DC Universe Legacies #1

* Not only did Holyoke publish a character who obviously started at DC, they had other characters with eerily familiar names: The Blue Beetle, Ragman, Catman and Kitten, Golden Archer, and Mr. Miracle. Its almost like Holyoke was publishing a parallel Earth version of DCs past and future characters.

Legion of Super-Heroes (2004) #38

Shawn: So am I. As weve examined this initial story, Ive come to realize just how much is packed into these two issues. I initially found an inept Garth and a crushing bureaucracy to be clichd aspects, but youve discussed several ways these elements could be deepened and expanded upon. I think Shooter is more than capable of doing that and much more besides. Perhaps hes quite wise to start off his run with solid-if-somewhat-conventional plot threads as a basis that will be expanded in the months to come.
