    That's ths Amazon initial estimate. Cheapgraphicnovels, EBay and Amazon sellers usually mark it down to $50-60 upon realease. They get discounts fpr buying in bulk. Amazon itself tried to turn profits on everything.

    Ordered this today. I can't help but notice that, despite going out of it's way to include further appearences of the JLD in JLA and JSA Classified and in the Retro DC event, it doesn't feature all the JLD post series appearences. Left out was the JLD segment of JLA Incarnations by John Ostrander, a really good tale set in the midst of the COIE.

    Too bad. I find it amazing how underrated that excelent series is. It's the perfect companion to the more famous JLA Year One, by Waid and Kitson. Can't wait for the Omnibus to arrive, though.

    Peace

    I liked that series. And loved that they were given their moment to shine as a significant (although brief) incarnation of the Justice League. A bit revisionist but they burn bright then go out like heroes.




    Where from? FanArt? Love it!

    Currently, I'm not having much free time to read, and there are a few things on my nightstand, but I'm halfway through the Omnibus. Have to say it's a bit more dated then I was expecting. There are so many character developments trails that I could see explored in a more modern take. Many of the conflicts are, IMHO, too quickly and easily solved, such as the Vixen vs the Ox's conflict (the Ox could have made a fairly interesting long term opponent, with his ruthlessness and diplomatic connections) and Grampa Steel's micromanaging the team. There was a lot more Old Man Heywood could have done to cause headaches for the team. Still, it has been an enjoyable read. Chuck Pattan brought a brightness to the book with his clean cut art that is sorely missed after he left. Looking foward to having time toread more.

    Peace

    It pains me that every character on the team has appeared in live action in some capacity and DC Comics is not taking advantage of that.

    DC could literally refer to them as LoT or make them a JLA team but nope, the exposure for most of the characters is wasted.
    My priority is black female characters; everything else is secondary.

    If I had the opportunity I would love to write a forgotten story with this team.

    This team was really powerful when you think about it.
    I've seen your end and it starts with you challenging me.

    Maybe with Gypsy lost to some multiverse threat, Vibe dimension jumps from show to show, seeking the others, and J'onn to lead the improvised team.



    Also with J'onn sidelined as a JL founder in the comics, and in the upcoming JL movie, this would give him a moment to shine with his own ersatz League
    Maybe now add ^The Flash's Elongated-Man.

    This ^ not only would I give them their own crossover episode, but I would use it as a springboard to launch a new comic run starring this group.

    Pretty much what these were, I'd love to see more.

    Anyone read the Convergence Detroit League tie-in?

    There have been a few, most notably a JLA Classified arc and DC Retroactive, collected in the JLA Detroit Omnibus, and the two Convergance issues. The team was powerful, however, and that was probably one of the reasons the team didn't succeed, the writers always seemed to foccus on the newer characters, that were basically a girl that could blend into the background and create illusions, a one man earth-quake (and I'm being quite generous with Vibe here, considering how he used his powers in the past. The powers of the New 52 version were much better developed), a woman who could take the powers of the animals (and, as much as I liked Vixen - she was my favorite of the bunch - she never really made that intresting nor very impressive in the JLD) and a better looking but less powerful Cyborg 2.0, but that left out the most powerful members of the team, Zatanna and Martian Manhunter (probably among the most powerful of any team they are part of), as barely supporting characters that were always quickly taken out so the new guys could shine. That said, I wouldn't mind seeing the updated versions getting together again.

    Peace

    If Snyder does one of those "what would you like to see at dc comics questions again" I'm gonna mention this team and see if he replies.

    And as you say they were powerful even if they looked eccletic in style and just around each other.

    Has Elongated Man been used in the comics recently?

    With West Coast Avengers making a return. What are the chances of getting a JLD revival. A lot of people say that JLD was the worst incarnation of the League. But wow, I'm actually surprised that it has such a following. I think I might buy that omnibus.
    Imagine being proud to have negative traits. I can’t relate.

    Not familiar with it, has anyone read it?
    This issue of Back Issue Magazine cover story seems to be remembering this era of JL.

    Not surprisingly the image focuses on the team getting dissed, here by Batman, leaving them in his dust. LOL!

    And the article:
    BACK ISSUE #58 .... Plus the Justice League fans loved to hate: the “Detroit” team, featuring GERRY CONWAY, LUKE McDONNELL, CHUCK PATTON, and more. Also: CONWAY and GEOFF JOHNS go “Pro2Pro” on writing the JLA, ....
    "the Justice League fans loved to hate"

    That is how they are most often referenced.

    I mean that is pretty much the truth, although there is a way to approach the team with them owning that.
    Acknowledging that the world would never see them as a legit incarnation of the League.
    And have them almost behind the scenes (as a team J'onnzz secretly put together) being the ones who save the universe.
