318 – JSA: Strange Adventures

We open our discussion of Legacy characters with Starman by reading “JSA: Strange Adventures” by Kevin J. Anderson. In this retro-feeling comic, the JSA battles the mysterious Lord Dynamo and his Zeppelin. We talk about the old school vibes, Johnny Thunder, dodged complexity, and on-point art. This comic is a work of love, and it shows, but does Golden Age storytelling hold up? Plus, are you hyped for Infinity War?
