October Already?

Well September sure flew by quickly. What is really strange, is that here it is, October 3rd, and it is still 70 some odd degrees and all the trees are still green. It is as though we are a month behind. There is a little bit of color here and there, or else the leaves are simply turning brown and falling off. Too much rain, I guess.

The pumpkins are fat and happy however. And October brings all sorts of nice things, such as the new Shade Mini-series, that I have been looking forward to, for quite some time now. Dagnabit, I love the Shade.

But what I REALLY wanted to talk about, before I got off course, meandering on about foliage...is the Justice League. Mainly, Hal. Despite not being that thrilled with Jim Lee's artwork, and the fact that only a few of the JLA even showed up...I DID enjoy the first issue of the Justice League, because I always enjoy seeing Hal being a bit of a jerk. Well, maybe not a jerk...but certainly a bit on the arrogant side. And really who can blame him? He's young, handsome, charming,and he's got this AMAZING wishing ring. Batman is just an old poop.

I have to wonder however. The JLA takes place in the past. But the JLI is in the present...I think. And Green Lantern is in the present, which means that Hal being missing, ALSO means that he's AWOL from the JLA.

Has...has anyone even NOTICED? Is this going to be addressed? If one of your heavy hitters just disappeared one day, wouldn't you be inclined to go out and look for him? Did he call up Batman and say that he's taking a leave of absence or is retired, or what? Inquiring minds want to know! Hopefully...we'll find out.

Do we even know what the JLA roster is in the "present" day?

I...don't know! This is one of the things that is driving me batty. The JLI does take place in the "present day", and it is interesting because Guy makes a remark about Hal being in the BIG Leagues. So...presumably he is still a member...just not lately.

It's confusing as heck. Almost as confusing as Dan Didio's assertion that Crisis may or may not have happened. Or some of the Crises may have...or not.

Arrghghhh! Continuity is...exploding...in...my...brain!
