Loose Canon Book Club: Justice: issues 1-12 by Alex Ross and Jim Krueger
Howdy y’all and welcome to the unofficial, hopefully soon official Loose Canon Book Club! This club will focus primarily on reading and discussing self contained stories in the DC world (with a few exceptions now and then). There are a lot of great Book Clubs as it is and I know it can be challenging to fit them all in to your week. This club is for the busy and the slackers . Every installment will give you a minimum of 2 weeks to tackle the story at hand and of course you can jump in whenever you finish.
In Justice, the Villains of the DC world have visions of the end of the world brought about by the Justice League. Being lead by Lex Luthor and Brainiac, they begin the seemingly impossible task of saving humanity from extinction. The members of the Justice League are suspicious to say the least and begin investigating their initiative to save humanity and get to the bottom of the cause of these visions. This story is a must read for any DC fan and even if you don’t get to reading it for this book club, definitely put it on your DCU comic list to read later.
This installment will go from Dec. 1-16.
Did you like the story, and have you read this story before?
Alex Ross is the best in the business when it comes to his artwork. It can be hard to pick a favorite piece of his work, so I’ll make it a little easier for this one: Which panels were your favorite in this story?
How do you feel about the Villains actions given the circumstances at hand?
Do you think this story would be worthy of a film adaptation?
Thanks for joining in on this unofficial Book Club and happy reading!
Have a great week and our next installment we’ll leap into The New Frontier by the late and great Darwyn Cooke!
