DC Comics hands the reins over to Writer / Artist Bryan Hitch to navigate the adventures of everyone’s favorite superhero team for the new monthly title Justice League of America. I don’t see what the difference is between this series and Justice League, except that it offers another avenue to bring even more adventures to readers and fans that just can’t get enough of the characters. One thing I can say for sure is it’s off to a stunning start.
In issue #1, the League came up against an armada of aliens heading for Earth that claims to be a peaceful religious tribe. But something sinister is lurking in their ranks...something with ties to ancient Krypton!
The team learns more about the armada of religious zealots that has arrived on Earth – and their stunning connection to Superman's home planet in Justice League of America #2!
Justice League of America #2 is rated T for Teen. The issue doesn’t hold much action and is really more of an intellectual read. Depending on how you look at the issues it’s tackling, some might find it to read like an allegorical study of Biblical writings while others will scream blasphemy.
Writer Bryan Hitch takes the DC Universe into an interesting direction as he basically ties the Biblical prophecies of the End Times into the comic book world of superheroes. It’s pretty evident he’s studied the source material, as it almost reads verbatim like a metaphorical sermon at a Southern Baptist Church on the dangers of falling for false prophets and gods. I was instantly fascinated with the parallels found within the pages of Justice League of America #2. Aside from the religious aspects of the book, Hitch and Wade Von Grawbadger’s artwork captures the drama and tension of what is transpiring in each panel of the issue.
Justice League of America #2 is available now in print and Kindle editions.
