DC Announces The New Golden Age With New JSA, Stargirl Series from Geoff Johns

It was one of the greatest times in the DC timeline, the Golden Age of heroes from the 1940s to the 1950s with the epic heroes of the Justice Society of America taking on the greatest evils and on Thursday, DC announced that in November, they will be returning to the past with the start of The New Golden Age, a one-shot from Geoff Johns that, according to the publisher, starts the strangest mystery to ever plague the DC Universe, and kick off two new titles: Justice Society of America and Stargirl: The Lost Children.

The New Golden age will come from the aftermath of Flashpoint Beyond and will see the heroes of the original Golden Age — as well as the villains — have their lives turned upside down spanning not just the past but into the far future as well. The one-shot will "unlock DC's epic and secret-ridden history of heroism" as it launches the new JSA and Stargirl titles.

For Johns, the Justice Society of America is rich and familiar territory having an extensive history writing the team in the early 2000s. Johns is also the co-creator of Stargirl, a character inspired by John's late sister. In a press release, Johns said that the goal of these new titles and stories is to "delve into neglected corners of DC."

"I'm happy to be writing these two titles, each one of them focused on celebrating and expanding the history (and far future) of heroism in the DC Universe, exploring unseen heroes, villains and adventures alongside the ones we all know and love," Johns said. "Our goal is to delve into the neglected corners of DC with this new group of titles, from the JSA to the Legion, and all those who operate between. It's the story of where superheroes came from, where they're going and why they're always needed."

The New Golden Age is a one-shot written by Geoff Johns with art by Steve Lieber, Jerry Ordway, and Diego Olortegui. It will go on sale November 18th. Justice Society of America is an on-going monthly title written by Johns with art by Mikel Janin. The first issue goes on sale November 22nd. Stargirl: The Lost Children is a six-issue series written by Johns with art by Young Justice illustrator Todd Nauck. The first issue goes on sale November 15th. You can check out more information about each title below.


DC's future...and its past...will never be the same again. But how are Mime and Marionette connected to this? Why are Rip Hunter and the Time Masters the most unlikable heroes in the DC Universe? And who or what is...Nostalgia? Don't miss the start of the strangest mystery to have ever plagued the DC Universe.

After making their long awaited return in the pages of Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths #3, the Justice Society of America (JSA) are back in "Justice Society of America: The New Golden Age Part One." Or are they? A long-lost hero from the JSA crashes into our era with a grave warning...but it's too late. A mysterious and malevolent enemy has invaded the entire history of the JSA, and an all-new team must come together to defeat it. But what deadly secret does this messenger from beyond keep? Where are they from? And why is all of this happening now? Only the Time Masters know…

"There will be familiar faces re-joining the team, like Jay Garrick and Alan Scott, as well as long-lost members returning, like Beth Chapel and Yolanda Montez, and a new Golden Age legacy hero first hinted at in the end of Flashpoint Beyond. Mikel Janin is doing the work of his career on this," added Johns.

I’ll definitely be giving these a shot.

“If I could go back in time and like tell 11 year old me that like not only do you get to go to Comic Con but you go every year.  So much so that you get greeted by Stan Lee when you show up.  And 11 year old me would be like - How did we get so fat?”- Kevin Smith

I am hoping to see the return of the 80's Infinity Inc and have always been a fan of the Time Masters!
