Priest's Justice League Arc Is Not Called "Lost", It's "The People Vs. The Justice League"

Today sees the much-anticipated publication of Justice League #34, the first of Christopher Priest's run on the series, with Pete Woods as artist.

The series has been solicited as "Lost" – and we'll run the solicitations below, but on publication it's called "The People Vs The Justice League". And with this issue, dubbed "Three Rooms", we start to see why…

A perfect storm of three major events hit at once, a cosmic attack and a natural emergency and a hostage-taking incident. And a Batman who hasn't slept for three days  running the show.

And running into interference from the general population…

And the next issue? Teased as "The breaking of Batman continues…"

"JUSTICE LOST" part four! As public confidence in the League continues to fall, strained relationships within the team are set aside when Simon Baz is kidnapped by the mysterious figure known as the Fan: a zealous Justice League acolyte who was inspired by the team as a youth and who now deals death to the League's enemies. The Fan knows literally every detail about the League membership's powers and tactics, and easily turns their own systems and resources against them "for their own good."
