So, we'll update that list a little with two favorites (who got covered well over the years), Starman and Black Canary (and, hey, they appeared together on these two Silver Age Brave and the Bold covers by artist Murphy Anderson!).
...and also includes a few other Golden Age reprints, of folks like the Spectre, Dr. Mid-Nite and more all under a cover by artist Nick Cardy, who was quite the cover sensation of the 1970s!
Dr. Fate, the Spectre, Hawkman and Hawkgirl and more), and later in the Greatest Golden Age Stories Ever Told hardcover of 1990.
...and was reprinted in Wanted: The World's Most Dangerous Villains #6 (February, 1973), that featured a cover by Nick Cardy, and Golden Age stories of Wildcat and Sargon the Sorcerer as well!
....it got reprinted in Justice League of America #112 (July-August, 1974) under a cover by Nick Cardy, along with a new JLA story with the team facing the android Amazo, a JLA reprint, and the second half of a Seven Soldiers of Victory reprint, which is all good reading!
...this story made it into Justice League of America #98 (May, 1972), with a cover by Neal Adams, and a Golden Age Sargon reprint as well (and Sargon being in the current Justice League story on top of that!).
But, best of all, all of Starman's solo appearances were later gathered together...
...in two Golden Age Starman Archives!

...and it was reprinted in Adventure Comics #416 (March, 1972, also knows as DC 100-Page Super Spectacular DC-10), featuring a cover by Bob Oksner, and stories on female DC characters, like Wonder Woman, Phantom Lady, Merry the Girl of 1000 Gimmicks and Supergirl!
...where she took over the feature from Johnny Thunder, with the story "The Huntress of the Highway" by Robert Kanigher and Carmine Infantino, and gained a friend in detective Larry Lance, so it's ironic that this story was reprinted in Detective Comics #442 (August-September, 1974) with a cover by Jim Aparo, and Golden Age Batman, Dr. Fate and Newsboy Legion stories as well, and new Batman and Manhunter stories to boot.
...and this story was reprinted in World's Finest Comics #225 (September-October, 1974) that also reprinted a Golden Age tale of the Vigilante, as well as the first appearance of Rip Hunter all under a cover by Nick Cardy!
With all that as well as some Superman and Batman goodness as well, we can forgive them for barely featuring Black Canary on the cover (a shame, because Nick Cardy drew a lovely Black Canary! So, maybe we won't forgive DC, but we'll try.).
...and this story moved into the 100-Page Super-Spectacular DC-20 of September, 1973, with Nick Cardy providing the cover, and the book featuring quite a treasure of Golden Age stories, including Batman facing Two-Face, and the Spectre, Starman, Dr. Mid-Nite and Blackhawk!
...and while it didn't make the original list in America vs. the Justice Society, it was reprinted in the Greatest Golden Age Stories Ever Told hardcover of 1990, which featured a stunning cover by Jerry Ordway, and many Golden Age stories that were, well, just great, and featured a few other JSAers like Hawkman, Wildcat, Sandman, Flash, Green Lantern, Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman and the Spectre as well!
This was the end of the list in America vs. the Justice Society, but not the end of Black Canary Golden Age stories.
A few of her original stories were found, and presented later....
...all under a cover drawn by Neal Adams and Nick Cardy, giving us double the artistic goodness (and a few good stories to read as well, like a Golden Age Wonder Woman and Cheetah battle that was also unreleased until this issue, as well as the first appearance of the Silver Age Star Sapphire, a story about Flora and a super Supergirl story!).
...Black Canary didn't make the cover, but Supergirl did (as she was the main feature of Adventure Comics at this time), and it was drawn by Mike Sekowsky and Dick Giordano.
Better still, there is one more collection of Black Canary reprints....
joined the JSA here, and the difference between Black Canaries here..
...sadly, not all Golden Age JSAers got as many stories collected, but check back as we'll look back again!
Those unpublished GA Black Canary stories (Which technically were "written off" for tax purposes in 1949!)would have most likely appeared in FLASH COMICS #105 and #106.ReplyDelete
