AQUAMAN #19
Plot by EXCITER
Written by GEOFF JOHNS
Art by JIM LEE
“THE WAR FOR ATLANTIS” part one “DROWNING IN PROPAGANDA”
Since Black Adam presented evidence that the throne of Atlantis rightfully passed to the founders of Kahndaq and, eventually, to him, his announced intention to “retake” the underwater city-states has been championed by allies of Vandal Savage’s “Light.”
Queen Bee of Bialya has pledged to give financial and military support to the campaign. Brion Markov of Markovia has been convinced to do the same. Many in the United States are also pressuring their leaders to support Kahndaq. Commodore “Technocrat” Murphy, youthful trillionaire behind “the Green Team,” has convinced millions to change their profile pic to the Kahndaq flag under the pretense that modern Atlanteans are oppressive aquatic occupiers. Meanwhile, King Orm, the “Ocean Master,” is demonized in the media as a merman-supremacist threat to the surface world and colloquially referred to as “Fish Hitler.” Atlantis has few allies… and even their own betray them!
Frenzylord Vulgaris of Bazilia, founded by the legendary shark-rider Bazil, is about to sign a treaty agreeing to be absorbed as part of Kahndaq. This would give Black Adam a foothold beneath the waves and a considerable Carcharodon cavalry. Can Mera and Crablad convince Bazilia not to abandon Atlantis… or will they become chum?
Meanwhile, Aquaman decides to act directly. He confronts Black Adam face-to-face to demand he cease hostilities before hot war breaks out. Yet last time they met, Arthur was the “Aquagod” and enjoyed the powers of Poseidon (see AQUAMAN #12). He’s since lost that divinity and doesn’t stand a chance against Black Adam as a mere mortal! However, Adam doesn’t know about his recent de-powering, and Aquaman’s life might just depend on keeping that secret…

THE FLASH #34
Plot by EXCITER
Written by ROBERT KIRKMAN
Art by FRANK CHO
“S’KIDD MARKS”
Barry continues his undercover operation as “John Broome: Marathon Man” in the World Organization for Advancement of Humanity’s SD-1 speedster division, seemingly gaining the trust of W.O.A.H.’s Director, Captain Atom. But, somehow, his alter-ego has also gained a group of alien worshippers…
Apparently, at some point in the future, the Flash used the Speed Force to travel back in time to save Savothian society from destruction. As a result, he’s become a messianic figure with many man-dog-horse Savothians dedicating their entire lives to being like him… hence, S'kidd-Flash! Although S’kidd doesn’t recognize a disguised Barry as his messiah, he’s still happy to spread the good, fast word!
S'kidds'kakoth was genetically engineered in the womb to be a speedster, a holy-scientific honor among his kind that made him a sort of “chosen one” on Savoth, where a precious few could tap into the revered Speed Force. But it also came with responsibilities…
The enemies that the great Flash helped defeat in the past were never fully eradicated. Away from the advanced cities of Savoth, in the wilderness, there still dwelled… the Cheetahs! These speedy, cat-like savages would occasionally launch raiding parties and sporadic attacks - and it was S'kidd-Flash’s job to stop them! But when they kidnapped the daughter of the Savothian Arch-Scientist, could S’kidd rescue her? Or would his attempt be a failure that he’d spend the rest of his life trying to atone for?

GREEN LANTERN #34
Plot by EXCITER
Written by MARK MILLAR
Art by JOE MADUREIRA
“PURE EVAL”
Jordan! My office, now!
Corpsman Hal Jordan went renegade… again. But god damn it, he gets results!
Doomsday was a seemingly unstoppable engine of destruction that bedeviled the entire universe since he was first unlawfully created on primordial Krypton all those millennia ago. He was all rage but utterly lacked the one thing that Green Lanterns have in abundance: will power. That is, until Hal bent the rules to find a way to give him some…. But, despite that, Hal still caused Earth to effectively revoke the Green Lantern Corp’s jurisdiction to operate on the planet after (inadvertently) introducing the Doomsday Virus to the world (which he contracted while saving Earth-2). He then escaped a secure detention center with a convicted space felon, Despero, who subsequently disappeared.
So, what is Ganthet, Hal’s direct supervisor and esteemed Guardian of the Universe, going to do? Do Hal's pros outweigh his cons? Hal will certainly need to have the ability to overcome great fear as he must endure the rigors of… a performance evaluation!
Plus, can the newly in-control Doomsday actually be a force for good? Kilowog thinks so… if the poozer can make it through basic training! But with Doomsday’s history, will others ever allow him the chance at redemption?
Meanwhile, with the Lanterns restricted from Earth… wheels begin moving without their knowledge. Wheels that may spin humanity into the universe’s dominant species. Wheels greased… by Vandal Savage!

