Time Masters: Vanishing Point

November 5, 2011

Amazing. 20 years after DC made a spectacular blotched job with a similarly-titled limited series, there seems to be no pressure to do it right this time at all. If anything, Time Masters appears to have become the stamp for cynically-written comics, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing. I dare anyone to find a redemptive quality in this book. The time travellers brought together by Rip Hunter now include superheroes Booster Gold, Superman, and Green Lantern. That’s a seismic shift in job qualification, but don’t let it fool you. The quest remains equally meaningless on an epic scale at every turn. There’s consistency.

Time Masters

November 4, 2011

Following the highly entertaining 2006-2007 series 52, some pretty strange decisions were made at DC’s Head Office. One of these was to reprint Bob Wayne and Lewis Shiner’s 8-issue Time Masters from 1990. I guess everything from its archives will eventually get at least one round of re-release, and it does make business sense to cash in on a character who has recently found mass appeal again. But that’s as much excuse as I can generate for this 2008 appearance of the best-forgotten series.

R.E.B.E.L.S.: The Son and the Stars

December 27, 2010

So everything is moving along nicely for this hugely entertaining series — among the better ones to emerge for DC in a while — and what happens? You get a crossover event. If you ever need one reason why comic universe crises shouldn’t affect every single character at any time at the same time, this is it. DC’s almost megalomaniacal wish for harmonisation throws a box of spanners into a plot machinery that has otherwise been churning along smoothly.
