There’s an inter-galactic conspiracy afoot, as well as a traitor in the GL Corps’ ranks, so strap in for more mind-bending adventures in this masterpiece in the making.

  1. Happy note: Detective Pickachu looks awesome.

    Sad note: Stan lee… I think we knew it was coming but oddly still thought he’d always be around. I’m forever grateful for the work and worlds he helped build. They gave and continue to give me joy. That’s just something you cannot measure. Thanks Mr. Stan Lee, Thank you.
