Issue shipped with an alternate cover illustrated by Dale Eaglesham.

Superman of Earth-22 makes a cameo appearance on the preview page. This version of Superman is not to be confused with Kal-L of Earth-Two who recently died fighting Superboy-Prime in Infinite Crisis #7.

Page 11 features snapshots of the Justice Society over the years. The first panel is a rendering of the team's first official meeting from All-Star Comics #3. The second panel shows the team during the Justice Battalion era when All-Star Comics was revived in 1976. Oddly, the team picture includes the Earth-Two Robin, a character whose existence was erased following the events of Crisis on Infinite Earths. The third panel shows the most recent Justice Society line-up in a re-imagining of the cover to JSA #1.
Hawkman (Carter Hall) is featured on the cover to this issue, but only appears in flashback in this story.
