  1. Another fantastic batch of concepts! Even a GvE homage!

    The Next Karate Kid is the best in the Kid series? I try not to argue taste (taking a page out of Michael Bailey’s book), but c’mon….

  2. JUSTICE LEAGUE EXTREME #1
    written by BRANDON THOMAS
    art & cover by BRAD GREEN
    variant cover by PHIL CHO
    card stock variant cover by ED BENES
    Bloodwynd is no hero. The mysterious dark mage of death has his own agenda, which he preferred to pursue in isolation. Outed by his nemesis, the necromancer briefly played at being a champion during a time of unprecedented tumult, when the world’s greatest super-heroes were threatened with extermination. The savage Kryptonian behemoth Doomsday beat Superman into a coma. Hulking criminal mastermind Bane broke the Batman. The minions of the war god Ares saw to the demise of a Wonder Woman. The multiversal destroyer Anti-Monitor extinguished the Flash. Alien tyrant Mongul drove Green Lantern mad. Extraterrestrial terror Imperiex obliterated Aquaman. The worshipers of Darkseid, Lord of Apokolips, executed Martian Manhunter. Through his necromancy, Bloodwynd recognized that these magnificent seven crusaders were tied mystically to the fate of all creation, and he stepped up to defend all of existence… including, especially, his own.

    Then came Judgment Day, when the Overmaster and his Cadre arrived to witness the end of the Earth. Bloodwynd was cosmically aware that this moment was beyond him, that all hope rested with the Justice League. He merely watched as the universe ended… and began again. Like tumbling dominoes, the events set in motion by Doomsday led to Hal Jordan becoming Parallax, and with other terrorists against time itself, unleashed entropic energies that annihilated the universe. Only a handful of heroes remained at the Vanishing Point to restart everything with a Big Bang. Today, another Crisis in Time has begun, and many of the horsemen of the previous apocalypse rise again… without any of the Magnificent Seven to meet them. The Septuplicate is essential for salvation, a search for seven successors, an extreme form of Justice League.

    Reignman has been born through the melding of the corpse of the Cyborg Superman Zor-El, further enhanced with the automations of John Henry Irons, controlled by the intelligence of the Kryptonian Eradicator. The unjustly exiled Amazon Artemis has chosen to wear the indignity on her back, in the discarded garb of her fallen sister Diana from her own hour of disgrace, as a living Requiem. Freed from Mother’s control and picking up where The Colony left off, the genetically engineered and psychologically programmed killer Jean-Paul Valley is among the sole standing vigilantes defending Gotham from Leviathan, within his sealed Knightfall battle armor. Arrived from a catastrophic near-future where his family perished before his eyes, Walter West takes no prisoners with the crimson quickness of Dark Flash. Compelled by the Life Entity within his White Power Battery to defend their home world against aliens, Kyle Rayner returns to Earth to wield nearly limitless powers over creation as the Omega Lantern. Obsessed with reclaiming the throne for his bloodline, Arthur Curry’s only surviving son, the berserker Koryak, would rule as Aquamaster.

    The return of Mongul to Coast City attracts several of these anti-heroes who have faced him in the past, and understand the danger he normally represents. However, the flaxen fiend has not come alone, and his fellows’ reach and menace in unfathomable. What is the Superman Death Squad, and what purpose could it still serve in a world without the Man of Tomorrow? And what of these would-be heroes? Are they all that they seem, and could there be just as much of a threat within their ranks as without?

