Wild Dog gets the cover of Action 604. No comment.
Owsley and Kane put John Stewart on the hot seat in this story. Because he was known as Green Lantern, he is implicated in the damage done by Hal Jordan during his fight with Star Sapphire. As John is trying to explain, Hal’s ring suddenly lands on his finger, and puts him into costume.
Carol Ferris has shown up to testify, and John accuses her of killing his wife. It then appears that John suffocates Carol in the middle of the courtroom, before dozens of witnesses. But John knows he is not causing that.
Indeed, Carol is not dead, she just made it look that way, so now the police are after John. What a bitch.
John sends the ring back to find Hal, but maybe shouldn’t have done that, as he then gets arrested. On the other hand, Hal in in chains on an alien planet, so he needs it as well.
Collins, Beatty and Nyberg have the morality squad go after a comic book store in this one, blowing it up, and ensuring the hatred of all of the readers.
Wild Dog catches up with them as they attack a truck driver for carrying porn mags, among the many other things in his shipment. Wild Dog gets shot.
He does not die, I’m sorry to say. There is more of his series coming.
The Secret Six go after a teenage tech wizard, the president of Technodyne, in this chapter, by Pasko and Spiegle. A few issues earlier, a small town was wiped out by the acid rain from a technodyne factory.
The boy they are going after lives in a pleasure palace, and is a huge fan of horror films. The “attack” on the boy is also a diversion, as the company’s records are raided.
The boy is confronted by the killer from his favourite slasher series, and the Six get the information they need. The new Six. The bodies of the old Six have just been discovered…
Baron, Jurgens and DeZuniga begin this Deadman chapter with a bang, as the spaceship bursts out of the pyramid.
It just keeps flying up into space. Deadman catches up and takes control of the terrified and confused CIA operative inside, but cannot figure out the controls. He puts the man into a trance, and returns to Earth.
That doesn’t work so well for him, as the CIA chief has her super-weapon.
Now that she has Deadman bottled, I should probably start calling her by her name, Major Kasaba.
Blackhawk puts his plan into operation thanks to Grell, Burchett, and Marcos. Janos Prohaska and Cynthia Hastings fly into the Red Dragon’s territory, and pretend the plane has sprung a leak.
Andre Blanc-Dumont gets brought into the series. Or at least, an effort is made to do so. He’ll be back when he is ready.
And we end as Blackhawk meets the Red Dragon.
