No sense what so ever, the plot was terrible, and it fits no were in the DC Universe continuum. It was really out of place.

I'll admit, I didn't really like how this was going from the start, but about halfway through the story really started to pick up and it became enjoyable. Although the story got confusing right off the start, with the whole Justice League being disbanded and all, it started to make more sense as the book progressed, so by the end all my questions, at least most of them, had been answered. I liked Team History, as confusing as it was, but nevertheless it was still an enjoyable comic to read and I'm looking forward to the next. I'll give Team History a 7/10.

Collection of issues 38 to 43 of the Justice League. This league is not a great collection of heroes fighting together to bring down justice, but rather it is falling apart at the seams, with a rotating door for membership after the horror of Blackest Night. Members are grieving. Others are disheartened. And several are out of action due to their injuries.

But the problem with this book is that it is a collection of issues that were published during a company-wide event, and we are missing some of the narrative pieces to have the whole story make sense. If companies like DC and Marvel want to do "event" publishing, I would strongly recommend that they publish some kind of Omnibus with any relevant bits put together and short text pieces to bridge the gap. A reader should not have to hit the web to make sense of a collection.

A bit disjointed, primarily because it's covering two very different Leagues. The first half is tied into Blackest Night, the second presents a new League lineup. There's a companion trade out there centered on Green Arrow, which you'll have to read to get a sense of what's going on off panel in the second half, and for those of us who aren't as familiar with the DC universe, several of the characters remain nameless. Still, the art of Mark Bagley, one of my favourite comics artists, is very welcome.
