After missing a month due to real-life problems and technical disasters, the Comics Cast returns!

This may be the closest we ever come to emulating the scheduling triumphs of such classics as Flash: Rebirth, Final Crisis: Legion of Three Worlds, or even Planetary, so… uh, that’s good… right?

  • Justice League #5
  • Action Comics #5
  • Aquaman #5
