I'm assuming you're talking about the comics? lol

I wanted to get into the JSA books also so I read the entire Justice Society of America volume that was started post-infinite crisis. It's fifty-something issues and was an amazing read. There's also the JSA title which went from the late 90's to pre-IC, but I haven't read those yet.

I think the best bet is to wait for James Robinson's Earth-2 with the JSA. That or if you don't mind going back in history try JSA: Justice Be Done. Another good place to start (and a personal favourite place) is Justice Society of America: The Next Age. This book leads into the excellent Thy Kingdom Come storyline which was just awesome!

@Comicbookgal: I would agree about starting with Robinson's Earth-2 in May. I feel that the JSA always suffered when they were placed on the same Earth as the JLA. They were always considered as a second rate team. It should be much better now that they are on their own Earth again.

That said, if you still want to read the post-Crisis and pre-Flashpoint team, Geoff Johns' run was pretty good.
