> I am new to the JSA.I wanted to get a continuity free stand alone tale,so I picked up the Strange Adventures mini.I'm 4 issues in and I am enjoying it a great deal.I was just wondering how this story stacks up to other JSA stories.Also wondering what stories a novice to the JSA should pick up for a good read.Thanx.

I have to say that as a long time JSA fan, I didn't even finish that particular mini. It wasn't bad for me, it just wasn't anywhere near as good as the other JSA stuff out so I decided to wait for a trade which has never come out that I know of.

As for other stuff you should read, try these, they are some of my favorites.

The Golden Age - James Robinson (elseworlds and out of continuity)
Return of the Justice Society - a 5th week event that came out before the Geoff Johns run began.
Last Days of the Justice Society - Roy Thomas (this one is a little old but it was a great story)
America vs. the Justice Society - Roy Thomas again (again, it is a little aged but thanks to Crisis on Infinite Earths, it is out of continuity.)

These should keep you out of continuity but I can honestly say that if you decide to cross over into continuity, most of the JSA stuff that has come out since the '98 relaunch has been pretty incredible.

Good suggestions, Rev, but I don't think he was meaning "out of continuity" so much as stories that he could read that didn't *depend on* a huge knowledge of current continuity.
