AQUAMAN #30
Plot by EXCITER
Written by GEOFF JOHNS
Art by JIM LEE
“A TALE OF EARTH AND WATER” part two “WHAT THE BUZZ IS ABOUT”
Aquaman and Geo-Force have become quite a formidable team. And that makes sense, doesn’t it? They have so much in common. Both are masters of an element. Both are metahuman heads of state. Both came to power under tragic circumstances. And both share common enemies: formerly the immortal illuminatus Vandal Savage; currently the nefarious ruler of Bialya, Queen Bee! Together, and with their respective nations behind them, the two are beating at the doors of the Bialyian palace. Queen Bee can’t escape Justice any longer!
Or can she? Queen Bee doesn’t possess conventional weapons of mass destruction, but her unconventional weapons are another story…
What most believe to be Bialya’s Mount Beelari is, in actuality, a massive alien honeycomb. And true to her name, through science and pheromone manipulation, Queen Bee has found a way to control the giant bee-like insectoid aliens that inhabit it. The bugs identify her as Queen… and the Queen commands “off with their heads!”
What role will the exiled Ocean Master, a guest of Bialya, play in the conflict?
Plus: Ryus of Xebel has decreed that his daughter Mera must marry Aquaman, but she is resistant. Ryus thus appoints a smooth matchmaker to make it happen: undisputed master of romance, Crablad!

Plotter: Marvell2100
DEATH OF A BUSINESSMAN
David and Dakota investigate the death of Chinese businessman Ken Yao in the city of Jarmun. Xin Khan, a Chinese gov't agent has been assigned to the team to help investigate the murder. Agent Khan believes that Yao was murdered in a robbery attempt by local criminals who saw the wealthy foreigner as an easy target. News of his arrival and business dealings were publicly known and would have made him a mark. David has another theory: Yao was looking to make inroads into the booming tech industry in The Congo. This would make waves and create rivals, one being Lena Killian CEO of Osiris!
Agent Khan insists they start their investigation looking into the criminal element of Jarmun, beginning with the local crime lord Keely Kingo. David and Dakota reluctantly agree and they head to a local restaurant that Kingo frequents. There they find him having lunch with a few of his associates. Dakota starts to talk but Khan suddenly interjects and gets straight to the point! He asks him what he knows about Yao's death!
Kingo laughs and tells them that he had nothing to do with that. In fact, he looked forward to working to Yao bringing in new business. More jobs mean more people who are making more money. That means more people buying more of Kingos'.... products and services which means he makes more money. After all, they're all businessmen trying to earn a G. But he offer them some advice: if they want to find out who killed Yao, they should start at the local police precinct. That's where all the criminals work!

“WAYNE’S WORLD”
Batman’s war on crime is relentless. From investigating kidnappings in Crime Alley, to thwarting terrorist plots about poisoning the water supply, to battling immortal cavemen in outer space: the Dark Knight is the hero the world needs. But to be that hero in secret, he needs to play the fool in public… and that’s far harder than it sounds!
Bruce Wayne. The King of Gotham. Billionaire playboy. Limousines. Private jets. Yachts. Romps in the French Riveria, the Maldives, the Bahamas. Court-side seats at Knights games. Reserved tables at the hottest clubs. Julie. Vicki. April. Bekka. Amina. Jaina. Lorna. Chase. 32 million followers on Instagram @BruceWayne.
Maintaining the larger-than-life persona of Bruce Wayne is a full-time job in and of itself. It’s imperative that Bruce appears too busy to ever spend a night dressed in a cowl fist-fighting eccentric psychopaths and their henchmen. This is the story of how Batman pulls it off. This is how Batman wears the mask of Bruce Wayne.

THE FLASH #45
Plot by EXCITER
Written by ROBERT KIRKMAN
Art by FRANK CHO
“END OF THE RACE”
The Flash is helping Jog locate the Black Racer: the New God of Death that possessed the recently deceased body of Jog’s father, Willie Walker. After some research, they discover the Black Racer leaves a traceable and distinct energy signature as he travels through the omnipresent Speed Force on his celestial skis… a metaphorical trail of blood!
This trail unexpectedly leads to Savoth - homeworld of Flash’s alien sidekick S’kidd-Flash and the planet whose dog-like denizens have woven the Speed Force into their very culture as an essential cornerstone (see THE FLASH #33-34). A return to Savoth is arranged, but Flash, Jog, S’kidd-Flash, and Flash’s new ex-W.O.A.H. speedster protégés are not prepared for what they find…
Savoth is dead. The entire planet seemingly wiped out. And the Black Racer is there waiting for them.
“Behold the fate of undeserving mortals who dare exploit the gifts of the Speed Force.”
As Barry races to confront the genocidal specter, he quickly finds that he is outpaced and outmatched… but as an avatar, Barry is superior source material! The entity that is the Black Racer casts aside the body of Wille Walker - now reborn, rejuvenated and seemingly in his prime - and takes possession of Barry Allen, who requires no celestial skis to move at incomprehensible speeds!
“The Flash belongs to me now. Yet I feel his concern for you, and as a result, I will grant… mercy. Go now, with your lives. But know this: the Speed Force is not for the likes of you. Never use it again, for if you do… I will come for you.”
And with that, he is gone - leaving Barry’s compatriots speechless and devastated and leaving the world without a Flash…

