> > 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.
> The Rev
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.
