A while ago, I picked up this giant sized “JLA: Secret Origins” by Alex Ross and Paul Dini book in Tucson. The art is exquisitely done by the great Alex Ross and it really captures the lore and imagination of the Justice League that I loved as a kid. As far as secret origins are concerned, I feel like DC does a new one every couple of years. But that’s okay. The reimagining of timeless archetypes is a good way to remind us of the beauty of these stories. After all, we are standing on the shoulders of giants.
