The dimension-shattering Archive of Worlds saga ends here-and reverberations from this titanic tale last long after the dust settles! As the Dark Knight and the Man of Steel work to halt the villainous Auteur.io’s plan here on Earth-0, the Batman and Superman of their respective archive worlds must team up with Alanna of Rann and El Diablo himself to save what’s left of their homes. Etrigan and his demon hordes rain Armageddon down on their pocket universes-and the fate of the World of Tomorrow and the World of the Knight hang in the balance!

The Dark Knight and the Man of Steel are on a mission to stop the godlike Auteur.io from destroying the pocket worlds he’s created…but where on Earth did Auteur.io even come from?

It’s a race against time as the parallel lives of entire worlds hang in the balance!

Get a Look at Batman/Superman #17 from Gene Luen Yang and Ivan Reis

Best-selling writer Gene Luen Yang and award-winning artist Ivan Reis started their run on Batman/Superman with a bang in issue #16, weaving together not one, but TWO tales into one titanic issue. Yang and Reis wield the medium itself to tell the story of two universes, reminiscent of much-beloved DC film serials, colliding into one: Superman’s World of Tomorrow, and Batman’s World of the Night! The issue ended with the appearance of a brand-new villain, and a surprise that left readers’ jaws on the cutting room floor!

In this preview of Batman/Superman #17 (on sale Tuesday, April 27) Yang and Reis take the “World’s Finest” heroes down the rabbit hole to find an alternate reality where they’ve never met, a reality created by a mysterious new enemy!

Collects Captain Marvel (2002) #7-12.

Karl Coven is a serial killer sentenced to die for his crimes, and Rick Jones the star witness in the prosecution’s case. Claiming to be an alien not subject to our laws, Coven’s argument is dismissed, but he gets the last laugh by promptly returning back to life immediately after his death sentence is executed. When a loophole in the legal system requires Coven to be set free, he comes to the attention of Captain Marvel, who’s intrigued by the mysterious figure not only because of his apparent resurrection and immunity to Genis’ Cosmic Awareness, but by the peculiarities of the judicial system that let the killer go free. Rather than annihilate Coven, he suggests that they become the law: Coven to be prosecution, and Marvel to be judge.

Art by Jean-Claude Forest
Purchase

Les aventures de l’affriolante Barbarella, terrienne en exil qui explore les planètes les plus éloignées de la galaxie. 1 VOLUME PARU – HISTOIRES INDÉPENDANTES. L’oeuvre mythique des années 60 enfin rééditée ! Créée en 1964, Barbarella bouleverse le monde de la bande dessinée et scandalise dès sa parution. Fer de lance de la bande dessinée adulte et de genre, l’oeuvre est censurée. À l’heure de la libération sexuelle, les traits sensuels et l’érotisme que dégage l’héroïne éponyme ne laissent en effet aucun lecteur indifférent. L’image de la femme dans la bande dessinée, jusqu’alors le plus souvent cantonnée à des rôles de figurante asexuée, explose donc avec Barbarella, qui ouvre la voie vers une bande dessinée adulte et libérée. Rapidement devenu une référence, l’oeuvre était introuvable depuis de nombreuses années.

For Genis has inherited his father’s greatest gift, the ability of Cosmic Awareness, a oneness with the universe that allows him to know what will happen, what may happen, and what should happen to every living thing in the universe.

Review: Generations Shattered #1

Generations Shattered #1

Generations Shattered #1 is an interesting comic. As a standalone miniseries, the story would be quite compelling and engaging. But, with its release of “Future State”, the comic isn’t released in a vacuum. Spinning out of Dark Nights: Death Metal, the story involves a villain using the messed up time and history to shape their own. A group of heroes throughout time are gathered to save the day.

The concept of Generations Shattered #1 and where it goes would be an event miniseries I’d take a lot of interest in normally. But, it’s a bit of an oddity with the release of all of the other “Future State” comics. While they focus on possible future events, this one features a villain attempting to shape a new reality and history. Where it fits into this reshaping of the DC Universe and history is a bit of a headscratcher. While time seems to have mended as per other comics, maybe not? It’s a little unclear how this fits into what’s going on.

Written by Dan Jurgens, Andy Schmidt, and Robert Venditti, Generations Shattered #1 brings the heroes together in an oversized first issue. Dragged out feels like a better way to describe it. The issue is mostly the heroes being gathered as time is erased as it’s being rewritten. Over 45 pages are dedicated to this creating a slow build and long way to get to the point. Other comics have done the “gathering of characters” and their introduction quicker and in a much more entertaining way.

What this does though is give a massive amount of artists to stretch their legs. Each segment is handled by a different team giving the comic a jam-session sort of feel. That could be interesting as well if any of the art really popped. There’s not bad but there’s little that’s exciting either. Still, it’s fun to see the different styles and takes on the characters from so many artists.

Generations Shattered #1 is an oddity of a comic. It’s hampered by its release along “Future State” making its story a bit confusing. The concept is quite good and entertaining, especially where it leaves things. But, it takes forever to get to the interesting part. It’s a comic I both felt like a chore to read but at the same time I want to see where it goes.
