The Beginning of Anew

(I know it's been a month since this has been published, but I've been busy with school and buying and reading some of DC's new 52 comics).

When I first heard that DC was going to cancel all their books for 52 new books I was astonished when Geoff Johns and Jim Lee were going to start a book together. What better way to start off new books with an all-star writer with an all-star artist, am I right? When I think about the Justice League I mostly think about the team from the animated show (Justice League/JL Unlimited) with John Stewart, Wally West, J'onn J'onzz and Hawgirl...INSTEAD we get good old Hal Jordan, Barry Allen, AQUAMAN, CYBORG (who was withe Teen Titans) and more members yet to come.

Since the story takes place FIVE Years into the past, it's interesting when the heroes come together for the first. In the beginning of the story it's interesting to see Batman and Green Lantern together. For a moment I thought Johns was recreating a scene from ALL-STAR BATMAN & ROBIN the BOY WONDER (by FRANK MILLER and JIM LEE).

Justice League

So far, Johns and Lee make a great team as they make history (literally).

    It's the first issue of the New 52, which I have read. And it's amazing! Yeah! I love JL, Superman and Batman and all other. DC created something new, new history about DC Universe. And it's the great start. And, before this issue I disliked Cyborg. But, in New 52, Cyborg is very important member of the team. ...

    CoverI thought the standard cover for this issue was great, Jim Lee's art is amazing and it did a great job of showing off the team to new and veteran readers. I also liked the David Finch Variant Cover which again pictured the full team and for collectors was available in a 1:200 sketch variant. There was also a few reprint covers including a cover by Ivan Reis, all these covers were great as well but more of the same, I didn't really find them unique or interesting in any way.StoryThe writer o...
