DC REBIRTH #1: The Death of Pandora?

A panel and a page from DC REBIRTH #1. It is a very strong "homage page" to WATCHMEN.

In 1985, Alan Moore did a 12 issue superhero story about how much he hated the Margaret Thatcher Administration. It had a strong impact on superhero comics. Maybe DC REBIRTH will explore that idea in a meta way. "Everyone hated Thatcher, she nearly ruined England, but it is time to move on."

You won't win. )

Batman: Earth One volume 2

 

Brad Meltzer: "For the first time in a long time, you can see Batman's eyes. That may seem like a minor change. It's not. Johns and Frank know that the real appeal of Batman is what hides within him. Now they're letting us take a brand new, breathtaking peek ... inside and out."

So, Johns on the new Bat-game: yay or nay? Any others who could have fit the bill better?

Greg Pak's Hulk: The Incredible Hulk #100

Previously in Planet Hulk

The Incredible Hulk #100 is a massive issue that reprints many different Hulk issues, including one where the Hulk was on trial and Reed Richards wound up freeing him rather than letting Bruce Banner be sentenced for the crimes of the Hulk. Since I’m focusing on Greg Pak’s run on the Hulk, I’ll stick to just his stories.

(11 pages from two stories in The Incredible Hulk #100)
