After raising our glasses to the life and work of the recently-departed Dwayne McDuffie, we retreat to our corners and begin this week's tag-team tussles with Chris and Jason taking on the landmark Alien Legion series from Marvel/Epic, and King DAP and I traipsing across Hal Jordan's mental landscape in J. M. DeMatteis and Seth Fisher's awe-inspiring Green Lantern: Willworld! Plus, we have plenty of time left to discuss B.P.R.D.: Plague of Frogs and Hellboy, creators we allow an occasional "pass" (Walt Simonson, Neal Adams, Todd McFarlane, John Byrne, John Severin, Russ Heath, Tony DeZuniga, Sal and John Buscema, and more), Warriors of the Shadow Realm, Godland, First Wave, Richard Starking and Elephantmen, American Vampire, The Dark Tower, and much more!

The tag-team takedowns continue as Chris and I join forces on Dave Gibbons and John Higgins' Thunderbolt Jaxon from Wildstorm while King DAP and Jason share thoughts on Who is Jake Ellis? #1 out of Image! Plus, we have more than enough digital rope to hang ourselves on Bunn and Kindt's The Tooth, John Byrne's new policy on interviews and Next Men #2, Fraction and Larocca's Invincible Iron Man 500.1 and Aaron and Rivera's Wolverine 5.1 from Marvel, the Invincible Iron Man (not an) omnibus, Borders' bankruptcy, Curse of the Spawn and Clayton Crain, Luke McDonnell, Bill Reinhold and Magnus, Alien Legion from the late, lamented Epic imprint (part one), Mike Norton's Battlepug, Seamonster, Legion of Super-Heroes, and a whole lot more!
