I've got a couple of these, and it's a pretty good 1970s team book, much better than Levitz's recent return to the team. Plus all the artists do good work back there, I'm especially fond of Staton's art from the era. I'm kind of dreading the first half of the book, Conway written stuff that I haven't read before, but the good stuff should out-weigh that, and I hope it does well enough that we get a second book finishing the ALL-STAR series and with the later short run that appeared in ADVENTURE COMICS.
