Stephen Sadowski? This was a breakout for him; I thought he'd shoot to superstar status with the JSA relaunch. He doesn't even have a wikipedia page and I'm not aware of any other works.

Don Kramer? Another fine artist and excellent story-teller. Gone!

Leonard Kirk? Now I know he's still working (recently on FF and now Squadron Supreme), but IMO his art is nowhere near as fine and crisp as it was on JSA. It's unrecognizable to me.

What is going on here?!

He was terrific. I think Stephen Sadowski should have gone on to great things I agree, his crisp layouts and page detail were an important part of the success of the jsa back in the 2000 relaunch, he ensured that the book did not linger in the past visually and instead moved ahead into tomorrow, a very modern looking book with the right mix of contemporary touches married to the traditional.
He left the book due to his own admitted failings with deadlines, and I imagine this is why he has failed to progress in the field since. The shame is DC could have looked after him better than they did a while he may have struggled to keep to an ongoing schedule there were plenty of opportunities in the coming months and years to assign him to a JSA related mini-series or one-shot. I rather feel they failed to recognise his considerable contribution to the books successful launch and accomodate his schedule with alternate projects in its stead.

Sadly though he is one of many many artists to be left in this position.