  3. ATOMIC #12
    written by TOM KING
    art & cover by RAGS MORALES
    Eight-fingered private dick Jonny Double had rarely seen the good side of luck in this life, but with Cinder & Ashe he’d managed to thwart Kobra once again by keeping his scaly mitts off the alien-assisted Combine’s “Hotwire” armor. But on the other hand, the one down two fingers, White Lotus had taken it for Baron Katana instead…

    After founding Symbolix with dark money, Egrin Wahrman created three projects employing different methods of metahuman eugenics. Proteus yielded a wholly artificial being, Splatter, a beast suitable only for henchwork. Niobe introduced a fertilized egg into a human host– the egg supplied by Baron Reiter and Gudra the Valkyrie. Telemachus infused DNA into a naturally born metahuman, bolstered by additional samples taken from the Justice League and absorbed through the malleable genetic structure made possible by Martian elements. The corpse of Grant Emerson still retained this essential quality, which with the proper stimulus would allow it to absorb and devour Ethan Avery, possessed of a similar late life genetic adaptiveness…

    Black Adam is too blinded by his gratitude to the wizard Jarble for restoring his and Isis’ life to recognize his horrifying ambitions. It’s up to Atom Smasher to convince the Sivanas that Osiris’ blood lust knows no bounds, but he sees the nuclear missiles as holding the potential for satiety…

    Under orders from Black Manta, scientist Thomas Dinawa hired Deathstroke the Terminator to murder his associate Ryan Choi in order to steal and replicate Ray Palmer’s shrinking technology. This was done to allow for the creation of the miniature undersea kingdom Onyx, which Manta intends to serve as a sanctuary exclusively for people of African descent in anticipation of another mass extinction event like the one that struck NYC in 1985…

    Colonel Thomas Tomorrow Jr.’s mental state continues to deteriorate over the unknown fate of his Vertisol-infected infant son Horatio, in the hands of Leo Konroy, while “Gravedigger” Anderson turns the screws…

    Betrayed by his own men in Freedom’s Ring, Steve Trevor must decide whether to attempt escape or join their combined effort with the Nuclear Legion to invade Pokolistan…

    Acting on information of the future gained during the Crisis on Infinite Earths, Terry Kurtzberger crafted Cyclotron to avenge the victims of the Fourth Reich by insuring a final solution to resurging Nazis in the 21st Century…

    Surviving Eddie Fyers’ attempt on his life through the timely arrival of Phantasm, Ralph Dibny tries to reach Ray Palmer to thwart the Ninth Circle’s revived Codename: Watchmen. As often happens with matters involving Adrian Veidt, the time for rescue has passed. While Iron Butterfly stands over the fallen Hawkman, it’s the Atom’s satellite League versus the Shadow Cabinet for the fate of the globe…

    Dharma’s vision of the future contained a blind spot– an event that occurs which leaves existence a torturous ruin. For the greater good, he allowed hundreds to be killed in the Dakota City “Big Bang” in order to create a handful of “Bang Babies.” These metahumans would either aid him or stop him, reply hazy, ask again later. His world was growing cold– dying– being claimed by entropy unleashed by the being known as Parallax. In a bid to save his existence, the man who had been Harry Chawney assumed the power of Rift to make worlds collide, retroactively, permanently, in response to the Infinite Crisis. For a brief moment, this seemed to cauterize the wound, but the bleeding has begun again. The fire this time must burn brighter, the Agni must be stoked. “If the radiance of a thousand suns were to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One…”

    Following the disintegration of Jason Rusch, and Ronnie Raymond having been trapped inside the Firestorm Matrix with the putrid but animated corpse of Martin Stein, the Nuclear Man is more than a little bit triggered. With Shadowstorm having taken possession of Pozhar, and Firestorm compromised, the potential theater of destruction widens.

    Whatever the fate of his home planet, Doctor Manhattan secures a place in the future for baby Christopher Ambler…

