Rom continues to search out Dire Wraiths on Earth – and uncovers a plot to free his mortal enemies from Limbo! Despite a new character who is a bit hard to believe, this third issue from the team of Bill Mantlo and Sal Buscema is another solid offering.

Rom continues to find Dire Wraiths embedded throughout West Virginia – including those working on a lethal laser project! Bill Mantlo and Sal Buscema deliver a solid second issue, but one that lacks the punch of this series’ excellent debut.
A dangerous assignment from Morgan Edge sends Jimmy Olsen in search of the Mountain of Judgement as Jack Kirby’s “Fourth World” epic begins. The King moves to the Distinguished Competition, breathing life into the B-list Jimmy Olsen — and helping launch the Bronze Age!
