Justice League done in a manga style? Yes, please!
A young boy from Japan comes to Gotham City looking for his missing parents, and becomes the unwitting victim of a devious plot involving the Joker. Only Batman and the Justice League can solve the mysteries of the boy’s missing parents, and the enigmatic power leaking from magical ley lines around the globe.

I enjoyed reading this manga of the Justice League!
However, I didn’t like some of the characters. Batman has never been my favorite, and I HATE the Joker. I can’t even look at his ugly face. But I liked the story and the other characters. I would enjoy reading it more if it focused more on Superman, who is a favorite superhero of mine.
The artwork is wonderful and full of interesting angles! The black and white panels do a good job of keeping things clear, but some of the action scenes were too busy for the eye to make sense of what was happening in each panel. I mostly skipped over the fight scenes.

The plot kept me interested, and I especially loved the mystery of the missing parents, because it was heart-wrenching and emotional. I would like to read the rest of the volumes to find out what happens with those magical ley lines too.
