STARRO WARS #4
Plot by EXCITER
Written by ROBERT KIRKMAN and MARK MILLAR
Art by FRANK CHO and JOE MADUREIRA
“NO JUSTICE... JUST US”
The universe-shaking conclusion to Next Dawn’s first major line-wide event!!!
Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, the Flash, Green Lantern John Stewart, Steel, Aquaman, and the Martian Manhunter have taken the Javelin-7 into the heart of Starro’s swarm to face down the enormous five-pointed monster itself! But Starro’s legions are endless... and the Justice League’s focus is split!
Martian Manhunter and Aquaman strain to combine their telepathy and marine communication abilities to usurp control of the galaxy-spanning horde! They seek to push those that Starro mentally enslaved to attack and remove their brethren’s Starro spores, freeing them from control - but to do that, they must engage in a battle of wills with Starro deep within the creature’s own extremely-alien mindscape! What echinodermic horrors lie within?
While on that mental journey, it’s up to Superman, Wonder Woman, and the Green Lantern to defend their physical bodies from a galaxy’s worth of Starro-controlled assailants... but John Stewart’s ring is about to run out of energy!
Meanwhile, Vandal Savage and his own hand-picked team of metahumans followed the League and have a more... final plan for Starro: a weapon that will send a shockwave through the swarm - killing all the spores, but also causing fatal brain hemorrhages in at least fifty percent of those controlled. These acceptable loses to Vandal Savage are not acceptable to Batman, Steel, and the Flash! Can they stop the immortal killer and his “children” before quadrillions die?
This. Is. It. The action-packed end to STARRO WARS!

Plot By MARVELL2100
KILLIAN WAS HERE!
DRC Agent David Zavimbe and his U.S. counterpart Dakota Johnson are meeting with the CEO of Cadmus, Lena Killian. Killian is looking to invest in The Congo because of it's emergence as a tech hub. She wants to build a new R&D complex outside of the capitol but that requires a lot of land. Camdus is trying to buyout the locals to acquire the property but they have all refused. Lena was hoping to convince the DRC gov't to help her with her problem, promising jobs for the community as well as rewards for those that help her to accomplish her goals. But David is suspicious of Killians' motives(wouldn't you be?) and wonders why such interest in the DRC!
In Kiso, Kia comes face to face with Tasha al Ghul, the person behind the hi-tech guns flowing into The Congo. Tasha and Shadowlord take her on a ride out into the countryside far away from the city to a small secluded warehouse. Inside are more armed men and something else, two DRC police offers sitting on the floor tied to each other. Tasha tells Kia that this is just a little test that she needs to pass. Kill the police officers and prove to them that she's not an undercover cop! They give her a gun and Kia stands there with a difficult decision: kill the two officers to keep her cover or don't kill them, blow her cover and they all die!

"Krypton Rises" Part Six
After what seemed like hours of battle, Superman finally subdues Faora. He knows they must act quickly if they are to contain her for long, so he meets with Batman for assistance.

On Apokolips, Victor and Diana reach the armory. Here, Victor can plug into a power source strong enough to activate his Mother Box to send them home. Their stealth has not gone unnoticed, however...
Back on Earth, Arthur and Mera continue to work on the Phantom Zone devices. Meeting up with Superman and Batman, Mera notes that things are progressing too easily, to which Arthur agrees. Why did Faora plant devices that could be dismantled so easily? And...why is Faora laughing?
The device in Mera's hands explodes in light, sending the team flying! A Boom Tube opens! Victor and Diana appear, with dozens of Parademons chasing right behind them! The devices Faora was planting weren't Phantom Zone devices after all...they were Apokoliptian!

DEADLY HANDS OF CONNOR HAWKE #15
Plotter: MARVELL2100
Writer: JEFF LEMIRE
Artist: ANDREA SORRENTINO
THE ASSOCIATION OF ASSASSINATION: THE LEFT HAND CLAN
While Connor is inside the Temple of Hao Shu Shin, Magus, Jax and Naomi are surrounded by dozens of ninja as they come face to face with the assassin Shiva, leader of The Left Hand Clan! It is a clan so dedicated, so deadly that each follower has cut off their right hand to show their loyalty to her. Even with one hand, they are some of the most feared fighters in the world! Shiva and Magus know each other as they were both members of The Guild but that will not stop her and her servants from carrying out their mission: anyone who enters the temple must die!
Inside, Connor listens as the bear known as Tse Shun(pronounced "say -shun"), tells him the story of The Guild, how in the beginning, they were the fierce defenders of China, protecting them from foreign powers who would corrupt and subjugate her people. But they were betrayed by the Zhou Dynasty who saw them as a threat to their own power. The Guild was nearly wiped out but a few escaped and went into hiding. The few survivors vowed never again to pledge themselves to a country and secretly declared war on all nations! They were responsible for assassinations, genocides and other heinous crimes throughout history.
Tse Shun tells Connor that there is a prophecy that says "One born of The Guild shall destroy The Guild". It was believed that Connors' father was to be the one. However, it was a mis-truth(fake news everywhere!). Connor's father was never the chosen one, that destiny belongs to him!

THE FLASH #15 *Starro Wars Tie-In*
Plot by EXCITER
Written by ROBERT KIRKMAN
Art by FRANK CHO
“FLASH IN THE PAN”
The Flash has never pushed his speed harder than on the warp treadmill than enabled the Justice League’s Javelin-7 spaceship to outpace most of Starro’s forces and get close enough to strike at the main echinoderm itself! Exhausted, he still can’t slow down!
While his team handles Starro, it’s up to Barry, alongside the grim vigilante Batman and the genius engineer Steel, to stop his old nemesis Vandal Savage from taking drastic measures to end Starro that would have the collateral consequence of killing half of everyone with a spore - which, by this point, includes both Iris West and his father, Henry Allen!
Flash fact: a Hemorrhagic Stroke occurs when a ruptured blood vessel causes bleeding inside the brain.
Standing in Flash's way are the hand-picked metahuman “descendants” of Vandal Savage: individuals with mighty powers indoctrinated into Savage’s radical human-supremacist ideology. One has a demonic claw. Two others are speedsters... speedsters that Barry is very familiar with. Hiawatha, swiftest Chief of the Onondaga, and Red Streak, the fastest Soviet alive! He met them both in the past (see THE FLASH #9 and #10), but how are they here now, why are they working with Savage, and can he possibly stop them both?!?
Meanwhile, with the League distracted, stowaway Gorilla Grodd escapes the Javelin. He hates both Savage and the Flash, so who will he strike at in their moment of weakness?

John Stewart has to keep the Martian Manhunter and Aquaman alive while they telepathically fight Starro in the creature’s mindscape. He’s working with gods, Wonder Woman and Superman, but his ring is now completely depleted and powerless and he cannot recharge after the Central Battery was destroyed on Oa. A mere man cannot survive long against Starro’s legions, especially when they include mind-controlled powerhouses like Lobo. Good thing Stewart’s no mere man...he’s a United States Marine! The Javelin-7 spaceship was packed with conventional weapons, so it’s time to make his final stand!
This is Hal Jordan... of the Red Lantern Corps. Time to f*** s*** up!
Dealing with his own dead battery, Hal has swapped ring colors. Now a Red Lantern, he leads the rage-filled Corps head-on into Starro’s front lines as they advance on Earth. He’s got to buy time for the Justice League to do its thing, so the mission is kill echinoderms... or die trying!
