DC Comics Presents #94: And Fun Times Were Had in Metropolis

Harbinger/Lady Quark/Pariah are my favourite side-character trio, and I'm glad at least one issue addressed what they did after Crisis on Infinite Earths before they showed up again in War of the Gods. DC Comics Presents...#94 "Challenge of the Volt Lord!" is a great silly little issue in which Lady Quark gets a love interest, Harbinger laments not having a boyfriend, and Pariah gets taken to a night-club. A punk nightclub. Oh, and they're all BFFs with Superman, which is just marvellous.

Backstory: Whilst touring the Earth to find out more about our weird ways and update the Monitor's Tapes, Harbinger, Lady Quark and Pariah arrive in Metropolis to find out more about new heroes emerging such as Booster Gold (sadly not featured). During a television interview with Clark Kent, Lady Quark meets the ~mysterious~ and ~handsome~ Eric Courtney, with whom she begins a relationship. Meanwhile, Superman is having trouble with a new villain, who calls himself Lord Volt and wants to take over the world for some reason or other they didn't really need reasons back then did they.

Oh, and Superman hugs a puppy.

Cue A-Team music. )

Regarding page count - the issue is 24 pages without advertisements etc. included, so I make one third of that eight pages. This post features six full pages, and then lots of little panels that together add up to a further two pages. (One 2/3s of a page, and four 1/3s of a page). That's eight altogether. :3
