JUSTICE LEAGUE UNITED: FUTURES END #1 Jeff LeMire (writer) Jed Dougherty (artist) Gabe Eltaeb (colorist) 32 pg • FC • RATED T 3-D Motion Edition: $3.99 US 2-D Standard Edition: $2.99 US In the concluding chapter of the epic story that began in this month’s JUSTICE LEAGUE: FUTURES END #1, the armies of Mars rise against the unsuspecting population of Earth – and only the combined might of the Justice League and the Legion of Super-Heroes can stand against them! REVIEW: Like I'm not going to review a comic featuring a member of the Legion on the cover. I was surprised to discover that this story is a continuation of another comic, since it reads like it stands alone. It definitely has that going for it, and set "five years in the future," it lays out all of the mystery that teases a reader, much less a fan. At first glance the Futures End concept seems intriguing enough to get me involved, until I stop to think about it and realize that I read something like this before in Armageddon 2001. Sure, it's supposed to seem different, but I can't help but wonder when all of the foreseen changes will be undone or completely ignored.
RACHEL RISING #27 Terry Moore (writer & artist) BW • 24 pages • $3.99 Aunt Johnny & Earl discover they have a new serial killer on the loose, while Rachel spreads the word around town that she was murdered and she is looking for the man responsible! And to make it a perfect day, Zoe runs into an old classmate. REVIEW: I am a big fan of Strangers In Paradise, but I have no idea why I was so hesitant to pick up this title. I had some trouble getting into Echo, so that might have had me hesitant to pick up this title at a time when buying new comics was a luxury. Now that I can afford to buy comics, I tend to try out new things from time to time. After immediately remembering how much I liked SiP, I decided to give this, which I knew to be closer in tone to that series than Echo, a try.
