This is a little tricky for me. I haven’t picked up a DC Comics series in a while, you see, they burned me out with too many crossovers and absolutely no reason in the madness (asides making me poor and letting me down). I needed a break from them… but than I see this logo: “Reign of Doomsday”.
Outsiders issue #37 is actually part two of DC Comic’s latest crossover event, “Reign of Doomsday”. Yeah, the monster that killed Superman and destroyed much of Metropolis is back and ready to beat down the heroes of the DC Comics Universe. The storyline began in the first issue of the new Steel series, which I will be going out to get this week so I can figure out what the heck is happening. Here is the official description of the new Outsiders issue:
In Markovia, the Eradicator struggles in battle against the murder-machine known as Doomsday! It’s a fight to the death with the lives of Geo-Force, Katana, the Looker, Halo and the Olympian all hanging in the balance! Meanwhile, under arrest by the U.S. government, Black Lightning and his Outsiders team find their backs against the wall as they’re forced to choose between a lifetime of imprisonment or leading an invasion of their former home base in Markovia!
The issue hits stands next Wednesday, March 9th, 2011. It is written by Dan DiDio and contains art from Keith Giffen and Mick Gray.
