Justice League, Vol. 2: The Villain's Journey by Geoff Johns
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I liked this a lot. I'm glad, since I wasn't that fond of the first JLA adventure I read. This book captures the darker side of being a superhero, and asks, "What happens afterward?" A writer whose family was caught in a crisis that the JLA successfully resolves, comes down with a mysterious affliction that causes their premature deaths. David Graves is grief-stricken and enraged by the experience, seeking revenge. He comes across a mystical force that allow him to harness the angry ghosts around him to destroy the league.
The artwork was very good, conveying the dark storyline and the action. I liked the way all the Leaguers were drawn. Of course, I am a huge Green Arrow fan, so it was great to see him show up (although he is Connor, Oliver's son).
Overall, I don't have any complaints with this graphic novel. I think that this is accessible to people who are crossing over from the DC Comics movies and TV shows to the comic books.
