Saturday May 5th was
Free Comic Book Day, and DC participated with a special edition of
The New 52 featuring an all-new tale written by Geoff Johns that
ties-in directly to the events taking place in Justice League. The
mysterious Pandora serves as the point of view character at the same
time that her origin is revealed along with that of other more
familiar faces -no pun intended.
The Shazam! Myths are updated even further than what has been seen
so far in the JL backup feature; it is an interesting change that
opens the door to lots of possibilities and speculation. The issue
also touches on Earth-2, clearly setting the stage for an eventual
clash of dimensions; but that's something that can wait a while, as
there is much world building to do. Finally, the book teases the big
event of 2013: The Trinity War, and the four page foldout depicting
the conflict provides plenty of reasons to be more than excited
about it. All that without paying a penny for it. Amazing!
