The Hipster Spies With His Little Eye Something That Begins With--The Dawn Of The Superheroes March 7 2006
By The Mystic Eye Of The Hipster - Published on Amazon.com
This book charts the early adventures of the Spectre, the Sandman, Hourman, The Golden Age Green Lantern, & the Golden Age Flash, as well as other, minor Golden Age characters. Pre-Justice Society, they establish the basics of these characters.

If you love Golden Age material, you will find this a very nice collection indeed.

I've been in fandom since the 60's. And these comics, they're still Golden, after all these years.

The Hipster gives it a Big Thumbs UP!

well remastered classic comic edition. Feb. 14 2010
By Michael Dobey - Published on Amazon.com
I was worried about this one because I had read several reviews of later D.C. archive editions like 'starman vol 2" in which they just scanned old comics. All the other archive editions featured clean art and remastering or recoloring etc. This one is well done and features superclean reproductions of the first two issues of All Star Comics. They are pre war and filled with short tales about the golden age great like The Flash, Green Lantern, The spectre, Hourman and the Sandman. Superman and Batman are absent from these issues as they would be for most of the series run.
Other lesser heroes like Ultraman and Red white and blue also appear in this issue. The book is shorter than the rest of the all star reprint book series because it only features the first 2 issues. Even so if you tried to buy these two comics you'd spend many thousands and wouldn't even then get a cleaned up effort like this book. This is what needs to be done with old comics , when they are not scanned from a old comic and instead remastered you can really grasp what a great artform the genre really is. The third issue changed history with it's J.S.A supergroup and Wonder Woman debut but these two issues were pure golden age goodness from one of the better companies that still makes great comics to this day.
Attention! Jan. 10 2014
By Johnny Heering - Published on Amazon.com
DC Comics published 11 volumes of All-Star Comics Archives, reprinting the Justice Society of America stories from All-Star Comics #3 to 57. So what is in this #0 Archives? All-Star Comics #1 and 2, which did not feature the Justice Society. So, no JSA here, but most of the group members are here in solo stories. The non-JSA members featured here are Ultra-Man (a sci-fi hero), Biff Bronson (a detective) and Red, White and Blue (three military heroes). Some of these comics are dated by today's standards, but they are still enjoyable. Plus, getting this book is way cheaper than buying copies of the original comics.
