Review: Justice League, Volume One: Origin by Geoff Johns (Author), Jim Lee (Illustrator), Scott Williams (Illustrator) (L)

Synopsis: 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?

Review:  Having seen the movie (Justice League: War), I wanted to read the source material. With bright colors and detailed action shots, this is a fantastic comic. I enjoyed the witty dialogue, the action, the plot, and the art. The authors and artists capture the personalities and responses of each superhero accurately and I enjoyed reading this. I will definitely read the next in the series.
