i just finished reading the six part Darwyn Cooke's New Frontier series. here's a link to the pretty cover art, though it doesn't include the TPB pic of J'onn J'onzz standing around in his detective getup, smiling at the television set with junk food all around him.

it's recycled material, silver age founding of the Justice League and whatnot. But like X-Men, the fun and the heartache lies in the endless well-placed cameos. i haven't read a lot of the comics but i know enough of the universe and have watched enough cartoons to realize how eerie and satisfying it is to watch origins unfold even if it's for the thousandth time.
