The story begins with the destruction of the Earth, despite the best efforts of the Justice League. It is slowly revealed that this is a dream shared by the League's enemies, apparently foreshadowing a great disaster brought about by Earth's over-reliance on its heroes. As a result, the villains decide to use their substantial powers to solve world problems and empower humanity. Utopia appears to be at hand, but at the heart of it, the heroes know that something isn't right. The compromising of their secret identities and subsequent attempts on their lives lead them to uncover an insidious plan that, frankly, only ended up confusing me.
At the heart of JUSTICE is Alex Ross' love of the Super Friends, and as such, we get classic '70s versions of our favorite heroes and villains; not just the core Super Friends, but also supporting members, as well as the Doom Patrol and the Metal Men. The characterizations are excellent, and the creators do get some neat ideas onto the page. Unfortunately, these various bits are mired in a tedious narrative that ups the ante at every turn, so that by the time I reached chapter 8, I was ready for the story to end. There are so many ways in which Krueger and Ross could have streamlined this story, eliminating some dead ends and tightening the plodding conclusion. Artwise, it's difficult to appreciate Braithwaite's contribution. He is an accomplished artist in his own right, and I'm a huge fan of his, so it would have been nice if his style weren't completely hidden by Ross' paints. On the other hand, Braithwaite's jarring and awkward layouts really make it difficult to follow what's happening. Cuts between scenes are not handled well - they are extremely abrupt, to the point that I had to constantly go back to make sure that I hadn't missed a page. Some objective oversight of this project might have helped to smooth things out, but I guess editors are hesitant to say "no" when Ross is involved.
I can't help but to compare the overall product with the grand mess that is Marvel's Secret Wars, as there are numerous similarities between the two (even the toys!), but with JUSTICE, I at least enjoyed the better part of the ride. This was such an ambitious project, and it does fare much better than most of Krueger and Ross' collaborations, but ultimately, JUSTICE comes across as an indulgent pet project of the creators, rather than something done for the readers.
This edition covers JUSTICE no. 1 to 12 and is a definite bang for your buck, housed in a sturdy hard cover.

But you know what? That's just the begining...
The huge cast, the smart dialogue and the complex and detailed plot are really to admire.
It does work excellent for a long time comics fan, since there are a lot of cameos and referential jokes, but the good thing is that it works really fine for a newcomer.
The book feature al the iconic DC characters beign hunted by an organized army of supervillains and ignored by the world they saved many times.
The entire Justice League falls at last, and the main story is how the hereos manages to stand up again.
It does have all the non-stop action, but also it does explores a lot of ethics and political subjects.
Imagine JLA: Tower of Babel mmeets Avengers: Under Siege and you can figure out what kind of epic story JUSTICE is.
This could work as a perfect prelude to Kingdom Come, since not just the art, but the characters and the story elements are pretty much the same.
And saying that you can figure how good this book is.
The story at its most basic is your classic Justice League versus Legion of Doom type scenario. The scheme cooked up by the villains this time leaves them feeling menacing without being ridiculous. The book features a large array of characters from various teams and uses most of them to great effect. Even smaller less well known heroes get their time to shine.
The art of the book is breathtaking, showing an incredible level of detail and care that you just don't see in your usual monthly comics.
Overall I have nothing bad to say about this book. If you are a fan of DC's heroes then you will probably find something to enjoy about this book.
the story was very very good. Sometimes I felt as if it could have been a little better and due to the size of this graphic novel sometimes it felt a little rushed. None the less the story was very very good and a great read. I loved every bit of it.
As for the art sometimes I felt as if it would reach out of the page and shake my hand. This was much better than Ross's work on kingdom come. The work was so good it was nearly scary. Maybe the pencils from Doug Braithwaite helped or something cause this was noticeably better than kingdom come. This is possibly the best comic art I've ever seen.
in the end I gave this 5 stars. one of two little draw backs but one of the best reads I have had in a long while. I would recommend buying this.
