    Comics Bulletin - Jason Cornwell Apr 24, 2003

    An exciting issue that delivers two very impressive solo efforts, as Jay Garrick gets a chance to show off his speed & vast wealth of combat experience, while Power Girl gets an opportunity to show she can play with the big boys when it comes to laying down a serious beating on a villain. Both of these sequences are top notch entertainment, and when you throw in a nice little preview of the future courtesy of Hourman's future vision, plus an interesting moment where the Star-Spangled Kid learns Captain Marvel is a really a teenager, one can't help but feel most JSA fans will walk away quite pleased with this issue. On the other hand I do feel there's one too many plots being bandied about in these pages, and I'm a bit concerned that this book has too many frying pans on the fire. I mean there's such a thing as having too much of a good thing, and this issue is coming pretty close to crossing the line, with nearly half-a-dozen plots vying for attention. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Ray Tate Apr 19, 2003

    Goyer and Johns once again attempt to define Kobra as a Bin Laden type terrorist which is like equivocating a beagle with a Rotweiller, and his cohorts do not seem any better. The trio of main villains--our Princes of Darkness--seems rather shoddy with their ill-defined plans. They combine their awesome powers to move the moon before the sun. Oh, horrors. Now, surely this would grab the attention of the JLA since their headquarters sprawl across the lunar landscape. The continuity complaint would have been rendered moot in the good old days of multiple earths, but DC continues to try to assure us that we still live in an age of grandeur but with the added bonus of "simplicity." JSA is so simple it gave me a headache. Read Full Review
