Justice League: Cry For Justice #1...Oh Boy

A preview for the mini-series. Hal Jordan has had enough sitting around.

This mini-series could go either way.  It could be really good or it could be a trainwreck.  And I'm talking in terms of the team.  The Justice League Of America has always stood for something.  The quesion that Hal brings up is a valid one.  Are they really accomplishing what they're supposed to be?  If they are standing for "Justice," what does that really mean?  The DC Universe has become a little darker over the past few years.  The happy gathering of heroes doesn't seem to be doing what it should.  Hal brings up good points about how they keep losing fellow heroes with each 'crisis.'  I'm sure we can bet that there'll be another one coming soon.  Should the Justice League do something to try to prevent more deaths? 

On the other hand, if they do try to become more proactive in apprehending the 'bad guys,' where will they draw the line?  To what means will they be willing to go.  It's dangerous territory they'd be treading on.  Maxwell Lord already tried policing the entire world.  What will they do once they come face-to-face with the evil bad guys?

Issue one of Justice League: Cry For Justice is on sale July 1, 2009.  It's written by James Robinson with art by Mauro Cascioli.  Here's the preview from DC.  Do you think Hal has the right idea?

I don't think he wants to kill them he just wants to kick their asses before they have the chance to attack.

Wow... For a Marvel fanboy... I'm intrigued...

Posted by Supreme Marvel

I'm sure its the same artist that drew the second part of the Trials of Shazam!

Posted by Decept-O

Sounds good, but it seems Hal is whining just a wee bit about standing in Supes', Bats' and Wondie's "shadow".  A bit melodramatic, BUT for the most part, what he's saying is rather interesting.  Actually, it's something Hawkman would say.  Could be an interesting direction for JLA.

I don't read DC.......but this.....I'm getting. Gett em Hal!

Posted by blade hunter

looks good but anyone notice wonder woman's eeerrrrr lower parts?

Posted by Kurrent

Posted by vaaje-aina

taking the initiative to bring the fight to the bad guys before they do..... nice, i might give this a look....

Posted by Chaos Agent

Is it wrong that this Justice League (not only the team but also the writer and artist) look way more interesting than the "real" Justice League?

Posted by SUNMAN

someone just let me know when Dick Grayson makes his grand entrance into the League, it better be bad@$$

This Looks Awesome... Wonder Woman and All

Posted by Zoom

The best part is that with the League he picks?  Hal's gonna get curbstomped if he goes after all the people left over from the Secret Society.

He was hit by darkseid's 'omega ray' I think. It's that thing he shoots from his eye. It didn't kill batman either it just sent him to the distant past.
Posted by Deo Wade

I'll pick this up for the Art alone.

@burr787:
Thanks!

Cascioli is a genius. I'm really looking forward for this.

Didio said that he wasn't sure but there was a great possibility Dick will do that by the end of the year

This looks way, very, extremely cool! Of course I'm a James Robinson fan (outside of what he's doing with Superman; sorry, I just can't get into what he's doing over there.) The art looks very cool! Shame this is just a mini-series. Maybe if it sells well it will be extended as a regular series...

Of course, this was also very cool when it was originally called (wait for it) Batman and The Outsiders.

Yeah, lame joke, but I've been waiting all day to use it...

My eyes are filled with delight!

Looks awesome!

it was originally an ongoing, then a 12 issue maxiseries and now a 6 issue miniseries

The art work looks good. I do agree, what's up with Wonder Woman's legs? Why is she always got these big thick thighs and scrawny arms?

I think it's for the angle to make it look like we are looking up at them.
