Two and a half stars rounded down.

It's a Justice League comic, so let’s have a role call to see who’s in the house:

Superman? No.

Batman? Nope.

Wonder Woman? Negative.

The Flash? Sorry, no.

Okay, I’m desperate – Aquaman? No. Whew!

Alright, just who is in the clubhouse:

Vixen. With a broken leg.

Red Tornado. Whoopie! DC’s Vision. Just as exciting, too.

Plastic Man. But he’s all melty, and looks like he’s been out at the beach all day bird dogging women.

Dr. Light. Hot Asian female version, not the angry d
All I can say is it was kinda meh. Not horrible, just nothing that sparked much interest.

At least there was a lot of dead. :)

I've always loved James Robinson's writing (on his classic Starman run and The Golden Age miniseries, various iterations of The Justice Society and somewhat on the recent Cry For Justice) and I'm always a fan of Mark Bagley's art, but this collection disappointed me on almost all fronts.

The individual issues this book collects (#38-43) were difficult enough to follow along with when published monthly, coming as they did in the midst of several company-wide and "JLA franchise" cross-overs and min

Something wierd happened half way through this book. I saw a character I reconised but didn't know who it was. So i just dismissed it. Then it happened again execpt this time I knew who it was and it was a different girl.
It was Gwen stacey from Ultimate Spiderman. I flipped back to the other girl and it was Mary Jane with black hair.

I remember reading a review of Ulitmate spiderman where the reviewer said that the artist draw all the faces the same and I dissaggreed.....Now I dont disagree. I do
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 o

I have always enjoyed the JLA, in all it's various incarnations through the decades. This new modern JLA is a very enjoyable read. Great art and plot make this JLA a great read for an older fan or a perfect place for a new fan. Very recommended

I like Robinson a lot as a writer, but this was a disjointed collection for me. I may become less critical by reading collections before and after, but as a stand alone TPB, it left me with more questions than answers.

Edición española publicada como JLA tomo 2 que traduce el crossover con La Noche más Oscura.

Disjointed plot, when there is even any forward progression of the story. Missing facts, so the Faithful Reader must buy other DC comics to keep up. Art that doesn't make the action clear, but gives every woman at least a 36C figure and en exotic dancer's movements. Dialogs like every villain has a Ph.D. and every hero a conflicted, tortured life (except Congorilla. Maybe.). In the end, it truly was sound and fury, signifying nothing.
Shannon Appelcline
This volume is unfortunately hampered badly by a constantly changing roster. A two-issue diversion into a big Blackest Night fight doesn’t help much, though the look back at the Detroit league ends up being one of the best elements of an otherwise incoherent volume. Robinson’s excessive use of thought dialogue also doesn’t help. Nor the fact that the plot doesn’t actually end.
Matt Anderson
So, so bad...

As someone that has not read a lot of JLA, this was not an easy book to jump right into. There were many things that I was confused on with both events that were mentioned and characters that I did not recognize. Although the Blackest Night tie-in story was better than the rest of the book, it still was not that good. I cannot recommend this book.

Not a fan of Bagley's art, first of all, and practically nothing even happens in this volume. It's almost all set-up of a story to be resolved elsewhere with a musical chair line-up of B-list heroes. It's a shame because James Robinson on JLA should be a homerun. Too bad he got stuck with Mon-El, Dick Grayson, and Donna Troy as the "big three" he could have in the book.

This is very much a transition book. Starts with the previous league in Blackest Night, has an increased roster for about an issue..then they all leave bar 4 by the end.
The art by Bagley isn't my favourite but it's not the worst. There are a lot of great concepts in the book and some nice flashbacks. All in all this book was missing something, and felt a little hollow.

James Robinson has written some wonderful comics - but even with the Shade and a Starman making appearances, this is not one of them. A mess, pulled hither and thither with no sense of direction, never giving any indication that it exists for a reason beyond DC's obligation to keep publishing a Justice League comic.

Admito que me compré este tomo más que nada por una cuestión de completismo (ya que había conseguido a buen precio los números #1 y #3), pero como tampoco me salió caro, sube a la lista de ofertas bien aprovechadas. Bah, lo de "bien" ya lo veré cuando lo lea.

I'm not really into comic books/graphic novels so this book wouldn't be something I would choose to read again. I think if you like comics then this book would be an interesting read.

Loved it. The art was good and the story good. I do wish we'd see more of those new members before they left off panel.
