Following on from Wonder Woman v.2 #160 comes Wonder Woman v.2 #161. And then, after a fashion, comes Wonder Woman '77 #14, where Manhunter writer Marc Andreyko did a Clayface story set on Paradise Island.

When we left the scans in the previous post, Clayface had announced that he was going to take Diana's Clay and get Wonder Woman powers, in a fit of logic only matched by Absorbing Man trying to break into a museum to steal some moon rock. It worked, thanks to Comic Book Logic, and Clayface became super strong and could fly, but Diana wasn't destroyed, only left weaker and younger.

She retreated to nearby Titans Tower where she ran into Donna Troy, now her doppelganger. And so we continue...

*In 2017, that would be a relatively big deal. But in 2000, when Wonder Woman Vol.2 #160 was released, it was just a two part story in among a series of short one and two part stories by artists and writers whose name I don't really recognise, though art in this story is handled by Scott Kolins.
This two parter is collected in the Batman: False Faces trade that has BKV's early work at DC writing Batman, Batvillains, and Wonder Woman. It's nothing amazing, but it does give a nice Wonder Woman story with an angle that seems obvious in hindsight.

I haven't read a lot of Wonder Woman, apart from some stuff around Infinite Crisis (over a decade ago. Gosh.), the Power Girl guest appearance, and bits of Sensation Comics until I ended up behind.

The story starts with Cheetah holding a car above her head and threatening that "If Wonder Woman doesn't show up in the next five minutes...I will kill every last one of you".
Two cops are watching and ready to run out from behind cover to engage Cheetah when Wonder Woman descends from the sky and says "I was hoping I could end this peacefully"

I must confess that the New 52 Blue Beetle did nothing for me. It took some of the elements of the original Jaime Reyes and rebooted it in a very (IMHO) cack-handed fashion, missing the point of the concept. It might have improved after the first coupleof issues, but since I dropped it at that point with no regrets I can't say.

So I was rather cautious about the Rebirth launch, but I have to say I was pleasantly surprised.

"We've basically recreated X-Force in the image of the era. While I'm a huge fan of the original X-Force run, the New Mutant graduates always felt, to me, very '80s despite their radical upgrades. I wanted our version to really look like something that someone would create with hindsight. So what've we got? Basically, it's a team of Wolverines, y'know? It's all the mutants with pretty cool powers going into it -- with the exception of Angel... sorry -- who've decided to use gigantic guns and swords instead." - Chad Bowers

The break-out character from Geoff Johns' Green Lantern run explodes into avaricious action in his own brand-new series!



'Larfleeze is a chance to do a fun comic book, surrounding him with new characters, new villains, new ideas, new sections of the galaxy. New, new, new, new, new, new, new.

'I guarantee six major, new, cosmic villains in the first 12 issues, as well as alien worlds and all kinds of craziness with Larfleeze.'

'And fun. No deep thoughts, no misdirection or trickery. You just come in, there's Larfleeze and look! He's having an adventure, with a bunch of exciting new characters and concepts. At the end of the book, you say, "Yeah, I had a good time reading that book."'

Four pages from Legion #19, out today. Except for a brief check-in with the crash-landed team, almost the entire issue is Mon-El going toe-to-toe with the Emerald Empress on Weber's World.

Pretty green death! )
Mods, there's no tag yet for the second artist on this ish, Jeff Johnson, can we get one or are we totally maxed out now? He did about half the ish (as you see from the credits on the first posted page) and I hate to just ignore him.

Back again with four pages from the hot off the press Legion of Super-Heroes #18, part 2 of the return of the Fatal Five. You'll recall that last issue in part 1, things fell apart rather spectacularly. We spent all our time with two teams of Legionnaires last issue; this time we check in with the rest, and things aren't looking any better on the home front.

There's nothing we can do! )

So that's four out of five accounted for: Tharok, Persuader, Validus and the one in the next ish teaser. Will it be faithful old Mano, or someone new in the fifth slot?

3 pages from LOSH #16, a filler issue in which we hang out, elect a new Legion leader, and move the last pieces into place for the return of the Fatal Five.

But I won't keep you in suspense about the popularity contest leadership election!

and the red scrunchie goes to... )
Next issue: Things Fall Apart.

Keith Giffen's new DC outer space series, Threshold, launched this week. Each issue will feature two ongoing stories: One is "The Hunted," a RUNNING MAN/HUNGER GAMES sort of deal set in Lady Styx's territory. The other is "Larfleeze."

Here are four pages from Green Lantern: New Guardians Annual #1. A one-shot penned by Keith Giffen, this comic returns the writer to superheroic space opera and one of his favorite words.

Things are still building slowly in this weeks LOSH #14, but they are building. Four pages.

You start the fire - I'll provide plenty of fuel. )

Love that teaser for next ish, because "Witch in a Time Storm" means either Glorith or Mysa will be turning up. Either would be dandy by me!

Interestingly, while Legion Lost is firing on almost all thrusters in the current issue, LOSH #13 is idling in low gear for a bit. It's a bridge issue between the Dominators mess of the past several issues and the next big thing, whatever it may be. Meanwhile, we get to see the Legionnaires going about their workaday business, some of which actually does involve mining. I bring you 4 pages of checking in with the troops.

Why are we doing this, exactly? )

So there you go. Remember, kids, Legion elections coming up, cast your vote for leader by Nov. 16!

ETA: We've maxed out on tags already, really? I gotta whole slew of newbie Legionnaires to tag here!
