During the cataclysm known as the Infinite Crisis, Power Girl
learned of a Golden Age adventure in which Batman and Superman
clashed with the mysterious entity known as the Gentleman
Ghost. Now, one year later, members of the JSA find themselves
haunted by the spirits of their departed loved ones. As it
becomes clear the two incidents are connected, the legendary
super-team discovers that the Ghost has returned, more dangerous
than ever. With an army of the undead at his side, the wrathful
wraith is focused on destroying the JSA. How can this supernatural
slaughter be stopped, when the only person who knows how to
end it is the ghost of a hero now long dead...
original superhero team, the Justice Society of America (JSA),
are Earth's mightiest defenders, whose ranks include the Flash,
Green Lantern, Power Girl and Hawkgirl.
the team is torn by the evens of the Infinite Crisis and an
old foe, the Gentleman Ghost, decides to make his last stand.
But why is he threatening the JSA with ghosts from their pasts
- and more importantly, how are the team supposed to deal
with the fallout from the Crisis and bring a ghost to justice?
graphic novel collects together JSA issues 82-87. The
narrative flips backwards and forwards between the present
day and the time of Dick Turpin. This is an interesting way
to show the origins of one of the characters, and the device
isn't over used - with just the odd page here and there zipping
us back to the past.
story and art work are as impressive as JSA fans have
come to expect from this series. The conclusion is well worth
the wait and it's good to see that more than one ghost is
laid to rest.
