Even though the stories take place in the old DC Universe, this is an excellent jumping point for new readers. Written by Grant Morrison, this volume heralded the best JLA era of the last 25 years, with exciting stories that have the feel of the Silver Age, but with modern twists and writing style. The Big Seven come together to save the world of menaces such as Starro, the Hyperclan, Doctor Ivo & T.O. Morrow, The Key, and even angels from heaven itself. Containing JLA issues 1-9 and Secret Files and Origins #1, this affordable volume features Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Flash, Aquaman, and the Martian Manhunter as you have never seen them before. Each one of them gets the opportunity to shine with their fantastic abilities while building on their legendary team dynamics. Did I mention that the JLA fights against angels from heaven itself?
