Comics of the Week (7/10/08) part 1

Legion of Super-Heroes in the 31st Century #16 - the cover is in celebration of the classic LSH debut from Adventure Comics #247 and the story inside is pretty much summed up by the issue's title: "the Untold Legend of Arm-Fall-Off Boy". A cute, one issue story that tells the tale of a different person trying to fit in.

The War That Time Forgot #3 (of 12) - actually came out last week but my shop didn't get them right away. The art inside seems to be sliding a bit on this mini-series and the story is running pretty slowly. I hope they aren't padding it just to make it fill the 12 issues. I was hoping for more but I am slowly getting disappointed. May drop it after another issue.

Justice Society of America #17 - "One World, Under Gog" continues with this second part subtitled "Wish Fulfillment". After the way the last issue ended, more members of the JSA find themselves on the receiving end of Gog's wonderous gifts. Is it all a ploy, or can this benevolent giant being be on the level? We'll see soon. Enjoying this arc a lot. Also, can't wait for the Justice Society of America Annual to come out in a few weeks. Two words: Earth-Two (okay, that one word hyphenated but still...)

I picked up the JSA book and I gotta admit, I am intrigued. Don't know if I like this Kingdom Come business in the "real" Dc Universe or not, but it is what it is.
Nice to see Damage "undamaged".

I agree - I hated having Damage damaged. And the whole "which worlds are which" is always interesting, so I'm cool with the developments coming out of this book.
