Justice League Unlimited #1 - 2005

sgAs everyone knows, Justice League was supplanted by the amazingly-expansive, DC Fanboy Dream Show Justice League Unlimited, so the comic quickly followed suit.

While I was sad that my hero Aquaman would probably be showing up even less now that he had so many more heroes to compete with, the overgrown fanboy in me was tickled that I'd get to see characters like The Shining Knight, Zatanna, and B'Wana Beast(B'Wana Beast!) on a TV show. I think Timm and Co. have single-handedly kept a stable of third or fourth-tier DC heroes viable for a whole 'nother generation.

Anyway, JLU the comic kept up the fine tradition of solid, fun stories, perfect for kids of all ages:
"Divide & Conquer" by Aam Beechen, Carlo Barberi, and Walden Wong
"Poker Face" by Beechen and Ethen Beevers
"Small Time" by Beechen, Barberi, and Wong
"Local Hero" by B
eechen, Barberi, and Wong
"Monitor Duty" by B
eechen, Barberi, and Wong

...these stories featured the main JLU members, plus appearances by heroes like Captain Atom, Zatanna, The Huntress, Firestorm, The Atom, Booster Gold, Blue Beetle, even Adam Strange! Whoo-hoo!
