JSA: The Liberty Files – Dan Jolley

In this “alternate history” Elseworlds comics, Jolley takes the classic Justice Society of America heroes (plus some) and turns them into OSS agents during WWII. The problem I keep finding in such titles is that the authors are determined to throw in as many references—if not the actual characters—to historical heroes, in order to thrill the fan base, and then kill them off in droves. Honestly, I just don’t know enough of the characters (and I know more than at least three associated editors at DC) to be able to recognize every name so the titillation is minimal; plus, I find it rather lame to simply accumulate a body count.
