JSA in the has been coming out since 1998 in its most current form. The series that started in 2006 is more or less vol 2 of the modern version of the JSA. Personally I like this comic alot and to me the art is pretty good. (although I do realize thats subjective)

It depends how far you want to go back for a jump on point. You could goto your local comic book store or bookstore and order the first trade paperback (tp) These are a collection of issues, usually 8 or so at a time, and can be an effective way to build up a collection. They usally run around 18-20 bucks...I can't remember the exact ammount but thats about right. I am fairly certain it would be pretty easy to find the new issue 1 and you could start there as well.

To me the main differance between the JSA and the JLA is that JSA is the first super team the DC universe has had. They are basically the heroic inspiration for all the teams that have come after them. This includes the JLA. The JSA is also about the legacy of the characters/heroes. A good example of this is the Flash...Jay Garrick (the Flash with the winged Mercury helmet) is the first flash and has been a father figure/mentor to later Flashes. (note: I am trying to keep this description basic as you new...I am sure there are others who will have more to say ;\)

Thats a short explaination and I hope it helps you out. As always good reading to you all.

side note: Check out the wikipedia entry on JSA and I am fairly certain Amazon has the whole list of JSA tp available...good luck!
