Read full description of the books:
A bit of comic book history first. The JSA are superheroes best known from the Silver Age (1956 to 1970 traditionally) though they go back further and many of them were earlier models of the current superheroes (compare the flashes, for instance). When they were reinvented it was decided these superheroes existed on Earth Two. Traditionally the JSA have been more about the “moral right” than the JLA “greater good” approach.
Anyway . . . this graphic novel is about the many sacrifices made by the JSA. There are a lot of stories in this tale and the creative team does a good job of juggling the many characters in this tale.
There's a lot to say about this graphic novel and rather than giving spoilers I will list some tidbits and focuses (spoilers below): (1) recovering Sandman; (2) tie ins to “Infinite Crisis” (though it's nothing big); (3) HourMan (father & son); (4) Dealing with the somewhat out of control Spectre; (5) Old Flash versus the Spirit King and the fallout; (6) Dead Before Dawn JSA Style; (heh); and (7) Mr. Terrific's small story.
Writing by Geoff Johns. Artwork by a ton of people. Here are but a few randomly: Dave Gibbons, Jared K. Fletcher nad John Kalisz.
ARTISTIC PRESENTATION: B to B plus; CHARACTERS/DIALOGUE (includes juggling a huge ensemble): B plus; STORY/PLOTTING/PANELS: B to B plus; ACTIONS SCENES: B; JSA MYTHOLOGY: B plus; OVERALL GRADE: B to B plus; WHEN READ: mid to late November 2012.
(view spoiler)[SPOILERS: The journey to recover Sandman was the most interesting overall travel to other worlds. Note that Sand became one with the Earth to maintain it whole during a previous crisis. (hide spoiler)]
