THE CREATIVE TEAM: Keith Giffen and J.M. DeMatteis writing (Giffen plotting and DeMatteis writing dialogue), with Kevin Maguire on pencils. Inked by Al Gordon & lettered by Bob Lappan.
JUSTICE LEAGUE ROLL CALL: Batman, Black Canary, Martian Manhunter (J’onn J’onnz), Blue Beetle (Ted Kord), Green Lantern (Guy Gardner) Mister Miracle (Scott Free), Captain Marvel & Booster Gold. Oh, and I suppose Dr Fate counts in this because he finally bothered to turn up in the main series!
GUEST STARS: The Creeper
THE STORY: In Stone Ridge, Vermont, a being called the Gray Man is angry, angsting, and turning the townsfolk into copies of himself by stealing their dream energy. Dr Fate confronts him, in a long and dramatic conversation about mystic whatsits which is honestly so boring I could barely focus on the words, and covers half the issue.
However, this isn’t one you can skip, because the OTHER half of the issue features one of the all-time classic scenes of Justice League International’s history, in which Guy Gardner finally pushes Batman too far, and Batman knocks him unconscious with a single punch.
