An emotional issue this time with Bizarro in dire straights and Solomon Grundy on the loose.

Someone mysterious has let Solomon Grundy out and needs him to wreak havoc, the one thing Grundy is especially good at and he heads to the local fair and starts destroying it. Whether on purpose or not Grundy picked a place very close to the Outlaws and although worrying about Bizarro they are not going to rest and let Grundy smash the place up.

Bizarro is in a bad bad way, Ma Gunn is doing what she can but it’s not exactly her area of expertise and when Bizarro decides that his friends need him there is very little she can do to stop him going. Bizarro is right his friends do need him, they are struggling against Grundy and Bizarro saves the day but at what cost??

Love Bizarro being a proper hero in this story, saving his friends regardless of the consequences to himself. Not going to say more about the outcome only that it really is a work of art, properly moved me and with a little surprise visitor appearing I wonder where it is going to go now.

A 34 year old manchild from Scotland, bravely fighting the on going war between a love of comics and space to keep them. Boxes are filling and thanks to the digital age we live in so is the harddrive! I love finding a new comic to obsess over and rediscovering old comics to immerse myself in from the very first issue. A healthy mix of the seven dwarves of geekdom all wrapped up in one kilted bundle of amusement
