Doomsday Clock #12> This is it! The final showdown between Dr. Manhattan and Superman shakes up the DC Universe to its very core! But can even the Man of Steel walk out from the shadow of Manhattan? (S) Geoff Johns (A/CA) Gary Frank
Smurfs Take> Something that I thought would never happen! First would be seeing the end of this series and Superman facing off with Dr. Manhattan. This still seems like a one sided fight in my mind since Manhattan is a god but this series has been terrific and worth the long wait but now the end is nigh.
Year of the Villain Hell Arisen #1> DC’s “Year of the Villain” begins its sinister conclusion! Lex Luthor has brought Perpetua back from her cosmic grave and restored her power! Now the Multiverse lives in fear that she might wipe out all existence. The only thing that could stop her are the forces of the Dark Multiverse- which means it’s Luthor’s mission to defeat the Batman Who Laughs! But if Batman and Superman couldn’t stop him, what chance does Luthor stand? Spinning out of the end of the “Justice/ Doom War” in Justice League #38 and the conclusion of the epic “Infected” arc from Batman/Superman #5, DC’s two top villains face off in a battle royal-and the fate of all reality hangs in the balance! (S) James TynionIV (A/CA) Steve Epting
Smurfs Take> I don’t know if DC planned all of this or just sort of fell into it starting with the Batman that Laughed but this has been one of the best crossover events I have seen. I have been hooked from the start and to be honest don’t want to see it end.
Middlewest #13> Abel knows hard work and cruel adults, and on the Raider Farms he’ll find no shortage of either. Elsewhere, Maggie and Jeb struggle to rally a crew to rescue the kids, and they need to be quick—the weather is starting to turn. (S) Skottie Young (A) Jorge Corona
Batman #85> The stunning conclusion to “City of Bane” is here! How will Flashpoint Batman be vanquished from our dimension? What will become of Gotham Girl now that she’s betrayed all she knows? How will the Bat team cope without Alfred? Will Catwoman stick around? Who will rebuild Gotham City? Is Batman ever going to be Batman again? The event of the summer now closes out the year, setting the stage for a whole new path for the Dark Knight Detective. You don’t dare miss the extra-sized concluding chapter to Tom King’s epic run on Batman-and it all leads to the new Batman and Catwoman series! (S) Tom King (A) Mikel Janin (CA) Tony S. Daniel
Smurfs Take> Great story! This has been an amazing ride from start to finish! Had no idea what was going to happen, where it was going to go and have no doubt it’s going to finish strong.
King Thor #4> THE FINAL CHAPTER OF THE YEARS-SPANNING, AWARD-WINNING SAGA!
The sun has gone black. Midgard isn’t far behind. The entire Multiverse is dying – and with it, the last of the gods. A millennium ago, the God of Thunder heard a whisper: “Gorr was right.” Now Gorr the God of God-Butchers ascends to his final murder: the All-Father of all existence. Plus, a who’s who of Jason’s past THOR collaborators and a few surprise guests help close out the story in thunderous style! (S) Jason Aaron (A) More (A/CA) Esad Ribic
Smurfs Take> Jason Aaron is a master! The story he has told is an epic fantasy and if this is really the end I don’t know where we go from here.
Guardians of the Galaxy #12> THE “FAITHLESS” STORYLINE ENDS HERE!
Thanos Wins…Cosmic Ghost Rider…The Death of the Inhumans…Silver Surfer: Black…Guardians of the Galaxy…It’s all been leading to this. (S) Donny Cates (A) Cory Smith, More, Dylan Burnett, Ariel Olivetti (A/CA) Geoff Shaw
Smurfs Take> It all has been building to this and I can’t wait for all of the cosmic stories to come together.
