Issue #2

The epic high-fantasy DC Universe adventure continues as a shocking assassination has the kingdoms on the brink of world war! From worldwide bestselling writer Tom Taylor (DCeased, Superman: Son of Kal-El) and acclaimed artist Yasmine Putri comes a generational high-fantasy tale of good and evil within the DCU!

Writer: Tom Taylor

The issue begins moments after the Green Knight has helped the Archer kill Jor-El with a magic arrow. Incenced, Bruce tracks him down and goes medieval on his ass, lopping off his bow arm. Back in Jefferson’s kingdom he proudly watches each of his children control their powers, while Constantine warns that there will be consequences for the assassination.

We find out that Bruce has been locking up anybody suspected of magic and in the dungeons, we find Flash, Blue Demon and others across from Arrow. Clark shows him mercy trying to slow down the inevitable war, but on Amazon Island, the news of her father’s death reaches Zara Jor-El.

Taylor’s deft hand takes each of the characters and magically transforms them into something new, the hidden face of the Green Knight will be the big reveal over the next few issues but the romance between this world’s Wonder Woman and Supergirl will have all the trolls grumpily moaning about an imaginary world. The issue again finishes on a shocking final page and it seems Taylor likes to leave them begging for more each issue

Artist: Yasmine Putri

Putri artwork is again the star of the show in this issue showing off her talents with lots of tiny little details such as the caged heroes and villains, as well as fleshing out the Kingdom of Storms before the shocking final pages.

Overall Thoughts

DC and Marvel seem to be at their best when they allow writing and artistic talents to come up with Elseworld or What If? style stories. The reader doesn’t need thousands of back issues, rather just surface knowledge of characters to dive in. Taylor creates a fascinating Supergirl character that will annoy the petty fanbois but excite and inspire everyone else. Can he and Putri keep up this breakneck momentum?

T'was a cold dark night in East Kilbride... and below the roundabouts, something old and ancient began to shudder awake. The world would rue the day that it gave the Green Jaguar comics to read!
