Yes, it is a free comic and yes, it does feature some pretty darn good art, but the glaring error on DC's part is to make the primary focus of this comic an event slated for "next year. Given that the underlying notion of Free Comic Book Day is to draw attention to comic books and, ideally, bring in new or lapsed readers, I set this before my lovely and talented wife who hasn't regularly read a comic since "The Ray" by Christopher Priest and Howard Porter back in Why's Superman fighting Green Lantern?
Which Green Lantern is that? What's wrong with her face? Maybe Wonder Woman hit her, it's hard to tell. One thing that is easy to tell is that this comic is directed towards fans in the know or at least slightly out of the insider bubble.
How else do you explain the appearance of Vibe? This issue pulls back the mystery on Pandora a bit as well as revealing some history with Phantom Stranger and introducing a new Question. See what I mean about not necessarily being the friendliest book for new readers? All the same, the art looks great.
Some of the pages, Gene Ha's in particular, are so jammed with details that devoted fans are sure to study them far beyond what Steve Sunu has already prepared for us. Also included in this comic are two-page samples of the Second Wave books: She remarks that she was sentenced to an eternity of loneliness and pain and of being told she is evil for opening a box.
In the Red Room and the present, several scientists one of them Silas Stone are looking over the remains of an android, presumably Amazo. A computer states that lockdown is occurring, prompting Doctor Stone to state that some has been interfering with the Red Room's collected technology and forcing inactive machinery to turn on.
Another scientist, referred to as Sarah Thomas, says that Silas' son Victor , now the hero Cyborg, is needed to figure out the source of the problem. Stone responds that Victor has been ignoring his calls, prompting Thomas to criticize Stone's treatment of his son; as of late, he has been more interested in seeing the machine his son is than the man he's become.
Silas counters that, if the technology used to save Victor's life had existed ten years ago, his wife would still be alive.
Their conversation is interrupted by another scientist, stating he'd gotten a monitor working that would show them images from another universe. Pandora is seen in the background walking away, saying what she needed was not there.
Inside A. Etta argues that, despite this, they still caused millions of dollars worth of property damage during the battle, Trevor laughing it off as the fault of Green Arrow , a story they spread to keep the League's reputation clean.
Candy mentions that they had lost track of the super-human teens in Alaska, their increasing information on Talia al Ghul's recruitment, and that Trevor's sister had called to ask him to come to dinner. He responds with, "Maybe," which prompts Etta to remind him he's cancelled on her every time she'd asked.
He argues that he's simply too busy most of the time, changing his answer to, "Probably," to appease her. He notices a book on the table the same written by David Graves , Candy saying it arrived that morning with no return address, fingerprints, or DNA to speak of.
Their conversation is interrupted when a voice on the intercom alerts them that someone has broken into the Black Room again. Rushing in with a group of armed guards, Trevor confronts Pandora.
She lifts a tarp off a case before drawing a gun at the men. She remarks that the his collection is impressive, but what she has found belongs to her. Firing at the men, her magic bullets disorient the men long enough for her to shoot the lock off the case and grab the Box. Trevor attempts a counterattack with his men, but Pandora escapes too quickly.
Angered, Trevor remarks that the Room should have prevented her from using magic inside it, while a voice remarks that Doctor Stone reported a cyber attack on the Red Room.
He orders all the Rooms to be locked down, mentioning one called "The Circus" being of greatest importance. One guard remarks that they should call the Justice League, though Trevor cryptically replies that, "It's just a matter of time before this ALL comes crashing down.
