Magog #11 - DC
Scott Kolins is completely in control of this title now . . story, art and covers. And I think he's doing an incredible job. Magog is now completely separated from the JSA. They've basically renounced his membership. And that's probably for the best. He's pretty much a loose cannon. He's mad about it all, but . . he just wants to get on with his life. Plus he's got all of this stuff he's got to sort out. Well . . with this issue . . things definitely don't get any easier. First of all, it appears that Lauren . . the girl that he was trying to teach how to defend herself, so that she could protect herself from her abusive husband . . appears to have been killed. And all signs seems to point towards Lloyd. Also, it appears that somebody is using and distributing Gog's wonder-tech. First we see a scientist that seems to have gone out of control at a research facility in Canada. When Gog, and the Flash, finally take him down, he has a device attached to his back. Magog gets the same feelings and sensations off of it that he did with Gog. And it's obviously a piece of his wonder-tech. And at the end of the story we see that someone else is using the enhancements in Opal City. 'In Gog's name, I come to liberate.' But . . liberate who? And from what? I don't know, but apparently it's the beginning of a revolution. This story arc is titled, Blown to Kingdom Come!. And this issue is it's first chapter. I think Scott is doing a great job. And he's really come a long way as a comic creator. I loved his Solomon Grundy mini-series, as I'm sure I'll love this story-arc. I can't wait to see where he takes this character.
