The DC Universe Rebirth era has seen the rise of a second Justice League, after Batman was inspired by Killer Frost’s heroic turn during the crossover with the Suicide Squad. While Batman and the regular Justice League seem like remote gods to the general public, the new Justice League of America was meant to be a more approachable group of heroes…and Lobo, who is absolutely not approachable. Seriously, don’t bother the Main Man.
Together with Batman, Lobo, Killer Frost, Black Canary, the Ray, the Atom, and Vixen have revealed their team to the people of Earth. So far, they’ve had limited success winning over the hearts and minds of an understandably skeptical public. Again, Lobo could be a problem, even if he hasn’t erupted into mega-violence yet. He is a bit of a monster even under the best of circumstances.
So, what better place for a monster than the Valley of Monsters? In this exclusive preview from Justice League of America # 8, the team makes a surprising discovery when they venture far beyond their borders. And getting home may not be as easy as they thought.
This issue was written by Steve Orlando with art by Felipe Watanabe. Additionally, Watanabe was also the primary cover artist and the open order variant cover was drawn by Doug Mahnke. Here’s the official description from DC Comics:
“THE MAN FROM MONSTER VALLEY” part one! While fighting the forces of the malevolent super-science outfit known as Skull, the League discover a secret valley deep in the Russian Tundra, home to Makson, a lone human male raised by fantastic creatures. Learning his true identity, the JLA endeavors to reunite Makson with mankind, his family, and his birthright. But not everyone wants the mysterious savage to come home…
Justice League of America # 8 will be released this Wednesday, June 14, in comic stores everywhere.
