Justice League of America is coming back in February. But before the flagship title returns to shelves everywhere, DC is giving us some treats to tide us over beforehand by releasing 4 separate one-shots focusing on certain characters to establish the new Rebirth title. The four characters that will begin the new roster are The Atom, Vixen, The Ray, and Killer Frost!

They make four bold statements that form the foundation of a team that will bring justice to places that have given up on hope; places that thought heroism would never find them. The Justice League of America goes there! They explore the Microverse, the Hidden Cities, the worlds within worlds; they go to the other side of the map and explode forward with the new face of Heroism.This is a Justice League that looks like America, that proves Heroism can look like ANYTHING and ANYONE.From February 1960 to February 2017.
