All-Star Comics #3 (1940-11)

The Justice Society of America! Exciting! Granted, I haven't been following the adventures of... most of these. Still, good stuff. Let's see what it brings.

I'm skipping a few stories in the volume.

Justice Society of America

Hmm, looks like this is a frame story for the comics in the issue. Johnny Thunderbolt (who I know nothing about, as of now) gets into a JSA meeting, and asks the members to "each tell the most exciting experience you ever had." And off we go.

The Flash

Flash helps a man collect treasure from a sunken ship.

Hawkman

Hawkman stops a madman who lives in a volcano from destroying the Earth. The denouement is strikingly ham-fisted. A villain from earlier literally says: "You again... oh well. I'm dying! I'll tell what I know."

The Spectre

The Spectre fights a threat from beyond the stars.

The Green Lantern

GL fights a criminal who arranges to replace the police commissioner.

GL is, of course, "struck with a wooden club--a non-metal is the only thing against which the ring does not protect me."

Closing

The FBI director wants to meet with the JSA. What for? Find out in the next issue.
