A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

As a part of the monumental DC Comics—The New 52 event, comics superstars Geoff Johns and Jim Lee bring you an all-new origin story for the Justice League!

In a world where inexperienced superheroes operate under a cloud of suspicion from the public, loner vigilante Batman has stumbled upon a dark evil that threatens to destroy the earth as we know it. Now, faced with a threat far beyond anything he can handle on his own, the Dark Knight must trust an alien, a scarlet speedster, an accidental teenage hero, a space cop, an Amazon Princess and an undersea monarch. Will this combination of Superman, The Flash, Cyborg, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman and Aquaman be able to put aside their differences and come together to save the world? Or will they destroy each other first?

In one of the most game-changing titles in comic industry history, Geoff Johns and Jim Lee re-imagine the classic heroes of the DC Universe for the 21st century. This volume collects issues #1-6 of Justice League, part of the DC Comics—The New 52 event.




About the Author
Born in 1973, Geoff Johns is Detroit native who brings a Hollywood sense of storytelling to comics. After working as an assistant to Richard Donner (director of "Lethal Weapon, Superman: The Movie," and many other great films), Geoff has brought his considerable writing talent to comics. One of the most prolific and popular writers in comics today, he is currently writing "JSA, Teen Titans," and "Flash" for DC. Johns' work revitalized "Hawkman" after a checkered history and brought new life into the "JSA" title, featuring many of DC's heroes from the Golden Age. His new version of the "Teen Titans" has been released in repeatedly sold-out issues. Among his upcoming projects is a re-launch of DC's popular "Green Lantern" series.

Acclaimed comic book illustrator Jim Lee was born in Seoul, South Korea in 1964. Today, Lee is the creative director of WildStorm Studios (which he founded in 1992) and the penciller for many of DC Comics' bestselling comic books, including All-Star Batman and Robin, The Boy Wonder and Batman: Hush. He also serves as the Executive Creative Director for the upcoming DC Universe Online videogame.
