The original BATO & the Baxter series are among my favourite comics ever & it's been sad to see that no-one has managed to do anything anywhere near as good with the group since.
Those Barr/Aparo & early Alan Davis comics are classics.
yep. IMMO, those were perfectly-crafted team books: mix of old (yet still relatively unused so that there were plenty of stories to tell) and new heroes and villains, lot of short 1- and 2-issue stories which spotlighted individual characters but still included the group as a whole, some ongoing mystery, lots of action, great art, efficient use of subplots which never lingered too long...this and New Teen Titans at the time were easily my two favorite DC books, and basically served as a primer for "how to write team books"
