All-Star Squadron (1981-) #1

First #1 issue I ever bought. Spent hours looking at that cover. Makes me wonder what would have transpired if E-2 had survived The Crisis under Roy Thomas’ Editorial control.

Ah memories. I loved this comic as a teenager, the first long running series I collected every issue of. Obviously the writing style is a bit dated now in 2019 but still a great romp and I had forgotten Plastic Man was in the first storyline. A shame the preview of the JLA issue is not in here, but wasn’t hard to follow. This issue really was the start of something special, with some of the after effects of this series still felt to this day (the modern day Liberty Belle/Jessie Quick for example would never exist if this series had not set up two forgotten comic book characters as major players and romantic interest. And I think a lot of the modern day JSA owes as much if not more to this series then anything else featuring those characters)
