DC’s biweekly JUSTICE LEAGUE event continues! Justice League International has re-formed and tracked Maxwell Lord to Checkmate headquarters. Their plan is simple: break into Checkmate – one of the most heavily guarded facilities on the planet – and capture Max so he can pay for his crimes. But Max has more than one trick up his sleeve as he turns the entire world against the JLI and shows Booster Gold, Captain Atom, Fire, Ice, Blue Beetle and Rocket Red what it truly means to be lost…

Users who pulled this comic:


  1. The best event from DC I’ve read so far.

  2. @Minion: I wouldn’t call it an event. It’s just a series.

  3. @Conor I guess you’re right but it feels more like an event than Brightest Day.

  4. Whatever it is I love it.  It’s paced perfectly as both a bi-weekly comic and a long form 24 part story.

  5. @Minion: I don’t consider Brightest Day to be an event either.

  6. Between the last issue of this and what I’ve heard happens in Brightest Day #7, I’m really curious to see where this will go next. 🙂

  7. I’m really anxious to read this–but not so anxious that I’m going to drop money on it right now.

    When 52 was going, did they release trades before the series was finished or did they wait to collect it until after the title ended?

  8. I’m enjoying this much more than Brightest Day. I know they’re both going to cross over at some point, but for now this is my favorite DC book.

  9. @ScorptionMasada: After it ended. I think the first trade came out in the same month as the final issue.

  10. Damn . . . that’s going to be a bit of a wait for this.

    Hopefully they do three 8 issue trades and not four 6 issue trades.

  11. Event semantics: If Brightest Day is not an Event, what is it? The Banner is plastered across half the issues DC is selling. It could be just a new status quo for the Universe, like Marvel’s Heroic Age and their AWFUL AWFUL AWFUL banner. That is not an event. But the Brightest Day banner means the issue has one of the resurrected heroes/villains in it, so it is sort of an on-going, sprawling connected story, like an event. A status quo with dividends? Yes, I could just read it without labeling it, but where is the fun in that? 

  12. @JimBilly4: It’s a status quo.

  13. Phew! Now that it has been properly tagged I cna go back to enjoying the story.

  14. That is one badass cover

  15. It is a spectacle.

  16. It is a brou ha ha.

  17. Or perhaps a Bwa-ha-ha.

  18. @ScorpionMadada: According to DC’s The Source Blog, this will be collected in two trades.  Brightest Day, however, will be collected in three trades.  http://dcu.blog.dccomics.com/2010/07/09/a-look-at-what’s-in-store-for-spring-2011-collected-editions/

  19. Thanks ctrosejr! That’s exactly how I want it! Hardcover, baby!

  20. Great issue last week. 

  21. This was the definition of a fun comic. The title of the issue alone is worth the price.

  22. POTW because it was a great mix of action, dialogue and plot. I’m interested to see how Magog is involved. i’m glad I only have to wait 2 weeks for these.

  23. This is probably my favorite comic now that Atlas is getting canned. I wish the Avengers was this good.

  24. This is everything I love aboutthe DCU and reminded me of the DC comics I read and loves way back when I got into comics ten years ago

  25. Fantastic issue!  When they realized that Booster was their team leader all of a sudden, brilliant!  Rocket Red, hilarious.  Witty Soviet banter, priceless!
