JSA All-Stars!

(Entry edited on December 1, 2020 to reflect accurate names and pronouns.)

So, anyway this interview with Lilah Sturges about JSA All-Stars makes me happy. While I do think that Willingham would actually be really good with the large cast (see Fables), it's certainly much easier to get more characters with panel time. This quote both amuses and bemuses me:
I think the real world reason is kind of obvious in that Geoff had taken the JSA to the point where he had introduced so many interesting new characters that they weren't able to get the screen time that they deserved. So I think that by splitting the book up in two and having two issues worth of JSA every month that we'd be able to focus more on the characters. You know, every reader has their favorite character, and if your character doesn't get any panel time in that issue, you're like, 'Well, c'mon man! Where's Sandman? Give me some love!'
(insert shifty-eyed emoticon) Did you ever get the feeling you were being watched?

    Maybe now Obsidian will get lines TWICE a year! The man's basically been a mute since Manhunter got cancelled.

    It feels similar to what Marvel did with the X-Men during the last decade. Too many characters for one book? Split 'em up!

    But I don't see why there would be a problem with screen time for the characters. There are only really a few in the team that deserve the spotlight. Most can just appear randomly.

    I'm a JSA fan but one book is definitely enough for the group.

    I for one, am delighted. You can never have too much of the Justice Society, and by God, maybe Sandy WILL get some lines...or even a whole PLOTLINE around him!

    That...that would be something.

    This is so good ,because it's perfect when we can see different and new characters, this is an information to be share with my friends.
