This is exactly what I wanted in the Krakoa era -- smartly defined characters bouncing in unpredictable but logical ways against the concept.

On Krakoa, Fabian Cortez and the Quiet Council discuss the rules of murder. But in space, the murders have already begun...and the killer has a connection to Cortez he'd never suspect. The color may be gold...but this, my friends...is pure giallo...

I can just buy -- barely -- the reasoning behind an imaginary friend like Donald Blake turning into an all-powerful god-killer. But I'm not thrilled with it. I'm of two minds about Don's seeming inability to kill anybody with a name and a backstory: I'd hate to lose, say, Volstagg to this arc, but the obvious plot armor around beloved characters just undercuts Donny's already-tenuous menace.

Thor #10

THE DARK PRISON OF DONALD BLAKE!
For years Doctor Donald Blake has wandered a land far from Midgard, the place he once thought home. Now he has returned to the Ten Realms - but it is not the place it was, nor he the man who once shared a body with a god. New terrors await in what is perhaps Donny Cates' darkest story yet!

As a satirist obviously targeting the most recent past president, Russell is a little overaggressive and simplistic here in how he portrays Lex's total control of the media. But as a Superman story in the Silver Age tradition, this book shines. It both takes advantage of the future setting as well as DC's publication history to deliver a classic that is easily one of Future State's best offerings.

“Tramps and hobos are commonly lumped together, but see themselves as sharply differentiated. A hobo or bo is simply a migratory laborer; he may take some longish holidays, but sooner or later he returns to work. A tramp never works if it can be avoided; he simply travels.”
