When Bruce Wayne becomes the target of a murderous race-car driver, Batman takes the wheel – with an assist from Diana Prince. This Mike Sekowsky story hasn’t aged well, but it’s still fun as a product of its time.
Starker, a space bounty hunter, leaves his pleasure-satellite vacation to pursue three pirates to the planet Pheidos. This weird mix of dated tropes gets a boost from the strong pencils of writer/artist Mike Sekowsky.
Following a brutal battle, the mercenary Moon Knight delivers the werewolf to the Committee – then has a change of heart. This is a reheated second appearance for Moon Knight, by creators Doug Moench and Don Perlin.
Five artificial teens with superpowers are created as corporate assets – but may prove to have minds of their own! There are hints of something here, but Mark Evanier and Will Meugniot’s indie superhero book never quite connects during this lackluster debut outing.
In a future Gotham City, an older Batman and Robin team to battle a color-themed secret society of nostalgia thieves. An unsatisfying conclusion undermines an otherwise entertaining comic by David V. Reed, Walter Simonson and Dick Giordano.
A team of Legionnaires battle the Prophet, a priest given massive powers by a mysterious entity called Omen. A surprisingly disappointing outing from the usually superb creative team of Paul Levitz and Keith Giffen.
Space voyager Alpha and his unexpected female companion, Omega, explore a new dimension and are soon tempted by Lucifer. An odd and ultimately preachy Christian comic with some interesting art from writer/artist Al Hartley.
Contrary to its striking cover, this issue actually features three unconnected – and largely uninspired – tales featuring Batman, Aquaman and the Legion of Super-Heroes. From creative talent including Gerry Conway, Paul Levitz, Don Newton and others.
Under the influence of Crossfire’s Undertaker Machine, Hawkeye and Mockingbird are soon forced to battle each other to the death. A surprise conclusion helps, but, ultimately, Mark Gruenwald’s auteur opus fails to meet its lofty aspirations.
