Why hasn't DC ever released these? They are a much-beloved era of JLA and I'm betting they'd sell pretty well. Has DC ever stated why they haven't gotten around to more TPBs beyond issues 1-7? (I know, I know, 8-14(?) were TPB'd in the early '90s, but I'm talking the deluxe modern treatment.)
I want my Beetle, Booster, and Guy! Is there any hope?

Heh. "The Secret Gospel of Maxwell Lord" has entirely different connotations now, doesn't it?

Personally, I'd be collecting everything having to do with any sort of JL story arc that was well-recieved... at DC, that's like printing money.

Sales on the new edition of the first JLI tpb were dismal, leading DC to cancel their announced plans to put Secret Gospel of Maxwell Lord back in print.

Back then I was looking so forward to the new post-LEGENDS JUSTICE LEAGUE series after the horrible ending to JLDetroit. But after reading those first few issues I realized it was just played for laughs. I'd rather DC give us Steve Engelhart & Dick Dillin's run in a collected edition.

Its a little related. I heard that Legends was were the JLI first got together. But in Legends, it seems that the disbanding of the detroit team was done off panel. Did they show it elsewhere? In the JLA book maybe?

I did see the forming of the JLI team though. Cool. I want them back somehow, the beauty of this lineup is that they don't have to be called JLA. It is the members that mad eit good not the name. Who do we have now -

Booster Gold
Cap Marvel
Guy Garnder
Fire
Ice
Mr Miracle
Dr Fate

Why can't we have an ongoign with them. Not just miniseries.

Yeah, they claimed the name "Justice League" in one panel in LEGENDS #6.

Yes, in the last four issues of JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA vol. 1. Steel and Vibe were killed. Vixen and Gypsy survived the Ivo attacks and the team was disbanded.

Steve Englehart & Dick Dillin were on JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #139-#146 and #149-159.

Dick Dillin drew JLA #64-183 except for issues #67, 76, 85 and 93 which were reprints and issue #153 which was drawn by George Tuska. Dillin had actually almost completed #184 but passed away before he could finish it.
