DC Comics’ two oldest series give us some insight into Mr. Oz, now revealed as Jor-El, who has been keeping tabs on heroes and villains since last year. In Action Comics, he tries to show Superman that Earth isn’t worthy of him. Over in Detective Comics, Red Robin Tim Drake tries to outmaneuver the man who has kept him a prisoner.
Another week of news has come and gone. Let’s take a look at what’s happened over the last few days.
We’re starting YEAR TWO of the Geekery today, so let’s take a look at what’s been going on in the world.
The seminal work of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons – the 12-issue maxiseries Watchmen – seems to have been constantly in development in one way or another since it debuted in 1986. Even with a theatrical release in 2009, it seems there’s still more to the story.
The third chapter of THE BUTTON, in this week’s issue of Batman, packs an emotional punch, but does it answer any of the questions about the the button, or the missing time the planet is experiencing?
The Fastest Man Alive and the Dark Knight Detective flop through the timeline to investigate THE BUTTON, but wind up in a place that shouldn’t exist in the latest issue of The Flash.
Josie and the Pussycats get kidnapped to an Antarctic ice palace to stand trial for plagiarism in another issue chock full of somewhat random references.
The next big DC Event that is supposed to give clues to the whole mystery of Rebirth kicked off on Wednesday, as Batman decides to examine THE BUTTON discovered in the Batcave during Rebirth last May. He probably doesn’t like what he finds.
In the last set of reviews for last week’s releases, The Flash gives hints towards next month’s 4-part crossover between Flash and Batman.
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.