  4. 21st CENTURY COSMIC BOY #8
    Written by ROBBIE THOMPSON & DAVID BARNETT
    art by POP MHAN
    cover by MATTHEW CLARK
    Long believed to have perished during the Crisis on Infinite Earths, the crystal-shaping Kole was created to survive a nuclear holocaust, making her exceptionally tough to kill. However, she did not wish to carry on as a known heroine, though she did once aid the Titans in secret during a vampire uprising. Kole returns to a world on the edge of realizing her parent’s worst fears, with vital information for Cosmic Boy and the Teen Titans. Despite Beast Boy’s best intentions in keeping her away from his Ravengers business, Raven’s life has taken a worse turn in his absence toward The Church of Blood. While a familial connection to Azrael may have been disproven by Dawnstar, Brother Blood still intends for both of his former acolytes to procreate. Though Lady Zand recognizes the value in a grandchild of Trigon with the innate abilities of a Kryptonian, she also sees this as a tipping point in her power struggle, and a wedge in her alliance with H.I.V.E. Just as Sister Blood secures the would-be bride, Lady Zand dispatches the Brotherhood of Blood (Sonar, Phobia, Plasmus, Fisherman, Silverback, & Warp) to intercept. Regardless of Starfire’s necessary search for her sister by blood, she can’t turn away from the desperate need of a sister of the heart…

    ACTION COMICS FAMILY #1031
    written by BECKY CLOONAN
    art by JAMAL IGLE
    cover by ERIC GAPSTUR
    variant cover by SERGIO CARIELLO
    In the lost year following the Infinite Crisis, Lois and Clark took advantage of his missing powers to conceive their only son, Jonathan Samuel Kent. They initially tried to make things work in Metropolis, but life without Superman meant Clark couldn’t maintain his journalism career and raise an infant. Returning to help Ma Kent tend to the family farm, Lois was once again introduced to a Superman, this time the last son of the doomed Earth-0. This Superman struggled to fill Clark Kent’s shoes at the Daily Planet and with his own feelings for Lois, ultimately romancing Wonder Woman in her stead. Upon Superman-Zero’s death, both Clark and Lana Lang regained their long absent abilities, and the original Man of Steel could finally have it all. Or so it seemed, as the toddler Jon Kent was kidnapped by the mysterious survivor Jor-El of Krypton-0 and carried across time and space. Superman pursued his “father,” but their travels saw Jon age to preadolescence and begin to develop Kryptonian powers.

    Since the death of Clark, the mother and son team of Lois and Jon have sought answers, keeping a close eye on LexCorp, Cadmus, and Intergang (or in the latter case, noting their absence.) The movements of would-be stand-ins like the members of Strikeforce Superman are very concerning. The House of El has a long history with the Legion of Super-Heroes, and their varied appearances in the 21st Century are cause for alarm regarding exactly what future they represent. Specifically, the moves of the Fatal Five– seeking a Phantom Zone Projector– to what end? Finally, what is the “Superman Secundus,” and what role will Jon play in determining it?

    Adam’s recent cohorts aboard the Iron Raider; the pirates Lobo, Toragg, Neex, Valda, Gana, and Hierophant; are ready for their payment. Adam was set to offer them all of Rann for all he cared, only to find the planet’s inhabitants ravaged by the same Zeta tumors that are killing him. Further, the world is presently occupied by the Khund, who see it as strategically significant against the Citadel and any potential land grab by Thanagar. Chastity Hex may be more than she appears, and her bounty hunting partner Jonas Glim has serious reservations about staring down his old buddy ‘Bo. Even Green Lantern Kilowog may not be up to keeping the peace under these circumstances!

    cover by ALAN DAVIS
    Holy cow– we’re not cancelled yet? You heard the part about the cowboys and the Armageddon 2001 callbacks and the Inferior 5? Huh. Okay. Well, Kana the Secret Shadow Warrior had been lost on Dinosaur Island since the Korean War, and guided the Suicide Company to Monarch, who sent them to die in an arena of gladiatorial combat. This one though was from a post-Kamandi timeline where Lex Luthor used the Firestorm Matrix to bond with Superman-Prime of the 853rd Century to do a Hunger Games by way of Planet of the Apes. Ambush Bug and the 5 have to battle past Dio, Prior Hearst, and Ulysses Hazard to try closing the bridge to the time of the Electric Warriors, but then the decapitated Per Degaton shows up wearing Mekanique, and it’s all part of the Time Trapper’s plan. So basically, my money’s on thirteen for the ax!

