Justice League No Justice #1 (of 4)

Justice League: No Justice #1

DARK NIGHTS: METAL left the DCU transformed in ways both terrifying and wondrous-and only the Justice League is strong enough to face the threats to come...or are they? Four giant beings comprised of the universe's major energies-Mystery, Wonder, Wisdom and Entropy-who sustain their life force by devouring planets are on their way to destroy the planet of Colu. The only way to take down this unimaginable threat is for the superhero teams of Earth to forget everything they thought they knew and form new alliances.

 

What secrets of the cosmos will Superman, Martian Manhunter and Team Mystery discover? Will Zatanna, Wonder Woman and Team Wonder awaken alien magic they cannot put back to sleep? What can Harley Quinn possibly have to teach the rest of Team Wisdom? And most importantly...why the heck is Beast Boy on Team Entropy with Lobo and Batman? Find out all this and much more in the most exciting, bombastic event of summer 2018!

In this kickoff issue to the four-issue miniseries, after Brainiac systematically takes down all of Earth's super-teams, the last thing the League expects is for him to ask for their help! Without their aid, his home planet and the universe are both doomed!

For the Covers Alone!

Gallery Quality Art on the Cover of Comic Books.

Domino #2 Cover by Greg Land

through Marvel Comics. I'm not normally a big Greg Land fan but he killed it on two covers this week. Not only is Domino fire, but the background is made up of some great detail on the guns.

Exiles #3 Cover by Javier Rodriguez

Rodriguez isn't a name I recognize, but he did an amazing job with this retro Captain Peggy Carter.

Star Wars: Darth Vader #16 Cover by Giuseppe Camuncoli and Elia Bonetti

Through Marvel Comics. Camuncoli slays it again with this gorgeous cover, and Bonetti comes in to lend a hand on this one. It has detail, an ominous tone, and the colors are perfect.

The Incredible Hulk #716 Cover by Greg Land

Through Marvel Comics. Another Greg Land! This one catches a great action scene mid-battle, and with a great assortment of characters to boot.

Deadpool #300 Cover by Scott Koblish

Through Marvel Comics. HOLY. DETAIL. There are 300 Deadpools on this wraparound cover. THREE. HUNDRED. The time it must've taken boggles my mind. Huge props to Koblish.

Venom #1 Cover by Ryan Stegman

Through Marvel Comics. There are a ton of Venom Covers for this first issue by Cates and Stegman did a great job with this. When Venom is drawn well, he's one of the coolest characters ever. Add a great background behind him, and you've got a winning cover.

Venom #1 Cover by J. Scott Campbell

Through Marvel Comics. Campbell. Need I really say more? While it's not one of his best, Campbell is always one of the best.

Venom #1 Cover by Aaron Kuder

Through Marvel Comics. Most of the Young Gun variants have been meh thus far but Kuder kills it on this Venom. I love the perspective and the lighting.

Venom #1 Cover by Paolo Rivera

Through Marvel Comics. Rivera took a simple approach to this cover AND KILLED IT. This is one of the best portrayals of Venom I've ever seen. He didn't go nuts with the tongue, teeth, or wild symbiote. He just focused on making him one scary figure.

Barbarella #6 Cover by Dave McCaig

Through Dynamite. McCaig gives us a beautiful reason to pick up a Barbarella Comic. He uses a unique color for the water but it works.

Dejah Thoris #4 Cover by Mike McKone

Batgirl and The Birds of Prey #22 Cover by Terry & Rachel Dodson

Batgirl and The Birds of Prey #22 Cover by Yasmine Putri

Scooby: Apocolypse #25 Cover by Howard Porter
