This is the volume where the JLA comic starts to grow up a bit. The first two stories, like those in the first volume, are written by Gardner Fox, but the last two are by Denny O'Neil; as a result, they may have less of a reliance on science and sci-fi concepts, but the plotting is far less ridiculous, and much moodier and more character driven. And as good as Mike Sekowsky had been, Dick Dillin's art shows a parallel depth. Finally, finally, the stories of the JLA start becoming good - without ...more

Four of the annual crossovers between the JLA and JSA that occured in the late Silver Age between 1967-1970. This book collects the last two crossovers written by Gardner Fox and the first two by Dennis O'Neill while also including the final book penciled by Mike Sekowsky and the first three by Dick Dillon.

The Super Crisis that Struck Earth Two/ and the Negative Crisis on Earth One/Two: Black spheres turn four average people of various moral standing into powerful supervillains the JSA can't def

Not For: Anyone who doesn't enjoy DC's often silly Silver Age style.

For: Nostalgia, fans of Earth-2, anyone looking for a sweet Jerry Ordway painted cover.

This collection is definitely not for everyone. It is silly, old school DC at fair to middlin' at best. Gardner Fox earned his place in the Golden Age, but rarely seemed to jibe with how things changed in later decades. Art, other than the occasional Joe Kubert or early Neal Adams cover is nothing to get excited about.

The fact is, JLA was neve

Another collection for fans old and new concerning the Justice League and Justice Society as emergencies from these two different Earth's come together. As in the previous collection, DC Comics takes fans back in time to when certain events came to fruition to create the 70+ of enduring comic book heroes.

This collection brings forward the story of a wicked entity known as Aquarius. Fighting both groups of heroes from other Earth's its come to wreak havoc to both. Heroes fall and new heroes are m

This is what happens when comic book writers learn about the many worlds theory of quantum physics: two Earths, one with DC's golden age characters and another with their silver age characters (there are others as well, but they don't factor in here). So, once a year, travel between the worlds becomes possible for some reason, and they team up to fight a menace that's too big for either group of heroes (these uber-menaces never attacked at any other point, for some reason).

I've been trying to re

I loved the annual JLA/JSA get team ups. These were my introduction to the JSA and are full of big, old school larger than life super hero action.
As the stories transition from the big story era to more character driven stuff, there is a bit of effort to make the stories more serious, but at their heart they stay straight forward comic book adventure stories and lots of fun.

I was always a big fan of the JLA/JSA crossovers when DC had the multitude of worlds before their revamp in "Crises on Infinite Earths". Great stories and good art and a ton of heroes in each story. Very recommended
