I picked up the last installment of Jeph Loeb and Michael Turner's Supergirl from Krypton series. Awesome ending to an awesome run by this combo. Supes opens a can of you know what on Darkseid after apparently obliterating Supergirl with his Omega Beams. Superman takes big D to the Sun (literally) and beats him. He then takes him to the "Source Wall" and leaves him there, trapped. (What is the Source Wall? I don't know. There is a brief explanation in the book, and those of you who have been Superman readers for a long time might know.)
I won't tell you the whole story as not to reveal the ending for anyone who wants to read this issue, but Loeb wrote in a part in the story where all the major DC teams come together, such as the JLA, JSA, Outsiders, and so forth. Kind of corny, but it does the trick. The real thing to note here is Turner's vision of these characters, especially the Outsiders. Great art.
DC Comics. Mr. Loeb. Mr. Turner. How about a run on the Outsiders? Just something to think about.
