How good this volume of early stories featuring DC's greatest heroes banded together as the Justice League of America is depends on what you compare it to. It doesn't hold a candle to more recent work by Alan Moore, Geoff Johns or Brad Meltzer, with more complicated, emotional stories. On the other hand there is a lot of heart especially when compared to a lot of other comics of the day.<BR/><BR/>There is an innocence to these volumes that is refreshing in this jaded age. There's also quite a bit of silliness that is par for the course. Its interesting to note how socially progressive some of these stories are. While there are no characters of color, Wonder Woman was for more liberated and helpful than other contemporary super heroines. There is also very little of the perpetual fear of communists, traitors, and the atom that pervades many early Marvel stories.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