Within a few years, The War had begun, with Champion serving in the Marines, and Blake committed to The Atari Institute. Despite this tangle of associations, it took decades for these two cosmic explorers to collide. Upon hearing of the Dark Destroyer’s return, Champion immediately wants to confront the threat, and butts heads with Comet over the next course of action.

Having finally gotten word to Rip Jagger in Nanda Parbat, Judomaster joins Peacemaker and Thunderbolt to investigate the so-called “Watchmen.” Back in the present, Jaime is shocked to learn from his parents that they are U.S. citizens, but somehow also illegal immigrants? Plus, the Reach are met by Australia’s Sleeping Soldiers (Dreamer, Thunderer, The Argonaut, Dark Ranger, Miss Midnight, Tasmanian Devil, and Umbaluru), who feel compelled to help upon learning they are part of a new Alien Alliance on a humanitarian mission to rescue captive extra-terrestrials.

    A lifetime of bad behavior and worse business has dogpiled Jock Verner, who’s added arson, insurance fraud, and attempted murder to a rap sheet liable to see him buried under the prison. Not that it matters much to Jock now, but J. Wilbur Wolfingham managed to swindle Verner’s stake in the Blue Devil film for what amounts to commissary credits, and in conning another crook, finally stands to see a windfall. With Verner Brothers Studio sold to AT&T, Blue Devil is being absorbed into the DC Extended Universe, guaranteeing that at minimum the movie couldn’t be the worst in its class. It’s a funny picture though, so the Snyder stans will still hate it. The social media mea culpa of sex pest Sharon Scott and relapsed junkie Wayne Tarrant seem to have been accepted by the general public. And finally, proud papa Santiago Ramírez will finally see his name under “Directed By” on an IMAX screen as part of a big glitzy Hollywood red carpet premiere. What could go wrong?

  6. Just a great episode and great ideas. As crazy as it sounds, I want to read both your Kalista books!! Words I never thought I’d say … ever. Honestly, I think this might be the toughest issue to date.

    Katana
    Written by James Tynion

    Variant covers Bill Sienkiewicz

    Katana was always told her sword was a soul stealer, that the souls of those slain were imprisoned in the blade. But that was wrong. The sword did rip souls out of the slain. But it was actually a transfer device, shoving the souls into Katana herself, keeping her young, vital, and imbuing her with some healing and strength. As. As her soul remained pure, the trapped souls would have no other influence.

    But as the years go on and Katana becomes more bitter and jaded, the voices of the souls within her, evil twisted psyches, begin whispering to her. Can she ignore them? Will she succumb to them? Or will her outlook on the world change back to a pure view so she can continue her heroics undaunted.

A last minute objection is voiced by wedding crasher Knodar, who tells Booster his and Landor’s stories, which combined with Lyle’s last encounter with the Master of Doom bodes ill for the 21st Century.

Now Jocelyn will owe Captain Adym and Grimbor another favor, in order to visit him on the hi-tech prison planet Takron-Galtos.

Speaking of the bizness, they’ve discovered a great way to pass their free time that doesn’t involve stuffy SP uniforms.

