Summary
Eisner Award-winning painter Alex Ross has stunned fans time and again with his artwork in books including Kingdom Come and the World's Greatest Super-Heroes. Now one of comics' greatest artists turns his attention to the greatest heroes of the DC Universe: the Justice League of America! In this volume, a conspiracy of villains has found a way to defeat the Justice League, while looking like heroes to the public. Will the JLA's reserve members be enough to turn the tide against the villains?
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "In the second Justice collection, the Justice League's archenemies have put Superman, Batman, and the JL's other big guns out of commission to forestall the destruction of the Earth that the superheroes envisioned in a shared dream. Hence, such second-stringers as Captain Marvel, Elongated Man, and Hawkman must step into the breach. It's tempting to read the idealized depiction of these famous heroes by superstar artist Alex Ross, who developed the story line and painted the pages over Doug Braithwaite's pencil drawings, as his response to the controversial miniseries Identity Crisis (2005), which depicted the same iconic figures in a morally ambiguous fashion. --Gordon Flagg Copyright 2007 Booklist"
