Reading "Monument Point," the collection of the last 5 JSA comics, gives some insight as to what happened. Writer Marc Guggenheim steered the team with some ability in the comics collected in "Supertown" but he let things spiral out of control in "Monument Point. Guggenheim simply fails to pull the strings on this Tolstoyian cast of characters-he is not up to the standard Johns set here or even writers of the equally large Legion of Super Heroes like Jim Shooter, Paul Levitz, Mark Waid, etc.

  • Not that long ago, when Geoff Johns wrote their stories, the Justice Society of America's (JSA) comics were some of the best on the market. Right after Johns left, DC launched another comic featuring the "JSA All Stars." It looked like things were going in the right direction for the team.

    Then the plugs got pulled on both comics and the JSA was not included in the "New 52" and a comic featuring one of their lead members--Mr. Terrific--did not last 10 issues. It's amazing how quickly the JSA fell from grace and how the sales plummeted.

    Reading "Monument Point," the collection of the last 5 JSA comics, gives some insight as to what happened. Writer Marc Guggenheim steered the team with some ability in the comics collected in "Supertown" but he let things spiral out of control in "Monument Point." The team has more than 20 members--so Guggenheim should have known better than adding even more heroes to the squad (Red Beetle, Blue Demon, Manhunter) while basically ignoring already established members (Cyclone, Atom Smasher, Obsidian, Stargirl, Wildcat II, Citizen Steel, sadly I can go on here). Cameos from the likes of the Challengers of the Unknown don't help either. Guggenheim simply fails to pull the strings on this Tolstoyian cast of characters--he is not up to the standard Johns set here or even writers of the equally large Legion of Super Heroes like Jim Shooter, Paul Levitz, Mark Waid, etc.

    Guggenheim does offer some solid looks at the team's heritage and he does well with various threads--Lightning's struggle to survive (and once that thread is done, he then moves Lightning--who was really showing potential as a character--to the sidelines), the Flash as the mayor of a city. But this does not redeem the book. One of the main members of the JSA dies at the end but what should have been an emotional moment fell flat in Guggenheim's hands.

    The book is not helped by having 8 artists and 4 inkers for a grand total of 5 comics. A little consistency would have been nice.

    The JSA will be back in some form or another. Let's hope the new incarnation draws more from what Geoff Johns did than Marc Guggenheim's run, the end of which is collected in "Monument Point" which I have a hard time recommending even to the most strident of JSA fans.

  • Very satisfied!

  • great read, but i wished the volumes were numbered. it doesn't read in order when all 9 are purchased together