    THE LANTERN CORPS #79
    written by JOHN RIDLEY
    art by TONY AKINS
    cover by PHIL JIMENEZ
    To save his only son, Jor-El of the doomed planet Krypton used an experimental teleportation ray modeled after an Almeracian device to send the toddler Kal-El to Earth. Raised in New England by the childless middle-class couple Jerry & Naomi Kent, “Clark” was unaware of his extraterrestrial origins. Prince Ultraa of Almerac had similarly fled to Earth years earlier, raised in the Australian Outback by Aborigines as Jack Grey, before developing superhuman powers. The same teleportation theories that had shifted the alien boys across worlds also allowed one to traverse parallel dimensions, so Ultraa chose to move to a reality more resembling something out of comic books than the grounded existence that he had left behind. Keenly aware of the damage superpowers could have on an otherwise simple Earth, Ultraa continued to monitor his adoptive home, and investigated once Kal-El of Krypton-Prime exhibited his special abilities as a teenager. A “Crisis on Infinite Earths” was taking place, and when a wave of anti-matter energy wiped out their old universe, Ultraa helped Kal-El escape to his “New Earth.” While Ultraa tried to train the lad in the use of his Kryptonian abilities, it swiftly became apparent that this superboy was simply too reckless and too powerful, even within this heightened reality. For the safety of all, Kal-El was consigned to a tiny pocket “Paradise Dimension” with Alexander Luthor Junior of Earth-3 and the aging Kal-L and Lois Lane of Earth-Two. Over time, Kal-El-Prime fixated on somehow rescuing his former girlfriend Laurie Lemmon, and generally became deranged because of his losses. Frustrated and unrestrained with singular strength, Superboy-Prime began throttling reality itself with his incomparable might, fracturing the remaining multiverse into hairline tangents. Like Krona before him, Superboy-Prime was causing a crisis of infinite threat and proportion, leading to multiple engagements with the Lantern Corps. Now, though incarcerated in the Monsterlands, Superboy-Prime is stirring again, and only his new friend Volthoom can truly relate to his predicament…

  8. THE SATELLITE LEAGUE #1
    written by G. WILLOW WILSON
    art & cover by PAUL SMITH
    Spinning out of the pages of DOOMSDAY CLOCK & ATOMIC! The Shadow Lords’ trap has been sprung, bringing about a new world order. Their Stormwatch Intercontinental now patrols the globe, capable of putting down any threats to their planetary rule. With the Justice League no more, numerous other challengers neutralized, and even the alien refugees being deported from Earth, their control appears complete.

    Despite faltering at Shadowspire, there is yet a collective of heroes to fight back against these nihilistic fascists. Aided by Staq Mavlen before his demise, Ray Palmer located the 30th Century telepath Imra Ardeen within a dank prison, the captive of Adrian Veidt. Her own mission to save Superman, Johnny Thunder, and the new Rorschach Reggie Long has failed, but Veidt himself offered a path to redemption. The son of Erika Manson and Marcos Maez held special meaning to Doctor Manhattan, who left the boy to be raised by the former Silk Spectre and Nite-Owl in 1992. That boy, now adult, is somewhere on Earth with the full inheritance of power from his “foster father,” capable of correcting the time stream to save… everyone?

    Dr. Osterman had prophesied before his disappearance, “In the year 2020, Superman’s timeline is bombarded by the reckless energies of the Old Gods, once again warping the Metaverse.” Instead, the New Gods brought about his end in that year, or have they? So many threads to pull on this harrowing new reality, and who better than the survivors of the classic Justice League, joined by their proud legacy from 1,000 years in the future? The Atom and Saturn Girl escape with Elongated Man, Hawkman and Hawkwoman, herself drawn to reunite her cohorts in serving The Life Entity during Brightest Day. But first, they need allies and a base to plan their next moves, and after a quick stop for Sue Dibny, they are directed to Monument Point, Virginia. Former mayor Jay Garrick is also under fire from the government after aiding XS & Kid Flash against A.C.E., and is ready to get back into the race as The Flash. Hot in pursuit is the Shadow Cabinet, led by the aged Veidt’s heir apparent, Cleopatra Pak… the villainess Nostalgia.

    cover by LANCE HAUNROGUE
    With the Baronry Conflict escalated to the nth degree and the action moving eastward, Sarge Steel determines that a second regional branch of Task Force X would be necessary. Guilt-ridden over her failure to act on concerns about Markovia, the former Outsider swordwoman Katana has agreed to lead this suicide squad. Her first mission is simply to establish a base of operations in the region, except the Sarge insists upon the lawless nation of New Gamorra. Merely reaching the island and navigating its underworld promises to be a lethal proposition. Assisting Katana will be her second in command, Munira “Muni” Khairuddin, also known as Obscura. Those conscripted into this grinding initial mission include the nanite-enabled unkillable Xombi; the vampire biker Screech; Kwai, the last incarnation of an ancient Chinese mythological being (and former gang member;) the power-armored Khmer Rako, with his X-Ionizer sword capable of splitting Captain Atom; Tats and the supernatural constructs manifested from her illustrated body; the cyborg Server Aja; and the Syrian terrorist Darkwolf. Can this “hari-kari clan” pass through the gauntlet to reach Nanto City, and what will be left of them if they do?

