From Booklist:

Comics' first superhero team, the Justice Society of America, appeared in 55 issues of All Star Comics between 1940 and 1951, all of which have been previously reprinted in the Archives series. Those collections skipped the magazine's first two issues, however, which contained stories starring characters from various other DC titles. Hence, this "Volume 0" gathering 16 tales featuring some of the era's best-remembered superheroes, including the Flash, Green Lantern, Hawkman, Atom, and the Spectre, all of whom were revived in the 1960s in versions that persist, largely unchanged, to this day. Stories of various third-rate characters who remain deservedly obscure--Ultra-Man, champion of the year 2240; Red, White, and Blue, three U.S. soldiers who fought fifth columnists and other home-front menaces; and Biff Bronson, apparently just a regular guy predisposed to getting into scraps--fill out the book. The artwork may be crude, and the stories ludicrous, but this stuff retains definite charm. Gordon Flagg

Book Description DC Comics, 2006. HARDCOVER. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. Archive Edition. From the Golden Age of comics - a special volume collecting the early individual adventures of the members of the Justice Society of America from ALL STAR COMICS #1 and #2 at a special price While ALL STAR COMICS #3 was unquestionably one of comics' greatest milestones, issues #1 and #2 were also impressive in their own right. Virtually every founding member of the (yet-to-debut) original JSA lineup - minus Superman and Batman - was represented in these individual adventures, and most of the stories are written and drawn by their original creators. ALL STAR ARCHIVES Vol. 0 is the perfect preface to the 11-volume complete reprinting of every JSA adventure from the Golden Age. Now the entire body of these "All Star" exploits is in print and available to all those who were there when they were published the first time around - or wish they had been!. Book.
