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.

Justice League Volume One: Origin
I found this book an enjoyable read that what it lacked in substance it more than made up for in style and Jim Lee's amazing artwork. It's a simple story that does what a Justice League story should, gives a big villain for them to fight and then let's the audience watch each character have at least one cool moment. It really is that simple.
Don't read this if your looking for a classic book to be mentioned among the likes of The Dark Knight Returns and Watchmen, this is as close to a movie blockbuster in Comic Book form you can get.
I probably won't retread this but I will be getting the next volume, so obviously it must be doing something right. If you're looking for a Justice League book with more substance then I'd recommend either Alex Ross's Kingdom Come or even Grant Morrison's New World Order. While this is a great jumping on point for all new comic readers, make sure you try out some others too that have as good a script as art.
