I am an avid reader of all things JSA and a bit of an OCD completist as well. This being said, I was recently perusing my Starman collection and came across issue 75 which kind of bridges several stories and leads into the final arc of the series. It struck me how interesting the interaction between Jack and Clark played out and how much I enjoyed this series for just such moments and these brief interjections which Robinson seemed so good at. It made me wonder which of these series and related series (legacy stuff) I have enjoyed the most so I thought I would put the question out there for any of you who are interested in responding.

Which of the JSA or related series have you enjoyed the most?

Of the series, which story arcs have you enjoyed the most?

Why? What struck you about these stories and what made them stick with you?

I have to say that Robinson's Starman is probably my favorite overall book of all time though Jack is not necessarily my favorite character. I just loved the way that Robinson succeeded in bringing these antiquated characters into the here and now and giving them a humanity and a relevance that has arguably led to the success that they are experiencing now. I'm not necessarily saying that if there had never been a Starman there wouldn't be a modern day JSA but it is an interesting thought especially considering that Robinson and Jack were there for the initial arc of the series that launched the JSA back into prominance. Please respond and don't be shy with your responces. I'm open to any of the legacy characters no matter how tenuous their connection to the JSA. If you love the Firebrand series (never read it myself), throw it out there. I loved Damage, I enjoyed the Ray, I even read most of the Black Condor series all b/c they were legacy hereos (sort of.)

Anyone else willing to throw anything out? I'd love to hear what you have to say.
