So – lets see what interests me this week!
The apocalyptic climax of the third and most ambitious volume to contain the League’s unfolding narrative, CENTURY: 2009 turns its scrutiny of the entire fictional landscape to the presently uproarious era as it hurtles to a staggering conclusion that even immortal champions may not survive. The eternal ambiguity Orlando is returned to an unrecognisable contemporary London and a collapsing world of moral, social and financial destitution. The intended antichrist is born, and even the most powerful eminences of the Blazing World have not been able to forestall his coming.
Now in one amazing volume collecting Showcase 6, 7, 11 and 12 and Challengers Of The Unknown #1-8, these are the original 1950s tales of four death defying adventurers and their incredible exploits.
‘I’m not here to bust you, I’m here to recruit you. How’d you like to work for your Uncle Sam, Eddie?’
And don’t miss the latest chapter of the Crimson Corsair backup epic from writer Len Wein and artist John Higgins!
This issue is also offered as a combo pack edition with a redemption code for a digital download of this issue.
