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.

The new issue of Teen Titans is out today, and it's a kind of breather issue between Big Epic Battle Sequences - the one we've just finished with Trigon & Co., and the upcoming Forever Evil sub-issues (numbered #23.1 and #23.2) featuring Trigon and Deathstroke.

You'll recall that last issue ended a little something like this:

Titans? Anyone? HELP? )

We have a guest artist in Robson Rocha this issue, whose pencils are serviceable, and inker Wayne Faucher. But I continue to hate the coloring jobs we're getting on this book.

[personal profile] shadowpsykie already posted four three pages of how Diana got here. Here's three one more pages showing how Diana gets the best of Nemesis.

As seen below, Original Flavor Diana is now a host for Nemesis. Clotho split off a fragment of Di, her innocent self, and created the Odyssey world to keep her safe and have her raised in the Amazon tradition despite the destruction of the island. As they fight, Nemesis!Di explains that she doesn't need nu!Diana to keep her foothold in the world, but to keep the world's hatred and murder flowing, she has to bring its greatest noblest warrior to heel. So she set about destroying everyone and everything nu!Diana loves, to crush her spirit and make her hate the modern world.

nu!Diana drops the little sketch of Wonder Woman her young friend gave her at Nemesis' feet, and explains that as she lived in the modern world she became part of it - its inhabitants are her brothers and sisters now. So, she's still a noble champion.

And that's where we piick things up here )

"It didn't work. It could never work...The soul of an amazon could never be bent to your brand of hate. I could NEVER be your champion," Diana says to the fading out of the Morrigan.

But she doesn't notice the Morrigan reappear behind her, and grab the big-ass sword. "In that case, Diana of Themiscyra...YOU CAN DIE!!!" dun dun DUNNNNN

We're not quite done with the Odyssey ride yet, but 610 gives us a glimpse of light at the end of the tunnel. 4 pages.

You'll recall that in 609, Dr. Psycho took Diana on a jaunt through an interdimensional space and showed her several of her potential selves/origins, then told her to "create herself." She then fought her way through the forces of nature - metaphorical, I guess - to a Themysciran temple flanked by columns of variant Wonder Women, where Diana recommitted herself to being an avatar of Truth and Justice, I guess.

Then she woke up. In a hospital bed. Being tended to by Dr. Etta Candy. And Nurse D. Prince.

Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? )

So that's a glimpse of the new setting Wondy's apparently going to settle in. There's at least one more page that has to be posted here; personally I'm thinking [personal profile] bluefall is just the one to do it. :D

Oh, and in other news, Dawny's finally out of that healing coma and ready to zip off into action - and stiff Dr. G'ym'll on his fee. :D About 3 and 2/3 pages from the current issue.

Inspired by bluefall's posting on Catwoman's Post-Crisis origin and how Batman influenced her, here are two pages from CATWOMAN (Vol 1) #94. The story is written by John Francis Moore, and the art is by Staz Johnson and Wayne Faucher. They do a good job copying/riffing/homaging David Mazzucchelli's style for YEAR ONE flashbacks.

Any whoring is carefully not mentioned. )