    Tempest’s Squadron follows the Overmaster’s ship as it hovers above the Republic of Tynanda. Once Overmaster disembarks in Gamin City, the heroes prepare to confront the menacing giant. However, Overmaster insists that he’s only arrived to watch the show in Europe, and points out the role Deathstorm will play in his nuclear fusion with the reserve A.L.L.S.T.A.R. Ronnie Raymond! Well out of his depths, the submarine cyborg General Haifisch attempts to recruit Overmaster for the cause of the Final Reich, and the spectacle has drawn the attention of the Ravagers, but is this all just a distraction from the true threat?

    Insect Queen variant cover by JAMES SHERMAN
    With a homicidal Superboy on the loose, the Contessa directs the Agenda to ready another Kon-El clone. Using remains retrieved from Doctor Calligan, she wishes to insure her Strikeforce will be enough to take down Jonathan Lane Kent. At LexCorp, Luthor welcomes J.L.K. and his adoptive father Harvest’s “final solution” to the metahuman problem, offering the resources of himself and like-minded individuals to their ends. Abandoned by his co-creation Reignman, John Henry Irons tries to exploit his temporary access to Cadmus’ systems, but runs afoul of Maribel and Little Knipper. Lana Lang, Chris Kent, Natasha Irons, and Andrew Pulaski attend the funeral of Michael Henderson, the last Guardian. Also in attendance is Jamie Harper, and her daughter by Mon-El. Lee, the former Linda Danvers, is headed to Bete Noire to check on Kandor when she finds herself seated next to a talkative Wally Johnson. Thanks to the information provided by Hector Hammond on the Earth-0 Superman, the Contessa confronts Lana about her long and secret past history with Cadmus, or more rather, her literal future with the entity.

    Having escaped Africa with the help of Stormwatch Central, Beast Boy and his friends seek out the Chief in India, exiting the frying pan into the fire. Decades ago, Jur-Il was shrunk by Brainiac in the final moments of Krypton-3, and spent the intervening years becoming the Crime-Lord of Kandor III. During the Convergence, it was this evil mirror universe bottle city that was presented to the Man of Steel, and which Strikeforce Superman rescued at the Fortress of Solitide from Rogol Zaar. Escaping Kandor³ and arranging to be restored to normal height by Thomas Dinawa, Jur-Il then took advantage of the concept of “Earth-0” to mascaraed as the Joe-El of that world to torture Superman and his family. Now he’s directing the Crime Syndicate in an invasion, and only the combined efforts of the “Beast Buddies,” the Doom Patrols, the Insiders, the New Brotherhood of Evil, and the army of Baron von Chaos to save our Earth!

    Apokolips is abandoned by its rulers! The cultist Aagog has been dispatch, his odyssey to restore the Yuga Khan and claim the Torment Sanction ending in ruin. Zonuz, the last Old God, remained imprisoned by the wizard Shazam. The Overslaver was cowed, and Captain Vyle himself lay broken at Bear’s feet in the Slave Pits. A hard fought route to the Mass-Director Unit revealed at its end a cold object, covered in soot, sitting in disuse. Then– there was new light! Who is more fit to rule in Darkseid’s absence than Lord Kalibak, long the Scourge of Apokolips? Chronically disregarded, the forgotten son’s secret pact with his uncle Izaya had finally broken the interminable cycle of favored child Orion versus their manipulative, absent parent. Without even the memory of his long murdered mother Suli, neglected in his father’s pursuit of the throne, discounted as a viable heir by Darkseid’s Elite, Kalibak didn’t need to foster his own brilliance when he could be lifted up by the Highfather’s. How many times must Kalibak wrestle with the now deceased Man of Steel, after repeatedly thwarting the Black Racer himself, before his proper respect could be claimed? Kalibak’s simple, predictable cruelty made him a far more desirable overseer of Apokolips to its populace than haughty Himon or the rest of his own family, and Bear’s small rebellion finds little purchase on a world that longs for barbarism, leaving him a prime specimen for Kalibak’s Torment Chambers…

