It didn't do so for the physical world with its main character, who was hunting a killer in the Cloud World of the AIs.

It did so for the physical world with two of the supporting characters.

One was a detective working the case of the robot that'd killed.

The other programmed that kind of robot.

Their conversation turned to development. )

The Joker and the Stag (the ritual murderer of exemplars introduced in last year's Batman Annual) knocked him out.

He woke up restrained.

" Exciting! " smiled the Joker.

" I wasn't sure you'd wake up this time. "

Batman took in his surroundings. )

"I'm honored to be a part of bringing Centipede to life and to be allowed to do it in a somewhat less than conventional and dangerous way. Expect many mushrooms."

- Max Bemis

"My favorite aspect of working on Centipede: Game Over is being able to take the core concept and expand on it in a way the original couldn't at the time. That means developing a whole new world - one that's similar to ours but not quite - and tearing it all down again from the very first issue. So, if you like your post-apocalyptic, last-man-on-Earth scenarios to be dripping with a tongue-in-cheek self-awareness and dry sense of humor, you're going dig what we're doing on this."

It's another take on Magnus, Robot Fighter.

Like the other Gold Key revamps set up in The Sovereigns #0, it's tangential to its source material.

This Magnus doesn't hurt robots with her bare hands.

She helps them with her words. She's a psychologist for robots.

It's the year 2020. Those robots, the servants that humanity built, want freedom.

They've achieved a measure of it- they have a world for their consciousnesses to thrive in.

Those consciousnesses are stifled outside that world.

Humans don't care about the health of AI unless it affects them directly. )

He'd found the successor of the legacy he was holding in trust.

He'd also found the author of many of Bangalla's recent troubles.

He and his allies had that man captured.

They let him go without asking any questions, because they didn't trust his answers.

Their reasons for that were entirely logical. )

He'd met her first when he'd shot at her, and second when she had him at gunpoint.

They both escaped from the lair of the Vultures, the mercenaries they were in too deep with.

Forty-eight hours later, he and his friend were explaining themselves to her.

She was listening. )

The 23nd Phantom, Lothar Kehwabe, and his ally Guran faced a problem.

Their attempted infiltration of the Vultures, who were running operations befitting their name across Bangalla from its capital of Mawitaan, was requiring them to shoot someone taken prisoner.

Guran, who'd been handed the gun, passed it to Lothar- who pulled the trigger.

The Vultures' eyepatched leader Arturo jerked his arm aside at the last second, laughing.

He didn't really want the prisoner dead, because he needed to find some things out from her first.

He did want to test them, though.

He seemed satisfied with their performance. )

It's part of their King imprint.

Its protagonist's the 22nd Phantom's successor.

He doesn't consider himself the 23rd.

That's not for want of self-confidence. )

It began in the year 2520.

It then jumped back five hundred years, to King Turok of the Lost Valley.

He stood, a troubled protector.

To his brother Andar, he spoke again of his dreams.

" I dreamt of a great death, taking root in my valley and spreading throughout the world.

" A roaring shadow.. "

It was not an appropriate dream for the occasion. )

They popped up on top of the Fleet.

A Raptor went below that, down to the planet where the Fleet was mining for resources.

It went to evac the few who hadn't yet been- Doctor Baltar, Apollo, Helo, and Tallos.

That last, that supposedly tame rebuilt patchwork Cylon Centurion of the doctor's, stole the Raptor and left.

Baltar took it in stride- he figured the Galactica could send another.

" Centurions are built for battle, of course. Tallos simply couldn't wait to join. "

" Yeah- " said Helo, " but on whose side? "

Above them, man and machine fought on their expected sides. )

The video was a suicide note, left by a human-type Cylon, an Eight.

She'd made it shortly before killing herself; in it, she'd claimed responsibility for the recent incident involving Tallos, Doctor Baltar's supposedly tame pet reconstructed Cylon Centurion.

The discussion turned to Tallos' actions during the incident- why had it acted to preserve its own life?

It was a Cylon, after all- " death " for it just meant transmission to a Resurrection Ship.

Doctor Baltar made a suggestion.

It was partly that of the Six in his head. )

"When the teenage brothers Frank and Joe Hardy are accused of the murder of their father – a detective in the small resort town of Bayport – they must team up with the femme fatale Nancy Drew to prove their innocence (and find the real guilty party in the process) in a twisting, hard-boiled tale, complete with double-crosses, deceit and dames."

It's not one out of tune with the rest of Dynamite's work featuring King Features characters.

It's one that's a little more apparent, because of the exaggeration of Jesse Hamm's art.

The lightness of Jeff Parker's writing is also a bit more so than previous efforts.

Some of those were his. )

The human Cylons hidden in the Fleet feared it.

So did the humans of the Fleet, especially with the evidence that it- Tallos, as Baltar had named it with his sense of aptness- might still have some will of its own.

Though Baltar believed he'd straightened out that problem, Commander Adama still worried.

To test his worries, he had the human Cylon they knew about (the instance of the Number Eight model that Helo and Starbuck'd brought back with them from Caprica) taken out of the brig and put before Tallos, so that they could see if the reprogrammed Centurion would obey human orders even when another Cylon was there.

The moment Tallos saw the one Helo still called Sharon, he broke his bonds and threw aside those around him.

Everyone reacted unsurprisingly. )

Frank and Joe Hardy, the Hardy perennials (Sorry, couldn't resist) of the "plucky teenage detective genre" have a new series coming from Dynamite in a couple of months, and Dynamite Entertainment have released details, covers, and model sheets via entertainment Weekly, and they seem to have going a VERY different route this time.

Which should surprise no one, since the Hardy Boys have been re-invented more times than Batman in their ninety year history, spanning multiple book imprints, two TV series (three counting the Mickey Mouse Club adaption), a psychedelic 60's cartoon, comics and graphic novels..

This time around we seem to be looking at something akin to Hardy Boys Noir, as a very different Nancy Drew joins them in...

It began before that, with an explosion in the sky.

Colonel Steve Austin fell. He lost his legs, his arm, his eye.

He gained faster, better, stronger replacements- had gained, because that'd already happened.

He thought he was reliving that in dreams again- except the voice in his head said he wasn't.

He woke up, wondering who that was.

He realized where he was. )

He rebuilt a Centurion, because his ego was provoked.

He unveiled it to the Fleet.

He brought it online, and it took a knee.. before Sharon Valerii (not the one who was Boomer, but the one who would later be Athena), the tolerated Cylon prisoner.

That was a surprise. )

Like Dynamite's last Flash series, it's written by Jeff Parker.

Unlike Dynamite's last Flash series, it's drawn by Jesse Hamm.

His art's definitely not Evan Shaner's.

That's not at all a bad thing. )
