If you missed my discussion of the first Titans Rebirth collection, then you missed me confessing that I love the Teen Titans more than almost anything in the comic book sphere. Just so you know that this is where my bias is coming from.
Alright guys, after four weeks of mayhem and betrayal, “The Lazarus Contract” is coming to a close. Though we may have avoided a complete and total cosmic crisis, the course of not one, not two, but three ongoing books has just been altered, for better or for worse.
This week part three of “The Lazarus Contract” hit the pages of Deathstroke and things are finally starting to fall into place.
...Which may or may not be a good thing for just about everyone involved.
Gotham City is no stranger to...tricky relationships. Batman and Catwoman, Nightwing and Batgirl, Harley and the Joker… You get the idea. Those crime fighting (or crime causing) couples that can never seem to decide if they love or hate each other.
Forget Superman. If we ever wind up in trouble, we want Lois Lane to save us!
If you’ve read this week’s SUPERMAN #22 by Peter J. Tomasi, Patrick Gleason and Doug Mahnke, you know what we're talking about. Despite his name being on the cover, Superman doesn’t show up until the very end. Prior to that, we’re treated to eighteen pages of mystery, suspense and action starring none other than the Daily Planet’s most intrepid reporter.
Dick Grayson’s had a busy couple of years. From faking his death to becoming a super spy, it’s been anything but easy. Now, even though he’s back in his iconic blue and black, he’s hardly out of the woods.
Dick’s first order of business is pretty simple: infiltrate, track down and eliminate the Parliament of Owls. It’s a complicated first goal, to be sure, and one made all the more tricky by the fact that it’s way more than just a mission for the greater good for our favorite former Boy Wonder—it’s personal.
Really, really personal.
