I'm an X-Men fanboy who got into DC via Green Lantern and while I pull Batman yea, Justice League is def on my list. I've been liking it thus far
For me it's just because the decompressed stories aren't worth my money. I prefer buying trades.
I've bought the recent issues of Justice League (Throne of Atlantis) and have really liked it so far. Also, Black Adam has appeared in the Shazam mini story, so I HAVE to read it lol.
'The marquis. Well, you know, to be honest, he seems a little bit dodgy to me.'
'Mm,' she agreed. 'He's a little bit dodgy in the same way that rats are a little bit covered in fur."

I've been getting Justice League for the Shazam backup. And I don't even think the backup is that great.
A) have a common goal
B) want to be there
C) ultimately DO get along, even if they don't agree about how to do everything.
I don't get that from the nuJL. I still think the frat boy mentality applies to how the team is portrayed. It's a bunch of alpha dogs and Cyborg who just happen to work out of the same base.
Because not even Johns and Lee's names can carry their phoning it in.
Throne of Atlantis has been better, though. It's a real shame though that the bar was lowered so much by them, prior, that this average story now comes across refreshing.
I still say it doesn't seem so bad. Just reread 1-6 in trade this week and it flows very fast as a crash course for everyone meeting one another. The head bashing seems to make sense seeing as it's a bunch of alpha dogs meeting at exactly the same time. It's not like this is a well established team with people that know each other admitting a new character at a time.
I'll have to reread 7-12 this week to see how it flows when done in one sitting. Which brings up another point...are #0 and 13-14 going to be collected? I was thinking that they might be tacked onto the end of Vol 2 but they weren't.
Unless it's going to be a small Vol 3 with all the of the Shazam backup stories included
