Some First Issue
As I countdown to this special event when two comic book companies of two nations come together for the first time as Western superheroes team-up with Eastern superheroes...I had a few concerns:
1. We do not have a cast of characters about who THE 99 are. No origins, no explanations. (But something tells me that like all the MILESTONE characters, there will be a trade paperback to explain the early exploits of THE 99 before meeting the Justice League)
2. The roster of the JLA: Old team. Does this happen before/after the events of BLACKEST NIGHT or BRIGHTEST DAY? (Bruce Wayne seems to be in here, but no new costume before his new series BATMAN, INC.)
3. The cover fooled me (the shadow the creature = STARRO. I thought he would be in the first issue).
(I hope their is a Islamic comic book reader/user here on COMIC VINE who knows who the 99 are because we Americans need to know more about them before this story is finished)
So far things might be awful in this first issue...but eventually things will get better as the plot thickens. I would say about 1.5 or 2/5.
