About the Author
As much as any writer, Gardner Fox helped create the tone and feel of the Batman stories of the 1960s. Fox was an attorney who began his prolific and innovative second career as a writer in the late 1930s on Batman and went on to create such Golden Age classics as the original Flash, Hawkman, Starman, Doctor Fate, and the Justice Society of America. His influence extended throughout the 1950s and 1960s when, until his retirement from DC Comics in 1968, he created and/or wrote such memorable features as the Justice League of America, Adam Strange, the Atom, Hawkman, and, of course, Batman, all under the auspices of legendary comics editor Julius Schwartz. Until his death in 1986, Gardner Fox continued writing comics and novels. He published over 100 books in numerous genres, some under the pseudonyms of Jefferson Cooper and Bart Sommers, as well as many fantasy novels under his own name.

If you like super-hero comics this is one milestone you cannot miss.
Three events have shaped Super-Hero comic history; Superman in 1938, Justice League of America in 1961 and the Watchmen/Dark Knight Returns revolution of the mid eighties, they inspired everything else.
The Fantastic Four and Spider-Man only came to be because JLA was there (that and the game of Golf).
Do not misunderstand me, the original FF and Spider-Man Omnibuses are also must haves, so are many other great Marvel titles, I'm just trying to put things in perspective.
The book itself is gorgeous, Mike Sekowsky's art is still stunning and Bernard Sachs's inks are sharp, bold and elegant, a perfect match.
These two would still be very popular today with modern storytelling and coloring.
Few artists after that generation have had a such a solid grasp of the Human figure in my opinion.
The stories by Gardner Fox are a joy, many lay the foundations for future important events.
This book is a true time traveling experience, never a boring one.
The printing is first class and the very thick semi-matte paper is a real treat.
Do yourself a favor, if you like comics with a classical flair get this you'll have fun reading it, so will your kids.
I understand that Mystery in Space #75 was solicited but not included, that's a big no no, DC will have to do better.
As for the material inside, I'm sure you already know the deal: cheesy but lovable silver age goodness, whose impact on the history of comic books cannot be overstated. Do not hesitate to treat yourself to this book.
JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA OMNIBUS VOL. 1 HC is missing an issue. Mystery In Space #75 was solicited and was not in the actual book.
Sad, but not surprising for DC...which makes me even more sad.
Another thing that catch my attention is the binding. You just can't lay the book flat open. Not until the first 200 pages or so, so there's that too.
So now yo know.
This Omnibus includes The Brave and the Bold #28-30 and Justice League of America #1-30. The front and back covers of the Omnibus I received are as pictured. The front cover is from The Brave and the Bold #29 (May 1960), " Challenge of the Weapons Master". The back cover is from the Justice League of America #2 (Jan 1961), "Secret of the Sinister Sorcerers". I can't begin to describe how vivid the Omnibus colors are. The background white is so white, it makes the colors pop. Brand-new comics in the 50's and 60's never looked this good. For those with concerns, the binding on mine was just fine.
