From the Golden Age of comics — a special volume collecting the early individual adventures of the members of the Justice Society of America from ALL STAR COMICS #1 and #2 at a special price!

While ALL STAR COMICS #3 was unquestionably one of comics' greatest milestones, issues #1 and #2 were also impressive in their own right. Virtually every founding member of the (yet-to-debut) original JSA lineup — minus Superman and Batman — was represented in these individual adventures, and most of the stories are written and drawn by their original creators. ALL STAR ARCHIVES Vol. 0 is the perfect preface to the 11-volume complete reprinting of every JSA adventure from the Golden Age.

Now the entire body of these "All Star" exploits is in print and available to all those who were there when they were published the first time around — or wish they had been!

You might also want to include JSA #82 on this list.  It features the Earth-2 Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman with story by All-Star veteran (now DC bigwig) Paul Levitz and art by George Perez.  This peek at George's pencils is pretty exciting:

Personally, I'm psyched about the Daily Planet TPB! Lots of cool Silver and Bronze goodies in that one, no doubt timed to coincide with the new action figures.

It's a good time to be a classic Supes fan!
