5.0 out of 5 stars Zatanna Leads Off This One... Jan. 16 2005
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This is the top of the run of Mike Sekowsky's art, here is the Justice League in all its glory. Starting in Volume 8 we see a changing of art and writing styles as the line up changes. But for now we have the classic JLA line up.

The volume leads off with the wrap-up of the Zatanna storyline that wove its way through several DC titles in the 60's as she searched for her father (available as a trade paperback on its own-just do a search for Zatanna).

Good old silver age fun ensues with the reapperance of the Queen Bee, yet another Crisis and crossover with the Justice Society of America from earth two, and the League gets an assist from the newly minted Batgirl.

Issue #57 is reprinted which served up the well meaning (but sometimes heavy handed) lesson in racial/cultural tolerance "Man, Thy Name Is Brother."

It does not get any more fun than this. Get braced 'cause in volume #8 Dick Dillin takes over the artistic reins and the JLA would never be the same again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic tales of teamwork, friendship, and justice Sept. 20 2007
By OAKSHAMAN - Published on Amazon.com
I held off buying the DC Archive editions for years because of the hefty price. Then I bought a couple used and I saw that they are worth every penny. At least they are worth it if you grew up with these titles. It was amazing how many of these stories (and specific panels) that I personally remembered after nearly 50 years.

Volume seven contains stories originally published in Justice League of America #51-60. The collaboration of Gardner Fox and Mike Sekowsky was still going strong (we thought that it would never end.) There were many guest stars making an appearance- Zatanna, Zatara, The Elongated Man, Hawkgirl, Batgirl (from the Silver Age), and Mr. Terrific, Hourman, Wildcat, Johnny Thunder and his Thunderbolt, the adult Robin (from the Golden Age.) It will be noted that the "go-go checks" at the top of the cover came to an end in this collection- as the super-hero craze that had started in '66 slowly began to fade.

These stories look better on the high-grade, glossy paper than they did when first printed- and much, much better than they look on old, yellow newsprint. The maroon leatherette covers (with the Justice League of America logo embossed in silver) are first rate- though I would never take the heavy, glossy jackets off of them.

Treat yourself to the age of true heroes.
5.0 out of 5 stars A rollicking good adventure May 26 2014

The prolific and dependable Gardner Fox delivers another clever run of adventures starring the world's greatest super-heroes. If you've read previous volumes, you know what you're getting: Plot-driven, gimmick-filled tales that sometimes strain credulity, but always deliver action and thrills. Time and again, the Justice Leaguers show that the greatest super-power is the brain: each story revolves around a mystery or puzzle that must be solved in order to defeat the menace at hand. The enemies include everything from the card-themed Royal Flush Gang to mythological beast-men to a series of truly bizarre aliens (my favorite is the one who appears to be constructed out of neon tubes, although a close second would be the blocky monstrosity whose weak spot turns out to be its enormous big toe).

Consciously or not, it looks like Fox was trying to address the gender imbalance in the series. The first story in this volume features Zatanna the magician, concluding the long-running plotline of her search for her missing father. Hawkgirl and Batgirl are prominent guest-stars in other stories. Even on the villains' side, we have the Queen of the Royal Flush Gang, the alien empress Zazzala, and the stylishly-attired Gem Girl.

Speaking of style, artist Mike Sekowsky's work is looking better than ever in this run of stories. Finisher Sid Greene adds a beautiful polish to the art, and you can really appreciate how good Sekowsky is at expression and staging. A Justice League story by definition is going to have a big cast and a lot going on, but the action is always crystal clear. He's equally good at the scenes of high drama and the small moments of humor and humanity. There's a panel in the first story where a grateful Zatanna gives Batman and Green Lantern a big hug, and their sheepish grins are absolutely adorable.

Whether you're a nostalgic old-timer like me, someone interested in the history of the super-hero genre, or just a person who likes a rollicking good adventure, this is a great volume to get.
5.0 out of 5 stars This JLA Archive saves me not only money but the time it would take to locate the original. April 23 2014

The new printing makes the colors brighter than ever. Plus you don't have to leaf through those endless ads for 'Sea Monkeys.' And such a deal. It would cost a small fortune to get these classics in the original comic book form. The service was fast and the book arrived in perfect condition since it was extremely well packaged. I sure hope they reprint more in this series.

I bought this book for my brother who is an avid fan of the Justice League of America. He was blown away by the type of paper used as well as the bright colors used. And he didn't have to look at; to be continued. Thanks for having these on Amazon. It is well worth the money.
