Book summary

If successfully reuniting all of DC's flagship heroes under the Justice League of America banner wasn't enough, JLA: Earth 2 finds Grant Morrison producing perhaps his best JLA tale, continued proof of his mission to ensure that the current League's adventures have top-notch super-heroics infused with his customary mind-bending narratives. Here, the oft-used chestnut of alternate realities is given a fresh airing, showcasing his sparkling character interplay. The story comes together nicely: The League rescues a stricken passenger jet, only to find all the passengers are already dead, let alone have their hearts on the wrong side. Then, a Kansas farming couple discover a crashed spacecraft in a cornfield. Sounds familiar. Not so, when Lex Luthor emerges. The pre-eminent superhero of an alternative Earth, he's come to seek the JLA's help against the CSA--The crime Syndicate of Amerika--a superhero team devoted to evil. In a world of exact opposites, how can the JLA tackle a foe who is destined to win? Morrison is at his best here, never once stooping to cheap get-out clauses in his story. On Earth 2, the JLA represent a tyranny of law and righteousness and their doppelgangers are a bunch of intriguingly drawn characters with splendidly twisted locales (Johnny Quick is a drug addict, Gotham is a police state with Gordon as a crime boss). It's been a while since the JLA has been rendered with such a compelling mix of thought-provoking stories and heady excitement- this is just the book to witness it best. Danny Graydon [via]
