Having fought their way through the savage land at the center of the Earth, Claw and his allies have finally reached the region’s principle settlement - a fortified colony known as Shamballah! The wizard Arion of Atlantis founded the burgeoning metropolis after the Great Upheaval sunk his homeland, though he admittedly was unprepared for the inexplicable dangers that arise frequently in the mystical realm of Skartaris.
Despite good intentions, Arion made mistakes. He was also a near-immortal wizard and would always stand apart and aloof from mortal men. He believes the denizens of Skartaris now need one of their own to rally around. A hero. A fighter. A Warlord. Could destiny have delivered Claw the Unconquered to claim that mantle?
With Shamballah’s armies at his back, Claw could liberate his homeland of Pytharia from the evil King Vandar Adg (Vandal Savage). But before he can free his people, he must free himself...
Arion reveals that Claw’s cursed hand cannot be cured. The appendage binds him forever to the demon Belial, with whom he constantly struggles for dominance. The only way to end that war of wills... is to slay the demon! Arion can open a portal to the underworld, but Belial is powerful and has but one exploitable weakness... a human hand! Can Claw survive the fires of Hell to finally win the battle for his own mind? And what role will Belial’s young son Etrigan play in this contest?

"Krypton Rises" Part Three
The Flash wakes up on a table in STAR Labs. He has a mild concussion, but otherwise in good shape considering his run-in with Faora. STAR is trying to track her movements via satellite, but she's moving fast around the planet and only stopping intermittently for mere moments before moving again. Superman sets off to search for her, while Batman tries to speak again to Hamilton.
At the Daily Planet, Lois Lane is working on a story about the flood damage in Amnesty Bay, and wondering if she could get a quote from Aquaman if she asks Clark nicely...when suddenly WGBS breaks in on the local news to report sightings of Parademons off the coast of Africa! Are these stragglers left over from Steppenwolf's invasion? Or are these new scouts? And why is Lois suddenly so nauseous?
Batman meets with Prof. Hamilton, who is still mostly out of it. The walls of his room have long been overflowing with Kryptonian writing and words and phrases. Batman disconnects the camera in the room, and removes his cowl hoping he can reach Hamilton better as Bruce Wayne. He begins talking to him, and minutes pass. Hamilton stops, and turns to Bruce, his eyes still a pale white, and he speaks: "Bell...Rung...Ding Ding Ding Ding Ding..."

You know how they say not to jump into the water yourself to rescue someone drowning? Same goes for time! You’re supposed to rely on a professional. Iris West believed she was doing just that when she enlisted Booster Gold to help her find the Flash. Turns out... he’s just a dudebro from the future with “borrowed” tech and zero real expertise. He begs her not to expose his secret in her next Central City Citizen article, and she’ll consider it... if they can ever get back from the Cretaceous Period!
But even a broken watch is right twice a day! Booster did hit the mark, as somehow Barry got himself flushed down the time-stream and landed into the same era. Can he reunite with Iris and get Booster’s temporal machine working before they all fall victim to perhaps Earth’s first speedster... the apex predator... the fastest dinosaur alive... Velocity-Raptor?!?
Flash Fact: Velociraptor, meaning "swift seizer" in Latin, is a genus of dromaeosaurid theropod dinosaur that lived approximately 75 to 71 million years ago.
Meanwhile, in the present, Vandal Savage realizes he may have underestimated the threat of Gorilla City. The Light’s influence in Africa was clearly insufficient to defeat Grodd’s forces. The Light, however, has global reach. Savage decides the entire world must target the upstart primates. Blaming them for the destruction of a United States Naval Vessel should do the trick - and Cheetah is all to happy to carry out his plan for a false flag attack!

This is the Green Lantern Corps. To any who can receive this message, Oa has fallen. Repeat, Oa has fallen. Nowhere is safe.
Hal Jordan was too late. His supervisor Ganthet, secretly possessed by Starro, systematically weakened the planetary headquarters of the Green Lantern Corps and left it vulnerable. Starro’s legions, comprised of warriors from twelve entire galaxies, surge forth and swarm. The universe has never seen a fleet of such vast enormity.
Hal, John Stewart, and Kilowog risk everything to evacuate Oa, safeguard the remaining Guardians of the Universe, and relocate the Central Power Battery. Without that Battery, Lanterns cannot recharge their rings and will eventually become powerless... which is exactly what Starro wants!
With a mind-controlled Doomsday as the tip of Starro’s proverbial spear, the Corps faces odds that are more than overwhelming! But they must fight on, for without Green Lanterns to hold the line, Starro may be unstoppable...
And Starro’s next target is Earth!

Henshaw, in the corner, isn't doing very well...the vampiric venom coursing through his flesh, staved off only by his Kryptonian cybernetics.

“How Do You Get to Carnegie Hall?”
The nefarious Sportsmaster is back in Hub City. He’s representing the sensational Lorelei Circe, the singer/entertainer/entrepreneur/businesswoman known as the Siren. Now, running tours for a pop icon may not be the most trustworthy profession, but it’s not illegal. And the Siren bringing her talents to Hub City at a time when the Hub is suffering in so many ways is an action which will strengthen local businesses. How can there be anything wrong with these celebrities wanting to help Hub City in its decades of need?
But Vic is concerned and curious. Both Crusher Crock and Lorelei Circe are suspected to be part of the secretive society known colloquially as the Illuminati. And when they gather together, the plot thickens.
For those of you doubters who dismiss Vic’s conspiracy claims, keep in mind, that Lorelei is debuting in both this and the crossover book the same month. Surely, the act of an overreaching corporate entity. #mindblown

Book 2: “Who Is John Galt?”
Vic’s quest to find out what Rex Graine is doing has gone slowly. It’s clear that there is some vengeful action planned, but beyond that, nothing is clear. Vic’s also wondering what the real motivations of the mysterious “Spider-Man” are? A super-powered man just out to stop crimes? Seems like a comic book.
Vic has a back-up goal for his NY trip. The notorious and prominent singer/performer/entrepreneur Lorelei Circe, better known to Planet Earth as The Siren is in NYC for a concert and Tot has tickets which he gave the kid two of, leaving one for Vic to use to investigate the singer behind the scenes. The presence of the disreputable figure known only as Mysterio is handling special effects for the concert which raises Vic’s suspicions even more. Mysterio is considered the master of illusion and can make people believe they are seeing anything and Siren is said to control men’s minds. This is certainly a threat that needs to be stopped.
As for why Tot’s not at the concert, he’s visiting Peter Parker’s (the kid interviewed last issue) aunt and guardian May Parker. And Tot’s bringing flowers. Roses.
