It's Not About The Answers: Behind The Mask Of Vic Sage, pt 9

O'Neil: Vic the Seeker (pt 5)

I've worn myself out doing little dances over the announcement for Question #37, so I figured I'd celebrate another way, especially since it's been a month and a half since my last post in this series.

We're going through Question v1 #'s 13 & 14 today, a two-parter that runs Vic's endurance, conviction, martial training and detective skills through the gauntlet as he takes on a elite special forces unit gone rogue. I was originally going to put #15 in this post as well, but after re-reading it I'm still not quite sure of my take on it, and it's subject matter is heavy enough that it should be analyzed on its own.

It's Not About The Answers: Behind The Mask Of Vic Sage, pt 7

O'Neil: Vic the Seeker (pt 3)
Tot's Reckoning

There comes a time in every title's life where the supporting characters must take center-stage and play the largest role in a story-arc's major plot while the star runs around around looking silly and ineffectual.

O'Neil: Vic the Seeker (pt 1)
featuring the Post-Crisis debuts of Tot, Lady Shiva and Richard Dragon!

When last we left our hero, he was brought up on charges by the Cool Quota Cops. In the two months between his appearance in Blue Beetle and the debut of his very first self-titled series, he was found by a jury of his super-cool peers guilty of hubris in the first-degree.
The sentence, carried out February 1987 by Dennis O'Neil and Denys Cowan...

Iran: Some History from Ennis & Moore
I've been watching the events in Iran--what one can find out through the web, because the networks are blind--and was reminded of some work by Garth Ennis and Alan Moore that, at least in scraps, helps give a little bit of context to our historical place in this whole mess.

I came across this years ago on holiday in France, and only just found it again whilst spelunking through several strata of old boxes in my flat.
