#100 Judge Dredd: The Judge Child Quest

Spoiler: show
Image

Judge Dredd’s own Star Wars, with a splash of Homer’s Odyssey. Dredd leads a crack team (including Judge Hershey in her debut appearance) in search of the mythical Judge Child, who will bring balance to the (police) force – the perfect setup to bob from outlandish situation to outlandish situation across the Cursed Earth and into space, taking in a first encounter with the fearsome Mean Machine Angel, a first look at the cowboy chic of Texas City, Dune-inspired Oracle Spice hallucinations and the brilliant, absurdly terrifying Jigsaw Disease that erases its sufferer Tetris-block by Tetris-block from existence.

The first long-form John Wagner and Alan Grant team-up, the pair would not only go on to craft more Judge Dredd mega-epics, but re-energised a cluttered and predictable era for Batman with a stripped-down and altogether darker run on Detective Comics, focusing on pulpy short-stories with fresh villains. This is where it all began though, taking Dredd outside his comfort zone into world of brilliantly surreal speculative escapism.

If Judge Child is Dredd’s answer to the precocious Anakin Skywalker, then Joe does what we all wished we could have done with the mystical runt…

#99 The Zero Hour

Spoiler: show
Image

Zero Hour was a 1994 comic book miniseries and crossover storyline that ran in DC Comics. In it, the one-time hero Hal Jordan, who had until then been a member of the intergalactic police force known as the Green Lantern Corps, mad with grief after the destruction of his home town of Coast City, and having obtained immense power as Parallax, attempted to destroy, and then remake, the DC Universe. The crossover involved almost every DC Universe monthly series published at the time. The issues of the series itself were numbered in reverse order, beginning with issue #4 and ending with #0 (i.e. 'counting down to zero'). The series was written and penciled by Dan Jurgens, with inks by Jerry Ordway.

Zero Hour was intended by DC as a belated follow-up to their landmark limited series Crisis on Infinite Earths, and was indeed subtitled "(A) Crisis in Time". It promised to do for the inconsistent future timelines of the DC Universe what Crisis had done for its parallel worlds: unify them into a new one.

The event served as an opportunity to reconcile some of the problems left unaddressed by Crisis and other problems that had been unintentionally caused by it. In particular, the revised characters of the post-Crisis universe had been rolled out gradually, with DC continuing to feature the old versions until the new versions were launched, some of them a year or several after the first wave of same (i.e. Superman: The Man of Steel and Batman: Year One). The character of Hawkman was one of the most problematic, since the revised version didn't first appear until 1989. This raised the question of what version of Hawkman had been seen since 1986. (He had been retconned to be both the Golden Age Hawkman and a Thanagarian spy.) The Legion of Super-Heroes faced similar problems with the elimination of Superboy from DC continuity. (Valor, aka Mon-El, a character with similar powers, had been recast to take his place as the Legion's inspiration and most powerful member.) These and other retcons were not always well received by readers and often introduced new problems.

The apparent villain of the story presented in the miniseries was a character named Extant (see also Hawk), who was using his temporal powers to unravel the DC Universe's timeline. In a confrontation with members of the Justice Society of America, Extant aged several of them (removing the effect that had kept these heroes of the 1940s vital into the 1990s), leaving them either feeble or dead. The true power behind the destruction of the universe - caused by temporal rifts of entropy - turned out to be former Green Lantern Hal Jordan, now calling himself "Parallax." Jordan had previously gone insane, and was now trying to remake the universe, undoing the events which had caused his breakdown and his own murderous actions following it. The collective efforts of the other superheroes managed to stop Jordan/Parallax from imposing his vision of a new universe, and the universe was recreated anew, albeit with subtle differences compared to the previous one. This 'blanking out/recreation' of the DC Universe was reflected in many of the tie-in issues; near the end of several of the tie-ins, the world began to disappear, and the last page of the book (or in some cases, several pages) had been left blank.

Hal Jordan, whose descent into villainhood outraged some fans, was later exonerated of his crimes in the 2004-2005 miniseries Green Lantern: Rebirth, which revealed that Parallax was a separate entity that had possessed Jordan, and was responsible for his murderous actions.

Eventually almost every person seemingly murdered by Hal Jordan/Parallax had returned from the dead or was shown to have somehow survived.

