Default Sodam Yat in Justice League #40

Completionists beware: Former Green Lantern scribe Robert Venditti is starting his run on Justice League with this week's #40, and he brought a certain Daxamite with him:

He showed up somewhat outta nowhere in the last arc of Green Lanterns IIRC, to help in the final battle.

Okay, I'm a little confused here. If a new story starts with 40, then where do I read the actual end of Doom War, because 39 ended with the League running into a glowing doorway and that was it. The two issues solicited on the next page noted 40 was a new story (unless Venditti is concluding the whole thing for some odd reason) and something else, but unless I had a misprint then I am a little lost here.

I think you need to read Year of the Villain: Hell Arisen. Unless Justice League #39 is set after that.

No offense to Venditti, but he had a LONG run with Green Lantern, and it was just not good. He needs to move on from that. In fact, I'm surprised that he's being allowed to write Justice League.

This reminds me of DC's LONG and inexplicable love affairs with Judd Winick and Howard Chaykin. They seem to think that if they just keep using these people, then at some point they'll finally somehow get better.

I found him to be fine when reined in editorially. Kind of like Geoff in that way, really.

Winick is great when doing funny gag strips like his Frumpy the Clown.
Chaykin is amazing in creator owned stuff, the more cynical, the better.

I can't remember having read anything by Chaykin set in the DCU, but Winick was just terrible from start to finish.

Winick's ENDLESS and awful run on Green Arrow should disqualify him from ever writing for DC again. It was a healthy seller when he took it over, and it's never recovered from his writing. It's just a marginal title now.

I don't think Green Lantern will recover from Venditti either. People are just buying Morrison now. When he leaves, it'll crash again.

I don't see how Winick and Venditti got to write those comics for so long. After a year it was obvious that they needed to be dropped, but they were allowed to go on and on and on, until they finally damaged the properties.

I suppose the high-ups DC thought that GA and GL were just sucko comics, and that Winick and Vendiiti were doing as well as anybody else but Geoff and Kevin Smith could with them. Which was drastically wrong.

I'll partially defend Venditti though by saying that GL was in terrible shape when he took it over. Geoff damned well knew that, which was why he quit when he did. But Geoff's popularity inhibited Venditti from breaking as radically from Geoff as he should have.

Unless the ending for Hell Arisen is even more abrupt and inconclusive than 39's, I'll probably get what I need there. Unless DC is doing weird hypertime shit again or something.

Thanks for the suggestion.

Yes, and I hated every single panel.

Venditti. Mahnke. Sodam Yat.

I'm sold. Actually, I was sold at "Venditti."

Not getting Hell Arisen because that's four issues at $5 each. I'll either trade-wait for the Justice/Doom story and see if it includes all the material, or just skip it entirely.

Okay, it's even more bonkers than I thought.

The ending of Justice League #39 flows directly into Death Metal, the new blockbuster event by Snyder and Capullo that's not even solicited yet.

Justice League #40 and subsequent issues are set before Snyder's Justice League run and various other DC events of the last two years.

Hell Arisen has nothing to do with it all, despite being solicited as the ending to the whole Super-Lex/Year of the Villain arc (and the ending to the Batman Who Laughs plot, despite that character now appearing on the cover of the FCBD issue).

Justice League #40 is not only confusing, but Sodam Yat has a plot hole. He claims to have come to Earth to warn them of genetically-engineered Daxamites being produced on Daxam, and Earth has "the" Kryptonian by the name of Kal-El/Superman/Clark Kent as "Enemy Number One".

Didn't we just have a multiple-issue GLC arc about General Zod and his new family taking over a planetary system, and being assisted/run by the Eradicator? So where's General Zod, his wife (I forget her name), and his young son (I forget his name) at?

^Yeah, they're out there on a new Krypton. They were shown in a recent Superman issue.

I just picked it up at my LCS. Vendetti is off to a running start, and I liked Mahnke's art so much that I grabbed the variant cover too.

Justice League #40 is set before Justice League #1 and issues concurrent with Justice League #1. This probably means that it's before that GLC run as well.

Since then I believe Zod has shown up in Bendis's Superman, sans-Eradicator I think.
