Road to Rebirth 04: Injustice League

Going monthly now for the foreseeable future, Road to Rebirth has emerged from the darkness of Forever Evil to see a new status quo for the Justice League, or shall we call them the INjustice League?! Lex Luthor is looking for membership in the League, and Batman may have no choice but to let him in. Al and Jon have the details in this first of two episodes covering Justice League Volume 6: Injustice League.

Justice League Volume 6: Injustice League collects Justice League 30-39. This episode covers 30-34.

Rebirth: Superman 4 and Action Comics 961

It's a double-Rebirth episode as I talk about both the Superman books from last week and this week. The feature issues are Superman 4 and Action Comics 961, but Superwoman 1 cannot be left unmentioned, as it was definitely a standout. And I round out the episode with brief looks at New Super-Man 2, Justice League 2, and Red Hood & the Outlaws 1.

Rebirth: Action Comics 960

Nearly a week late due to illness and other things, but here are my Rebirth thoughts on Action Comics 960. Only one Superbook this week: Red Hood & the Outlaws: Rebirth did hit but sadly no Bizarro. Still a great read, though, so check it out! But only after you download and listen!! :)

Road to Rebirth 03: Forever Evil Forever

This is it, folks! This is the wrapup of one of the greatest stories in the New 52 history! And Al and Jon are here to give you all of their thoughts on it.

First, though, they cover some of the tie-ins of the series, specifically those that involve Supers, namely Justice League Volume 5: Forever Heroes, Justice League of America Volume 2: Survivors of Evil, and Suicide Squad Volume 5: Walled In. After varying levels of coverage with those side stories, it's time for the finale with Forever Evil 7.

In two weeks, we start to look at how a new Luthor gets involved with the Justice League, or should we now call it the Injustice League??!!
