Countdown #45 -- If the Monitors are really trying to clean up the cosmos and send lost beings back to where they belong, I'd say that leaving Forerunner behind in the National Mall was a bad idea...
Justice League of America #10 -- The end of the JLA/JSA/LSH team-up, and we find out who the LSH is trying to bring back from the dead. All I will say is most of the bloggers I read were close, but no cigar...
Madame Mirage #1 -- The Madame Mirage First Look convinced me to pick this up, and I'm glad I did. It's based in a world where there used to be super-heroes, but there were a lot more super-villains. So the nations of the world signed a treaty to outlaw super-powers. The heroes retired, but the villains went underground, still using their powers in secret. Who will oppose them? Heck, who even knows that they are still around? Mysterious super-heroine Mirage, that's who!
This is a pretty good book. I like the setup (I earlier described it as dystopian, but it isn't), I like Mirage and her sidekick Harper, I think I try this out for a few issues...
