Justice League: Road to Dark Crisis #1

The Justice League (at least most of them) are missing and presumed dead heading into DC's new Crisis event Dark Crisis. Justice League: Road to Dark Crisis #1 offers several short stories of heroes dealing with the news and a world where villains are emboldened after learning the League is gone. We get Nightwing giving Superboy comfort reminding him these heroes have died before and still found a way to return before the two team-up.

The other stories include Pariah acting manic and crazy (you know the usual), the other Flashes stepping up after Barry Allen's disappearance, Hal Jordan discovering the League is gone, and Stephanie Brown preventing a bored Nocturna from robbing a museum. The Pariah story is likely the most important to the larger arc (and also the least interesting), but the stories are fine even if they are pushing towards an event I'll admit I still don't yet care about.
