Greetings @JusticeLeagueBookClub, and a Happy 10th Anniversary to The New 52!
With Flashpoint over, and the DC Universe having been reborn anew, some things in the new DCU were similar to what came before (namely, those pertaining to Green Lantern and Batman), while other things were incredibly different (namely, everything not GL or Bat-related, by and large).
To ring in the beginning of the 10th anniversary of The New 52, we’re starting with the book that the whole affair literally started with: Justice League! Pop on your party hats, grab a noisemaker and a glass of bubbly, for it’s time to party, New 52-style!
- Justice League (2011-2016) #'s 1-12, the entire run of the series by master writer Geoff Johns and artist extraordinaire Jim Lee.
It should be noted that while the interiors of issues 7 and 8 were not illustrated by Jim Lee, he did provide the main covers for them, so they are generally considered part of his and Johns’ run.
Did you read anything from The New 52 as the Wave 1 titles debuted from August 31, 2011 through the entirety of September 2011?
What are your thoughts on The New 52 at this point of it’s existence (“this point” referring to when The New 52 debuted, but also to how you see it today)?
What is your favorite arc of these twelve issues?
In promotional imagery for Justice League and her solo title, Wonder Woman is seen wearing black pants (which was a look that was in line to what she was wearing in her Pre-New 52 solo title, in the story “The Odyssey”). As seen in the promotional image above, would you have preferred to see Diana in the black pants, or are you glad we got the blue shorts look for her?
Geoff Johns and Jim Lee are THE team-supreme of the Justice League franchise. That’s not a question, just a fact.
Anything else that comes to your anniversary-celebrating mind.
That’s our ringing in the big 1-0 mission, League! If you’re brand new to The New 52, you have found a perfect jumping-on point to all of it’s whirlwind, unbridled and FUN action and adventure.
If you’re a seasoned fan of The New 52, then this is a great time to reacquaint yourself with THE book of the whole affair. It’s been said before, but it bears repeating:
If you read only one ongoing series of The New 52, absolutely make it Justice League!
Enjoy the celebration and as always, have fun, League!
