(See also All Star Comics (2nd Series))
A 1940s series, originally quarterly, from All-American Publications, one of the early companies that merged with National Periodical Publications to form DC Comics. With the exception of the first two issues, All Star Comics primarily told stories about the adventures of the Justice Society of America. The series is notable for its introduction of the Justice Society of America, the first team of superheroes, and the introduction of Wonder Woman.
All Star Comics increased its frequency from a quarterly to a bimonthly publication schedule, and the JSA lasted through to #57. Superhero comics slumped in the early 1950s, and All Star Comics became All Star Western from #58-119 with Western heroes replacing the Justice Society. The title became hyphenated with #108.
In 1976 the name All Star Comics was resurrected for a series portraying the modern-day adventures of the JSA. This new series ignored the numbering from All-Star Western and continued the original numbering premiering with All Star Comics #58 (a hyphen appears in title from issue #66).
