    1. Any Checkerboard-era DC comics (1965-1968)is money in the bank, and this is the best group of Justice League of America comics produced because it reintroduced a score of old Forties superheroes, such as Dr. Fate, Black Canary, and Johnny Thunder, among others under the banner of the Justice Society of America. I also enjoyed Mike Sekowsky's previously clunky art due to Sid Greene's masterful inking, which tones down the bad art and makes it palatable by smoothing out scores of rough edges.For a [...]

    2. More mid 60's DC goodness than you can shake a stick at! Though who goes around shaking sticks at things like mid 60's DC goodness anyway? That's just stupid. I'm amazed at how abstract some of these menaces are. Like the man who tried to give the world a conscience, or The Unimaginable. If nothing else, there's certainly plenty of variety here. I noticed some differences in storytelling. There's a shift in tone about halfway through the book. Suddenly the Justice Society heroes all have outlan [...]

    3. As far as these Showcase collections of old stuff go, this is not bad. Stories that are actually readable and not turgid examples of repetitive snorecore (I'm looking at YOU, The War That Time Forgot!).I mean, they're from the period when comics were actually for kids, not like now where they're aimed at an audience of old fanboy wrecks. It's understandable I'd find 60s comics a bit dull and slight, but then I'll read some Kirby stuff or something, and realise that this doesn't HAVE to be the ca [...]

    4. Interesting to see the adventures of the league in a different era. They smile all the time, their powers are basic and they depend on a random teenager called snapper to find out what is going on, the funniest being that he brings in the mail to see what help the justice league can do. The martian manhunter looks like richard o'brien and wonder woman is the go to for any sewing needing done. So amusing to read their adventures in the 60's and that his how they stop one of their adversaries too [...]

    5. By this point Fox's style is getting repetitive. Most of the villains will remarkably be immune to the entire league and they regularly need to be saved by their Earth-2 counterparts. Enjoyable but O'Neill and Adams were soon going to produce much better work.As an aside this represents what is probably the high point of the JLA's popularity, selling over 400,000 copies each month in 1966. By 1969 these would drop down to less than 250,000 with The Avengers overtaking it.

    7. These stories are pretty much terrible, but for some reason i enjoy reading them, if only for the historical perspective.
