With the team still reeling over Liberty Belle quitting the team, they still have to go after Baron Blitzkrieg and Zyklon and retrieve the actual Liberty Bell. With one of the Baron’s men in the hospital, Johnny Quick heads over to question him and find out what it is that he knows only to discover that Libby Lawrence had the same idea. The reason for the theft is made known as Baron Blitzkrieg needs it to regain his sight and a confrontation is soon imminent as Johnny Quick, Liberty Belle and the rest of the team along with some members of the JSA battle it out with the evil Baron. Although you kind of knew that Liberty Belle would never really quit the team, it is good to see it made factual. It seems you can take the superhero out of the woman but only for a short while as it is hard to leave the life, the adrenaline and the excitement behind. Amongst all the action that takes place the Baron unfortunately makes his getaway once again and Libby is left with some new powers which should come in handy if she ever meets that Nazi menace again. While most of the Squadron puts in an appearance, this book does tend to focus on Liberty Belle more than any other which is really good to see as the spotlight has rarely ever shone upon her. Great art by Arvell Jones with equal parts great story by Roy Thomas add up to another great issue of All-Star Squadron.
