Also, despite the story ostensibly taking place in the 1940's, nobody talks or acts like it's the 40's. There's literally no reason for this story to be set in the 40's other than, I guess, as a reason to have a childhood baseball game have some sort of social importance, and so the main character can go see a movie with a Fu Manchu stand-in and get upset about it.
All-Star Squadron didn't emulate that either, and I never saw anyone complain about it not doing so. It was a pretty well regarded comic at the time (until Crisis nerfed it).
