Justice League of America #76 - Dec. 1969

sgBatman looks really angry here...maybe because he and Superman didn't participate in these stories?

The stories: "The Cosmic Fun House!" (JLA #7), and "The Last Case of the Justice League!"(JLA #12) by Gardner Fox, Mike Sekowsky, and Bernard Sachs.

Roll Call
: Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Flash, Green Lantern, Martian Manhunter, Green Arrow

Notable Moments:
DC made a subtle change to their 80-Page Giants--i.e., making them 68-Page Giants! Yep, from now on these Giants were twelve pages shorter. Damn inflation.

Along with these two stories, this issue comes with a JSA pin-up and a Seven Soldiers of Victory pin-up, both by Murphy Anderson, plus a text history of bpth teams.

Hey, at least Aquaman got to be in an issue of JLA, even if it is in just reprints!

This was one of the first back issues I ever got, so sits in a very affectionate place in my heart. It doesn't hurt that it has an awesome Murphy Anderson cover PLUS that iconic JSA "reunion photo" poster in it. And the stories are great, too, with Aquaman saving the JLA in "Cosmic Fun House" and the debut of Dr. Light in "The Last Case." How sad that after seeing just how much Snapper loves the JLA in "The Last Case," the next issue features Snapper's Last Case.
