"In the wake of a world crisis, a new generation of the World's Greatest Super-Heroes takes center stage. But it's the most unlikely grouping of heroes you'll ever see! Batman, Blue Beetle, Martian Manhunter, Guy Gardner, Black Canary, Mister Miracle, Dr. Fate, Booster Gold, Doctor Light, and the power of Shazam! Can this ragtag group work as a functioning unit to stop terrorists at the United Nations, a brigade of Rocket Reds, the Royal Flush Gang, the mysterious Gray Man, and other threats -- or will they succumb to in-fighting and bad jokes?"--P. [4] of cover.

From Booklist:

In 1987 the venerable superhero team the Justice League, a DC mainstay since 1960, took an unexpectedly loopy turn with an overhaul of its membership. The only original members retained were Batman and the Martian Manhunter. The ranks were filled out with second-string and somewhat eccentric characters like wisecracking Blue Beetle, strident feminist Black Canary, naïve Captain Marvel, showboating Booster Gold, and abrasive blowhard Guy Gardner. New plotlines were fairly routine—the team thwarted terrorists attacking the U.N. and fought superpowered foes like the Royal Flush Gang and the Gray Man—but a lighthearted approach and droll banter between the constantly bickering heroes made the revamped JL a surprise success in an era when “grim and gritty” dominated superhero comics. Subsequently, the series’ tone would become even more humorous and essentially parodic of the genre (and Kevin McGuire’s already appealing, fine-lined artwork would grow more assured), but the early issues collected here strike an appealing balance between the straitlaced and the zany. --Gordon Flagg
