It was new comic book day yesterday. What’d you all get? What’d you enjoy? What’d you dislike? Sound off in the comments below. While you think about that, here’s some comic news and reviews from around the web.
Sebastian Stagg and his council of cash have taken the Terrifics for a ride…but don’t count Michael Holt out just yet – that big brain of his still has a trick or two up its sleeve (it’s…brain sleeve? I guess? You get it.) But in the battle against mountains of cash, do a few good ideas stand a chance? Find out in the dramatic conclusion to the fight for Gateway City and for the Stagg fortune…not everyone will be walking away from this one in one piece (especially not whoever had to fight Lobo!)
Simon Stagg is dead, but don’t worry-prodigal son Sebastian has arrived to take his place as his rich, evil father’s successor. Sweet daughter Sapphire and her friends the Terrifics are not about to let that happen. It’s a winner-take-all blood feud for all the technology, money, nd power in Gateway City, and things are about to turn even deadlier!
Simon Stagg is dead! After the cataclysmic events of last issue, the line of succession in the house of Stagg has fallen to the Terrifics’ ally Sapphire…or has it? Who is Sebastian Stagg, and what on Earth is he doing with the Parasite at his side? It’s science versus money as the Terrifics battle for the fate of the future!
