A prehistoric pair empowered by the “genetic tinkering” of aliens must later defend their world when the “Sky Gods” return. Less-than-stellar creative efforts from Don Glut and Jesse Santos mar what could have been an interesting debut issue.
Morgan and Tara learn the secret history of Skartaris – but a forgotten subway might make it all for not! Another greater-than-the-sum-of-its-parts outing from Warlord creator Mike Grell.
Someone is trying to sabotage an air-transport company – until the Scorpion and Miss Bishop put a stop to the shenanigans. An early gem from auteur comic-book creator Howard Chaykin.
The servants of an unknown evil gather powerful magical relics – and the Legion seems unable to stop them! The classic Legion creative team of Paul Levitz, Keith Giffen and Larry Mahlstedt are in fine form as they launch into “The Great Darkness Saga.”
A new college class and traveling lecture about comic-book history necessitate a short break. But Sequential Reaction will return Sept. 12, 2016, with new reviews of old four-color favorites every weekday.
Legionnaires marooned on an icy asteroid wonder if rescue will come before supplies – and hope – run out! Writer Paul Levitz starts to mine the rich characterization that would be a hallmark of his and Keith Giffen’s Legion run.
Trying to catch their breath in the Everglades, the Micronauts instead encounter the smoldering touch of the Man-Thing! Writer Bill Mantlo ups his game a bit this issue, but the art – from Michael Golden and Josef Rubinstein – isn’t as strong as previous outings.
When Yang’s cousin Sun returns to find drug dealers squatting at the family homestead, much kung-fu action ensues. Joe Gill script is better than some of his Charlton output, while Sanho Kim’s art is oddly appealing.
Morgan’s legion lays siege to the city of Thera in an effort to earn freedom – and rescue Tara from Deimos. The story is a bit rushed and the art a bit scratchy, but, overall, creator Mike Grell delivers another Warlord winner.
Feed up, Machine Man takes the fight straight to Baintronics Inc. – and his old nemesis, Sunset “Madame Menace” Bain! Barry Windsor-Smith takes over full art chores (and co-plotting) for a strong conclusion to this grade-A miniseries.
