keith giffen is the f’ing man!

DC’s Retroactive titles have been a failed experiment (and that’s putting it kindly). The attempt at telling tales from the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s with writers and artists who worked on those characters during that time period has delivered some of the most disappointing and awful tales the publisher has put out this year.

I love this comic. Other than one complaint (which I’ll get to in a second) I’m totally on board for Keith Giffen‘s tale. Maxwell Lord has made the world forget his existence.

Keith Giffen writing a Justice League comic? I’ve got two words: Hell and Yeah! For those unfamiliar with the past of Maxwell Lord the comic does a fair job of giving you a primer without getting bogged down. I’m also happy to see Captain Atom and Fire and Ice getting some comic love again. It also asks, rather than ignore, the obvious question – Why is Maxwell Lord back? Spoilers after the jump.
