This is my sentimental favourite JSA fanzine. I discovered a copy soon after it was published in a well known Melbourne comicbook store. I snapped it up and came across my first piece of JSA history and fandom! I devoured the cover story, "The Justice Society of America: hero history by Rich Morrissey" pp34-47, and it introduced me to so many facets of what was already my favourite Superhero group.
Following Rich's article was, "The Justice Society of America Index," pp48-52 which begins with the following note...
The Justice society of america originally starred in All-Star Comics #3 (Winter, 1940) through #57 (Feb-March 1951). An excellent checklist of those issues appears in David Delich's 1977 All-Star Comics Revue. This checklist covers the JSA since 1962. Selected adventures of individual members are also listed.This list became my first official want list! If you look at it now you'll see three types of ticks next to each listing - one pink and one green. The Pink signifies that I had a copy of the Australian black and white reprint of this issue, the green a colour original and a black a colour reprint. I hunted everywhere I could for those issues! This was the list that started me on the road to collecting JSA theme comics - it revealed to me what was actually out there and available if I looked hard enough.
It's a must for any JSA collector and still precious to me.
