Moldoff cvr/art; 1st JSA adventure & 2nd app.Wartime comics are one of the most popular genres for collectors, these gems of the Golden Age combine the early history of superheroes with the historic realities of a global conflagration, and the variety of colorful, patriotic covers that these books were wrapped in are worth the price of admission alone. One of the interesting subgenres in WWII books was the stateside wartime comic, where espionage and sneaky plots of sabotage were de rigueur, in hearkening back to the pulpy mystery plots of the pulps, these tales of Axis threats taking place in the good old U.S. of A. kept readers coming back for more. In All Star Comics #4, the newly minted JSA is called upon by none other than J. Edgar Hoover to stop a homespun Nazi bund plot that is unraveling across the Nation. “For America and Democracy” is a rollicking ride illustrated by six of DC’s finest artists, including Bernard Baily, E.E. Hibbard, Mart Nodell, and Shelly Moldoff. The story was intended to raise an alarm amongst the American populace to be on guard against the rise of Fascism at home, and to stand up for the tenets of Democracy that our great nation was built on, a lesson that still sadly requires retelling today.
