    TOUCHING! That is the proper word as all these brief glimpses of the New Golden Age titles that DC has been teasing us with FINALLY come together. The full page reuniting of Jay & Judy Garrick is enough to bring a tear to your eye. Bruce Wayne’s idea of dealing with his future is so old school comic geeky that you can’t help but smile. But, of course, the tragedy here is all the returning sidekicks who have no one to turn to now that they are back. Cherry Bomb and Ladybug are especially tear-jerking. But even, they get rays of hope. And best of all, (and no I am not referring to the homage recreation of the cover to All-Star Squadron #1) is seeing Alan Scott taking charge and making sure that these legacy heroes are well taken care of. It was like opening up a story from the 1999 JSA title by James Robinson. I hardly ever say this but I am looking forward to see what the creative team has up next.

    Justice Society of America #6 provides enjoyment and also shows what the heart of a team is. Morals and character in action. Brava!

    This is sort of a breather issue in that there’s no big battle, but it’s funny given that this might be the most packed comic I’ve read in a while.

    Justice Society of America #6 captures what the Society is about: Family, Legacy, and Learning. Johns and guest artist Marco Santucci craft a fantastic issue that takes the Society back to what makes them stand out from the JLA: earnest character moments. This issue was much calmer but rewarded readers of the New Golden Age by showing these stories payoff, plus the increased release frequency capitalizes on the team’s energy!

    Justice Society of America #6 is an exciting start to a new story arc. It’s character focused and sets the stage for what’s to come. The fate of the Lost Children has been an intriguing plot line since the beginning of Stargirl: The Lost Children. Their story naturally continues here. The emotional tension between Bruce and Helena is fantastic and it’s great to see Helena and Karen’s friendship as the cornerstone of the future of the JSA!

    The Comicbook Dispatch

    Justice Society of America #6 is just a subtle, long epilogue to Stargirl: The Lost Children mixed with a dash of Justice Society of America. We now see a possible future for Huntress, as well as many of the lost children, and we get a wrinkle for the future of this book. However, will this wrinkle be enough to hook people into this book for the future? Probably not.

    Readers, this non-action-packed, mellow, suspense-less display was extremely uncharacteristic of what Johns normally puts out. The art was uneventful and the story was way too simple and flat. Any issue that could be summarized in one sentence is normally not worth the buy. And sadly, that’s the case this week. If you’ve been reading along like I have, maybe you get it to be that completionist. Otherwise, maybe you just pass this week, pick up Justice Society of America #7, and not miss a beat.

    Justice Society of America #6 sets the stage for a new generation of heroes as it draws upon both Stargirl: The Lost Children and Per Degaton’s recent time-travel rampage to (re-)introduce readers to a slew of new legacy heroes, primarily tied to Golden Age icons. Although earlier issues in the series could seem scattered, the abundance of new conflicts and characters present here all stem from a similar origin and provide what is essentially a series of vignettes with some cohesion. Nearly every introduction provides a compelling start, whether it’s the curse afflicting Salem the Witch Girl, Cherry Bomb’s lack of control, or Ladybug’s sole attachment to her past. There’s a tremendous amount of promise found amongst this eccentric collection of sidekicks and artist Marco Santucci does an excellent job of displaying their designs without losing track of the emotions present in each sequence. The energy present in the second arc of Justice Society of America recalls Johns’ earliest work at DC Comics on the same title in a warm fashion that promises this series’ best days still lie ahead of it.

    Justice Society of America #6 is as good a setup issue as you could hope for when the Golden Age sidekicks, lost to Time, find their way into the modern world for the beginning of a new super team. Johns’s character setup and introductions are charming, and Santucci keeps a dialog-heavy issue visually appealing, but it’s too soon to tell where this max-series is headed or if it’s worth continuing.

    Justice Society of America #6 is a transitionary issue with the comic dealing with the fallout of the conflict from the opening arc of the series and starting to deal with the group of forgotten sidekicks who have been rediscovered.

    I was really excited to cover this book. I really was. Oops.
