3.0 out of 5 stars The next book should be great 10 Feb 2011
Format:Hardcover
Well, first the good news, Mark Bagley's art is excellent, it's even better than what he drew during his record run on Ultimate Spidey.
He copes with the huge cast of characters well, draws some great action sequences, and delivers some really cool splash pages too.
The problem comes with the story, in that nothing about it gives him anything truly interesting to do, plus it feels very disjointed to read, and never really goes anywhere that's genuinely new.
It starts during Blackest Night, and is set Immediately after the Cry for Justice mini-series, both of which have a big impact on the events in this book, as it attempts to address the repercussions on the League's roster.
The first half of the book is essentially an extended flight scene, interspersed with some flashbacks, which while it's done well enough, goes on for far too long.
The second half is better, and ends with a genuinely interesting final two page spread, that does make me want to see what comes next.
I know that the big yearly 'events' that Marvel and DC insist on perpetuating are always going to impact to some degree on the regular monthly books, and hence on these compilations, but the stories here really do suffer as a result.
James Robinson is a great writer, but this story has far too many disparate elements and really isn't a good place for a new reader to start, even though it's touted as a bold, new era.
I look forward to what comes next, but this is a bit of a shaky start and only worth buying if your a completist, or a big Bagley fan

3.0 out of 5 stars Blackest Night tie-in and a new team forms 29 Mar 2012
By Gareth Simon TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
This volume reprints DC Comics' Justice League of America issues #38-43. The first issue features Despero gatecrashing a meeting of some injured JLA members, knocked about by Prometheus in a previous adventure, and who are feeling a bit dispirited. The story then moves to the Hall of Justice as the Darkest Night begins, and we then have two issues of the minor characters facing their fears and overcoming them. The next issue changes focus to Donna Troy as a new team is recruited, and to introduce the latest set of villains, who are using New Genesis technology to create a new team of New Gods knock-offs. The new team seems to be dominated by former Teen Titans, as well as a few regulars and newcomers, and Green Arrow pops up and the pops off again to apparently kill a villain, but off-stage, so I have no idea where that storyline is taking place. The League finally catches up to the villains on Blackhawk Island of all places - though we have had flashbacks to DC history as parts of a futuristic machine are discovered in the past, allowing obscure characters to be remembered. It is all rather confusing, and hopefully will be explained in the next volume, as the villains assemble the machine, which allows then to view the 52 Earths of the multiverse.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bland Series of Transitions 30 Oct 2010
By Kevin M. Derby - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Oh good. More transitions and tie-ins. "JLA: Team History" does not stand well on its own. It's too tied in to "Blackest Night" and "Cry for Justice." As the powers that be shuffle the deck once again on the Justice League, they try a bit of a different tact. They decide to make it more of a real team and less of an "all star" team. And so a number of old Teen Titans come into the series, along with a few old familiar faces while DC clears the deck of a number of old members. The art and storyline are average and, sadly, the most memorable part of this collection of comics is how DC's bullpen seems to be thinking out loud as they write. Hey, let's bring in Starfire. Let's try the Guardian, he's kind of underutilized. Wait, he's not working. Let's send him off. Let's bring in somebody else. On the other hand, it is nice to see how some of the leads--namely Donna Troy and Dick Grayson--have grown. Still, this book remains average, at best, and is not for newcomers to the team or to the DC universe.

3.0 out of 5 stars Passable Art and a Decent Story. 17 Oct 2010
By Dylan Luciano - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This story is mostly a follow up to Cry for Justice (which I personally thought was just okay) with the falling apart of the Justice League of America but not before a Blackest Night tie in occurs. I'm not going to give it away but the Blackest Night tie in just made me hate Dr. Light even more and DC's attempts to make a lame villain look bad ass. After that a new Justice League is formed but I feel like it has way too much of a Titans vibe to it. But I'm willing to read another trade with this team. All what this really does is change the team, and have a Blackest Night tie in. I was also disappointed that the ending of Cry for Justice isn't followed up on this story.

The story is like the art in this story passable. It didn't make me want to gauge my eyes out or anything but I could easily name about five artists better then the one on this story.
1.0 out of 5 stars So bad...so, so bad... 10 Jan 2014
By Matt Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
So bad...so, so bad...

As someone that has not read a lot of JLA, this was not an easy book to jump right into. There were many things that I was confused on with both events that were mentioned and characters that I did not recognize. Although the Blackest Night tie-in story was better than the rest of the book, it still was not that good. I cannot recommend this book.

Loved it. There was a lot in here. I wish we'd see more of the past and more of the new members, but it was good.
