DC Comics is having a four-day sale on Justice League books to celebrate the upcoming release of Injustice: Gods Among Us video game. DC sales seem few and far between. Here are my thoughts on this one.
JLA (1997-2006) #1-9
I highly recommend these books penned by Grant Morrison. They are great Justice League stories filled with some perfect character moments. For JSA fans might want to check out issue #5 to see Damage the son of the golden age Atom botch his JLA try out.
Identity Crisis #1-7
I really enjoyed the first half of this series but didn’t care for the end as much. Brad Meltzer sets up this story as a super-hero murder mystery but unless the reader has knowledge of 1960/70s comics and beyond it’s not a mystery the reader can solve (even when looking back on the full seven issues. The art by Rags Morales is gorgeous and Meltzer does give us some great moments. I love the super-hero crime scene he sets up. Former JSA members Hawkman and Black Canary are front and center in this story. The Justice Society, The Ray, Dr. Mid-Nite, and Sir Justin, The Shining Knightas get some great and sometimes pivital moments.
Justice League of America (2006-2001) #1-7
I had mixed feelings on Brad Meltzer’s take on the Justice League. I did really like his attempt to grow the character of Red Tornado and had mixed feelings on his use of Solomon Grundy. These issues include JSA members Black Canary, Red Tornado, and Hawkgirl. This also leads into a great crosssover with the Justice Society of America in that series.
Justice League (2011-)
This is Geoff Johns and Jim Lee’s introduction to the post-Flashpoint, New 52 DC Universe. This story shows how the main DC Universe dealt with the attack from Apokolips and it compliments the first issue of Earth 2 very nicely.
I read this first issue and it is great.
