Short Book Reviews

The JSA All Stars by Various - Collecting Golden Age solo stories of B-listers Johnny Thunder, the Hour-Man, Wildcat, the Atom, Doctor Mid-Nite, Mr. Terrific and Red Tornado, this volume is a swell companion to the All Star Comics Archive Editions. All these stories were new to me and some were surprisingly enjoyable while others had me laughing or cringing, sometimes at the same time. The Atoms' butt cheek baring leather thong/girdle is disturbingly seared into memory. Altogether light fun and an interesting glimpse into comic book history. Recommended.