#79 Adam Warlock: The Magus Saga
Spoiler: show

At '70s Marvel there was no who quite mastered the startling scope and high-concept complexity of truly cosmic adventure like writer/artist and overall Renaissance man, Jim Starlin. His first effort with Captain Marvel redefined a character. His second with Adam Warlock set the tone for star-spanning spectacle that is considered a high-water mark to this day. Taking the legacy laid out by Lee, Kirby, Thomas and Kane, Jim Starlin evolved Warlock to the next level, imbuing the character with the furies and inner demons of a man-god on the brink of insanity. Forced to confront the Magus, an evil version of himself, and the nihilistic menace, Thanos, Warlock's conflicts weren't just knuckle-grinding throw-downs, they were epic, existential struggles for the very soul.

Spoiler: show

After the Wes Craven movie was released and the Swamp Thing comics failed to catch on, DC decided to place a young Alan Moore on the fledgling title, not expecting the book to even last another year. What followed was a groundbreaking run on the book that not only changed the character, but comics themselves.

Alan Moore stripped fans of every preconceived notion that they had for the title, and drastically changed the mythology of Swamp Thing. No longer was he a bland scientist turned monster thanks to a horrific accident; instead, Moore turned Swamp Thing into the physical embodiment of nature and opened the door for more socially conscious stories.

And to insure that Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, the Flash and the rest of the JLA do not interfere with his plans, he individually defeats each of the heroes using strategies developed by Batman himself! And when the League learn of his betrayal, they look to expel the Dark Knight from their ranks.

#61 Starman: Grand Guignol

Spoiler: show
Image

Starman is the coming-of-age story of Jack Knight, who reluctantly assumes the mantle of heroism after his older brother David's death in battle. Jack, estranged from his family, agrees to use the energy-harnessing cosmic rod his father invented to be the original Starman in the 1940s to avenge his brother and protect his beloved Opal City (he eschews the garish costume of his predecessors, however, instead favoring a leather jacket and aviator goggles). In the skilled hands of Robinson and several talented artists, Starman is the rare superhero comic that favors character development and complex, extended story lines over slugfests. In this penultimate volume of a series collecting Starman's 80-issue run, Jack returns from an extended adventure in space to find Opal City menaced by evil forces led by the Shade. Jack prepares for an epic battle for the city that ends in triumph and tragedy. Robinson's ambitious approach can fall victim to overwrought narration and inflated dialogue, yet it is one of the more interesting comic-book renditions of the hero's journey.

#100 Judge Dredd: The Judge Child Quest

The first long-form John Wagner and Alan Grant team-up, the pair would not only go on to craft more Judge Dredd mega-epics, but re-energised a cluttered and predictable era for Batman with a stripped-down and altogether darker run on Detective Comics, focusing on pulpy short-stories with fresh villains.


Is it known which issue of 2000 AD was Grant's first as Dredd co-writer? GCD only credits Grant as co-writer on the final five chapters.

Wagner and Grant only co-wrote four issues of Detective Comics, as they found they had too many differences of opinion when working on serious stories. 'Tec #587-597 were credited to the pair, who were afraid of breaking their contract with DC, but were solely written by Grant.

#98 Batman: First Tale of the Demon

By Denny O’Neil, Neal Adams, Bob Brown, Irv Novick and Dick Giordano


I read this one again recently and enjoyed it hugely, but it's a pity it wasn't all pencilled by Neal Adams. Novick and/or Giordano seem to have been under instructions to include swipes from Adams of Batman and Ra's at various points, and these stick out like a sore thumb.

O'Neil seems to have regarded the Batman who appeared in the JLA as apocryphal, as when he becomes aware of the threat to the world, he packs Robin off to college then heads off to confront Ra's alone, never considering getting on the batphone to round up Superman, Wonder Woman and the rest of the gang.

Strange that the cover of the first part of this said part 1 of 9, but the story ran to twelve issues. Perhaps they should have stuck to nine, as I thought most of the artwork on the issues not drawn by Alan Davis was pretty poor.

It was the dawn of a new age for the Man of Steel that endures today.

Or it did until they rebooted everything.

Strange that they got Jerry Ordway to draw a new cover for the TPB. Were they not on speaking terms with Byrne at that point?

#88 Thor: The Ballad of Beta Ray Bill
It was the first work of Walt Simonson in the title, and the first appearance of Beta Ray Bill.

It was Simonson's first work as writer/artist on the title, but he had previously pencilled Thor #260-271 and Thor Annual #7.

#83 Elektra: Assassin
Why did she die, and how did she return?

The series doesn't address her death and (possible) resurrection. The Marvel Chronology Project places it before her first appearance in Daredevil #168.

This image is by Kane not Starlin and has nothing to do with the Magus saga. The cover of Strange Tales #178 or Warlock #9 or 10 would be more appropriate.
