Comics of the Week part 2 (3/19/08)

the Brave and the Bold #11 - the Megistus storyline reaches it's second to last installment, forcing Superman and his evil opposite Ultraman to team-up. However, with George Perez' art on this issue (Jerry Ordway fills in), the issue isn't as powerful as previous ones had been. George should be back for the finale though.

Tangent: Superman's Reign #1 (of 12) - this new mini series revisits the Tangent universe, a place where characters have the same names as those in the main DCU but different looks, histories, etc. An interesting concept that was done about a decade ago. Things look kind of grim there and some of their heroes are trying to get home. The Justice League is going to have to help. This first chapter is intriguing.

Death of the New Gods #7 - this second to last issue of the mini series reveals that killer of the Gods, and two more fall! Can Superman stop the killer from going after the final God? Will he, given who it is? And what does the future hold? Next issue should answer these guestions. A solid mini.
