Format: Paperback
I'm a huge comic book/graphic novel fan, have been for more than 20 years, yet I have never heard of this amazing book. I'm guessing because it came out in the JLA spin-off title JLA: Classified and its wonky title.

I've never seen a writer "get" not only the JLA but each member's part in it so well. The story is simple but brilliant, the JLA gets lured/forced into seemingly declaring war on China, while battling a freelance terrorist. What makes it so good is that the writer walks into a cliche minefield without detonating a single mine. The JLA act like mature adults and things make sense. I don't think I can express how rare that is.

My highest recommendation. Why isn't this considered a modern classic?

When the JLA is called in by the UN to remove a murderous dictator from the helm of his nation, they found themselves bound securely by international laws and rules. However, this man knows how to bend those same rules to suit his own purposes. General Tuzik is going to use the international system to wage a one-man war on the JLA, and he has more than one ace up his sleeve. Can the Justice League survive everything that Tuzik will send against them? Let’s hope so!

I am a big fan of graphic novels – some are quite excellent, and some are quite bad. Fortunately, this one falls into the former category. This book is crammed full of lots of exciting action, pitting the JLA against numerous opponents, requiring them to use their muscles, their brains and even their hearts to win out. I really enjoyed this book and give it my highest recommendations.

I actually checked this book out at the local Library, even though it didn't look all that great when I was flipping through it... you can't beat free for taking a chance. I actually took it home for a couple reasons:

1) THE CREATIVE TEAM: Gail Simone has a fabulous reputation as a writer (Wonder Woman: Rise of the Olympian, Secret Six: Six Degrees of Devastation, Birds of Prey, Vol. 1: Of Like Minds) and Jose Garcia-Lopez is pretty awesome too (Modern Masters, Vol. 5: Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez). I knew them both more by rep than by experience, but the rep was excellent for both... so why not, right?

2) THE CONCEPT: The Justice Leagues overthrows a dictator, only to have him take up refuge in China (who offers him asylum) and launch a multi-pronged assault against the League. His most powerful weapon in his war on the JLA is a woman who can resurrect anyone who dies in her presence as a superhuman, giving him his own anti-Justice League.

SOLD!

So, I actually read this book in one sitting. Even though it has some messy bits in the writing here and there, fans of the JLA will likely enjoy it.

Ms Simone simply is not a good writer for Wonder Woman. Her high point in the book is baking muffins, her low point, a damsel in distress, she is the only JLA member who needed to be rescued from her predicament during the crisis point of the story. Not recommended fare at all.