  14. THE CLUB #8

    variant cover by NEAL ADAMS
    The Atomic Age has dawned, and with it rapidly advancing technology and extraordinarily powerful new strains of humanity that threaten the suddenly precarious existence of Earth civilization. Hank Heywood is one of the superhumans, but relishes the opportunity to brutally police his own, after they rejected his extreme ideology and uncouth manner. The rest of “The Club” are mostly aging dilettantes whose turn as minor “mystery men” came too late in life to be enjoyed for long, and were themselves eclipsed by the likes of the seething former “Commander Steel.” They all fear being displaced, whereas for Thomas “King” Faraday, the motivation was “noblesse oblige”– the aristocrat’s sense of duty to their society. King doesn’t feel the same sense of inferiority as his fellows, and recognizes the need to harness these emerging resources against sometimes ancient threats. Still, Faraday has been active since the war, and even accounting for premature graying, years chain smoking on the danger trail have taken their toll. Contemporaries like Matty Raven and Cliff Hoyt had already been walked off the world stage, and his associate Elijah Snow has kept him apprised of developments like the international Daemonite insertions via his annual Planetary Guide. Faraday may not have a role to play in this new era, or at least not one to be desired, for much longer. Shaken by his meeting in Japan with Bert Brandon, agent of Interplanetary Insurance Incorporated, King catches a ride home with Blackhawk while planning to investigate an intriguing phenomena. Not quite a “super-hero,” so as not to alarm H.U.A.C., but this “Captain Comet” has certainly piqued Faraday’s interest…

However, Red Hood’s debt to Talia al Ghul is called in by Honor Guest and the White Ghost, who demand the services of the Dark Outlaws in Khadym.

Five years from now, Terry McGinnis will be killed by an abominable hybrid of a Batman and the Joker created by Brother Eye, while Tim Drake will be exiled another quarter-century in time beyond to serve as a new Batman. At least, that’s how Monarch’s ally the Key tells it, from one of the futures Red Hood is expected to end before it begins. Plus, fearing Promise and her new allies, the Calculator has dispatched the child assassin Cricket…

    All is not going as Brion Markov and Dr. Jace had planned, when Leviathan shifts support to villainous factions once believed to be Markovian dupes, which were essential to the King’s alliance with the Night Tribes. Despite being short the ailing Jack O’ Lantern, Beaumont, Looking Glass, and The Knight, the Markovian Insiders are apprehended by the standing Knights Inc. members Canterbury Cricket, Crusader, Godiva, Golden Pharaoh, The Hood, Lionheart, and Mrs. Hyde.

    Predictably, ex-Checkmate Rook Cinnamon’s deal with Neron has come back to see to her end, caught conspiring with Baron Winters’ betrayer, Red Devil. Less foreseeable was that her dealings with Infernal and Brimstone would lead to Deathstorm.

    Intolerant of Zandia’s neutrality, and the free movement of enemy elements within, Baron Blitzkrieg demands fealty to the Final Reich from Lady Zand. Instead, she manipulates Azrael into a three-way conflict between the Baron and the forces of S.H.A.D.E.

    In Japan, Baron Katana is murdered by Lord Death Man, on orders from the League of Assassins.

    Thanks to the sacrifice of Tommy Monaghan, Jackson Hyde reaches safety in Sub Diego, fully aware that the alliance between Onyx and the Shadow Cabinet allows only the briefest of respites.

    Colonel Steve Trevor and Baronesses Paula Von Gunther have their final battle, as no one gets out alive!
