Justice League 3 (January 2012)

You know who should be writing DC’s new Wonder Woman? Geoff Johns.

You know who can’t write Aquaman, apparently, in Justice League? Yeah, Johns too.

This issue opens with Wonder Woman, gives a really quick look at her arrival in the new DC Universe, immediately establishing a strong female character. It’s utterly fantastic.

Shame the rest of the comic is crap.

Why is Jim Lee doing Jack Kirby creations? Lee’s denizens of Apokolips look awful. Darkseid shows up for a second. My “Super Powers” action figure looked better.

Just to elucidate, Lee’s art on the Wonder Woman scenes is pretty weak too.

Justice League was previously absent any quality. Johns brings some and doesn’t even seem to notice the difference.

If Johns and Lee–DC’s chief creative officer and co-publisher–can’t even figure out their own strengths and weaknesses, how do any DC comics have a chance?

I’m bummed.
