JLA - Z AND EVERYTHING IN-BETWEEN

BY JENNIFER M. CONTINO
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.
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 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.
