In the late 1980s, writers Keith Giffen and J.M. DeMatteis redefined the Justice League of America with these unique, humorous tales, collected for the first time since their original comic-book publication.

With Batman, Green Lantern Guy Gardner, Blue Beetle, Booster Gold and other quirky heroes of the DC Universe, the team battles the colony of spaceships known only as the Cluster, then must track their missing comrade, Mister Miracle to the dread planet Apokolips. And when our heroes arrive back on Earth, they must contend with the new Queen Bee and the return of Lobo.

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
