The World's First Super-Team!
What a delightful run this was. In many ways it was this short-lived series which drew me back into DC in the 90's. I'd been away for quite a while, since the Crisis when the original JSofA was cast into oblivion. If DC didn't have room for these veteran heroes, then they didn't have room for me.
Len Strazewski and Mike Parobeck brought the team back to the modern world, investing it with the charm which has always been around successful Justice Society stories. Parobeck's light but strong style was ideal for this team and Mike Machlan's sturdy inking grounded it nicely. The story of older heroes trying to find a role in the world was compelling stuff, at least to this reader.
