Random Thoughts #4

Well, it looks like it's time for some random thoughts. I'm pretty much ready for work, and I'm bored as well.

Graphic Novels - JLA/Avengers

Graphic Novels - JLA/Avengers (aka Avengers/JLA)
Writer: Kurt Busiek
Artist: George Perez

While I am still trying to finish the 6th volume of Teen Titans, I have decided to hold it off for a moment and talk about the greatest crossover ever: JLA/Avengers. I had planned on getting this eventually, but I didn’t want the tpb. I ended up finding all four issues for about…I don’t even remember. All I know is that I got it cheap. The basic story is that some big evil threatens just about every universe, and it’s up to the JLA and the Avengers to stop it. I’ll do this like I did Legends: quick synopsis (A LOT happens in these four issues), opinion, and highlights. Before I do that, here’s the creative team:

Kurt Busiek – a long time writer. He’s most known for his work on Marvel’s Marvels (with Alex Ross), Astro City (which I’ve heard is good), and the revival of the Avengers in the late 90’s. He’s also done work on the Superman books Post-IC, Static Shock, and DC’s Trinity(don't know about that one).

George Perez – a legendary artist. He does both the pencils and inks for the book. COIE, New Teen Titans, Action Comics (as a writer as well), Avengers, Perez has done a lot of stuff for comics in the last few decades.

So here I go:

Graphic Novels - Superman: The Supergirl Saga

Superman: the Supergirl Saga
Writer: John Byrne
Pencillers: John Byrne and Jerry Ordway

Well, it’s here. I finally have the will and the time to start this. I got these three issues at The Great Escape for a decent price ($3.00 maybe?). I got these mostly because I heard so much about it. The last issue is also John Bryne’s last time on the Superman books (I think it was creative differences, I don’t know). At this time, he was writing both Superman books. Action Comics (a book he also wrote on for a time) had ended up becoming weekly for a while. Anyway, these issues are Superman #21-22 and The Adventures of Superman #444. So let’s get to it.
