Well well well. I'll be if this
isn't some interesting news. The return of dead titles? That's a clever bit of trickery. A great idea, really. If they have
to skip a month (and I'm going to cut Ivan Reis some slack because it looks like he's actually going to finish this
big event without any help) this is certainly a clever way to do it. Let us exam each resurrected title in turn:The Power of Shazam! #48
: Black Lantern Osiris? Yes please. But could that really be all? Do the members of the Marvel Family have any other serious dead adversaries? I can't think of any... But there's always Billy and Mary's parents...The Question #37
: Ah, I've been waiting for this since Blackest Night
was announced. No one else could write it but Greg Rucka. I'm wondering how exactly they'll do the Black Lantern Question. Most of the Black Lanters are distinguished by their gruesome faces. That won't work with the Question...Suicide Squad #67
: Booyah! More John Ostrander Suicide Squad
is always good. And there are a lot
of dead guys on that team...Phantom Stranger #42
: I loves me the Phantom Stranger. And Peter Tomasi does good work. This is a definite buy.Catwoman #83
: Black Lantern Black Mask, eh? I suppose it was inevitable... But I didn't see it coming. Sometimes my prognostication skills are better than other times.The Atom and Hawkman #46
: Oh, this oughta be fun
. The Atom stuck up against three
Black Lanterns? One his loopy, loony, murdering ex-wife?
Craazy.Weird Western Tales #71
: Black Lantern Jonah Hex will be worth the price of admission alone.Starman #81
is the biggest surprise, I;d say. I never
thought James Robinson would ever
return to Jack Knight. But there you have it. I hope it lives up to the standards of the original series.
Which one are you
looking forward to the most?
