I picked up the JLA line that just came out, issues one and two because they're drawn by Bryan Hitch and I love me some Bryan Hitch.  It's a little less "widescreen cinematic" and a bit more "Comic book" and that's fine by me, even if I love the former.  Decent reads, though I'm amazed that no one in this comic book world apparently ever saw Independence Day or The Day The Earth Stood Still or any episode of The Twilight Zone, cause dang.  SOMEONE should be saying SOMETHING.

Nice little touch: Batman is Ben Affleck.  Straight-up Batfleck in the book.  And Alfred is David Niven.  I can't really place any of the other heroes yet, though.

I also picked up the first issue of All-New Archie, and it's... certainly different.  It's a five minute read, tops, but it's a good five minutes.  The art style is real interesting but the detail in it, well, that's something else.  There's not a LOT of detail thrown in, but what's in there is good, the facial expressions, the body language, the fashion the kids in the background wear, I'm real impressed.  It might be one of those books that works better in bigger chunks like TPBs, but it's definitely worth checking out.
