Review: America Vs. The Justice Society (Jsa

America Vs. The Justice Society (Jsa
America Vs. The Justice Society (Jsa by Roy Thomas
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This afternoon’s quick read was this trade of a fun limited series from 1984-5. America Vs. the Justice Society was a four-issue history lesson into DC’s Golden Age, particularly All Star Comics #3-58. Now you can easily read the entire run in DC’s Archive series, but it was still a pipe dream back then.

The cover art is done by Jerry Ordway, and Rafael Kayanan, Alfredo Alcala, Mike Hernandez, and Rich Buckler handle most of the interior art, with Golden Age Guru Roy Thomas writing a story that has the original Batman accusing his former teammates of treason. Every member and foe of the JSA is touched on in this series, as the framing story has them unknowingly battling their greatest enemy.

A great tale for comic fans and for people who want to know more about the Golden Age era.
