Publisher Comments:


As a part of the monumental DC Comics—The New 52 event, comics superstars Geoff Johns and Jim Lee bring you an all-new origin story for the Justice League!

In a world where inexperienced superheroes operate under a cloud of suspicion from the public, loner vigilante Batman has stumbled upon a dark evil that threatens to destroy the earth as we know it. Now, faced with a threat far beyond anything he can handle on his own, the Dark Knight must trust an alien, a scarlet speedster, an accidental teenage hero, a space cop, an Amazon Princess and an undersea monarch. Will this combination of Superman, The Flash, Cyborg, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman and Aquaman be able to put aside their differences and come together to save the world? Or will they destroy each other first?

In one of the most game-changing titles in comic industry history, Geoff Johns and Jim Lee re-imagine the classic heroes of the DC Universe for the 21st century. This volume collects issues #1-6 of Justice League, part of the DC Comics—The New 52 event.

E I Talamante, May 11, 2015 (view all comments by E I Talamante)
Part of DC Comics' reboot series, The New 52, the new Justice League is a combination between classic heroes and new origins. It has raised quite a bit of acclaim and criticism, and this is one reason why.

A rash of alien sightings has heroes from all corners coming together, bumping into each other as tempers (and egos) flare, cities are destroyed, people die, and mass confusion reigns. Typical day in the life of a superhero. But they're not all super, are they?
