This image is taken from a personal favorite comic, JSA: The Liberty Files. A reimagining of the Justice Society with Batman added to their ranks. The book takes place during the time leading up to and during World War II and the Cold War. Bruce’s paired here with the Sandman and Hourman, two of the greatest members of the JSA. The book is scripted by Dan Jolley and artwork is by Starman artist Tony Harris. This is one of the best Elseworlds books out there. I highly recommend it.

It's time for the first round of our first TBU Vs. match-up. Remember, the winner of this fight may not necessarily be the one who won in the comic that is being referenced. This round's fight takes place in an Elseworlds graphic novel titled, JSA: The LIberty Files, by Dan Jolley and artwork by Starman's Tony Harris, who has also worked on Ex Machina.
First let's cover some background. The Batman in this comic, being an Elseworlds and all, is thankfully Bruce Wayne. Superman, however,…

The issue starts with Supergirl and Jesse Quick racing around the Monitor, doing chores and talking about losing loved ones and fate, when they are visited by a woman claiming to be the Green Lantern of her world and in need of help. Jade is then seen talking to Faust about the Starheart when she is alerted. And then we see Dick sparring with Donna Troy who assures Dick that her bottom line is that now, even though…

After Kyle explains his mission, Obsidian convinces Jade to join with him, and they are merged into a being controlled by the Starheart, and yet both have their own voices speaking through it. So Kyle and Jadesidian…

Two comic books for the price of one review this month as we continue the JLA/JSA The Dark Things crossover Brightest Day tie-in event.
We start in JSA #41 where we see that a Starheart controlled Obsidian and Dr. Fate have taken out the Shade and Faust, and capture Wildcat and Jay Garrick Flash. And we see the JSA All Stars try to hold their ground while all sorts of chaos is going on. The combined…

Dick Grayson, leader of The Justice League of America’s adventures continue with issue # 46 and part 2 of the epic summer crossover with the JSA Brightest Day banner event. Well, not much to say about this issue Batman related wise, as really this is pretty much a filler issue essentially waiting for the current JSA story to wrap up and join this one with July’s issue # 41.
Dick and the flying Batmobile do get a nice moment at the beginning of the issue as Dick officially…

In the 1960s, writer Bob Haney got the idea to take all the younger characters in the DC Universe and mash them together as a team. Not unlike the very successful Justice League Of America. And so in the summer of 1964, in the pages of Brave and The Bold #54, Robin, Kid Flash and Aqualad teamed up. A year later, in issue 60 the team got its first female member in Wonder Girl, and a name, Teen Titans. And by 1966 the team would have its…
