JLA Deluxe Vol. 2: As Darkseid is... the JLA IS! 19 Feb. 2010
By W. Wong - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The JLA Deluxe editions collects Grant Morrison's vision of what the Justice League is all about; quite simply put:

The seven greatest heroes of the DC Comic Universe (Aquaman, Batman, Flash, Green Lantern, Martian Manhunter, Superman, and Wonder Woman) uniting to solve that universe's greatest problems.

The real selling point to the Deluxe editions is that Grant Morrison's well crafted, title redefining tales are beautifully reproduces in large (11.25" x 7.5"), hardbound, dust jacketed, and glossy papered collections; each weighing in at over 250 pages. Each volume is a handsome edition to any library or bookshelf display.

The second volume of JLA Deluxe continues Grant Morrison's seminal run on this series. It collects JLA issues #10-17 (which were released as trades JLA (Book 3): Rock of Ages and some of JLA (Book 4): Strength in Numbers ), PROMETHEUS #01, and the JLA/WILDCATS crossover.

Hands down, this volume contains one of the best stories arcs in Grant Morrison's run on the JLA title, "Rock of Ages!" During this story arc the JLA battles both the Injustice Gang (lead by Superman arch nemesis, Lex Luthor) and Jack Kirby creation, the new god Darkseid. The battle with Omega Darkseid in JLA Deluxe Volume 2 is definitely foreshadowing for what would latter take place in the pages of the maxi-series Final Crisis. The "Rock of Ages" arc take by a good bulk of this collection (about 60%)and deserving so; where else do you get a story in which THE CLASSIC SEVEN take on each a top villain from each of their respective rouges gallery (if Gorilla Grodd were present instead of Mirror Master then it would have been a true collection of archenemies) but one of the greatest single threats to the DC Universe as a whole? The PROMETHEUS #01 issue adds nicely to this collected volume since it provides some much needed back story for Morrison's new villain Prometheus; who's single desire in life is to destroy the JLA (which he attempts single handed)! The character Prometheus is an interesting study of the possible product when the character's parents are like the couple from such movies as Bonnie and Clyde (Two-Disc Special Edition), Raising Arizona, or Natural Born Killers (Director's Cut) (depending on your perspective). The final story in this volume is a cross over in which the JLA teams up with Wildstorm's Wildcats #3 : The Big Beat Down (Image Comics) team to take on a reality altering villain.

If you love JLA as THE CLASSIC SEVEN and you love Grant Morrison's writing then this is a MUST HAVE for your library. This is definitely a volume meant for those who are a little more familiar with the DC Universe (in comparison to the previous volume).

Magnificent!! 30 Aug. 2010
By Xavier Zavala Heras - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I found this second volume even better than the first one.
"Rock of Ages" storyline is for sure the "little" Final Crisis, but with sense!. Much of what happens here is what happened in the very much hated maxi-series. I enjoy that arc a whole lot!.

The Prometheus story was VERY much enjoyable too. It was the first time for me reading this story and it really got me. Batman's line "Well, that was a humbling experience" worth alone the purchase of this book. Was pretty cool!.

The Wildcats/JLA story wasn't that awesome but I give it credit.

Anyway, this is a handsome book and you shouldn't miss it. Worth every penny.

The Classic 90s 12 Oct. 2009
By Max Michaels - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The 90s were a strange time for DC's pantheon of classic heroes: Green Lantern had gone crazy; Green Arrow was dead; Aquaman had a hook for a hand; Hawkman was replaced by an angel; and Superman was a blue guy with electrical powers. People who wanted the Super Friends were not going to find it in DC's flagship team book. Bad editorial mandates aside, Grant Morrison tells some big, fun, crazy stories in this volume, channeling Jack Kirby with larger-than-life plots and light-speed action. Also introduces Prometheus, the super-tough villain who gets his powers from ... a CD!

The Best way to get started in Comics 5 Sept. 2009
By Krazykaleb - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
If you like comics or, if you never read a comic before, Grant Morrison's JLA is the best way to get started. Poetic, Detailed, Spectacular and Epic would be the words to describe his work, especially for those who think outside the box of reality and into the galaxy of imagination. Buy this with JLA, Vol. 1 (Deluxe)
