Want a free copy of Justice League: Origin by writer Geoff Johns and artist Jim Lee? You are in luck because DC Comics has released a Special Edition Volume 1, consisting of issues #1-4 for free as part of the iBooks store’s Great Free Book section. It is only available for a limited time according to .

According to the description:

In a world where inexperienced super heroes operate under a cloud of suspicion from the public, loner vigilante Batman has stumbled upon a dark evil that threatens to destroy the earth as we know it. Now, faced with a threat far beyond anything he can handle on his own, the Dark Knight must trust an alien, a scarlet speedster, an accidental teenage hero, a space cop, an Amazon Princess and an undersea monarch. Will this combination of Superman, The Flash, Cyborg, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman and Aquaman be able to put aside their differences and come together to save the world? Or will they destroy each other first?

This new origin story is part of DC Comics the New 52 reboot that began in 2011. According to , the reboot has not necessarily been a success for DC Comics. They could be trying to generate more interest in the brand with this free offering and introduce the series to people who may not have been willing to pay to check it out. If that is the case, it is good that the company released a storyline that is heavy on Batman, a character whose books are consistently good sellers.
