Justice League #7 is the conclusion of Vol.1 The Totality and boy does it go out with a bang. The Ultraviolet lanterns corps of the entire earth, slow force is strengthening and what’s Manta and Cheetah doing?
Batman #54 is the beginning of arguably the most controversial arc in Batman’s Run but #54 is a WONDERFUL story about Dick and Bruce.
-Superman’s Pal Jimmy Olsen (1954) #1 THAT’S Right! A Digitized Comic made this list. Just as goofy as Lois Lane, check it out for all that golden age goofiness.
