While steeped in history, Goyer has written this story arc so the reader isn't required to be versed in 60 years of comic adventures. References to the past are made where necessary or flashbacks are cleverly used and well integrated into the story. The story itself is spectacular as these retired heroes, attending the funeral of an old friend, decide to reform the world's first super team to search for the next Dr. Fate.
Sadowski's art is simply breathtaking. There is astounding attention to detail that brings the illustrations alive. He also gives a realistic picture of these aging super beings. They have been around for decades and a paunch here and a wrinkle thrown in there are in sharp contrast to the typical pysically perfect, six pack abs hero that never seems to age.
Not only would I highly recommend this book, but its follow up trade paperbacks and the series itself. This dip into history is time well spent.
David Goyer has become an author of repute. He wrote the screenplay for BLADE and BLADE 2, starring Wesley Snipes, in the movie adaptation of the Marvel Comics hero. He's also written NICK FURY, AGENT OF S.H.I.E.L.D., DARK CITY, and THE PUPPET MASTERS. James Robinson, the co-author of this graphic novel, has written THE GOLDEN AGE, LEGENDS OF THE DARK KNIGHT: BLADES, TERMINATOR, STARMAN, VIGILANTE, and LEAVE IT TO CHANCE . Artists for the first graphic novel gathering the first five issues of the on-going series are Scott Benefiel, Stephen Sadowski, and Derec Aucoin, with inks by Mark Propst and Michael Bair.Read more ›
I use to hate the JSA, but now after reading some of writer Geoff John's issues I was converted and now love the JSA! This book contains the first 5 issues, and first secret files, of the new JSA series. This was the most popular and best reformation of the team.
This book features great characters like Star Girl, Hawk Girl, Dr. Fate, Wild Cat, Wonder Woman (Diana's mother), Golden Age Green Lantern and Flash, and also the death of the orginal Sandman and his side kick, now grown up, Sand. (Who becomes leader, and a Sand Like Man, and totally rules!)
Even if you aren't a comic fan, this might be a good start. It's a interesting story, with lots of action. Fans will love this! (Series was voted Best Comic of the Year by Wizard Magazine)
