    1. Loved Alex Ross growing up His photo realistic paintings were around at a time when we didn t have 6 comic book films coming out a year, so his paintings were as close as we got in some cases to how these characters would look in real life I was very happy to hear DC would be bringing out a new edition of this Absolute book, since I hadn t read a lot of the tabloid stories that are collected here.Nearly 20 years later, his artwork still stands out as something special It does work best at times [...]


    2. Umwow The art in thisAlex Ross, you are my hero Spectacular, the style is like a painting, every frame a work of art And the stories are so interesting, trying to ground the heroes we know in a real humanity, a reality This is a breathtaking graphic novel, a great gift and just wonderfully done.


    3. Contains perhaps the best Superman story I ve ever read The art, by Alex Ross, is uniformly stunning in a way that honours the history of these characters, providing both a window to the past and a snowglobe effect, meaning that the essence of these characters are represented in a way that makes them timeless, very much in the style of Batman TAS The single most devastating panel in the entire book comes early, when Superman tries to feed the world The last incident which makes him give up is he [...]


    4. Obviously, no brainer, the art stands out in this collection Alex Ross used models and sketched painted each scene with such detail, the characters look simultaneously 2D and 3D, which is pretty much what superheroes are It is extraordinary to look at It is one of few places where Wonder Woman looks like what you imagine an should be not just eye candy, and not a muscle man with long hair, but a larger than life, gorgeous but imposing figure The story lives up to the art, and vice versa Paul Din [...]


    5. It s an art museum in a book Art Museum In a book.In all seriousness though, its no secret that painter Alex Ross has a deep affinity for all these characters, and it shows on every page In every panel.Paul Dini writes what could be described as human moral conundrums juxtaposed against these larger than life super heroes and their idealistic mentalities It works rather well.But even if the writing was bad which its not the artwork alone is worth the price of admission.


    6. Elmas de erinde ideallere sahip koruyucular n, a zlar n a t klar her an etrafa ya am sunduklar , ad m att klar her panele Michelangelo nun ruhunu yayd klar bir k lliyat.



    7. I wanted something special for book 150 for 2014 and settled on this one which I have as a hardcopy A combination of six Paul Dini Alex Ross collaborations Superman Peace on Earth, Batman War on Crime, Shazam Power of Hope, Wonder Woman Spirit of Truth, JLA Secret Origins, and JLA Liberty and Justice , this is probably my preferred primer for DC Comics heroes I m a sucker for well told origin stories, and the two page ones featured here are excellent This volume also contains very unique stories [...]


    8. I just want to shove this book in the face of every comic book writer or artist who assumes that imagining these heroes operating in the real ish world requires rebuilding them into dark and gritty purveyors of violence always one small step away from a mental breakdown yes, Miller, I am looking at you.Yes, yes, OK the world probably isn t quite as simple as presented here It is always clear to our heroes whether people are dastardly terrorists or plucky freedom fighters, whether governments are [...]


    9. The good Batman and Wonder Woman story The JL story conlifct, putting the Justice League against the world was very entertaining to watch Obviously, Alex Ross s art is majestic The concept of this stories super humans fighting humane problems, no supervillains.The bad I think that the weakest part of this stories are Paul Dini dialogues, they are childish sometimes, and other times they are overly dramatic Dini is telling a story of gods fighting humane problems, is a dramatic and grandiose stor [...]


    10. Fantastic Perhaps the best Justice League collection Alex Ross as artist, Paul Dini, writer Best match up ever.


    11. Just beautiful I had read the Shazam story before, and it is still my favorite, but the whole collection is tremendous Thoughtful, heartwarming, exciting stuff.



    12. Hace alg n tiempo que no le a un c mic de superh roes, y creo que esta lectura fue un buen regreso Desde hace tiempo he decidido leer los c mics del g nero como un registro de su tiempo me es m s interesante saber qu idealizaba la humanidad o Estados Unidos en ese entonces, que leer o ver, en caso de ser una pel cula una historia de acci n que resulta olvidable Si algunos c mics me parec an prescindibles, qu decir de sus adaptaciones al cine De hecho, la presencia saturada de los superh roes en [...]


    13. Absolute Justice League World s Greatest Superheroes In the spirit of Justice and Kingdom Come, Alex Ross and Paul Dini started a project to showcase individual superheroes, in unconventional situations Superman, being a relief good distributor instead of a defensive measure Bruce Wayne actually being a business entrepreneur than a vigilante Wonder Woman being shunned by the public instead of saving the day Or Captain Marvel giving way to Billy Batson to save the day for a change The tome is co [...]


    14. Beautiful art and excellent writing I rarely enjoy Superman stories, but I really liked this one Batman is my all time favorite hero, and I was very impressed by this comic Shazam was cool Wonder Woman was okay I loved the styling of the other JLA member s intros The full JLA tale was a great examination of the line between protector and overlord A must read for DC fans.



