A bit of comic book history first. The JSA are superheroes best known from the Silver Age (1956 to 1970 traditionally) though they go back further and many of them were earlier models of the current superheroes (compare the flashes, for instance). When they were reinvented it was decided these superheroes existed on Earth Two. Traditionally the JSA have been more about the “moral right” than the JLA “greater good” approach.

Anyway . . . this graphic novel is about the many sacrifices made by the

When I read JSA I sometimes wish it was the only comic being published about the DC universe, because it's here that it all makes sense. The characters have a past, present and a future, into which they are moving, rather than being stuck in an eternal present.

This volume had just too many stories thrown together. It starts out with a Spectre story that is somewhat of a prequel to Green Lantern: Rebirth, which mostly through around the words redemption and vengeance. Then, Sand came back--for some reason the JSA had to rescue him from both the earth and his own mind. The third storyline wraps up what happens with all the Hourmen (though I was disappointed with which Hourman ends up sacrificing himself for the other two). There's also an Identity Crisi ...more

Nice to have some shorter character pieces. The Per Degaton one-off is absolutely great [8/10]. The 3-part Spectre story doesn’t grab me as much, perhaps because I’ve never been that fond of the Jordan Spectre. There’s just too much whining and whinging going on [6.5/10]. The Sand story is nice for its connections to Gaiman’s Sandman and for its focus on Power Girl [7.5/10]. The Hourman story is another strong one, thanks to its solid basis in continuity and its moving storyline [8/10]. The fina ...more

I love Mr Terrific and his big shiny T-spheres! Can anyone recommend amy stories/books featuring him?
The stories on this book are a mixed bag: I am a sucker for Spectre-centric tales and so really enjoyed that, but I didn't understand any of the Hourman stuff in the slightest.

I love the golden age superheroes from DC and the new JSA brings these original heroes back into the modern age along with their legacy namesakes. Well above average art and plot keep these 70 year old comic characters interesting and entertaining. Very recommended
It was probably inevitable that, with Geoff John's as sole writer, the book would continue to drift toward darkness. Still, at this point he's doing a great job with the characters, and the stories are still good.

After a short encounter with The Spectre, the focus turns toward recovering lost teammates. The stories in "Lost" are well written and the art is done by various artists, giving the reader a bunch of different flavors. If you are a fan of superheroes, make sure you don't miss this one.
