The Justice League has always been about loyalty, friendship and teamwork. But it's also about Justice. When Green Lantern challenges his teammates to focus on that aspect of the name in the wake of the death of Martian Manhunter and Batman's disappearance, he finds himself on the ground floor of a new team's formation. GL, Green Arrow, Supergirl, Atom, Shazam, Congorilla and Starman unite to take the fight to the villains in the first part of a seven-part mini-series from writer James Robinson and artist Mauro Cascioli. Do you really need more convincing? Probably not.

I’ll tell ya, by sending out a challenge to all of our monthly cover artists to go wild on their covers for the month of August. WOW! Just check out some of the results. I’d say these guys kicked butt (again!).

Hey everybody – Senior Story Editor Ian Sattler here. It’s almost hard to put into words how excited I am right now. I’m not talking about winning the championship in my fantasy basketball league -- and that was pretty awesome. I’m not talking about the huge sandwich I had for lunch that was totally killer. I’m not even talking about my copy of Van Halen that I found last night, which is an all-time classic. No, I’m excited because working at DC Comics right now is amazing!
