    Thanks very much for that Daveym, its a great help. I have 8 issues of the 10 issue JUSTICE SOCIETY series (unless there was also an 8 issue series in the 90s...) and the first issue of ALL-STAR SQUADRON (and about 3 of YOUNG ALL-STARS) but you've been a great help in establishing where I need to go now (and what order to do things in)

There was an eight(?) issue JSA mini in the early 90s yes, it had terrific Tom Lyle covers and featured Vandal Savage as the main villain, not a bad series but not brilliant either.
I never got into Young All-Stars I'm afraid and my Infinity Inc appreciation fades after around the #36 mark - I always felt the Crisis and subsequent banishment of the JSA gutted that book and left it irrelevant, but the first couple of years are one of my favorite comicbook runs. \(yes\)
It's easy to forget just what an effect the Crisis had on the Justice Society, at the time the loss of the Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman trio left a huge hole in the group as it also deleted Huntress and Power Girl for example. Then there was the knock on effect to Fury for example. Eventually you did adjust to it but it is an example of just how devastating these 'Reboots' can be on characters - the Legion of Super-Heroes is another group always left damaged by these shifts. \:\-\!
