One of the best comics collections I have read. It was a really cool story of how the team gelled.

Justice League of America: Omega collects issues #49-53 of Justice League of America and issue #1 of Starman/Congorilla (all originally published between 2010 and 2011). Like most DC hardcovers this one comes in unfinished black boards with glued binding. Extras are limited to reproductions of variant covers.

Like the previous volume of James Robinson's Justice League (Justice League of America: The Dark Things), Omega is poorly plotted and incredibly light on character development. Indeed, the characters featured here are one-dimensional versions of their usual selves--with the exception perhaps of Congorilla and Starman, who barely feature in the graphic novel outside of their single-issue story. The story's logic also borders on the nonsensical (if the new villain Omega is so powerful, why doesn't he use his power? where did the Dark Supergirl outfit come from? does Tangent Green Lantern's involvement serve any purpose except to supply the book's trick ending?).

As for the the Justice League art (by Mark Bagley and Pow Rodrix), it's pretty ho-hum. Thankfully, Brett Booth's work on the Starman/Congorilla story is outstanding. His figures are expressive, his layouts interesting, and his action sequences exquisite.

If you disliked Dark Things, you'll dislike this book too. The Starman/Congorilla story redeems the book a little; nevertheless, your money's probably better spent elsewhere.

The Lightning Saga was the first volume of JLA then I thought i needed to complete the whole collection. I just checked in Wikipedia and then found all the volumes in Amazon. Awesome!!!

I brought this for Brett Booth's amazing art and sadly he only draws 1 measly issue in this entire trade paperback. I'm so disappointed by this revelation that I could almost run into the little girls room and have a breakdown!!!! I can't even stop he tears form coming. That's how bad it is.

The problem with this book was poor editing by DC Comics. James Robinson, when revamping this JLA series, had a whole palette of characters at his disposal then very quickly as he was methodically trying for character building, he had to undo and revamp the line up. I think he had vision to where this title was heading and if given the time, would of been a great run. Alas, the new 52 threw a monkey wrench in the whole thing. Still, OMEGA was not a bad body of work, but to know what was FULLY going on (Supergirl is the black costume) one had to have read Supergirl and other such titles.
