This fourth JSA volume collects Justice Society of America #19-22, and the Thy Kingdom Come specials Magog, Superman, and The Kingdom. Picking up where part two left off, the Justice Society begins to disintegrate as Gog vows to bring peace to Earth. Some are terrified by this course of events, while many heroes are optimistic, after being healed of their ailments by Gog. Thom Kallor (Starman) is no longer a schizophrenic, Grant Emerson's (Damage) scarred face is restored, and Sanderson Hawkin's (Sand) night terrors have ceased. Gog's helping hand comes with a moral price tag as the old JSA squares off against the new. More

When British writer Alan Moore took over Swamp Thing in 1983, the title was a formulaic monster comic on the verge of cancellation. DC, thus, gave Moore free reign to revamp the series as he pleased, even though he was largely untested by American comics companies. What Moore ended up creating was way ahead of its time, and his work on Swamp Thing has had an influential impact both on comic writers and the potential of the medium. More

You would think that being the last man on Earth would have some advantages, the obvious one being all the women you could potentially sleep with (unless you were the last man on Earth and gay, now that would suck). But the reality may be much darker than that, if Y: The Last Man is any predictor. More
