Justice League of America #165 (April 1979) VG $2.00 Issue #165 of Justice league of America is significant for a couple of reasons.

Hawkgirl/Covergirl Collection #127

Justice League of America #164 (March 1979) FN $3.00 I have a theory about Zatanna and her joining the Justice League of America in the late Seventies.

Justice League of America #151 (February 1978) FN 6.0 $4.80 The Wonder Woman who flourished in the golden age of comics existed in the pre-Comics Code Authority era and her comic books in 1940s were notorious for containing a subversive “bondage and sapphic-undertones” subtext.
