Or – “Nobody Promised Mitchell Shelley Forever…” The return of Resurrection Man as part of the New 52 last fall was one of the pleasant surprises of the relaunch for me. As a fan of the character’s original 1990’s incarnation, it always seemed a shame that only the Body Doubles survived the book’s cancellation, and that only through the power of sexy-sexy times. Now, Mitch Shelley again finds himself at the end of the road, but how does one kill what cannot die? Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
Or – “Mitchell Shelley… A Man Barely Alive.” We often hear about concepts that are “ahead of their time,” like the original run of The Prisoner, or Hendrix guitar riffs at Monterrey Pop. The DC New 52 relaunch has apparently made a cottage industry out of these type of characters (Hawk & Dove, O.M.A.C., Static Shock and others) but this time, they’ve really nailed the one character in their history that MOST DESERVED a second shot. The original run of Resurrection Man feels like a comic from 2004 rather than 1990-whichever, and I for one am glad to see it
