100 Issues Ago March 2011

I came across this “100 Issues Ago” panel in an old JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA and thought I’d tidy it up and re-purpose it. If one month = one issue, what was I reading 100 Issues Ago?

The Matthew Sturges written JSA ALL-STARS was a good fun read for the year and a half that it lasted; the younger members of the JSA split to form their own team with Power Girl as the lead and while it never seemed to set the world on fire, it was a good, solid, fun read.

It’s cancellation in the run-up to FLASHPOINT and the New 52 (and we’re getting ever closer to that with these posts, aren’t we?) meant we never got to know the origin of Anna Fortune, an original character who joined the team early on and was a neat addition to the ranks – a strange pseudo-steampunk magic user who relied on spells hidden in her gloves.

Fun while it lasted, though.

  1. Really not a lot that’s new for me. Still Darkwing Duck. Still Secret Six, Batgirl, REBELS, and Batman Beyond from DC. Still Avengers Academy and Heroes for Hire from Marvel.

    The two new additions would be a Power Man and Iron Fist mini-series that started in February. It’s a different character as Power Man, since Luke Cage is just going as Luke Cage at that point. I wound up being more interested in some of the villains Fred van Lente created for it than the overall plot.

    The other addition is Abnett and Lanning’s Annihilators mini-series, spinning out of their Thanos Imperative mini-series, where Cosmo assembles a bunch of the cosmic level heavy hitter types to protect the universe the way Star-Lord wanted the Guardians of the Galaxy to do (but feels they lacked the power to accomplish). It would have been better with an artist better suited to cosmic slugfests than Tan Eng Huat, but there was a second story in each issue about Rocket Raccoon and Groot that I really loved.

    That or Batgirl would have been my favorite book at the time.
