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!
We knew it was coming. It’s right there in the title. But we sure didn’t expect the battle royale that took place through much of this week’s JUSTICE LEAGUE VS. SUICIDE SQUAD #2 to end the way it did!
Look, who doesn’t like a good rematch? And we got an absolutely great one this week in BATMAN #13, the final issue in Tom King and Mikel Janín’s taut “I Am Suicide” storyline. For the past two months, Batman and his own personal Suicide Squad have infiltrated Santa Prisca, the island prison that’s home to Bane—the brilliant, powerful bruiser who is one of the only villains to ever defeat Batman in hand to hand combat.
It’s been Diana who’s been in wonder through much of “Year One,” the Greg Rucka/Nicola Scott storyline that continues in this week’s WONDER WOMAN #12. Ever since she arrived in the world of man, the Amazonian princess has been astounded by what our world has to offer…as well as shocked by the violence mankind is capable of. After working with Steve Trevor and Etta Candy to subdue a terrorist attack, Diana tests her newly acquired abilities as Steve’s superiors look for answers about the incident.
Amanda Waller has an explosive way of keeping her team of super-villains in line. Or did she forget to mention that to Batman? Either way, he learned the danger of forming his own Suicide Squad in this week’s BATMAN #11!
Yes, I know what you’re thinking. Didn’t we just write about Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps here in This Just Happened?
Why, yes, we did. But we’re writing about it again because the series is just that awesome, and this week’s new issue was nothing short of breathtaking.
Kids. They always manage to surprise you. Often, it’s with their rambunctious curiosity or their innocent worldview. Occasionally, it’s with their impressive levels of understanding. And sometimes, it’s by gut punching another child super hero and starting a pint-sized, power-packed baby brawl!
