By Noelle Webster Tuesday, December 16th, 2014



Each week, DC Comics will be releasing a free—that's right, FREE—digital comic book issue featuring a sample chapter from one of our 25 Essential Graphic Novels as well as sample pages from the 2014 Essentials catalog. These special issues, which will be available for free for one week, are ideal for new fans looking to learn more about DC Universe and its mature readers imprint Vertigo, and provide the perfect reading guide for those looking to wade the waters of DC Entertainment's extensive library of graphic novels and collections.

This week: JLA #1!

Critically acclaimed writer Grant Morrison is responsible for many of the greatest Batman tales including BATMAN AND SON, BATMAN, INCORPORATED, and ARKHAM ASYLUM, as well as the Superman classic ALL-STAR SUPERMAN. So it’s unsurprising that his Justice League revamp, JLA, ushered in a brand new era for DC’s finest that changed the dynamics of the 90s superhero.

Renegade angels, alien invaders, and robot infiltrators. Sometimes, even the World’s Greatest Superheroes face threats too great for one man…or woman…or alien. DC’s pantheon of champions—Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, the Flash, Green Lantern, Aquaman and Martian Manhunter—are finally united as the JLA.

Did you watch the amazing television crossover event featuring Arrow and The Flash? Imagine that, but on an even bigger scale. Plus, this is a perfect way to get ready for the upcoming movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, so pick up DC ESSENTIALS: JLA #1 for FREE starting December 16 until December 22 by clicking here!
