Justice vol. 2
I finished up the middle section of the Justice graphic novel series last night. Book two features a stunning Alex Ross cover with the villains - in a similar pose to the heroes on the cover of volume 1. I like that each villain is in the spot to the "matching" hero from the first cover (Bizarro for Superman, Joker for Batman, Cheetah for Wonder Woman, etc.). It gives it a nice theme going.
This volume covers issues 5 through 8 of the floppy comics in the series. The story continues as the heroes gather their forces to regroup in a secret location and to try and figure out what the heck the villains are up to. A lot of character interplay in these issues as well as some very stunning artwork. I really enjoy the whole painted aspect of this series and want to appreciate the time it took to do each and every panel.
