Summary

Comics superstars Geoff Johns and Jim Lee make history with the first hardcover collection of a DC COMICS - THE NEW 52 series! In a universe where Super Heroes are strange and new, Batman has discovered a dark evil that requires him to unite the World Gre


Author Notes

Geoff Johns was born in 1973 in Detroit, Michigan. As a child, Johns and his brother first discovered comics through an old box of comics they found in their grandmother's attic, which included copies of Flash, Superman, Green Lantern, Batman from the 1960s and 1970s. Johns eventually began to patronize a comics shop in Traverse City, recalling that the first new comics he bought were Crisis on Infinite Earth and Flash, as the latter was his favorite character. As Johns continued collecting comics, he gravitated toward DC Comics and later Vertigo Comics, and also drew comics. After graduating from Clarkston High School in 1991, he studied media arts, screenwriting, film production and film theory at Michigan State University and graduated from Michigan State in 1995. Johns met up with DC Comics personnel Eddie Berganza who invited Johns to tour the DC Comics offices, and offered Johns the opportunity to pitch ideas, which led to Johns pitching Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E., a book based on the second Star-Spangled Kid and her stepfather, to editor Chuck Kim a year later. John's soon became a regular writer on such series as The Flash and The Avengers United. He also writes for series such as Teen Titans and The Future is Now. His title Earth One made The New York Times Best Seller List for 2012.

Publisher's Weekly Review

As a part of DC's global reboot program, the New 52, these first six issues of Justice League serve as a fast-paced if dramatically inert origin story. Writer Johns resets the time line to "five years ago," when the world at large fears and mistrusts Batman, the Green Lantern, and Superman. Beset by infighting, these three are joined by Wonder Woman, Aquaman, the Flash, and Cyborg to battle ever-multiplying emissaries sent by Darkseid to collect and recycle human beings. The plotting and character dynamics are mechanical and cautious: our heroes haven't really changed, but their costumes have. Cocky quips (the Green Lantern to Batman: "You're not just some guy in a bat costume, are you?") abound, but do little to change or develop readers' decades-old familiarity with these characters. The artwork by Lee and Williams reflects the industry standard for superhero tales: dynamic action is masterfully staged, while bodies suffer from anatomical hysteria. These first issues' major objective is persuading readers to again recalibrate their imaginations so that future stories are less burdened by continuity concerns. It's entertaining, but has the staying power of a stick of Juicy Fruit. (May) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
