    One thought on “All Star Comics Archives, Vol. 3”

    1. The art near the beginning is amazing, but by the end, it's become really cartoony (and Jack Burnley and Cliff Young, two of the best artists, did not contribute to the last issue in the volune #14). It's easy to understand why readers at the time didn't care for the Justice Battalion and it quickly reverted back to the Justice Society. The third story, in which they all get sent on rockets to other planets, is some antiquated fun, and there's a nice bit of continuity when the Spectre puts some [...]

    2. This book collects Issues 11-14 of All Star Comics containing the Adventures of the Justice Society of America. The book begins (as all great Golden Age archive books do) with an introduction by Roy Thomas who sets the tone for the time. The four bi-monthly adventures were the first to be written following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and the books reflect that as the Justice Society joins the war effort though in a different way from other heroes.Beyond the general World War II storyline [...]

    3. The Justice Society goes to war! This volume reprints All Star Comics issues 11 to 14, originally published between June and December of 1942. Written in the aftermath of Pearl Harbor, these stories feature the JSA facing off against the threat of the Empire of Japan and Nazi Germany. In "The Justice Society Joins the War on Japan", the mystery men (somewhat illogically) disband in order to join the armed forces in their civilian identities. But being a mystery man is a hard habit to break and o [...]

    4. The Justice Society joins the war effort with this volume of the All Star Comics Archives. These four issues mark the beginning of the Justice Battalion, an odd little add-on to the US military, in which the JSA went after Fifth columnists, spies, and helped out with humanitarian deeds (such as getting food pills to Europe). The stories are naturally filled with jingoism and the accompanying racism, but like I always say, you have to read things with an eye toward the era it was created before g [...]

    5. It amazes me that in this age of not only multi-issue but multi-title stories, the writers of these Golden Age tales took only six to eight pages to set up stories, characters, conflicts, and resolutions. The JSA continues to be my sentimental favorite super-hero team

    6. More great Golden age comic book stories, as the first super team fights various villains and despots.Brilliant stuff, with out a trace of grim and gritty.

    7. Collects four issues of All-Star Comics featuring the Justice Society of America.Notably for being the first issues published after Pearl Harbor, we see the JSA spring into action against Nazis and Imperial Japanese forces. In the first story, each JSAer puts aside his costumed identity and joins the US armed forces, only to find they must don their colorful attire in order to defeat the enemy's various plans. Hawkman's girlfriend, Shiera Hall, finds herself on a ship to the Pacific with none ot [...]
