A DC Face-Off, Angel Power: Worlds of Conflict, Magic, Psychology


Szadkowski, Joseph, The Washington Times (Washington, DC)


Remember the rules. I have not seen these comic books, nor do I own stock in any of their parent companies. What follows is a synopsis of the book provided by Diamond Comic Book Distributors, a reason why you should buy the book, and a random thought pattern that may or may not be relevant. So here are:

THREE REASONS TO BUY A COMIC BOOK IN APRIL

1. Sergio Aragones Destroys DC, one shot (DC Comics, $3.50) - It's been tried. Time and again, beings of cosmic magnitude have attempted to shatter the DC Universe. Crisis on Infinite Earth, Zero Hour, DC vs. Marvel - always, Earth's greatest heroes have prevailed. But this time the universe faces a foe so twisted that total annihilation is the only conceivable outcome.

Only the legendary Sergio Aragones could succeed where every other would-be conqueror has failed. With the help of his co-creator on Groo, Mark Evanier, Mr. Aragones has set his sights on a few of his favorite DC characters. This is a 48-page, full-color offering. Why should I (the consumer) care? Sergio is one of the funniest and coolest cartoonists around. His work with Mad magazine is legendary. I'm confidant his destruction of the DC universe will also tip the chuckle meter.

The personal endorsement: Even though Sergio is one of the classier cartoonists out there, I'm deducting bonus points for his animated work with TV's George Schlatter and Ed McMahon. So what if Mr. Schlatter gave us "Laugh In"? One day, the deities of television history will make Mr. Schlatter answer for the likes of "Cher," "Real People" and those abysmal comedy-awards shows. Ed McMahon's "TV's Bloopers and Practical Jokes" drools for itself. Yuch. I hope his animated shorts on that show were lucrative for Mr. Aragones.

2. Serra Angel on the World of Magic: The Gathering, one shot (Acclaim Comics, $5.95) - Embark upon a dazzling adventure as a young wizard who wants it all summons just the being to give it to him . . . the Serra Angel. The quintessence of white magic, combined with the spirits of great warriors, Serra Angels are among the most powerful of the Magic: The Gathering pantheon. Written by best-selling novelist Margaret Weis (Dragonlance, Deathgate Cycle) and beautifully painted by Rebecca Guay, it has 47 pages of fully painted color with 10 pages of background material covering all aspects of the Serra Angel mythos. …
