Know, oh princes, that between the years when the immortal Vandal Savage led nascent humanity in his campaign against the Neanderthal, and the years of the rise of the daughters of Themyscira, there was an Age undreamt of... an Age of myth and legend, when sword and sorcery ruled and the Lords of Order and Chaos competed for the souls of men in their burgeoning kingdoms. Hither came Valcan of Pytharia, a warrior touched by both good and evil, cursed at birth with a demonic right hand yet taught by holy priests never to yield to its corruptive influence. After many adventures, he became known throughout the land... as Claw the Unconquered!
Yet it is said that Claw nearly met death in the form of vile Prince Gragothor Adg, a royal sadist with preternatural speed (see THE FLASH #7). It was only through the intervention of his demon hand that Claw survived. But when that hand took Gragothor’s life with a magic spell, it thereafter seemed... emboldened. Troubled by his hand’s strengthening influence over his mind, Claw resolved to exorcise himself of the cursed appendage. As it could not be removed by conventional means (if cut off, it merely grew back), only a wizard could hope to cure him - and, in his travels, the most powerful wizard affiliated with Order that he’d heard tale of was Arion, Mage Lord of Atlantis!
Claw’s quest to find the fabled sorcerer has begun... but it will be fraught with far more peril than he can imagine! For the slaying of his favored son, King Vandar Adg (Vandal Savage) seeks revenge! In addition to declaring Claw a fugitive, he’s sent his personal assassins to claim his head!
Moreover, a demon from the underworld has arrived in Pytharia... his name is Etrigan, and he knows to whom the cursed hand really belongs!
All this plus shadowy thieves, mysterious elves, and an enchanted sword!

Clark Kent has grown quite fond of his time spent with Barry Allen. Barry has been a big help to him as they tried to unravel the mystery behind Dr. Hamilton's surprise return from the Phantom Zone. Though Hamilton's condition has stabilized, he's still communicating through an unrecognizable language.
In Atlantis, Arthur grows weary of the day-to-day grind of running the Kingdom. Though he defeated Orm and took his rightful place as King of Atlantis, he still worries he may be unworthy. Mera suggests they travel to his fathers home for a visit, where Atlanna now lives with Arthur's father, Thomas.
In Gotham, Bruce Wayne has been running Hamilton's writings through the batcomputer, trying to decypher the language. He runs it through LexOS, the pirated operating system he stole from Luthor a year ago, and finally gets a hit: the language is Kryptonian! And the message reads: "The ship has the answers you seek..."

Someone to Watch Over Me
Connor has been in San Francisco for weeks now and his problems seem so far away. He has a job working in a floral shop and the owner has been very kind to him. She even lets him rent a room above the shop. But when you've been a killer for most of your life, problems can find you when you least expect them. The three men came into the store and it didn't take long for Connor to understand what was about to happen. One puts a gun to Avila's head and demands her phone, rings and much more. The other two snatch money from the register and approach Connor, the grim looks on their face making clear their intent. Then with blinding swiftness, he moves, the two disarmed and unconscious before they even hit the floor. He turns to the third man, who holds Avila close with his gun towards her and tells Connor to step back or she dies. Avila looks in stunned silence as Connor is quickly on the third man, snapping his wrist and ready to deliver the killing blow before he regains himself and simply renders him a crumpled mess on the floor. Afraid to look at her, Connor is about to leave when she grabs his arm and asks him to stay with her and have tea. Outside, a lone figure watches them both. He thinks to himself, "The boy is good but he's not good enough!"
Elsewhere hidden in the mountains of Tibet away from prying eyes, they gather once again as they've done for thousands of years. Richard Dragon, leader of The Guild has chosen a new master assassin. His name is Billy Badass and his first assignment is to bring home Connor Hawke dead or alive and to kill anyone who gets in his way! Next Issue: Three men walk into a bar.

The Flash’s “conversation” with Vandal Savage nears its conclusion - and Barry doesn’t need detective skills to know that Savage truly believes he is humanity’s savior. For nearly half a million years, Savage orchestrated global events to ensure mankind’s dominance. This included the proliferation of the metagene through his offspring. But of all the potential abilities a meta could manifest, access to the Speed Force was always the greatest prize...
The late 1970s. Savage believed the Speed Force could accelerate human evolution and make the species more powerful - but needed to test his theory. He did so... on gorillas. The Speed Force evolved the beasts’ minds quickly. Too quickly. Once they began developing psychic powers, “Gorilla City” became the very threat to human dominance that Savage always fought against.
This, he tells Barry, is why they must work together to fix his mistake. A common enemy, born from the Speed Force and Savage’s own hubris. Will Barry join him so that Grodd may be defeated?!
And how does Barry’s family fit into all this?
The early 1990s. Nora Allen, née Thompson. Genius biologist. Traitor to humanity? Alongside certain anti-Illuminati elements within the CIA, Nora worked on “Operation: Humble Pie” - a project to “cure” the metagene, to strip human DNA of the gift inherited from Vandal Savage! And why? Because her father was the speedster who helped accelerate the gorilla’s evolution! She feared the same power was in her. Was in her son...
Vandal explains why Nora had to be stopped, why he had to send Cheetah to kill her. But Barry doesn’t have to make the same mistake. Will the Flash work with Savage as his grandfather did? And if not, how will he escape when the walls of Savage’s mansion are lined with speedster-slowing Suspendium?

Attention, an all points bulletin has been issued for Non of Krypton. Suspect is humanoid bipedal, 6’6” tall, 280 lbs., brown eyes, brown hair and beard. Last seen on Circadia. To be considered extremely dangerous. Wanted for 3,216 counts of Failure to Pay Space Court-Ordered Child Support.
Most regarded him as nothing more than General Zod’s muscle - and perhaps he did lack his General’s devious intellect. But Non was a Kryptonian who understood his strengths: he could fight, and he could f@$&! And once he found himself on his own, he quickly put both of those skills to use. Finding many willing lovers among the insectoid Circadians of Circadia, Non was able to father multiple clutches of half-Kryptonian eggs... hatching into an army of half-bug super-boys! And let’s just say that Non isn’t the most positive role-model... with many of his children scattering to the stars, forming gangs, and engaging in all manner of crimes, can Hal Jordan of the Green Lantern Corps do some community intervention and reach out to these super-powered at-risk youths?
Meanwhile, all galactic prognosticators believe a massive Starro invasion is imminent. In the spirit of cooperation, many unlikely worlds are working with the Green Lantern Corps to facilitate system-wide evacuations and organize defenses. The most unlikely of those new allies? Warworld! Will Mongul and his new lover, the Star Sapphire Carol Ferris (see NEXT DAWN VALENTINE’S DAY SPECIAL #1), help these desperate refugees? Or is a distrustful John Stewart right about their ulterior motives? And how long can John prevent Hal from learning that his ex is now hooked up with a space tyrant?
Plus, Guy continues to thrive within the Red Lantern Corps - and takes out his rage on the cosmic equivalent of Jeffrey Epstein! This guy definitely didn’t kill himself...
