Booklist Review

Gr. 5-8. Having had great success with both Batman and Superman adventures, DC Comics is releasing Justice League Adventures, a comics series that mirrors its television counterpart currently running on Cartoon Network. Each of the tales here stands as a complete story, making this compilation a perfect gateway for readers new to the genre. There are some changes between this JLA lineup and the regular DC series (e.g., Hawkgirl instead of Aquaman), but these make the book both more interesting and more accessible. The action is fast paced and exciting while subtly touching on larger issues such as redemption and heroism. Each JLA member contributes to the narrative, allowing for better identification with the characters and avoiding the superstar syndrome that can plague ensemble stories. The artwork is consistently strong yet true to DC's traditional interpretation of the characters, and although different artists and writers have created the stories, the work is highly consistent. Great for kids searching for heroes as well as those looking for quick, well-written comics stories. --Cathy Buksar Copyright 2003 Booklist


Library Journal Review

This book collects seven stories from the comic book series of the same name, inspired by the Cartoon Network animated Justice League show. This version of DC's premier superteam features Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, the Flash, and the Martian Manhunter, working alongside Hawkgirl and a black Green Lantern (longtime DC character John Stewart). Over a dozen writers and artists contribute, and many classic DC villains are featured. With art in the simplified style of the cartoon, this book is aimed at younger readers-but longtime fans are likely to enjoy it as well, with homages and references to many other DC stories and a feel that harks back to the classic 1960s Justice League comics (which, like this new series, featured complete stories in each issue, as opposed to the multipart sagas that are now standard).

School Library Journal Review

Gr 6 Up-Originally published as individual DC comics, this collection of seven stories will entertain a wide age range of readers. In these action-packed adventures, Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Lantern, Martian Manhunter, and Hawkgirl work together when one hero is not enough to triumph over evil. They use their extraordinary powers to ensure that the super villains always lose and they protect the Earth from disaster. The drawings are detailed and entertaining and tell the tales with a minimum of words. This volume should be considered as a first purchase for those just starting graphic-novel collections or as an addition to existing collections.-Kathleen A.
