Starting in 1997, Grant Morrison launched JLA (Volume 1) with artist Howard Porter, reinvigorating the team book and setting its course for the next decade. The popular title lead to spin-offs like Hourman (Volume 1) and Martian Manhunter (Volume 3) and the revitalized JSA in JSA (Volume 1). Leading in from Justice League: A Midsummer's Nightmare (Volume 1), this line-up includes many of DC's most recognizable heroes facing intergalactic threats and rewriting the future of the DC Universe. Morrison was followed by frequent guest writer Mark Waid.

This guide to the run of Grant Morrison writing for the Justice League is based around easily-purchased collected editions. For a new reader, it's very convenient to collect Morrison's entire run on JLA and associated titles.

JLA (Volume 1)

Aztek: The Ultimate Man (Volume 1): Written concurrent to JLA with Mark Millar, Aztek tells the story of a new superhero who is tricked into infiltrating the Justice League. The brief run is collected in JLA Presents: Aztek: The Ultimate Man.

Hourman (Volume 1) and JLA: Tomorrow Woman #1 : The character of Matthew Tyler was introduced as part of the DC One Million event and he briefly joined the Justice League during Morrison's run.
