Cry For Justice: The Remixes

Believe it or not, I don't exactly agree with Doug Zawisza's baffling five-star review of "Justice League: Cry for Justice" #1.

But I do agree with THIS.


"Cry for Justice," indeed. James Robinson may not live this one down.

I don't know, perhaps this along with Loeb's recent output qualifies as comics for early-teens? Heavily detailed (though completely expressionless) art, coupled with a really immature script, and that's saying something, considering the subject matter.

Oh, thank God!

The preview for this was HORRIBLE!

But so many people liked it, and then that five-star review...

I still haven't reattached my jaw.

I'm glad someone with an opinion I respect disliked it.

Thanks for the laughs, Tim!

Bruce, you might want to take a peek at:
They're heaving a field day with it:)

Also, IGN comics had both their critics give it low scores:

It's pretty much getting universally bashed, and perhaps rightly so, after all the hype.

Bruce Castle said...

Thanks, Vanja. I'll have to check those out.

Hey, Tim, we could verge this with the Fistfight in Heaven thread!

Cry for Justice is bad, and Williams is better than Bagley.

I just saw Caleb's remix right before I stopped by here. Thanks for pointing out the other one. Did you see the Promethea tribute at Savage Critics?

This book was pretty disappointing, and those links were great :-)

I didn't really think this was horrible, it was just mediocre and over really fast. Decompression in american superhero comics seems to have no end. It's really getting ridiculous at this point. How long did this take to read? Six minutes worth of entertainment for $4? No other industry could get away with that. You'd have to really like the artwork to make that make sense (heck, I read a downloaded scan (shops around here don't carry single issues), and I'm annoyed).

How about this for a business idea: a comic company whose founding philosophy is an absolute minimum of nine panels per page? Plus some sort of story that moves along and some sort of quality. And some new ideas, and the list goes on . . .
