    1. Sometimes the second-tier characters in a comic franchise are so much easier to relate to. I’m using the term “second-tier” somewhat loosely here, since Batman does make the odd appearance. However, the emphasis here is squarely on characters like Mister Miracle, Booster Gold, Blue Beetle, Captain Atom and The Martian Manhunter. It’s the Justice League, but not as we know it.This particular series is one I devoured as a teen. In fact, I suppose most of my DC “education” is from here, [...]


    2. If you're like me, you just picked this up on sort of a retro-flavored whim -- not because you give a fig about some weird Justice League incarnation from the 80s, but because this anthology marks the sort-of first appearance of Lobo(!), DC Comics' ultraviolent insterstellar marauder.I say "sort of" first appearance because Lobo actually got his start in OMEGA MEN, an even older, weirder space-tinged title that has since lost all remnants of whatever connective tissue originally held it to the D [...]


    3. There sure were a lot of crossovers when JLI was being published. Two more in this collection, I believe. That aside, this was a very silly book. Lord Manga Khan and his robots, L-Ron and K-Dikk are almost too silly, and will drive some people right around the bend.



    4. There sure were a lot of company wide crossovers back in the day. Invasion interrupts this trade a couple of times and has some impacts on volume 4 too. However, the Invasion crossover with Oberon is one of the best issues of the book. His fight with the mini-Khunds is fantastic. We also get Lord Manga Khan and L-Ron here which can be a bit overbearing especially with G'nort thrown into the mix. Plus, Lobo before he became unbearable. Batman's undercover trip to Bialya is a lot of fun. The book [...]


    5. Still good but the artwork begins to slip a bit and the writing gets a little less sharp. Of course, a bad comic book with Keith Giffen involved is still better than a number of other choices.This is about where I stopped collecting Justice League back when I was collecting the actual comic books.


    6. a perpetual mel brooks show. more weak stories hidden under a deluge of bad jokes and silly personalities. it got old real fast.


    7. Very funny and cracky. I loved this and I was laughing at least half of the time. And I love Booster and Beetle.


    8. My first experience reading the JLI, and I must say it was a fun one. Even though this iteration of the Justice League features a lot of second-stringer superheroes, a lot of them I knew of but I'd never read about before, they and the supporting characters, with compelling storylines and a lot of LOL moments, this book was extremely enjoyable to read. The humour is genuinely funny, it's almost like watching a sitcom starring superheroes!With a cast featuring Batman, Booster Gold, Blue Beetle, I [...]


    9. A good enough collection of classic Justice League International featuring the tongue-in-cheek, constantly joking and never taking anything seriously team of superheroes who have replaced the JLA.This book's team is pretty much the same, featuring Capt. Atom, Blue Beetle, GL Guy Gardner (whose bad attitude returns, unfortunately), Mr. Miracle, Big Barda, Martian Manhunter, Rocket Red and Booster Gold, but with the addition of Fire and Ice, fresh of the Global Guardians team. And while I enjoy re [...]


    10. Giffen and company started adding humor to the JLI and after awhile, it started to take over and DC's greatest heroes became a sitcom.This volume is the tipping point.There is enough big, cosmic adventures to distract from the hit or miss humor.Giffen is a solid comic book writer, but he is unable to stop himself once he decides to be funny.


    11. Sometime you just gotta have fun, even in the superhero world of stopping crime and evil. JLI is that fun answer to the superhero world. Nicely written and drawn stories make this an enjoyable read. Recommended


    12. This is where the series begins to shift from action to comedy. There's certainly plenty of action in this volume, but the menaces are getting more comedic and the tone of the book is certainly changing. It's still fun though!



    13. The League really seems to come together here (ironically) in a pair of storylines which keep them separated for most of the book.



    14. I've always enjoyed Giffen and DeMatteis' s take on the league, but if there is one weakness it feels very 80s to me. still, worth a read.



    15. This volume didn't do it for me as much as the previous two. It's funny and all, I just felt "meh" about the whole Lord Manga Khan thing.
