World War II continues to rage throughout Europe and the Pacific leaving virtually nothing untouched by its wake, including American comic books and the JSA... Represented here are the adventures of the Justice Society of America from the pages of All Star Comics of 1944 through the first half of 1945, perhaps the most grim of the war years, which may explain the time-trav ...more

In the se ...more
