Review: All Star Comics Archives, Vol. 2

All Star Comics Archives, Vol. 2
All Star Comics Archives, Vol. 2 by Gardner F. Fox
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

While another landmark reprint volume, with some fantastic artwork by Jack Burnley, Bernard Bailey, Cliff Young, and others, these four issues of All Star Comics aren’t necessarily the greatest stories every – a couple are so convoluted that they’re hard to follow. They’re also the first without any of DC’s then-Big Four (Superman, Batman, the Flash, Green Lantern) playing any major roles in the stories (except for one with Green Lantern).

The reproduction on a couple of them seem to be a tad lacking (unlike the tales in the other volumes of the series that I’ve perused). Still, it’s about $10,000 of classic Golden Age comics for a very low price (in my case, about $15). Issue #8 did include the back-up story featuring Wonder Woman, which was a great read.
