The last gasp of this great book series ends in disappointment.
My initial assessment is that the JSA is more fun than the JLA. I think their camaraderie is better. I reserve the right to take this statement back at any point in time. Rendering it nearly meaningless as a statement.
Poor Marc Guggenheim. It's clear he had a much longer game-plan for his run on the monthly Justice Society of America title, and that those plans were scuttled by DC's decision to "restart" their entire universe with the Flashpoint event. I have to wonder when exactly in the planning/writing stages of Guggenheim's run he was informed the title would be ending with #54, and if earlier knowledge of that fact would have changed the amount of ground-laying he did in the previous storyline ("Supertow ...more

I was initially collecting the JSA title in single issues, and after reading Marc Guggenheim's first issue on the title, I dropped it like a rock. His first issue resulted in the death of one character, and the paralyzation of another, and the drastic changes were not to my liking. However, when I read the first collection of his run on the title, I enjoyed it more than I thought I would have.

The same is true for this second and last collection. There are some very good ideas here, and Guggenhei
I read this in individual issues, but I picked up the trade to see if it helped the story any. It didn't. The big issue is that large chunks of the story aren't here - There's a whole subplot with Mister Terrific losing his intelligence that is completely jettisoned - near the end he reappears with all his abilities back, and no explanation for how they returned. People just say 'oh, he's back to normal' and go on with it. That's not good storytelling. Neither is the telling at the end - one of ...more
A weak ending - both to the storyline and to the series.

Overall, there are moments of great writing & brilliance in the JSA stories... but each writer seems to sputter out at some point. There is no great arc/storyline to this team.

The fifteeth issue is a nice retrospective on the JSA and a return of one of its oldest foes (though it was a bit annoying to see the HUAC scene so revised from its classic finale). The secrets beneath Monument Point were quiet wonderfully done until the final issue which anticlimaxed the whole plot because it was so rushed. But that was a general problem of DC’s disrespect for its readers at the time, and there’s probably not a lot GUggenheim could have done
What a strange JSA series this has been. They've been adding new character heroes right and left with no explaination, right up until the very end. Too many new heroes for my tastes. Also, the abrupt ending with the death of a major character felt very rushed and a bit disrespectful to the fans. But on the whole it's a good read. I'm a big fan of the JSA and have been following them since the 60's.
Andrew Uys
A rather anti-climatic end to such an incredible series, the title never really recovered from Geoff Johns departure (Green Lantern fans feeling nervous these days?). I enjoyed the large cast of diverse (and often B- & C-list) heroes, but wouldn't recommend this JSA volume unless you're a completionist like me.
Joseph Rice
This would have received two stars if not for the art of Tom Derenick, which is just great. Overall, very rushed and too many plot lines not tied up. Poor characterizations, and missing warmth and personality.
Started off great unraveling to one of the weakest finishes I've ever seen, especially the resolution of Mr. Terrific's issue. So dumb.
OK not overwhelming...sad ending.
