Did anyone pick up Bendis' Young Justice?  I'm curious but not enough to put money down on it.

Was it any good?

I would have, except that it goes against my#1 rule of 'F*** Bendis and all his books."

Knowing what he did to Jon Kent, I'm not excited to see what kind of Iceman Motrin or dipshit he turns Connor into.

Hopefully in a day or so

Okay, I am torn honestly. Not for me, I know I didn't much care for it, but for you ... I think the nostalgia could effect the enjoyment level greatly so you could actually come away from this with high enjoyment levels where mine are so low.

Let me just say the art was decent enough, not great, but I have always had issues with Gleason's "eyes". Aside form the ocular  Cheesy the art was pretty darn good.

The writing is ..well, Bendis'y and, like I said in "Weekly", it has a high tone of Avengers Disassembled to it and a tad rushed in parts due to that very thing, but ... well, it wasn't horrible and MAY turn out to be fine, once the team is set.

I can't say buy, but I don't want you to miss out on something you could enjoy either so ... wait for a sale?

Actually, I have no interest in this book whatsoever.  The guys over at iFanboy made it their pick of the week which made me go, huh?

But it seemed like something right up Rodney(GayTitan) or Jimmy's alley so I thought I'd throw it out there.

The iFanboy guys liked the Hex character as well.

NORMALLY this would be right up my alley.

I love Tim Drake to death. I love Tim Drake written as the only true heir apparent to Batman (sorry Damien, you don't have the chops Tim does. Tim's planning trumps your single mindedness drive to succeed, destroy, and humiliate. Not that Tim is any slouch in the fitting and destroying everything about his opponent.)

I LOVE Conner Kent. That Superboy from Reign of the Supermen just resonated with me so much-perhaps, because like some older fogies who watched this more than I did with Dick from Robin to Nightwing, I got to watch him grow, grow up, and grow into his role. Loved this character.

I love the friendship these 2 have with Bart Allen. Mind you, most times I can't stand Bart. But coming into Johns Titans, then the Crises', his death and return, I'm a fan. Mind you, still like Wally more, but at least Bart has his own personality as a speedster as well.

Cassie...I like to see how she moves within the group. To me, this is the 'new' Teen Titans group that I look to as 'mine.

Pulling Ameythst is a pretty good move.

Hex? Eh.

Teen Lantern-DAMMIT NO!!! NO NO NO NO!! WTF?!! Better be an alternate reality Lantern. This just bugs the piss out of me.

But, you guys know why I"m not all over this.

F***ing Bendis.

I got the first issue and will get the second issue later today. It was kinda okay. Never really been a fan of this Bart/impulse. My biggest question is "what the fu** did they do to Ameythst and Gemworld?".
