Review

"Though Geoff Johns has been involved in many of DC's most notable titles over the last half decade, there is arguably no group of heroes he's more associated with, or more adept at writing, than the Justice Society of America"—IGN

Format: Hardcover
This massive volume collects the rest of the original run of JSA by Geoff Johns and David Goyer and how this book rises brilliantly in fantastic super-hero story-telling. The mix of characters and situations is great along with wild twists and pull you along wonderfully. This volume collects several great storylines that shine wonderfully:

*JSA Annual 1: Introducing Artemis who plays a big role in things to come.
*Stories from "JSA Secret Files #2" that presents Roulette.
*Issue 26-28, 30: The JSA have issues with Hawkman wanting Hawkgirl, who doesn't love him back and it builds to Mr. Terrific being made new Chariman. Then, several of the team are kidnapped by the wicked Roulette who forces them to fight each other in a twisted game for pleasure of betting men with a great twist on who Roulette is.
*29: A tie-in with the "Joker's Last Laugh" crossover as Stargirl and Jakeem Thunder face off alone against the "Jokerized" Solomon Grundy
*31: A brief issue of Batman helping the team track a metahuman killer.
*32-37: When Johnny Thunder appears, seemingly cured of his mental illness, he gets Jakeem to give him the Thunderbolt back. However, in a stunning reveal, "Johnny" is really the JSA's old enemy the Ultra-Humanite who uses the Thunderbolt's magic to becomes master of the world. A rag-tag JSA have to fight him and his army of mind-controlled heroes. A terrific achievement of a story, especially the genius touch of how the heroes have to accept the aid of second-generation villain the Icicle with a dark vibe to an already huge story.
*38: A special Father's Day spotlight, mostly on Hourman as he uses a special time travel device to connect to his time-lost father.
*39: A spotlight on Power Girl facing a goofy stalker.

I'll assume you already know that JSA Omnibus Vol 2 contains some of the best writing by one of the greatest writers in comics (see below for specific issues contained; Amazon's list is incomplete). If you love well crafted comics, you might as well sign up now to own all three volumes.

As for the presentation: Vol 1 was the only DC omnibus I've ever had problems with, and this volume corrects most of them. The spine is glued rather than bound; I know, many people complain that gluing it is chintzy, but I find that makes it far easier to keep the book open. Which is important. One of my biggest complaints about Vol 1 was that it was difficult to read such a massive tome; Vol 2 actually adds more than a thousand pages (1401 in all!), yet I had no trouble keeping it open (laying it on a table, of course ... you won't be lying in bed reading this one). Some of the unnecessary title pages were taken out for this volume. Sadly, they still won't tell you what issues you're reading, but I guess we can do our research on the internet if that's really important to us.

Volume 2 contains: JSA 26-75, JSA Annual 1, JSA Secret Files and Origins 2, and Hawkman 23-25.

Stay tuned: Volume 3 will contain my personal favorite issues of the run.

This is a collection of some beloved comics stories by Geoff Johns, Leonard Kirk, Don Kramer, Peter Snjebjerg and others.

I think they are loved as much for their PROMISE as for their actual EXECUTION.

Episodic works like JSA have a sort of hurdy-gurdy quality when they are collected in one volume. The crank is turned, the story revved up, the music plays, the crowd is entertained and then, on the last page or so, the crank is wound back up again and STOPPED at a cliffhanger or revolution that may -- and usually does -- pay off in the next issue. But there's always this lingering thought that it could have been better, than we are missing something, that more must exist offscreen.

So I think a large part of the excitement of reading the JSA title used to EXPECTATION and HOPE. We readers would all be waiting on tenterhooks each month to find out what new artist, team-up variation, guest-star, or tribute would be shoehorned into the title. Somehow it always worked out. But it is a little like a soap opera, you live through the JSA series, you don't really read it. So when it is collected altogether, it can seem redundant or forced. For a reader unfamiliar with the series, it can be jarring and a little unfulfilling. Who is Hourman? And why does he matter? Well, it appears he is the long ignored son of the original Hour-man from he 1940's who was a member of the original Justice Society of America. That Hourman, Rex Tyler, was a brilliant chemist who invented a chemical named Miraclo that gave him super-strength, limited invulnerability, and speed for exactly one hour. He had also been written out of the Justice Society title three times before. Now, he -- and his son are back and this time it sticks. They finally become integral to the title.

Got both the first and second one. Originally intended to use this for weightlifting--it is huge but great. Excellent value and thoroughly enjoyable.
