Jeff Lemire continues his old school, feel-good DC heroes adventures in Justice League United #2, and I as a comics reader, 1960s comic book fan and cosmic maven could not be happier.

For a bit of fun, the adventures are really nail biting and the relationships take the complexity of the characters’ pasts and are built upon here. We have seen that since the Zero Issue, with the Green Arrow/Animal Man ongoing squabble taking center stage.

Bringing a breath of fresh air to the cosmic side of this unusal team, Supergirl arrives this issue. Also an old-time slabberknocker as Hawkman and Lobo square off. As Kara might say (or not): super!

And the New 52 coming of Ultra under the parenting, if you will, of Byth has been nothing but superb in an old-school way.

With all the time traveling, rebooting and villainy in the DCU, it is good to read a plain-old fun comic book.

Innovative, eh?
