March ComicConBox Features Exclusive JLA #1 Tyler Kirkham Variant


The March edition of Wizard World’s ComicConBox will feature a pretty awesome comic for longtime DC Comics fans.

Announced today by Wizard World and DC, the issue in question will be a special version of JLA #1 with an exclusive variant cover by Tyler Kirkham. We’re talking about the original JLA too, as in a reprint of the very first issue from Vol. 1 of the World’s Greatest Superheroes, originally published in November 1960 (though they made their debut appearance as the Justice League of America in Brave and the Bold #28 earlier that same year).

Not only is it a classic story that offers up the first appearance of the villain Despero, Kirkham’s cover is also a nod to another aspect of DC Comics history. As you can see here, it shows the original JLA members looking at their modern day counterparts through use of a crystal ball. That’s an homage to the very first JLA-JSA team-up, which began in JLA #21 and had the Justice League checking in on the Justice Society in similar fashion.
