World War II continues to rage throughout Europe and the Pacific leaving virtually nothing untouched by its wake, including American comic books and the JSA... Represented here are the adventures of the Justice Society of America from the pages of All Star Comics of 1944 through the first half of 1945, perhaps the most grim of the war years, which may explain the time-travel story containing a strident saber-rattling indictment of the entire country of Germany (something almost uncomfortable to look at with today's sensibilities). Also we have a sympathetic, yet exciting adventure revolving around the plight of the "physically handicapped," a twenty-year-old murder mystery, an alien robot invasion, and a world-spanning tale of (shudder) living paint!
Add to all this the "mystery of issue 24," as delineated by historian Roy Thomas in his foreword, and you've got a collection of nothing but the best of comics' Golden Age!
