Almost Hidden – Justice League America vs. Despero!

Even with this large amount of comic books that have been collected in trade paperbacks, there are still a number of great comic books that have never been reprinted (I’d say roughly 60% of them are DC Comics from the 1980s through the mid-1990s). So every day this month I will spotlight a different cool comic book that is only available as a back issue. Here is an archive of the comic books featured so far.

I want you folks to e-mail me at bcronin@comicbookresources.com with your suggestions for comics that I should feature this month. I’d like to see what you all would like to see get more attention.

After featuring the other two major battle storylines from the Justice League International years (the two JLE ones), I figure it is only proper to also spotlight the storyline from Justice League America where the league faces off against Despero! The issues were courtesy of Keith Giffen, JM DeMatteis, Adam Hughes and Joe Rubinstein.

Enjoy!

So here ya go, Cereno and MacDonald’s tale of one of the toughest U.S. Presidents of all-time, Theodore Roosevelt!
