For want of a knife the kingdom was lost Forget the time jumping, continuity screwing, reality messing tale thatâ€™s occurring in some of those other books.Â If you really want your mind tweaked, readers need to check out the latest time jumping, continuity screwing, reality messing tale thatâ€™s happening in Booster Gold.Â Unlike that other book that doesnâ€™t explain anything, Booster Gold #15, kicks off a new story arc that not only doesnâ€™t explain everything, but does it in a way that makes sense – providing youâ€™ve read the previous 14 issues.
Time to wrap up all the loose ends Trips across the country to attend conventions, moving to new digs, trips to the hospital, and the rush to get caught back up with Major Spoilers pale in comparison to the traveling around the universe, trips through time and the rush to try and wrap up 52 in a neat and tidy package. This week my 52 review returns just in the nick of time.
Booster Gold Returns! As much as I have loved reading 52 and making speculations throughout, it is often good know at least one of my wild speculations have paid off. This week offers three big reveals that are really not that big of a surprise if you have been following closely. The first is a no-brainer (look at the subhead), the second is a relief, and the third has been sitting in front of your face for at least six months. If you don’t like Major Spoilers, turn back now!
Happy Holidays It’s a winter wonderland in the DCU. Carolers are caroling, snow is falling, gifts are exchanged, and it is generally a good moment for all.
The Great Stygian Passover Comes What the heck is the great Stygian Passover we’ve been hearing about for the last 30 weeks, and how could it destroy an entire sector in space? We learn the grisly details, and get a major clue into the identity of Supernova.
Heroes Will Fall Week 27 is a bad one for 52. Not in the storytelling, but rather in the tragedy of the heroes’ lives. After following the events of this week, including another of my Crack Pot Theories of the Week, you’re going to sit up and say “Whoa!”
The New Justice League A world without a Justice League? That seems to be an area of consternation in the DC Universe. Without a Justice League is the world safe? If the big three are missing and no one else is going to reform the League, shouldn’t someone step up?
The House of Mystery Mystery A locked door, a dead detective, and Dr. Fate’s helmet. The solution to this mystery can only be solved by a great detective. Batman’s out of the country, so the next best on the list is Ralph Dibny.
In which Ralph learns the truth too late For the last 13 weeks, Ralph Dibny has been slowly going crazy over the loss of his wife Sue, and the subsequent desecration of her grave. Last week he tracked down Cassie (Wonder Girl) and was invited into the Cult of Conner to assist in the resurrection of his wife. This issue kicks off with Ralph, dressed in ceremonial garb, taking part in the ceremony.