    15. I have super hero books because of Alex Ross than because of anything else Though his art is always a bit static, looking often like the photo referenced painting it is than like dynamically active comic art, I always enjoy his take on heroes I otherwise don t bother about His talent for theatric but not overblown expression is always enjoyable I didn t get any of these tabloid size books when they came out and wasn t that interested beyond looking at them in the comic shop where I worked when [...]


    16. Shocked Absolutely wonderful Most obvious is the outstanding artwork Each page warrants its own close examination and time Really really beautiful stuff But the stories were compelling as well A very realistic look at the kind of issues that could be faced in a world of super beings Wonder Woman s tale especially I thought was really touching and thought provoking It s true as some have said that some of it could be considered a little hokey or slightly cheesy in the attempt to be heart warming [...]


    17. Ever wonder what the major DC superheroes would do if they tackled actual real life problems, like starvation, civil unrest, or the spread of a highly contagious disease Paul Dini and Alex Ross teamed up to do just that through the release of six oversized graphic novels, collected in this attractive hardcover package It s a bit of a departure from a typical comic story in that there is no dialogue, no thought balloons There is introspective narration from the characters points of view that sit [...]


    18. A Deluxe Over Sized Absolute Edition collecting the Tabloid size stories by Paul Dini and Alex Ross.Great single stories set in a believable universe of DC s Mightiest and greatest Apart from the Justice League Tabloid , I had already bought the original tablo ds of these stories still, when they were assembled and packaged together in this nice slipcase hardcover which DC never refers to as an Absolute Edition, even though it matches their other Absolute books , well, you just know I wouldn t b [...]


    19. Paul Dini and Alex Ross have teamed up to show us something rarely seen in graphic novels and comic books superheroes fighting ordinary, but pressing global problems instead of many tentacled monsters and supervillians.Fans will be glad to see that the stalwarts of DC are all present Superman, Wonder Woman, Captain Marvel, Batman and the JLA plus its associate members.Although preachy undertones creep into some of the stories in this collection, the idea of superheroes tackling real world issues [...]


    20. Alex Ross y Paul Dini crean esta serie de historias, con los personajes mas famosos de DC, y los ponen a enfrentarse contra problemas grandes en nuestra sociedad Superman trata de vencer el hambre en el mundo, Batman intenta de una vez por todas deshacerse de el crimen en general llevandolo a la conclusion logica de que es imposible, sin importar cuanto esfuerzo ni cuanto dinero invierta , La Mujer Maravilla intenta enfrentar el abuso a las mujeres y el machismo contra ellas, Shazam acompa a y j [...]


    21. Simply put, this is beautiful Alex Ross, who s now a legend, shows why as he paints every single imaginable detail in such realistic incredibility Its amazing Somehow he creates an iconic look for each of these icons without making them look alike Obviously the selling point of this collection is the artwork by Ross but Paul Dini does a good job with each story focusing on a certain aspect of the hero While none of the plotlines are earth shattering or matter to the continuity of each hero they [...]


    22. This collection won t make best graphic novel lists because there isn t an epic storyline threaded together but it is a beautiful set of vignettes that give really thoughtful, sympathetic perspectives on characters that are usually far out of reach The tabloid format, children s book layouts, and the amazingly expressive art that Alex Ross can only produce make this a very visually captivating journey Paul Dini captured, very cleverly, the personal struggles and emotional burdens of Superman, Ba [...]


    23. Blah This is the first time I thought that someone was just trying to skate by on Alex Ross s art Usually they hitch his art to a grand story Here, it s basically JLA does charity work So it s a lot of HARD TO READ uplifting text placed over relatively uplifting images In some instances, the author seems to have nagging doubts that charity will not work In other instances, he seems to believe that charity can essentially perform miracles In both cases, he s unwilling to strongly present those vi [...]


    24. Just wow If you follow comics at all, you ve most likely heard the name Alex Ross His artwork is simply incredible I pretty much had to stop and marvel at it every time I turned the page Combine that with the writing of Paul Dini and you have a pretty fantastic team The stories deal with super heroes dealing with human problems There are no super villains with plots to destroy the world here Superman attempts to stop world hunger, Captain Marvel spends time at a children s hospital The stories [...]


    25. This collection was a satisfying read, overall All of the stories have some substance and do an exceptional job of posing several Justice League icons in the middle of Earth s politics There are no supervillains or evil masterminds at work.Alex Ross hyper realistic art continues to be exceptional and very communicative of characters emotions Personally, I like my comic art a bit stylized and less realistic, but it s hard not to be in awe of his creations.


    26. Some of the best comic book art you ll ever see but the stories were too cheesy for me I would have given this at least one star if they would have fought at least one real villian in this giant book Instead we get them dealing with world hunger, crime corruption, hope, truth, and a virus from outer space Nothing epic or anything to really get excited about What saved it though, was Alex Ross art.


    27. Good if a little pompous stories.The artwork is about the best you will ever see.My gripe, and its quite a major one, is the text Its gets lost in the artwork, and really detracts from the bookwork ordinarily the level of artwork would have me at 5 stars on its own IT looks like a conscious decision to go with the realistic artwork, but a v bad one in my view.
