The story at its most basic is your classic Justice League versus Legion of Doom type scenario. The scheme cooked up by the villains this time leaves them feeling menacing without being ridiculous. The book features a large array of characters from various teams and uses most of them to great effect. Even smaller less well known heroes get their time to shine.
The art of the book is breathtaking, showing an incredible level of detail and care that you just don't see in your usual monthly comics.
Overall I have nothing bad to say about this book. If you are a fan of DC's heroes then you will probably find something to enjoy about this book.
The story begins with the major DC villains collectively experiencing the same dream of nuclear armageddon, one which the Justice League is completely unable to stop. To prevent this fate, the villains begin to work for the good of mankind, to the surprise of just about everyone. Of course, we soon find out there is more to this story than meets the eye.
There are two notable things about this collection. The first is the artwork by Ross, mastermind behind 'Kingdom Come' and 'Marvels'. Ross consistently delivers the best artwork comics are capable of publishing. The second is the writing, which is highly idealistic in a way comics haven't been for decades. Now this does lead to one or two noticeable plot holes, and thus the one star off review, but it still a gripping, enjoyable sotory that I can recommend to any DC fan.
But you know what? That's just the begining...
The huge cast, the smart dialogue and the complex and detailed plot are really to admire.
It does work excellent for a long time comics fan, since there are a lot of cameos and referential jokes, but the good thing is that it works really fine for a newcomer.
The book feature al the iconic DC characters beign hunted by an organized army of supervillains and ignored by the world they saved many times.
The entire Justice League falls at last, and the main story is how the hereos manages to stand up again.
It does have all the non-stop action, but also it does explores a lot of ethics and political subjects.
Imagine JLA: Tower of Babel mmeets Avengers: Under Siege and you can figure out what kind of epic story JUSTICE is.
This could work as a perfect prelude to Kingdom Come, since not just the art, but the characters and the story elements are pretty much the same.
And saying that you can figure how good this book is.
