We’re looking at members of the Superman and Batman families in their books over the last three weeks or so.
Oliver travels to Metropolis to confront Lex Luthor in Green Arrow and General Zod’s end game is revealed as his revenge squad battles Team Superman in Action Comics. Plus, more reviews!
As Rebirth seeks to set things down a new, yet familiar, path for DC Comics, we have the opportunity to meet characters again for the first time. Last week, a Superman villain created more than a decade ago made his return, and I am very excited about that.
We finish off the week of comic books with a couple heroes trying to gain access to their memories. Superman attempts to make sense of his origin after the REBORN story in Action Comics, while the Demon’s Head urges Batman to access his memory in Detective Comics. In The Flash, Barry and Iris have a bit of an issue while a mole is suspected at STAR Labs.
The final installment of the SUPERMAN REBORN story hits the latest issue of Action Comics. Anyone who was hoping for more answers – myself included – on all that’s been going on with Rebirth may have to wait just a little bit longer.
Previously in 10 Things I’d Do If I Ran DC Or Marvel Comics: I’d reduce the number of books being published from 70-100 to a mere 25. No character or team would have more than one book at a time. Giant crossover events are OVER. And continuity would become a thing of the past.
All of the storylines in the Superman books since Rebirth are coming to a head right here, as we find out who the fake Clark is and we get closer to Mr. Oz’s identity in a special supersized issue of Action Comics.
The first crossover for Superman and Action Comics kicks off and anyone hoping to find out answers to the questions that have been building since last summer will… just have to wait until the second issue of the crossover…
The final set of comics for the week focuses on the Trinity and their continuing adventures. Action Comics tells the tale of two Lois Lanes; a new adventure kicks off in Detective Comics; and Wonder Woman continues to deal with Diana’s inability to find Paradise Island.
We’re finishing up with the overflow from last week in today’s edition. The final two books from last Wednesday’s pull feature the World’s Finest – Batman and Superman – in the two oldest books DC Comics publishes. They also happen to be two of the best books DC Comics is publishing under the DC Rebirth umbrella.
