There were a bunch of issues, but don't fall for the name, you didn't miss anything.  It was an Iron Age re-write designed to destroy any and all vestiges of hope that may have still remained in the fans.

There were twelve "Silver Age" books in that series, subtitled: "80-Page Giant", "Secret Files and Origins", "Challengers of the Unknown", "Dial H for Hero", "Doom Patrol", "Flash", "Green Lantern", "Justice Society of America", "Showcase", "Teen Titans", and "The Brave and the Bold".  

Here's some reviews:

I read some of this series; it's basically a storyline that was meant to be a "flashback" to the post-Crisis DCU's version of the Silver Age---thus, Barry Allen runs around in the "Flash" issue above, but Clark is still the Byrne version (and Black Canary "substituted" for Wonder Woman in the JLA storires). Admit I only bought the "Flash" issue of the thing, though (which was entertaining enough---liked seeing the Turtle again)...
