Wanted TPB: Justice Society of America

Writer: Len Strazewski
Artist: Various
Publisher: DC Comics (1991)
Includes: Justice Society of America #1-8

One of the great things about this series was the history of the JSA; which ran through each issue in the back. This history write up is a MUST in a TPB.

Clipped from Comic Book Urban Legend #13 posted by Brian Cronin:
In 1991, Len Strazewski and four different artists did a mini-series starring the Justice Society of America, who had not appeared in comics since DC's Crisis event from six years earlier, in a flashback story set in 1950.

Surprisingly enough, the series was a success. I say a surprise because the mini-series seemed to be designed just to keep Strazewski and the four artists busy while waiting for their !mpact line of comics to launch, as Stezewski and the four artists all worked on various !mpact Comics, so this probably was not created with the thought that it was going to be all that popular.

I have Part 3 of the 8 - Justice Society of America - Featuring Green Lantern.

THe short-lived follow-up ten issue regular series with Mike Parobeck doing all the art is truly beautiful and also well worthy of TPB status.

Miss ya, Mike!

I have issues 3, 4, and 6, and I definitely want to collect the rest! I actually came up with a voice cast for a hypothetical DC animated movie adaptation, consisting of:
-Mark Valley as the Flash/Jay Garrick
-Gary Sinise as Green Lantern/Alan Scott
-Michael Shanks reprising his role as Hawkman/Carter Hall
-Lori Loughlin as Black Canary/Dinah Drake Lance
-Alan Tudyk as Starman/Ted Knight
-John Shea (Lex Luthor on "Lois and Clark") as Vandal Savage
