  • Roy Thomas, internationally known as a major writer and editor for Marvel and DC Comics, has assembled the most thorough look ever taken at All-Star Comics! Drawing on his lifelong passion for The Justice Society of America, he traces its origin from its beginnings in the 1940s, through its rebirth in the 1960s, the 1970s resurrection of All-Star Comics, and beyond. Thomas has complied exhaustive research to highlight key issues, outline the genesis of this fabled series, and document the contributions of the artists, writers, and editors who made All-Star Comics one of the most sought-after collectibles in comics history. Along the way, he tracked down numerous pages from a never-published JSA story, presented here for the first time. In addition, there's a discussion of four "lost" issues of All-Star, plus more insights, explorations, and conjectures than you can shake a Junior JSA badge at!
  • This second printing has a higher price point than the previous printing of this book.
