2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Crofty TOP 1000 REVIEWER on April 19 2013
Format: Hardcover
For this (New 52) Justice League debut the action explodes onto the page from the very beginning. It starts out where you are in mid battle with the Flash and Green Lantern amidst some urban chaos, while they exchange silly banter referencing pop culture. All this intensity gorgeously illustrated by the master artist Jim Lee.

Justice League Vol. 1: Origin collects Justice League 1-6.

What appealed to me and made me pick up (borrowed) this title was the fact that it featured Jim Lee's artwork; which was the greatest strength of this graphic novel.

The writing however...

The other reviewer on here couldn't have said it better "If Michael Bay wrote comics this is what it would be." The truth is, yes it's mostly style over substance. It's a summer blockbuster "popcorn" spectacle. I for one wasn't too impressed with the cheesy dialogue throughout. I was a huge fan of the Animated Justice League Series where they had clever writing; they balanced style, substance and intelligence.

There are many instances where an epic storytelling of a grand scale involving many Super Heroes done intelligently with mass appeal without the lost of integrity. Like Marvel's The Avengers (Blu-ray/DVD Combo).

I feel that the writer had a lot of potential to create excellent writing without sacrificing the exciting blockbuster element (for example The Dark Knight Trilogy Limited Edition Giftset (Batman Begins / The Dark Knight / The Dark Knight Rises) [Blu-ray]) Maybe next time! :)

This was an okay read, I was hoping for more!

Format: Hardcover
Quick one liners, nice visuals, and a whole lot of explosions. Sound familiar? Right like a those buddy movies from the 80's and 90's. I loved those movies. The great thing about that type of story is that you do not go into them thinking it is going to be a groundbreaking experince that changes your view on the world, pollitics, or life in general. This is the essence of Vol 1. of Johns, and Lee's JL. Lots of fun banter, some really good action, and a somewhat popcorn style story. That is certainly not a critism of the book, we all need to let go of the notion that everything we read or watch needs to have a deeper meaning. Letting a fun story be what it is can be a very liberating experience that reminds us that fun can simply be had while turning our brains off for a few hours. I have read this twice. My first go around I was somewhat critical of this comic, partly because I had lofty expectations, and reading as it came out in single issue. Then I read the whole story in one sitting, and it was fantastic ( for the reasons listed above ). Do not let your need for books like The Watchmen, Sandman, Batman Year One and Swamp Thing keep you from reading this fun take of some of the best superheroes we will ever see.

I'll be short. It's not a bad book, not a good book. It's an entertaining book but it fall a bit short... It's an entertaining start and a better take of the Justice League than it's preview incarnation. The art is Ok ( it's Jim Lee, but it's not in is better form...). John writing is ok but not stellar ( i'm not the greatest fan). But overall, it's just fun. (Wonder Woman a bit weird... )

With he new 52 kicking off, DC needed a way for the great heroes to come together. Naturally, cue the big guy Darkseid and unlikely solo heroes coming together in an origin story set 5 years before modern day new 52. A great and fun book of earth on the line and 7 unlikely team mates stepping up and working together. Great Justice League get together of younger more brash heroes then we were used too.

When I was younger I had a great number of comics (until they were stolen), because of the theft I decided to stop collecting comics (let's just say it wasn't exactly a motivating experience). I read all sorts of collaborated superhero teams. This past year I started reintroducing myself into the world of comics and/or graphic novels. And I gotta say that DC's New 52 'Justice League Volume 1' was truly refreshing, it brought back the past of how fun comics were to read but at the same time it's done in a modern stylistic approach. "Five Star Hands Down!"
