With the arrival of Gog, many JSA members were granted their heart's desires--and now Power Girl's wish has come true as she's transported to her home reality on Earth-2 where the JSA were the only heroes and her best friend was Helena Wayne, the daughter of Batman!

    I've drawn the high score mainly from the art, but there are a few elements to Geoff Johns' story that stand out. I would have given the art alone five bullets. The story would have gotten two bullets. That's seven bullets total. Divide by two, and the book averages out to three and one half bullets. I don't like the half bullet grade. So, the art bumps the book's worth more toward the four range. Justice Society of America Annual is a must for fans of Jerry Ordway and the one true Huntress. Read Full Review

    I completely enjoyed Justice Society of America Annual #1. Johns did a fine job bringing Earth-2 back into the DCU. If you are a fan of the characters from Earth-2 then I would imagine that you are going to love this issue. I also think that this issue will appeal to newer fans who may not know much about Earth-2, but that are big fans of continuity and like researching the DCU and learning new aspects of DC's history.

    Comic Book Bin - Koppy McFad Aug 2, 2008

    So yes, this book was fun to read but mostly for the nostalgia. It really looks like they are stretching this "Earth-2" thing out, perhaps to the point that people will get tired of it. As it is, we have the whole affair with 'Gog' to deal with-- not to mention the eventual ramifications of the Final Crisis. It is hard to sustain interest for that long. Read Full Review

    IGN - Dan Phillips Jul 30, 2008

    Seeing that this story has only a slight tie to the Kingdom Come story currently going on Johns' JSA series, I suppose it's appropriate that it got this annual packaging. I think a lot of newer readers who dig the new JSA series might come away from this one-shot scratching their heads. Still, in the end, it's a decent enough read with some nice, crisp, old school art from Jerry Orway, and can be enjoyed to a certain degree, even if you have no idea why an adult Dick Grayson is running around in his Robin outfit or why this JSA's Dr. Midnight is a woman.

    Comics Bulletin - Thom Young Aug 4, 2008

    In Justice Society of America #11, Jay Garrick and Wally West pulled a cosmic treadmill out of storage and decided to look for the original Earth-Two. Once they reach the correct vibrational coordinates for the original Earth-Two, they momentarily see Helena Wayne and Richard Grayson (as The Huntress and Robin, respectively) before everything goes black.

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Jul 30, 2008

    While well written, from a technical standpoint, and featuring decent artwork, this story represents everything wrong with DC and its unhealthy obsession with the Silver Age and their overreliance on nostolgia to hook readers and sell books and I refuse to recommend a story like this to anyone.
