    1. In the first half of this trade, which climaxes with JSA #50 (David Goyer's last issues as co-writer), the team faces off against Mordru (this JSA's first villain), Eclipso (the Spectre's nemesis), and Obsidian (Sentinel/Green Lantern's son). I really like this version of the evil spirit Eclipso--JSA's former archivist Rick Montez hates the spirit, yet struggles to harness its power.Like most JSA stories, there are lots of great character moments. Here it's Sentinel's relationship with his kids [...]

    2. Gets lots of points from me for using three of my favorite villains- Mordru, Obsidian and Eclipso. I woulda liked it better if Eclipso had his 90s revamp look instead of his kinda goofy 60s Silver-Age look, but I definitely like the twist of (view spoiler)[a heroic version. And also glad to see a happy ending for Obsidian, finally (hide spoiler)].(view spoiler)[Terrific battles and resolutions galore, wrapping up the Doctor Fate plot, bringing Dove back in action, and more. Black Adam's new miss [...]

    3. An enjoyable book, but I'm pretty muddled now after reading a few of them out of order. Writing a review of this one a couple of weeks after I read it is quite tricky. I had to look at the description on to remind me that Eclipso, Obsidian and Mordru are the three princes of darkness in question.But what I am sure of is that I'm already looking forward to re-reading the series in order, and that the superheroes in this book are some of the most well-rounded (especially Power Girl, nudge-nudge), [...]

    4. I have to admit I am a sucker for the JSA/freedom Fighters/All-Star Squadron ( hey DC if you ever do a reprint of the old Jerry Conway All-Star Squadron books I'm first in line) so I come into this with a bit of a bias. From start to finish I think it's a great book, I notice that lists this book as Geoff Johns even though David Goyer also wrote on this (and is credited in the book). The extra holiday stories at the end are like the bonus reel. Light and fun.

    5. The JSA fights a triple threat in Eclipso, Obsidian, and Mordru (the Princes of Darkness). This story arc was fantastically written and Leonard Kirk's art did not disappoint. It was hard hitting action from the get go with a few special holiday treats at the end. I really enjoyed this book and would highly recommend it to all superhero fans.

    6. I love the golden age superheroes from DC and the new JSA brings these original heroes back into the modern age along with their legacy namesakes. Well above average art and plot keep these 70 year old comic characters interesting and entertaining. Very recommended

    7. Okay, really liked the chapter with Mordru&Co, even the ones about Crimson Avenger But what was up with those holiday extras? :S what's next Valentine issue?? :D Must be me of courseBut all in all a very decent read!

    8. The main “Princes of Darkness” arc is great big-picture Goyers & Johns with many enemies and friends alike [7/10]. The shorts that finish the book off are generally good, with the Crimson Avenger story being particularly strong [8/10] and the Thanksgiving story being a bit weak [6/10].

    9. I really liked this collection. It had the JSA versus Mordru, Obsidian,and Eclipso and led in to the Black Vengeance collection. Geoff Johns' JSA trades are as always stupendous

    10. One of the most amazing, huge battles the JSA has ever had, followed by some wonderful character building issues and one of the most emotional. Amazing.

    11. Lots of battle, lots of between-villian plot development (almost too much, for a normally monthly serial), but ultimately kind of flat.Better review to follow.

    12. Good work.Good story work, good artwork.The Crimson Avenger was a treat. [Is she still out there in the current DC Universe?]The Original Red Tornado story was perfect.
