Joe | 16 comments a superhero group (who look like a justice league knock off) take over the world or country (not sure) after a war with the government and rule a dictatorship then one of them is murdered and another super who is not part of the group and despises them has to investigate.

Joe | 16 comments no that not it thanks anyway


message 5: by Random (new)

Random (rand0m1s) | 103 comments It sounds similar to Rising Stars, a comic book series published in trade paperback.

Here's a link to the first
Rising Stars, Vol. 1: Born in Fire

It has all of the elements you mention though in a differing order. Some of the events don't show up until later in the series.

When did you read it? We always need to know.


message 9: by Joe (new)

Joe | 16 comments possibly but I don't think so and I have not read it I saw it on internet forgot about (don't know when that was) and remembered it a few days ago and can only remember the cover and blurb the cover showed the justice league knock offs in the background at the top.

Joe | 16 comments no zombies were mentioned so no it sounded more like a Noir

Well Jen, while you didn't know Joe's book series, you helped me remember one that this thread had reminded me of.

And I'm sure it's not Watchmen, but I'm going to go ahead and toss it out there anyway.

Glad you found your book, Joe. People often find adding links to their comment a bit tricky.

To post a book or author link, it's best to use the desktop site (not the mobile app). Click add book/author just above the Comment box. A popup will open, you search by Book title or Author, then click Add to insert a link into the Comment box.

If it's a common title, type the book title AND author in the "Book" field/box.

If you want to add the book's cover image, select the "Cover" radio button at the bottom, then click "Add".
