The Show Must Go On last edited by pikahyper on 04/20/21 04:08AM View full history

FLASH FACT! For their last performance – an escape act!

Haley's Circus is travelling through Europe, providing entertainment for various cities and a means of survival on the run from the war. The show's 'sideshow freaks' draw crowds with the inhuman flexibility of Ragdoll, the grotesque appearance and strength of King Shark, and the future-predicting abilities of a helmeted Dr. Fate. However, the large crowds come to see the Circus' acrobats and main attraction, Deadman and the Flying Graysons. Boston Brand, Deadman, is an arrogant, abrasive trapese artist that performs death-defying feats, while the Graysons are a family of three that put on a conventional show. When Dr. Fate shows Boston a glimpse into the future, it becomes clear that Fate is more than just a carnival attraction.

Decent Writing, Breathtaking Art 0

One of the more interesting aspects of the Flashpoint event has been just how closely the various writers and artists have stuck to both the traditional aspects of their various characters and to the overall plot of the Atlantis-Themyscira war. JT Krul and Mikel Janin's Deadman series, for example, offers both radically different versions of their spotlight characters and a side-story to the larger conflict that is still directly affected by it. The end result is a story that, thus far, feels ve...

A Surprisingly Fun Issue 0

Again, I gotta agree with G-Man's review for this issue, the cover alone is absolutely gorgeous. I'm so tempted to get it blown up and turned into a real poster for my room.  Chiff Chiang has outdone himself I'm looking forward to picking up the title for the remaining 2 issues... but not for his covers alone.  JT Krul is a polarizing writer (from his great Teen Titans run to his derided Arsenal series), but here he brings his A-game.  If you've been reading Brightest Day, much of the Deadman s...
