The trick is in deciding which stories from the JLA’s vast continuity to adapt. Year One, a 12-issue maxi-series by Mark Waid, would make a good jumping-off point; it’s a refined look at the League’s formation, focusing on the five of the original members (Flash, Green Lantern, Aquaman, Martian Manhunter, and Black Canary), their developing friendships, and the alien force that ultimately makes them the world’s last, best hope ref.: Journey between London and Paris during that perilous time known as "The French Revolution". This is a story of two men that look alike - one in danger of being beheaded by the guillotine, and the other, a hero that sacrifices his own life for his friend.

Becky Greenhow: I got interested in graphic novels due to my daughter’s reading disability and her abhorrence of literature (GASP! Despite having a very large YA fiction collection of my own, I was inexperienced with the graphic genre, and wanted something that would engage students (my daughter especially) with high interest/ age appropriate content, low vocab, visual cues for comprehension, and strong (mostly girl) heroes , source: Scanning through the list, I noticed that there were a lot of adaptations of novels, something that I’m a big fan of. Graphic adaptations can draw kids into titles they might not have given a second look before.
