Howdy y’all and welcome to the next installment of a Loose Canon Discussion! These discussions will focus primarily on self contained stories in the DC world (with a few exceptions now and then). For the busy and the slackers . Every installment will give you a minimum of 2 weeks to tackle the story at hand and of course you can jump in whenever you finish.
As we make our way into 2020, we say goodbye to the old and head towards a New Frontier with our beloved DC heroes with this classic story written and illustrated by the late and great Darwyn Cooke. A group of Losers are sent to rescue a German scientist on a mysterious Island following the end of the second world war. Soon the Government will declared a war on Vigilantes. The JSA will be disbanded, a hero will fall to their death, and Superman & Wonder Woman will agreed to work for the Government. The Batman of Gotham will be labeled a criminal whom Superman has failed to bring in, the suicide squad is now the task force X, and the threat of Communism will reach an all time high following the end of the Korean War. This is were our story begins as the Centre nears. Join your favorite DC heroes as they usher in a new frontier.
