Product Description

About the Author

Grant Morrison has been working with DC Comics for twenty years, after kicking off his American comics career with acclaimed runs on ANIMAL MAN and DOOM PATROL. Since then he has written such best-selling series as JLA, BATMAN and New X-Men, as well as such creator-owned titles as THE INVISIBLES, SEAGUY, THE FILTH and WE3. In recent years Morrison has been hard at work expanding the DC Universe in titles ranging from the Eisner Award-winning titles SEVEN SOLDIERS and ALL-STAR SUPERMAN to the weekly 52 to the reality-shattering, multiverse-spanning epic that is FINAL CRISIS. In his secret identity, Morrison is a "counterculture" spokesperson, a musician, an award-winning playwright and a chaos magician. He lives and works between Los Angeles and his homes in Scotland.

By Sam Woodward TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 6 Feb. 2014
Format: Kindle Edition
All of my favourite stories from Morrison's run on JLA are included in this volume. These & his 'One Million' crossover event are the high-octane highlights of his frantic run.

The return of classic villain The Key combines tongue-in-cheek cheese with imaginative alternate-world versions of the iconic heroes. These include a Kal-El who is selected to be the Green Lantern for Krypton & in a nod to his future run on Batman, an elderly Bruce Wayne has passed the mantle to his son. While they battle their way out of their various dream-worlds, it's up to the new Green Arrow to save the universe with his dad's old boxing-glove arrows. Meanwhile The Key explains his scheme to the audience like the classic villains of old ("Make a note of an interesting side effect of my expanding consciousness. I can't stop talking to myself"). Great stuff.

There's also the introduction of new villain Prometheus. A reverse-image of Batman who fights for injustice when his parents are shot by the police, Prometheus is in many ways is based upon Morrison himself. And he does pretty well for a first attempt at taking down the JLA, too!

But the undisputed highlight - of both this volume & Morrison's entire run - is the classic 'Rock Of Ages' storyline. What begins as a straightforward knock-about between the JLA & Lex Luthor's re-formed Injustice League takes a bleak turn when some of the heroes are flung into the future - where the outcome of their present-day struggle has enabled Darkseid to enslave Earth. How they get back again is a bit of a Silver Age-esque cheesey cop-out but the final confrontation between the heroes & Darkseid is an amazing spectacle with a fiendish conclusion.

While this volume has a darker edge than the first, there's still plenty of humour & charismatic one-liners to soften the blow. Morrison deftly combines modern storytelling techniques with an ironic wink to the JLA's cheesier roots. Wonderful.
