That loud booming sound you just heard wasn’t Barry Allen breaking the sound barrier. It was the collective “thump!” of all of our jaws hitting the floor at once as we got to the end of THE FLASH #19.
Okay, you poozers, put the kids to bed and find your stomach. This week’s edition of This Just Happened is not for the squeamish! If you faint at the sight of blood, stop reading now and go watch the new DC Super Hero Girls movie trailer or something.
The truth hurts. That’s what they say, at least, and after reading this week’s startling SUPERMAN #18, we definitely believe it.
Written by Peter J. Tomasi and Patrick Gleason and drawn by Gleason with assists from Mick Gray and John Kalisz, Superman #18 officially kicks off “Superman: Reborn,” the four-part crossover storyline that promises to finally reveal the secrets surrounding Rebirth’s Man of Steel.
Amanda Waller’s been shot!
Hold on just a moment because I’m not quite sure the significance of what I said there has struck you. Or maybe you’re all just in shock. But either way, go on ahead and read it again…
AMANDA WALLER HAS BEEN GUNNED DOWN!
If you’re going to declare war on Amanda Waller, you’d better make sure you win. That’s what Maxwell Lord discovered in the final issue of Rebirth’s first big event, JUSTICE LEAGUE VS. SUICIDE SQUAD #6.
Seattle’s a great city, but in the pages of this week’s GREEN ARROW #15, it’s also a city under siege, and the one man who can help has seen his life destroyed and his reputation tarnished. Much of it has been at the hands of Queen Industries CFO Cyrus Broderick, who orchestrated Oliver’s professional and personal downfall. Now the shaken hero finds himself questioning his entire mission in life at the start of Benjamin Percy and Juan Ferreyra’s action packed issue.
If you care even one iota about the DC Universe, then this week’s JUSTICE LEAGUE VS. SUICIDE SQUAD #4 is an absolute must-read. It’s exciting, fun, surprising and packed with twists and details that will be felt throughout the pages of Rebirth for months to come. And it’s not even the final issue of the miniseries. There are still two more issues to go!
