This Week’s Comic

  • References in Justice Society of America (vol. 4) #4 to Per Degaton’s history in both All-Star Comics #35 (Jun–Jul 1947) and JSA #72 (Jun 2005).
  • We finally get to meet the Justice Society of the present-time DCU in this issue (although it’s still reading closer to a future-Huntress book than I’d personally prefer). Apparently Beth Chapel and Yolanda Montez were resurrected as a prelude to the Lazarus Planet events; they were originally killed back in Eclipso #13 (Nov 1993). (How this fits with Doomsday Clock #12 is left as an exercise for a reader who reads more event minis than I do.)
  • The “Next Issue” line is very, uh, Zero Hour.

  • Hey, the Amazing Spider-Mail printed my letter!
    Dear Albert and Nick,

It was nice to see the Coffee Bean crowd together again, even just briefly. I've seen plenty of letters asking when the big 'What Did Peter Do?' mystery will get resolved, but what I want to know is when we'll get to see the Randy Robertson/Janice Lincoln wedding! Lots of good potential for gang-related hijinks, methinks.

Martin Pyne, Sunnyvale, CA.

Hey, Martin! Hope all is sunny in Sunnyvale! More Randy and Janice is coming down the pike sooner than you may think! Maybe they're responsible for what happened to Peter and MJ?!
    Unfortunately it is quite rainy today.
  • The actual solution to the “What Did Peter Do?” mystery appears to call back to the Zeb Wells-written Wolverine team-up back in Amazing Spider-Man #555–557, which I had honestly entirely forgotten about except for Chris Bachalo’s art.
  • Irey West unlocked “choose her own hero name!”
  • I see Chip Zdarsky felt the need to subtweet everybody who says that Bruce Wayne doesn’t spend money on charity.
