100 Issues Ago August 2013

Power Girl and Huntress are still trying to find their way back to Earth-2 and at the moment also trying to escape the clutches of Desaad who, it turns out, was stranded on Earth-0 back when Darkseid launched his invasion that the Justice League prevented. This issue seems like filler – it’s mostly Power Girl hunting for Huntress while she in turn escapes Desaad, only to finish with the revelation that the Apokoliptian god has somehow messed up Power Girl’s abilities which go haywire from next issue onwards.

So if it’s filler, why am I highlighting it? Because the rest of the DC titles appear to be gearing up to the FOREVER EVIL event, with Trinity War running through several titles, or other titles like STORMWATCH or ALL-STAR WESTERN were off doing their own thing. It really did seem like a mess of all sorts of things going on this month, and this was the issue that leapt out at me.

Once again it was a very DC heavy month with 17 issues and only FATALE from Image breaking the pattern.
