Recently, I was reading Moore's run on Swamp Thing, and the issue which reprinted the first Swamp Thing story (adding the Alex Olsen Swamp Thing to the Alec Holland Swamp Thing's mythos), and the framing story, featuring Cain and Abel got me to thinking about the pre-Sandman existences of some of the major characters...after tracking down their earlier appearances, it occurred to me to share the first appearances of the ones I knew of... (I'll be ignoring most of the superhero characters and John Constantine, since, with one exception, they only had roles in one arc, aside from The Wake. (Or, in the case of Wesley Dodds was barely a cameo in either of his appearances, even if they were in different arcs.))

Thus this post. )

So, there we go...hope you enjoyed.

I honestly had trouble with this one. Because in truth? There is more than one character I'd like to see come back from the dead.

The characters I speak of all populated a world that was originally five decades old. They lived on a world where the first superheroes appeared and united during World War II and formed the first superhero team in the history of superhero teams. These were the characters that aged in real time, married, and had families of their own. Their own children eventually took over their jobs as superheroes once they were old and retired or had passed on after a long, fruitful life. Their own legacy even led the arrival of a new generation of superheroes that were more diverse than their predecessors.

I am of course, talking about the pre-Crisis Earth-2 in all its Golden Age glory! )

So. Comicbook Resources recently interviewed Eric Wallace, and unsurprisingly, Peege is one of the questions that came up.

And because DC apparently has a strict no-spoilers rule in place (though admittedly they themselves aren't too good about that), Wallace could only reveal so much, but it's enough to get my Spidey senses tingling.

Non-spoilers behind cut )

(Fewer scans equals less worktime, ahahaha.)

In our last chapter, we had a rescue mission and a history lesson. This time, we get a chapter so brief that it's practically a footnote, a metaphysical entity gone batshit insane, and the first casualties of the upcoming Infinite Crisis. Seven scans from JSA #74-80.

In the last chapter of our merry tale of What The Hell, we were treated to a boatload of genetic and esoterical confusion, courtesy of the Hawkfamily, a demon, a wizard, and Dove. In this chapter, we get more build up, a lot of supposed therapy... oh, and plotholes. Big ones. But after the first two chapters, you should have seen that last one coming. Twenty three pages from six issues. I tried this time to limit the ranting. Sort of.
