Set during the start of one of the darkest periods of U.S. history, the infamous “McCarthy Era,” THE GOLDEN AGE takes a thought-provoking look at what might have happened to DC’s first generation of super-heroes beyond their exploits during the Second World War, when paranoia has taken a chokehold on America.

DC’s first generation of super-heroes have been driven into retirement or hiding, or madness-except for a few who are willing to change with the times. But behind the scenes, something even more sinister is unfolding-a subtle plot that may engulf the planet and remake it in one man’s image. Collects JSA: Golden Age #1-4.
