Geoff Johns leaving JSA
It’s been announced on various comic websites that Geoff Johns is leaving “Justice Society of America” (JSA) after issue #26. I read this last night and was very disappointed. I thought JSA would be a book Geoff would stay on for many more years to come - unfortunately that will not be the case.
I will probably drop JSA after Geoff leaves. I’ve liked Geoff’s run on this title over the past two years, but I think the work he did on the previous JSA title is far more superior. I think by the end there were just too many characters to really focus on. What happened to Mr. America? I’ll flip through the first issue after Geoff leaves to see what the new creative team is doing, but if it doesn’t grab me, I’m gone.
There is no one at DC right now that’s doing anything that would make me consider continuing this book if they came on after Geoff. Maybe Paul Dini. Right now comics are getting too expensive and with a family to support, other things have to take top priority over comics. I’m looking forward to Geoff’s “Flash Reborn” next year and I’m interested in seeing what he does with “Superman: Origins”. Hopefully this reboot of Superman’s origin is much better than “Birthright”; it was so boring. Great art by Leinil Yu though.
JSA is a great book and has great characters. I hope a writer is found who respects and loves the characters as much as Geoff does. Many of these characters have been around for decades and I would love to see them continue to shine in the limelight for decades to come.