JLAlien #5
Plot by NX01A
Written by AL EWING

'INTO THE DARK, THE DEPTHS, INTO EVIL'
•A parallel Earth where Super Nazis conquered the world, slaughtered most of its population, and now prepare to create a star-spanning ÜBERREICH? You're probably wondering how we got here, and so do MAXWELL LORD and his two dimension-lost companions.
•VOODOO. Benefactor. Transgressor. Exotic dancer. Cur. The Führer, overman ÜBER, is fascinated by her once she, Max, and BLACKFIRE are escorted from orbit to his Wolfsschanze in Washington DC. Voodoo doesn't need her telepathy to tell that KARL ELL sees more in her than just beauty.
•In the late 1940s, Atlantis sided with what remained of the Allies, providing vital technomagic like the arcanukes which obliterated much of Germany, Japan, Paraside Island, and many supporting countries across the planet. Überreich retribution came in the form of alien dinoflagellates which created a permanent red tide, killing all ocean life including the Atlanteans.
•FRÄULEIN FÜRST was newly decanted from the Amazon gene crèche by her mothers and placed in a cloaked craft destined for Olympus not long before the arcanukes obliterated their stronghold's mystic shields and their sapphic island paradise. Damaged by the explosions, the invisible jet never breached the dimensional barriers, ditching instead into the Mediterranean where Über himself recovered it and its precious cargo. In the years that followed, she was raised as part of Über's Wölfinnen der Schutzstaffel, eventually becoming alpha female of the She Wolves of the SS. Fräulein Fürst's race memory of Amazon eugenics became the central axis around which the Überreich's plans revolved, and the dimensional technology from her escape craft would take them beyond the stars!
•Voodoo understands now that Über isn't admiring her beauty; he's admiring the beautiful genetic potential in her human-Kherubim-Daemonite DNA!
•Wait... Max and his two companions? Someone's missing, and that someone (invisible and intangible MA'ALEFA'AK) will soon discover that family reunions can be murder!

DETECTIVE COMICS #25
Writers SEAN MCARDLE (Fuhrer and The Tramp) & STEPHANIE PHILLIPS (We Only Kill Each Other)
Artist ELSA CHARRETIER (November)
Plotter: CAPTCLEGHORN (nothing in particular)
“Batman Year Negative 64”
Bruce Wayne continues his analysis of his amazing and powerful family history. In February of 1939, the German American Bund held a rally at New York’s Madison Square Garden. Although 20,000 attended, it gathered almost no additional support for their pro-nazi platform. The actual nazis refused them permission to use the swastika.
Plan B was to have a second rally in Gotham City, on April 20, 1939, hitler’s 50th birthday. Three individuals took the lead in planning the event. Dr. Art Schival, an Austrian scientist trapped in a condition forcing him to live at extreme subzero temperatures. He was known as Mr, Freeze. A German psychiatrist named Hugo Strang, adjusting his name to Hugo Strange. And perhaps the most dangerous, a large, muscular Amazonian woman known only as Bruno.
Bruce’s Great-Grandfather Patrick Wayne was one of the family who arguably did the most to build the Wayne fortune. He also helped to support the city through the depression, and he would be damned if nazis were to succeed in Gotham after failing in NYC. But the NYC rally did not have super-villains planning and supporting a seeming legal, even if evil, event.

Hawkwoman and Hawkman, aided by Christine St. Claire and Major Zastrow, find, corner, and subdue the villainous Shadow Thief Carl Sands. Unfortunately, that was the easy part.

Our heroes hope to be helpful in this discussion but with the disappearance of their supervisor Byth and the interference of CAW (Collective Assistance for Worlds), the Hawks’ tenure on Earth has gathered many questions and the two are being recalled to Thanagar for an indefinite period. The immediate departure leaves their daughter Chay-Ara behind.
Chay-Ara is currently involved in a case with Checkmate where she is working undercover to break up a Venom spiked fight club ring. The case is solved and Chay-Ara’s handler Carrie Kelley as well as Checkmate director Amanda “the Wall” Waller are satisfied enough to offer the Thanagarian adolescent a position within the organization. Will Chay accept?
