This week, on the Major Spoilers Podcast Stephen, Rodrigo, and Matthew take a look at Giffen and DeMatteis’ Justice League International, Volume 1.
In the late 1980s, writers Keith Giffen and J.M. DeMatteis redefined the Justice League of America with these unique, humorous tales, collected for the first time since their original comic-book publication.

JUSTICE LEAGUE INTERNATIONAL Vol. 1 collects the first seven issues of Giffen and DeMatteis’s run.
