Comics superstar Geoff Johns pens the stunning finale to his monumental four-year run on the World’s Greatest Heroes, aided by acclaimed illustrators Jason Fabok and Francis Manapul.
THE FINAL BATTLE
In the aftermath of Darkseid’s death, the members of the Justice League have received immense power—the power of the Gods! Superman, Batman, Flash, Shazam, Green Lantern and Lex Luthor have been transformed, gifted the abilities of the New Gods. Even for superheroes, this near omnipotence is an unfathomable amount of power.
With her teammates’ humanity slipping away in the face of their newfound abilities, Wonder Woman must fight to save them all from destruction at the hands of the Anti-Monitor. To defend her world, she’ll have to seek help from the Justice League’s greatest enemies…the Crime Syndicate!
The conclusion to the DC event of the year, JUSTICE LEAGUE VOL. 8: DARKSEID WAR PART 2, collects JUSTICE LEAGUE #45-50 and JUSTICE LEAGUE: DARKSEID WAR SPECIAL #1.
