Picked this up at the library today and read it in the park. I've been a fan of the JSA since I was a wee lad and found some All-Star Comics. Wildcat is one of my favs and it's great to see him being explored and growing as a character.
This was all in all a sold read. The first story was good, albeit short, and has some good characterization moments. The villain was a surprise, and I would like to see him face the JSA again.
The second story was a little bit familiar, but well told. I like Mr. Te

I'm not a big JSA fan but I am a fan of Bill Willingham's writing, especially his always interesting twists on the superhero genre. That said, the first half of the graphic novel with Dr. Fate seemed out of place with the second half (super-Nazis and the Axis of Evil). I enjoyed BW's characterizations and the way he writes magic into his stories but the point seemed lost on me. The second half with the Fourth Reich is where BW shines. His nuts-and-bolts knowledge of war emerges like the veteran ...more

I am an old fuddy-duddy.
I am.
I like something about the good guys being good.
About standing up and standing for something.
The JSA give me that.
They give me that feeling.
This issue makes the point for me.
The Old Guard and the kids who stick with them make the choices that say they will not be stopped.
And they do it as a group, a family of heroes.
Flash [Jay Garrick], Wildcat and Green Lantern [Alan Scott] take a stand again some tough odds.
Mr. Terrific [Michael Holt] and the new crew support them

I was much happier with Willingham’s solo effort on the Mordru story. Curiously, the first half reads like Giffen-era JLI, but it’s well done. Overall, a good story if a notable difference from the several years of Johns [7/10]. The actual Axis of Evil story feels more like Johns’ JSA -- perhaps even a bit too much like some of Johns’ go-back-in-time-to-change-everything stories. Still, it’s a solid multipart story [7/10].

Definitely not the first time this story has been told, and definitely not the best telling of the story, but better than expected given the quality of the villains offered. DC really liked this story concept enough during a certain time period. Well, at least enough to basically approve it twice... But only once with Nazis. Sigh. One could also read Flashpoint to largely the same effect.

Il calo di qualità continua nonnostante Willingham abbia separato la JSA in due tronconi, riducendo il numero di personaggi (che erano davvero troppi) da gestire. Questa particolare distopia poi non è che sia ne originale ne ben descritta.

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

A working time travel story... who'd have thunk it? This feels more like the Bill Willingham I know & love from the early parts of FABLES.

A particularly underwhelming installment, even given the scope of the thing. The first two issues are fairly useless.

3.5... The first story was a pretty lame 2-parter. The rest of the book was much better though.

I liked this story more when it was written by Chris Claremont and called Days of Future Past.

Fantastic. Seeing depowered heroes fighting Nazis in a distopian future was perfect.

It was a decent book, but it felt really forced and the story didn't leave me on the edge of my seat.

I thought the first story was well told, a part of it made me laugh out loud. The second story was interesting, moving and kept surprising me. A very good read.

Not the best in the series. Big reset button. This is a story that has been told before. Hope the next book is better.

Mediocre. A JSA story should be much better than this....

In the late 1970s to early 1980s he drew fantasy ink pictures for the Dungeons & Dragons Basic and Expert game rulebooks. He first gained attention for his 1980s comic book series Elementals published by Comico, which he both wrote and drew. However, for reasons unknown, the series had trouble maintaining an original schedule, and Willingham's position in the industry remained spotty for many ...more
