This classic collection of the Silver Age exploits of the JLA includes JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #29-30, the classic "Crisis on Earth-Three" story that inspired the JLA: EARTH 2 hardcover.

Summary: Classic tales of teamwork, friendship, and justice
Comment:
I held off buying the DC Archive editions for years because of the hefty price. Then I bought a couple used and I saw that they are worth every penny. At least they are worth it if you grew up with these titles. It was amazing how many of these stories (and specific panels) that I personally remembered after nearly 50 years.

Volume two contains stories originally published in Justice League of America #7-14. The highlights of this second volume are the origin of the JLA, and later, the Atom joining the team.

These stories look better on the high-grade, glossy paper than they did when first printed- and much, much better than they look on old, yellow newsprint. The maroon leatherette covers (with the Justice League of America logo embossed in silver) are first rate- though I would never take the heavy, glossy jackets off of them.

Treat yourself to the age of true heroes.

Summary: Best of the JLA Archives
Comment: This is the best of the JLA Archives as it contains the best three issues from the Silver Age, the two-part "The Fantastic Fingers of Felix Faust" and "One Hour to Doomsday", along with my all time favorite, "The Last Case of the Justice League" with the infamous Dr. Light! The Dr. Light issue is a page-turner, making you wonder at first how the JLA members are going to get out of the deadly traps the villian has gotten them into, and then later having you scratch your head at how there are not one, but three Dr. Light's?
If you wish to get a taste of the quality of the Silver Age JLA, this is the archive to own.

Summary: Still cosmic after all these years
Comment: Still great fun. Certainly more fun than all the Woody Allen-ish angst filling many current issues. Not the hard science of Star Trek, but you have to wonder Who beside Salmon Rushdie was reading JLA. The March, 1962 story has a secondary evil character called the Lord of Time who is often referred to as the Time Lord. I just read that the good Dr. Who first appeared in 1963...
