They are the World’s Greatest Super-Heroes. But the members of the fabled Justice League of America are about to learn they aren't the only ones who can band together toward a common goal. The deadliest criminal masterminds of our time appear to be acting in concert — with a surprising plan that seeks to achieve more good than the JLA ever could!
But it’s just the latest attempt at world domination — and our heroes strive to expose the truth, to fight…for JUSTICE!
DC's pantheon of heroes is reimagined by fan-favorite painter Alex Ross (KINGDOM COME, Marvels) and writer Jim Krueger (Earth X, Universe X), with pencil art by Doug Braithwaite (Paradise X) painted by Ross. This ultimate slipcased Absolute edition contains all twelve issues of the best-selling maxiseries, plus expansive character bios, developmental sketches, pencil art, bonus covers, DC Direct gallery, and much more!
Alex Ross first came to prominence as the illustrator of Marvels before producing the award-winning Kingdom come. With a graphic novel for Vertigo (Uncle Sam), several projects for Marvel Comics and six oversized graphic novels starring DC's iconic heroes (collected in The World's Greatest Heroes), he continues to bring comics to a broader audience. In 2003, Ross was the subject of a retrospective of his work for DC Comics, Mythology (Pantheon Books), written and designed by Chip Kidd.
Doug Braithwaite has illustrated many popular characters including Batman and the Hulk. His collaboration with Ross and Krueger began with Earth X.
