Yesterday, the newest version of the Justice League made its comic store debut in the pages of JUSTICE LEAGUE UNITED #0. Set within the frozen isolation of Northern Ontario, Canada after the events of Forever Evil, the first issue offers a unique take on a super team crafted by the impeccable creative team of Jeff Lemire and Mike McKone. As most fans likely know, it’s rare that a comic debuts with a “zero issue.” We’re more accustomed to seeing new titles launch with an issue #1.
