All-Star Comics No. 28
- D. C. Comics, Inc.
- All Star Comics No. 28 was published by DC Comics in the spring of 1946. The cover features the costumed members of the "Justice Society of America" holding the lids of a row of chained purple barrels marked "Danger Do Not Open!" A man holding paintbrushes is featured in the foreground.
- "The Paintings that Walked the Earth" issue saw The Justice Society of America confronting creatures that sprang from artwork created with magic paints. Each member battled with the creatures from different paintings before banding together to return the creatures to their canvases and the magic paint to its jar.
- Introduced in All-Star Comics No. 3, The Justice Society of America was the first team of superheroes to be featured in comic books. The group was popular in the 1940s, and after their prominence faded a decade later several group members were reinvented and brought together again as the Justice League of America. Several Justice Society of America members went on to have their own titles, such as the Flash, the Green Lantern and Wonder Woman.