“GREEN RUSH”
When the Justice League took the massive amount of life-force that Vandal Savage stole and returned it to the universe, it revitalized a dead planet (see THE FLASH #42)! That planet, now nicknamed Savagea, abounds with new and never-before-seen life forms. It’s also become the richest, most concentrated source of valuable minerals in the universe! That fact has started a new intergalactic “gold rush”!
On behalf of the United Planets, which now counts Earth as a member, Hal Jordan has deployed the Green Lantern Corps’ flagship, the G.L.C.S. Interceptor, to Savagea. Its mission is to find environmentally friendly ways to extract the crucial natural resources while preventing other galactic powers from strip-mining the new world and endangering all Savagea’s native life. Is the Interceptor’s new captain, Guy Gardner, up to the task? He better be, because both the Skel and the Khund have sent warships! Plus, the planet has its own surprises in store…
Earlier on Savagea. Kilowog opens his eyes for the first time since he was killed during the siege of Oa (see GREEN LANTERN #39)! Did he experience a Green Lantern rebirth along with the planet? Is he still the same surly Bolovaxian he always was, or has he been fundamentally changed? Will he be slain by the newly created sentient natives… or lead them? Welcome to Planet Poozer!

Plot by CAPTCLEGHORN
“THE SHADOW WAR HAP, Part 2”
Rhonda Pineda, known to us as Atomica, is being extensively debriefed by Checkmate following the “Humanity First” incident. There are minor inconsistencies in her answers but is that due to her experiences in a Green Lantern ring, or is she hiding something due to a somewhat extended alliance with Savage’s side?
Amanda Waller places Atomica into Thal’s custody and sends the pair to the Southern hemisphere to what’s believed to be the next Zeta beam hit bringing Adam Strange back and forth to Rann. Adam is Hawkgrrl’s best non-Thanagarian extraterrestrial contact and a “clear pair of eyes” to examine and consider the CAW situation.
Did we mention multiple life forms can catch a Zeta beam?

THE QUESTION #44
Writer: MARK RUSSELL

Plotter: CaptCleghorn
“How’d You Do on The Surprise Quiz?”
DCBA’s “me too” charade has been a ploy to throw false charges at Vic against which he would be exonerated and DCBA would be shown as supporting him fully. Vic is under contract and must stay at DCBA. Betty Bates, Lady@Law has been released from her responsibilities as being a lawyer for DCBA. Vic slyly puts her on retainer.
The metahuman harassing, for want of a better word, Hub City now has a name. They are known as the Quiz. Reports are quick to explain the pronoun is used because gender is unknown, not because of any preference by the Quiz. Another person is at many of the Quiz’s escapades. However he seems to be accepted without anyone minding or even caring. This annoys people more than the havoc the Quiz is wrecking. Vic’s team consisting of Alice Tesla, Merry the girl of a Googleplex of gimmicks, and Tot are unable to whip up a comic book device to track the weird powers (seriously these folks are somewhat real life) try to track any pattern in the havoc and/or chaos.
The Jukebox Musical based on the Siren’s life has just closed and Myra Fermin is coming home.

SENSATION COMICS #34 starring Wonder Woman ‘74
Written and Drawn by Amanda Conner
Assisted by CaptCleghorn
“Visitor from Outer Space, Book 3: Waterloo”
In your polyester suit,
With matching platform boots,
And the old Red, White and Blue.
Hippolyta has effectively ceded Themyscira to the alien woman named Andros based on the woman’s claim her people are truly the Greek Gods who helped the Amazons settle in Paradise Island. It may be the outside world’s effect on Diana, but what the Amazons claim is cooperation looks like blind obedience.
It’s been less than 36 hours, but the assembled United Nations has been waiting desperately as Andros left with Wonder Woman to do to the Amazon’s home island. With the planet’s very existence at stake, the assembled nations who are barely able to restrain from war must put their trust in a group of woman on an island no one has ever seen. Despite initial moves towards worldwide solidarity, nations are taking their own paths and seeking any opportunity they can to eliminate any possible threat. No radar had picked up any signs of Andros’ ship and her showing of advanced alien technology is beginning to be doubted. However, no one is willing to assume it's a prank.
On Themyscira, Diana takes a stand and barges into her mother’s former throne room to face Andros. Wonder Woman is unable to avoid violence and has her butt handed to her by Andros who reveals who she really is and how the truth and lies have been intertwined so deviously. Diana is banished to Man’s world with little hope.
Plus, on this month’s “Women of 1974” variant cover, the Chipko Movement (google it).
