"   Thankyou Jeff, very happy for the contribution thankyou.  I was very undecided about covering the series as the Invaders link was not the main thrust of the stories so I think we're right to mention them only in passing…"

"Infinity Inc. put Roy Thomas' love for the JSA and for continuity to very good use.  It also had a lot of surprising twists and turns.Come to think of it, it reminds me of how much I loved his Avengers back in the late 1960 and early 1970s."

Thank you for the kind words, Richard. They really made my day! I am very grateful for the amount of interests in my threads, though the success of the JLA/JSA ones are surely due to the affections we have to the subject not my meager commentary.

If you are interested, I have several sub headings: "I Was Wondering", "Silver Sightings" and "Fan of Bronze".

Great to have you here and thanks again!

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( mrs.sandraessien@yahoo.com) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.
