GRAPHIC NOVEL REVIEW: JUSTICE LEAGUE: ORIGIN NEW 52

Written by Geoff Johns, this graphic novel introduces the reader to a new look into the origins of one of the most famous superhero teams of all time, the Justice League! I was pleased that the roster of the founding members was largely the same as the original: Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Batman, Aquaman, and Flash. The only change was including Cyborg instead of the Martian Manhunter. With the Man of Steel film released, I certainly hope that if DC Comics creates a film for this version of the Justice League in the near future. In this graphic novel, the Justice League bands together to fight a powerful enemy that threatens the fate of the entire planet. The artwork is so captivating that it entrances the reader with almost realistic action of good versus evil. I would recommend this work to anyone who seeks to read a truly wondrous superhero story.

  1. You’re in luck, they just adapted this graphic novel into a film called Justice League War. I definitely recommend it. They did take some liberties from the comic, but the changes were all right. (Except taking out Aquaman) This was a very good way to start the New 52.

  2. Yeah it wasn’t bad. I’m a fan of John Stewart over Hal Jordan, and would even like to see Kyle Raynr get some cool playing time in cartoons. But it’s good to see Cyborg grown up and doing his adult thing, post Titans.
