"Ultraman, Owlman, Power Ring, and Johnny Quick rule the world without mercy or opposition. But their own personal utopia is threatened by the sudden arrival of appearance of Superman, Batman and the others in the Justice League. Realties clash as the Justice League travels to an alternate reality to face off against distorted mirror images of themselves." - DC

Omar's selection for this month's Comic Conspiracy Comic Book Club is JLA: Earth 2 by Grant Morrison, with art from Frank Quitely.

I read this title back in March and really enjoyed it. If you have been following Trinity War you know that the Crime Syndicate has just made their first New 52 appearance . So, this is a good story to check out going into Villain's Month from DC.

One of the things that I love about DC is the fact that they have embraced the concept of alternate realities. Morrison does a fantastic job of taking the Justice League and having them face off against evil versions of themselves. I hope you listeners out there pick it up and give it a try.

We will discuss this title at length on Episode 126 of the Comic Conspiracy.

  1. I'd love to red this but I'm a digital reader and I can't seem to find it up on Comixology? Hopefully they get it up there for villains month. Either way looking forward to hear you guys talk about it.

    1. It isn't up on Comixology; I checked. I do hope they add it soon, because like you said, it would be a great book to have available for Villains Month. Especially, since Trinity War ended with the appearance of the The Crime Syndicate of America from Earth 3.

  2. I think I prefered the Justice League tv series over the comic, which was one of the reasons why I bought the comic.

    1. I haven't seen the TV show, but I did enjoy the comic. Don't forget to vote for this comic book club selection. :)

  3. To add to my comment about the Justice league tv series of Earth 2, it's called "A Better World". It's in Season 2.
