Default JSA 1999-2006

So over the past week I was able to grab Vol 2 of this JSA iteration. Needless to say that I really enjoyed it and I grabbed the next arc in issues thanks to my LCS's having a sale.

Now I want all 87 issues......

BTW, I love the name Johnny Sorrow.

It's really good Dave, sadly they didn't have issue 25 so I'm missing the final chapter for the Return of Hawkman.

I just finished reading issue #51 and that is the fucking Dr. Fate story I've been waiting, seriously this comic is just great superhero work.

It was a bit weird that Dove gave birth to Hector, through using Hank to make Dove pregnant.

Is Hank Hall related to Carter and Hector?

Also, ALAN SCOTT IS A MOTHERFUCKING BADASS.

So glad I'm glad I started collecting this run.

Glad you're enjoying it. Hank Hall is no relation to Carter an Hector Hall. Surprised he wasn't retconned to be so with this story.

This is Morrison's JLA, right?

I've been wanting to read it for about 15 years and never gotten around to it. But I did pick up vol. 1 on Comixology during their Christmas sale.

EDIT: Never mind. Just saw that the thread title says JSA and not JLA.

Still gonna read that vol. 1 though.

1) U'll be seeing more of Dove again in v3, which is both a good AND sad thing....

2) Hank & Dawn giving birth to Hector was all kinds of...... creepy....in my book (I was a big fan of Hawk & Dove vol.2); I just kinda rollled past it w/o thinking too much on it really, and AFAIK they *still* never really resolved how he couldve ended up being Monarch/Extant in my book. :/

3) yea, Alan shines in this book. theres some good Hourman stuff in here too, as well as Cap Marvel.

4) I TOLDJA this was a great run, and a good example of Johns telling good stories w/o being TOO heavy-handed with the re-setting of character backstories....

Finished Black Reign and it was weird to see Nabu turn against Hector like he did.

Also so this is how Black Adam has his own country by the time 52 starts?

I have the 2 JSA omnibus..eses. And the Hawkman one. (and the Flash and GL ones too). I've already ordered the 3rd JSA one at my local shop. I don't recommend you get that one though. Get volume 2 and then stop after that.

The quality REALLY drops off. They cancel the JSA and relaunch it with a new #1 so Geoff can do this new story where they start inviting a ton of people to join the group, and the "society" theme begins. And it crosses over with the Kingdom Come Superman and Magog for what seems like forever.

I really wish Johns never came back for that second tour of duty. It's been the death knell for many writers, and he was no exception.

I wish that JSA #80 or #87 had been the last appearance of the post Crisis JSA. It would have been a lot better than the way they went out, like a fart in an elevator when the series ended on the brink of Flashpoint.

I see man,well i have Thy kingdom come already and i liked it,but the rest of the omni seems kind of meh.
I think omni 2 and the Hawkman one will do for now.
