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!

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.

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 Angry

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!

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!
