Showcase Saturday 6.9.18

Showcase Saturdays

I show you what I bought, you take a look, then, hopefully, you come back tomorrow to see which of these comics – if any; I might choose something else entirely – I write about.

That sums it up. Here’s the part where you take a look:

From DC:
THE LEGION BY DAN ABNETT AND ANDY LANNING VOL. 2 – Following the destruction of a Legion Outpost, Saturn Girl, Brainiac 5.1, Chameleon, Umbra, Kid Quantum, Live Wire, Apparition and Monstress are lost on the far side of the universe. As they journey home, the team encounters a superhero known as Singularity and a creature called the Omniphagos—a world-destroying monster imprisoned in a “hard light” pyramid. Collects LEGION LOST #1-12.

THE MAN OF STEEL #2 – With an arsonist loose in Metropolis, Superman’s powers are almost useless in finding the culprit. And back at the Daily Planet, everyone wants to know what’s going on with Lois Lane. How can Clark hold on to the secret of what happened to Lois and Jon much longer?




THE UNEXPECTED #1 – In the aftermath of DARK NIGHTS: METAL, the DC Universe has been forever changed as new heroes are called out of the shadows. Amid this all is Janet Fals…Firebrand! Once a paramedic dedicated to saving lives, she must now start a fight once every 24 hours to feed the Conflict Engine that’s replaced her heart. But Janet’s heart isn’t just a curse—it’s a beacon, drawing out both the mysterious Neon the Unknown and the seductive, malevolent Bad Samaritan. One of them wants to cut out her heart, the other wants to save it—but neither of them knows the true danger hidden within that will kick off a superhero manhunt ranging from Thanagar to the deepest heart of the Dark Multiverse!

WONDER WOMAN ANNUAL #2 – “Star Light”! An enormous, divine threat has the Star Sapphires in its sights—and only Wonder Woman can protect them! She’s wielded their ring before, but the Corps has changed since then…is even their combined power enough to stop a god?

From Dynamite:
RED SONJA #16 – Here it is, at last, the battle that’s been brewing back and forth across the centuries: Red Sonja vs. Kulan Gath for the fate of Meru! The wizard is more powerful than he’s ever been, but Sonja is joined by some unexpected allies… the city of Shamballah will shake in this fight to the finish — Hell or Hyrkania ends here!

RED SONJA/TARZAN #2 – The Lord of the Jungle and the She-Devil with a Sword find themselves up against an enemy who uses methods they cannot comprehend. In different times and places, our heroes must seek out the assistance they need to stop the evil Eson Duul before he destroys both of their worlds.

One thought on “Showcase Saturday 6.9.18

  1. I’d pick the wonder women just because I want to hear your thoughts on the Lantern colors and how they work (or don’t) now in Rebirth.

    Either Red Sonja for the 2nd choice

    And something from the vault for a 3rd.
