledge, so that's good. But I've been trying to do my homework and read the interviews and features that I see on CBR and Newsarama.
And there I found this:
NRAMA: And then, after the initial arc?
GJ: With #5 and #6, we cross over with Justice League of America, so we'll roll right into that.
What?!?!?! I don't read that book and don't want to. Now I'm pissed and I haven't even read the 1st issue yet. PLUS - I'd have to pre-order JLA 5 & 6 based on the strength of just 1 issue. But wait, there's more. I'd have to order #6 out of this month's catalog and already backorder #5 because I didn't know about this until now!
Did you guys know this? Are any of you planning on trying this one out, or were you planning on getting it already?
