    The Justice League of America has a lavish and rich history that spans decades. Dozens of comic book characters have appeared within the pages of the various Justice League titles and it's almost as if you need a scorecard to keep track of who's who. Well in JLA - Z, that's just what DC has done, provided a comprehensive list and description of the various heroes and villains of the Justice League. Written by former DC Editor Mike McAvennie, this three-part series is the perfect 4 -1 - 1 to the inner workings of the JLA world as well as answering questions about his career in comics.

    (excerpt)

    THE PULSE: Whose idea was it for the JLA-Z miniseries?
    McAVENNIE: I’d say it was mine, though I don’t think my editors, Ivan Cohen and Steve Wacker, would appreciate it, since they came to me with the idea.

    THE PULSE: What is JLA-Z?
    McAVENNIE: Simply put, it’s a primer of sorts that offers quick, capsule-sized information regarding members past and present, plus JLA allies and enemies. It was conceived to accompany the release of the JLA/AVENGERS miniseries, but it’s a good reference book for JLA fans looking to find out info on a character.

    Anticipation continues to rise as the long-awaited JLA/Avengers crossover nears, and DC Comics will showcase its legendary super-team with JLA-Z, a three-issue handbook featuring an in-depth look at the heroes - and enemies - of the Justice League.

    In all its incarnations, the JLA has been one of comics' most enduring teams, generating numerous classic tales from a host of top creators. With what may be another defining story of the League's existence on the horizon, new and current readers alike should be interested in its storied history, making this an excellent companion to the upcoming crossover. (Fans of DC's past reference works, including Who's Who in the DC Universe, should also be eager to add this mini-series to their libraries.)

    JLA-Z #1 (JUL030198, $2.25) will launch the mini-series with biographical information and statistics about characters from Amazo to Green Arrow, in alphabetical order. Written by Mike McAvennie, this and subsequent issues will feature renderings of the heroes and villains by such name artists as Jim Lee, Scott McDaniel, Scott Kolins, Rob Haynes, Patrick Gleason, Dan Jurgens, Jeff Parker, Pascual Ferry, Tom Nguyen, Peter Pachoumis, Scott Williams, Christian Alamy, and others.

    Additionally, each cover of the series will feature one part of a triptych including every member of the JLA family, a spectacular image - first seen in a recent issue of Wizard: The Comics Magazine - by fan-favorite Phil Jimenez.

    The book is slated to ship on September 3.
