JSA (1999)

Not long after she was introduced in Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E., Courtney quickly made her way to the Justice Society in their acutely named JSA title. In fact, this series began only a month after Courtney was introduced in Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E. No. 0, so really, she’s been in the Justice Society basically since her inception as a character.

Beyond just serving as another series that Stargirl is in, this is also an excellent Justice Society series. Co-written by Geoff Johns and Batman Begins screenwriter David S. Goyer, this series is a great jumping-on point for anyone wanting to read modern Justice Society stories. The first several arcs are are really well-handled and have a nice variety of villains for the JSA to go up against, including a version of the Injustice Society.

And, if you’re going to read this series for Stargirl, this series handles her very well too. She’s young and learning, but is also shown to be incredibly competent and quickly gains the respect of the older members of the Justice Society. In general, it’s a really nice series all-around. It also presents several stories that could possibly make their way into the show in future seasons, including a story that, if done right, could crossover with Legends of Tomorrow.
