    We have a few copies of Justice League available in the library system, so you could try to reserve a copy of it on your library card. I can't guarantee that you will get it in enough time, but it is absolutely worth a shot. Also, next time you are in the library be sure to check out the othe New 52 books that I should have on display soon. They may not necessarily be the ones that I've recommended on this, but reading those will still allow us to discuss the series as a whole.

    Do I need to buy it?

    I thought that we might try something new. I've only recently started to read superhero comics, and I've found that the New 52 series is a great place to begin.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
