BUT, this is still the preeminent run of the Justice League that gave us a Guy Gardner that could be loved yet repulsed by as well as the Justice League Antarctica. This volume was a little more serious than later issues since it was working hard to get more fan appeal during the post Crisis on Infinite Earths.
Overall, if DC would just print this on a slicker paper, it would leap out at readers with the excitement that we felt back in the late 1980's. This is the book series you need to read because you will enjoy it. Give it a shot - you will see Giffen/DeMatteis/MaGuire et al at their peak!
Bat Man is a little stiff but Blue Beetle steals the show.
Lots of nine panel grids full of ham and cheese.
I wish current DC would return to this well.
My preference would have been to have it in an oversized format, like JLA Deluxe or Ex-Machina Deluxe (going Absolute would have been overkill). It would have made Maguire's trademark facial expressions that much better.
Still, it was an upgrade over my old TPBs, which were getting worn out, and we do get a hard cover with it. And this is the only format it's now available in, as the TPB is now out of print. This book is still worth the cash because of the great stories, if not because of the presentation.

This series is one of my all time favourites, full of genuine, heart-warming moments. I laugh, I cry, I thoroughly enjoy every moment with these lovable dorks, and you will too.
