JSA ally Air Wave receives a mass of maydays from the far reaches of the galaxy. With the aid of two Green Lanterns, his investigation reveals that an intergalactic war has begun. Who will be drafted to help stop it? Meanwhile, recent events have left all of the magic-based heroes vulnerable, and the ancient magician Mordru plans to take full advantage of the situation. The battle that ensues has lasting effects on JSA members Dr. Fate and Jakeem Thunder. Also, the fate of Atom Smasher is decided, the OMACs attack,,, and Stargirl has a very bad day...

Mixed Signals is one of those rare collections - one that makes you feel like you've just discovered the world of comics for the first time. From the opening page to the closing panel, this tale sucks you in and wraps you around its little finger.

The writing is tight, but it's the illustrations that make you sit up and instantly take notice - the majority of panels could almost be covers in their own right.

This collection has also been given the loving treatment when it comes to presentation. Above average paper stock is beautifully bound inside a nice glossy cover with one of the most interesting illustrations I've seen in quite some time.

You certainly won't be getting mixed signals if you buy this collection. This will make you realise why you fell in love with the JSA characters in the first place.
