The first volume of Justice League was all out action, forgoing much in the way of story. The second installment doesn't suffer from that weakness. It seems like the story has jumped forward in time a little and now the Justice League is established. The world loves these guys. However our super friends quickly learn that is is quite easy to fall off the celebrity pedestal.
It is great fun seeing these pristine icons get dirty and their individual reactions to the situation. Although at times it felt false and a little forced, it still succeed in making these 'gods' feel more human. You even get some internal group struggles, literally. After reading the first volume, I was looking forward to the second volume because of Jim Lee's artwork. Now I am looking forward to the third volume because I want to know where the Justice League will go now that they are on this darker path.

Speaking of Mr. Lee's artwork, you can't really find anyone better for action packed super hero action. He brings epic scale and power to the page. Since the first volume was so short on story, you really could just start reading on this volume without being lost.
"Johns and Lee are delivering what we wanted all along--our favorite characters in the same place, playing off one another and showing us how they compare and contrast."--"Newsarama " "Geoff Johns is crafting a new villain worthy of the great JLA villains of old. Lee still delivers some of the most sleek and powerful heroes in the industry."--"IGN" "Jim Lee is who he always is--the standard bearer of the industry's artwork. When one imagines in the abstract what a modern comic book should look like, the default setting is Jim Lee."--"Craveonline "
