The OJ Flow Show
by Rev. OJ Flow
George Perez is the man who got me to read comic books. Oh, sure, by 1981, I had plenty of copies of Batman, Detective
Comics, Incredible Hulk, and Justice League
of America lying around my room (a fairly spotless room,
even back then). But in third grade, I was into superheroes
in general, and any medium available at the time could satiate
my tastes. As the 1970s came to a close, there were plenty
of ways for me to get my "heroes in tights" fix...
It's stunning to think that we are now
halfway through the pairing of the Avengers and the Justice League,
something that was supposed to be part of comic book legend twenty
years ago. This is the Beach Boys' Smile album, for those in
the know. It was going to take a NLCS Game 6 clusterf*** of biblical
proportions to screw this story up now and I don't see that happening.
There has been too much care and love put into this book, and it shows
in every beautiful page. If this is truly George Perez's final
statement on the Marvel and DC universes, all I can say is WELL SAID.
