Previews: Death of the New Gods #4 & Legion of Super-Heroes #37
Courtesy of Newsarama, here are glimpses at a couple of issues from DC Comics that have gotten me a bit excited lately.
Death of the New Gods #4 (far left) by Jim Starlin features what is purported to be the "end" of the Jack Kirby Fourth World saga - begun way back during the close of the silver age of comics. Many beloved characters have taken their final bow in the pages of this mini-series, but the mystery of who (or what) done it, is sure worth checking out.
Legion of Super-Heroes #37, illustrated by Francis Manapul & John Livesay, and written by returning (and controversial) former Legion scribe Jim Shooter looks to be a return to form for the 31st century team of heroes after the departure of Mark Waid & Barry Kitson. As a huge fan of the 1960's & 1970's Legion stories, I definitely will be lining up for Shooter's rebound to this title.
