For the Book club|
This post is to simply provide the scene central to the discussion for the book club thread. It is from JLA 46 and is the League discussing what to do with Batman, whose plans to disable them was used by Ra's against them. For comments that deal with the content of the scans, I encourage people to take part in the book club discussion instead posting them here. Link to the Book Club post is :

Ollie & Bruce: Crush or Competition? You decide.|
We know Ollie owes his Green Arrow persona to Bats, but do you know here was a time when Ollie didn't know that Bats was Bruce Wayne? Here from a JLA Giant from 1999 are 3 1/3 pages from a 10 page story that looks back at a time when Ollie got a little, let's say, obsessive with Bruce.

So I broke down and bought "Marvel Divas". Maybe because the reviews weren't that bad. Or they had the groove-tastic 70's variant cover. Or maybe it was the two three margaritas I downed at the restaurant down the street during lunch.
So I got to thinking. What if DC did a Divas/SATC type story? You know, have some of their lead women get together to discuss their love lives. All while doing some female bonding at a spa.
Oh wait. They already did.
3 and 1/3 pages from a 10 page story from JLA Giant number 2.

Comics you really should read...|
I'm in the process of dredging up a couple old recommendations of mine.
First on the list is JLA: The Obsidian Age. This was the crowning point of Joe Kelly and Doug Mahnke's run on JLA, a few years before Infinite Crisis. A mega-arc so big it took two trades to complete, this story could have been even better than it was. A little more refinement, a little more thought during the writing process, and Kelly would have crafted a masterpiece.
*sigh* Ah, well. Even the flawed version that we got was tons of fun.
Time travel, sorcery, and a substitute JLA (consisting of Nightwing, Green Arrow, Major Disaster, the Atom, Hawkgirl, Jason Blood, Zatanna, and others) stepping in to deal with a present-day crisis while the 'regular' JLA was dealing with a threat in 1000 B.C...that period's version of a Justice League (hereafter dubbed as the "Ancient League"), based out of ancient Atlantis, and acting under the impression "our" JLA intended to destroy the world. I'm just going to post the beginning...
( JLA v3: 7 pages from #66, 7 pages from #67, one from #70, two from #72. )

Request: Batman, Child Whisperer pt. 2 of 2|
Runespoor7 requested interaction between Batman and children. This post I've scanned 4 pages from JLA #106, "The Pain of the Gods," Nov. 2004, 22 pages.
I don't have #105 so I can't summarize this very well, but I'll try; feel free to fill in the gaps in the comments, gang. The issue opens with Superman and Wonder Woman stopping a super-powered boy from beating the krep out of a gang of schoolyard bullies. The kid is furious with Superman for "letting his father die," and punches Supes clear through three rooms of the school building. So, next step: Talk with his mom.
