As it’s my birthday, you get the traditional annual featuring a massive story of the All Star Squadron attempted to halt Galactus!
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?
Another month, like the last one, where I struggled to find an issue worth talking about.
The EARTH-2 series was pretty much a highlight this month, but even that was something of a stretch. With the introduction of a new Flash in the previous issue, this one brought in the new Alan Scott as Green Lantern, slowly building up to a world of heroes without Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman. Robinson’s work wasn’t bad, and Nicola Scott’s art is always good, but (from memory) it was just a bit slow.
Elsewhere this month, things were something of a mess. JUSTICE LEAGUE INTERNATIONAL and STORMWATCH seemed all over the place, as were BLUE BEETLE and CAPTAIN ATOM. Even things like ALL-STAR WESTERN, DEMON KNIGHTS and FRANKENSTEIN were running on the spot a bit. As I said, hard to find something that, from my recollection, really stood out this month.
Outside of DC, it was still just THE BOYS, FATALE and FURY: MAX.
Three Lanterns in their prime? Yeah, whoever’s taken out the Society is going to have a fight on their hands.
Having taken the Flashes from the cover of THE FLASH #123, I had to slip in a multiverse reference, didn’t I?
