Title: Justice League Generation Lost
Post by: Jeff on September 23, 2010, 04:36:52 PM
Just curious - is anyone here reading this?  Is it any good.  I'm suspect since Winick is writing it but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't interested.

Not reading it, but is the "Generation Lost" series a regular ongoing title?  I thought it was a miniseries for some reason. 

Judd Winick was always hit or miss with me.  Never full blown hate.  I do like Joe Bennett's art though.  That issue #15 could be good to look at, at the very least!

Yeah - I thought it was a mini too.  It is bi-weekly so maybe 24 is the magic number?

Well, I decided to give in to temptation and try this out.  I bought issues 1 - 6 and read them this week.

I can't believe I'm saying this but Winnick has won me back...at least on this title.

It's really good if you were a fan of the old JLI, Booster Gold, Captain Atom or Max Lord.

BIG THUMBS Up for the first 6 issues.  Now I'll have to order the next arc.

Agreed - loved his Exiles and Outsiders; hated his Titans and return of Jason Todd.

This one so far is more of the former and not the latter.

Generation Lost is sooooooo good!

While I do really like Brightest Day as well, my buddy says that if he could have had the chance to pick between the two (he only grabbed BD), he'd take JLGL in a heartbeat.

If there isn't a second Justice League book to come out of these 24 issues, it'll be a loss for the fans. What they have built up with this group, and in secondary books with Booster and Power Girl, would be a shame to lose if they don't keep it going. So good!

And you could keep Joe Bennett on pencils too!!

Call me ignorant but what is the premise to the series?

Call me ignorant but what is the premise to the series?

It spins out of Brigtest Day as it starts with a world wide hunt for Maxwell Lord (brought back to life at the end of Blackest Night).  Then Max wipes out everyones memory of him except for Booster Gold, Captain Atom, Fire, and Ice.  He orchestrates things so that they become wanted as outlaws and the stage is set for the hunt for Max by the four heroes.

Thrown in are some nice dramatic details like Booster wanting revenge on Max more for the killing of Ted Kord, his best friend, and a short trip to the future by Captain Atom where some cool reveals are told, and you've got a really fun ride.  They also pick up the new Blue Beetle and a new Rocket Red in the first arc.  It also looks like they pick up Powergirl but I haven't got that far yet.

I definately think you'll like it, Rodney.

I'm a little confused as to how Part 5 and Part 8 are coming out the same day.  What happened to parts 6 & 7?

Hmmm - DC's site doesn't have them broke into parts - my LCS's website has them listed that way so they could just be wrong.

That would be AWESOME!!!!

Finished issues #7 - 16.

Issues 13 - HOLY CRAP!!!!!!!  I won't spoil anything here but....  HOLY CRAP!!!!!

And now I know how Max Lord completed his Brightest Day task.

HOLY CRAP!!!!!

This affects everything - Kingdom Come - Current Wonder Woman title.

I can't believe DC didn't market the heck out of this book.

Glad I got the back issues and can't wait to get caught up.  I'm picking up the three Powergirl crossover issues too.  Not a bit surprised as Powergirl has strong tie to this story - she just doesn't know it yet.

BIG THUMBS UP FOR THIS SERIES!

Jeff, I dont get this title. Go ahead and spoil it for me. PM me if you don't want to risk spoiling for everyone. Please?

SPOILERS COMING!!!!!!!!

SPOILER WARNING!!!!!!


Ed - I'm not sure I could give it justice in a single post.  There's a lot of little threads that overlap including Captain Atom time jumps, Max Lord erasing everyones memory of him except for his former JLI buds (who are now hunting him down), Powergirl in both future jumps warning Atom of Max, Max seeking revenge on Wonder Woman but can't find her because no one remembers her (tied in to the current WW series).

The biggest OMG moment for me so far was issue 13.  Max makes Magog commit suicide and frames Atom for murder.  By doing this, he wipes out the possibility of the Kingdom Come future and fulfills his mission for Brightest Day.  He's then given his life back.  This whole series is about the former JLI members hunting down Max Lord and has one wow moment after another.

I can't pimp this series enough.  Get it!  I think it ends soon at issue 24 so get the back issues or trade!

Awesome. Thanks Jeff.  8) I will probably pick it up in trade.

Just finished Power Girl #21 - the last issue of PG in the crossover with Generation Lost. 

I'm blown away by this series.  Hands down THE BEST work Judd Winnick has ever done, IMO.

Can't wait to get Gen Lost 22 in the mail.

Post by: Perry on March 25, 2011, 11:02:08 AM
After all your praising, I hit my boys copy of JLGL #21 yesterday on the way home from work. Just read it and even though I am new to the story (they thankfully they had a little blurb about what has recently transpired) I liked it. Not an action packed issue, as most of it has gone on prior, but I liked it.

Very good showing of emotion for Booster. I liked the way that was shown. Sporadic speech is a common thing when stressed or highly emotional and I like when writers use it. One of the reasons I like Bendis so mush is he knows how to transcribe actual human speech and Winick does a solid job of that here.

Art was better than I thought it was going to be. I say this because on first glance it reminds me of Acuna art, and while that is not a bad thing, I am growing weary of that style ... but this was pretty well done.

I can certainly see why you like this series Jeff, and I am kinda mad I grabbed the wrong issue of POWER GIRL. I grabbed his #22 by mistake, ya know, not the one you were talking about >:(

 :D

Ok guys, you got me convinced.  I'm going to buy issues #1-13 based on what Jeff is sayin!

Mile High is having a 50% off back issue sale this weekend, and most of these back issues are between $1-2!


Title: Re: Justice League Generation Lost
Post by: Jeff on May 21, 2011, 12:38:59 PM
Well the final issue of Generation Lost is now over.  It ended with a little less excitement but it would be hard to wrap up with any shockers given the pace of the series.

The BEST news?  They're relaunching an on going Justice League International with these characters!  Can't wait!
