Take a look back at the “International” era of the Justice League that brought new faces, more titles and lots of laughs to the team.
Check out part one, part two, part three, part four and part five of this series.
Folks, we’ve got a lot to get through today, so I’m going to give it to you straight: Some of this stuff was just a mess. Much of it was good and some of that was great.

To see the pages come alive with such glorious artwork has been an absolute joy.”
