This was basically a really elaborate take on the Total Justice action figure line, right? Super-Heroes with rad tech-armor? I'd like to read this for the pictures... for free... perhaps at my local library.

I own most of these issues, and there isn't much J'Onn J'Onzz in there, but what is whets my appetite something fierce. I'd hope his 1981 two page JLA/JSA Reunion spread from Justice League of America #195 will be in there, unless the jerks save it for volume 2. Regardless, they promised the postcard set, which offers one of the most glorious renditions of the Martian Manhunter ever committed to paper, which I really must post soon. Imagining that blown up blows my mind, and I don't own his Detroit League postcard, either. Still, $40 for material I already got? Probable pass.

I was tempted to buy these JLI reprints, even though I own the issues, and even with J'Onn's crumby re-colored red eyes. However, I found a copy of the first new trade at Half Price Books, and they bypassed shiny paper stock for something about as good and possibly worse than my 80s copy of the collection. Pffft!
