    1. The black and white reprinted early exploits of the Justice League of America continue with a pair of team-ups with the Justice Society of Earth-2. The first involves an alien child and his pet who become separated from each other. There's a symbiotic bond between the two and their absences are causing the pair to become gigantic and destructive. The second adventure has the two teams asking the question 'Whatever happened to the Seven Soldiers of Victory?Both crossovers were extremely good. Oth [...]


    2. The main reason I read this was for issues 100-102, which featured the return of the Seven Soldiers Of Victory. The annual JLA/JSA team up convened this time to rescue the time-lost superheroes with help from Oracle, a cosmic being of vast power. They were needed, as their old foe The Hand (now the Iron Hand) created a nebulous hand powerful enough to crush Earth-2 to powder. The Soldiers defeated an energy creature of the same substance years ago, at the cost of one of their lives. The energy u [...]


    3. Enjoyable read as the JLA transitions from the mid 1960s to the early 1970s. Most notable are Green Arrow's change in character and focus, the addition and emphasis of newer members, and the heavy emphasis on science fiction. Interesting to note the changes in character dialogue over time as well as the different reference to societal changes and pop culture. Liked the issue that had references to the Marvel universe


    4. This book is pretty good. I'm a big JLA fan in general, so it's nice to have even ok writing with my favorite superhero team involved.The stories get dumb sometimes. Being the seventies, a lot of "hey, the environment" stories that get kind of dumb, but some actually good onesD STORYLINES:Visualizations of hunger,environmental issues, pollution, etc. important topics, crappy villainsthe first JLA/JSA crossover: I love the heroes, but a little boy alien and his dog, drecky crap.GOOD STORYLINES:Th [...]


    5. Volume 5 of the JLA Showcase series starts off with writer Mike Friedrich, following Denny O'Neil's example and writing socially relevant stories that are both less bombastic than O'Neil's and less effective as a result. After a point Len Wein took over for old-fashioned superheroics, with the return of the Seven Soldiers of Victory, the Elongated Man and Red Tornado joining the team, and the start of the Green Arrow/Hawkman feud. My biggest complaint for this volume is I'd read most of the stor [...]


    6. Some strong stories inside but also a lot of poor ones from Friedrich. Overall a good collection but a step down from O'Neil's run.
