NB of the Week


Earth 2 #17
Superman is evil and the only way to stop him may be by magic. Until he stops the crap outta Fate. General Lane decides the Red Tornado is the best hope but in order to give it the advantage, he puts the "essence" of his daughter Lois in, hoping to provoke something from him. Before that encounter happens (in the nest issue), we also see the new Batman trying to break out some evil dudes from stasis, claiming they may be the only way to save everybody.

Superman Unchained #4
Superman and Wraith fight some Russian robots that can hurt him, Lois is given a crystal of some kind and Luthor claims Jimmy Olsen is gonna be the one to kill Superman... This book has been so late, I'll probably have to reread it all once this first story is done.

Cataclysm: The Ultimates Last Stand #1
Regular Galactus had merged with Ultimate Galactus and is trying to devour the Ultimate Universe now. The Ultimates and everybody figure out he's not from there and they don't know how to stop him. That's about all the progress we get in this first issue, which is written by Mister Progress himself, Brian Michael Bendis.

Forever Evil #3
Somehow, the heroes have been gathered into Firestorm's matrix, with Batman and Catwoman being the ones to escape beforehand. With no heroes, it's time for the villains to step up as Luthor, Bizarro, Black Manta and Captain Cold (without any powers now) claim it's their turn to take out the Crime Syndicate.

Fatale #18
I won't even lie, this book is pretty weird and it's hard to follow unless you're familiar with the whole book. Demons, cults, robbery, rock N roll and lots of murder and sex. It's still amazing but golly darn it's getting difficult to explain.
