Review: All Star Comics Archives, Volume 4

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Fun volume of the All Star Comics Archives, though even golden age fans will probably be disappointed with most of the artwork. There are a few chapters of Sandman by Simon and Kirby, Spectre by Bernard Bailey, and Sheldon Moldoff does his usual great work on the Hawkman chapters, but most of these Justice Battalion tales are a bit lacking. Maybe it was the loss of the bullpen to the war effort or something, and I normally don’t mind of the likes of Stan Aschmeier or Paul Reinman, but there’s too much of it here and I think it was done so quickly that it’s really sub-par. The stories are great though, featuring the first two appearances of the Brain Wave.
