Thanks. I’m playing catch up to prepare for this week’s new post!

Week Seven of the JSA Book Club is live. Come and join the fun!

Hi, I’m Moth. I thought I would give this a shot.

  1. How familiar am I with the JSA?

Honestly, I wish I was more familiar. I’ve read many of their early Golden Age appearances, most of their legendary team-ups with the Justice League in the Silver and Bronze Ages, and then a lot of bits and pieces throughout their modern history. But… there are significant gaps.

  1. Who is my favorite character?

In the JSA? Hmmm… I guess I relate the most to Rick Tyler and Jack Knight.

  1. When did I first start reading JSA titles?

I was introduced to the team through All-Star Squadron back issues. As a kid, I could find a lot of them in the 50 cent bin. Loved 'em.

Welcome to the club @TheCosmicMoth. We’re glad you decided to join us. Here is the link to our current discussion thread where we are in the midst of reading Infinity, Inc.

[JSA Book Club] Week 8: Misfits & Mad Men [6/1 - 6/15]

Our next discussion will deal with the JSA’s return to print beginning with All Star Comics #58.

Feel free to jump in at any time!

Thanks! I better get to work!

Here’s the latest club discussion topic. Enjoy!

I’m so glad this club exists! The Justice Society is my favorite team.

  1. I’ve read most JSA stuff from the 90s onward as well as a good bit of the Golden Age stuff, but everything in between is pretty new to me.
  2. Alan Scott and Jay Garrick.
  3. I started reading the 1999 JSA series around 2007 or 2008.

JSABC Week 11 is live. Enjoy!

  1. I’m very familiar with the JSA. Longtime fan of the Earth 2 heroes. All Star Squadron is one of my favorite series ever.

  2. Golly, that’s hard. There are so many and they’re all so good. I’m going to go with Liberty Belle.

  3. It would have been one of the annual JLA/JSA crossovers, although I don’t remember which. The first comic book with the JSA I have a real concrete memory of was Adventure Comics 461.

Yes, I’m rereading these issues and will jump in later this week.

For my money, All-Star Squadron from issue 27-37 was the best run of any pure super-hero comic I’ve ever read.

Here is the link to Week 12.

Here is the Week 14 link. Enjoy!

  1. Very familiar with Johns’s run. Not that familiar with previous works.
  2. Stargirl
  3. Not long time. JSA #1.
