Our Justice League International superseries finishes up with a double-header as we read both volumes of “Generation Lost” by Judd Winnick with art from Keith Giffen, Aaron Lopresti, Matt Ryan, and more. We talk about the big 24-issue last hurrah of the pre-New52 JLI, from the awesome time travel subplot to the epic struggle between Booster Gold & Maxwell Lord. Plus, why is it that strong female characters always gotta have big boobs? For more information on past or future shows, visit www.AtomicPoweredSuperCast.com!
For our 150th episode we kick off our second ever superseries by reading Justice League International from 1987. This “cult” classic by keith Giffen, JM DeMatteis, and Kevin Maguire countered the late-80’s trend toward dark and gritty by showing us the heroes behind the masks and their everyday interactions. The result is a perfectly-executed gem of a DC comics sitcom. It’s an incredibly fun read and is the perfect way to kick off this set of five JLI episodes.

This ‘book may only be 80 pages, but make no mistake: it’s a seriously huge piece of work. We talk about The dramatic death, the incredible buildup through Beetle’s narration, and of course, Batman’s ear. Wait, Batman’s ear?
