In the first half of this trade, which climaxes with JSA #50 (David Goyer's last issues as co-writer), the team faces off against Mordru (this JSA's first villain), Eclipso (the Spectre's nemesis), and Obsidian (Sentinel/Green Lantern's son). I really like this version of the evil spirit Eclipso--JSA's former archivist Rick Montez hates the spirit, yet struggles to harness its power.
Like most JSA stories, there are lots of great character moments. Here it's Sentinel's relationship with his kids...more

An enjoyable book, but I'm pretty muddled now after reading a few of them out of order. Writing a review of this one a couple of weeks after I read it is quite tricky.

The main “Princes of Darkness” arc is great big-picture Goyers & Johns with many enemies and friends alike [7/10]. The shorts that finish the book off are generally good, with the Crimson Avenger story being particularly strong [8/10] and the Thanksgiving story being a bit weak [6/10].

I really liked this collection. It had the JSA versus Mordru, Obsidian,and Eclipso and led in to the Black Vengeance collection. Geoff Johns' JSA trades are as always stupendous

Recommends it for: those desiring continuity!
Shelves: completed-series
Lots of battle, lots of between-villian plot development (almost too much, for a normally monthly serial), but ultimately kind of... flat.
Better review to follow.
