Absolute Justice League Origin



Now packaged in an oversize Absolute Edition, the NEW YORK TIMES best-selling JUSTICE LEAGUE VOL. 1: ORIGIN defined the status of the DC Universe in the New 52 following a line-wide relaunch of every title and is written by DC Entertainment Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns and illustrated by DC Comics Co-Publisher Jim Lee!

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 comics history, Geoff Johns and Jim Lee reimagine the classic heroes of the DC Universe. This Absolute edition collects issues #1-12 of JUSTICE LEAGUE, part of the DC Comics--The New 52 event, and includes behind-the-scenes scripts, concept sketches and variant covers, all in an exclusive oversize slipcase.
