I've been wanting to get back to the empty abyss that is Countdown to Final Crisis, but it is such a slog... a dark, unpleasant, and mean-spirited slog that it is hard to get through and muster the energy to do it.

So, let's just skip ahead to the absolute bottom of the barrel. Quite possibly the worst issues of this entire run: #24 & #23, the introduction of Superboy-Prime, aka Superman-Prime at the time.


WARNING: Violence, gore, and vomiting are seen in these comics.

"We all went into it with the best of intentions and we were all very excited. It started out fun, and a neat challenge, but it became more and more trying as the series went on. As with Bedard, Palmiotti, Gray and Beechen, I had very little say. As time passed, we were promised a more prominent role, but the reality was we wound up having less and less to do with it." - Sean McKeever

perletwo: losh big universe big trouble (legion - big universe)

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?

2 pages from the new issue.

So as you'll recall, Brainiac 5 and Dream Girl have been kidnapped by the Dominators. Everybody and their brother knows it's the Dominators. But thanks to POLITICS!!! the Legion has been forbidden to rescue them unless they present proof to the Council that it's the Dominators.

Still bickering, Cosmic Boy suggests Mon-El try magic - either via Glorith (remember her?) or a call to the Black Witch (remember her?). He declines, but it does remind him someone else still exists. So back to the Council they go...

Reasonable doubt? You be the judge. )

So basically they're just staking it all on that character's clout? Okaaaay.

For Free Comic Book Day, Boom! Studios has released a prologue to Abnett and Lanning (and main artist Brad Walker)'s upcoming series The Hypernaturals.

"It is the far future; the human race has finally colonized the galaxy, preserving an era of prosperity that's only possible because of The Hypernaturals. They're a celebrated, galaxy-wide superhero task force that keeps the peace. That is, until they all mysteriously vanish. Now, as the galaxy teeters on the brink of chaos, it's up to a group of retired and long forgotten Hypernaturals - and their novice recruits - to save the galaxy from complete destruction."

Since I posted pages from the first issue of this miniseries five months ago, I thought I'd post four pages from the end, JLA/the99 #6.



As you may recall, Superman and Wonder Woman, along with several members of the 99, were at the unveiling of a City of the Future when suddenly people in the city (and soon all over the world) began rioting. Other disasters started happening as well, with several people acting out of character.

Sometimes, you have to know the right buttons to push. )

Hopefully, this won't have been posted between the time I started and the time this uploads. Cover and four pages from this week's JLA/99 #1.

For those of you who haven't been around for previous discussions, "The Ninety-Nine" is a concept created by Naif al-Mutawa, in an effort to let kids from Muslim-majority countries have superhero comics they could read with at least some cultural approval. Each of the teenagers in the 99 gets their powers from bonding with a "Noor stone" which contains a fragment of the knowledge and wisdom of the ancient Middle East. Their code names come from the 99 names of Allah, minus the bit that makes them a god's name. As part of the themes of the series, while individual members are fairly powerful on their own, they are much more powerful if they link up in threes or more to combine their abilities.



Wonder Woman's costume seems to be the "alternate universe" one solely to allow this comic to be reprinted in countries where her swimsuit outfit would be too controversial; the JLA depicted seems to be one we've never seen together before.

In the tradition of crossovers, multiple crises around the world. )

The Web and the Shield have already have been posted to Scans_Daily. Now here are the debut stories of the remaining two Red Circle characters.

I'm posting these two together since their two origins sort of form one long, single story together.

Seven Hangman pages, seven Inferno pages... )

McDuffie having gotten booted off JLA for telling it like it is, DC passed the baton to Robinson, but he was still too busy with CRY THAT THE WRITING'S SO BAD FOR JUSTICE to jump on right away, I guess, because they've got Len Wein doing a filler arc about the Royal Flush Gang.

Which I'm actually rather liking, for reasons which are probably fairly obvious under the cut.
