JUSTICE LEAGUE COMPANION
By Michael Eury.

Commemorating the Justice League of America's 45th anniversary, The Justice League Companion is a comprehensive examination of the Silver Age JLA. Written by Michael Eury (author of the critically acclaimed Captain Action and co-author of The Superhero Book), The Justice League Companion traces the JLA's development, history, imitators, and early fandom through vintage and all-new interviews with the series' creators, an issue-by-issue index of the JLA's 1960-1972 adventures, classic and never-before-published artwork, and other fun and fascinating features!

This traces the JLA’s development, history, imitators, and early fandom through vintage and all-new interviews with the series’ creators, an issue-by-issue index of the JLA’s 1960-1972 adventures, classic and never-before-published artwork, and other fun and fascinating features! "An ideal companion to the outstanding All Star Companion--everything about the JLA and complete illustrated biographies of every creator. Plus lots more!"

Contributors include Denny O’Neil, Murphy Anderson, Joe Giella, Mike Friedrich, Neal Adams, Alex Ross, Carmine Infantino, Nick Cardy and many, many others. Plus: An exclusive interview with Stan Lee and all-new cover by Bruce Timm. A must-read for JLA fans new and old!

Wow, kinda neat --but very limited in scope I think.  On the other hand, with that mandate (Silver Age), he should be able to go into incredible depth with a book-length project.  Alot of that material I've in basic form encountered elsewhere, like in Will Smith & Gerard Jones' book, The Comic Book Heroes, which was almost a month-by-month replay of the Silver Age.
