I loved this series when it came out. Another one I'd love to have in a complete run. But, then, I've always liked the GA characters.

A great character who really should still be around, although I quite liked his dramatic death plunge a few years ago. And Sandman Mystery Theatre was one of the best books of the 90s! I must dig it out for a re-read some time...

From JSA Secret Files #1 (1999)








I wonder how many people reading that these days would be asking "What's a fax?"

No! No, it did not! It was...uh...sort of a couple of years back. Yeah, that's right. A couple of years back. When I was...30...

Sorry, dude, but that was back in 1999.

But...that can't be right. That would mean I'm getting old... pale

Oh, crap. I'm not 30 anymore, am I?

By the way, next year will be the 80th Anniversary for Wes.
(Wonder if he'll have returned to DC continuity by then?)

I think he may already have done so. The WWII versions of Wes and Sandy both cropped up in the recent limited series Bug: the Adventures of Forager (which also seemed to indicate, BTW, that Forager's death in Cosmic Odyssey was still in continuity).

The thing about Bug: the Adventures of Forager, as well as books like Gerard Ways' Doom Patrol, is that they're part of the Young Animal line, an imprint of DC Comics, so they may not be. . . exactly in continuity the way that Superman, Batman, Justice League, etc. are. Whether other non-Young Animal comic books include things like what happens in, say, Cave Carson Has a Cybernetic Eye, may be questionable.
(Unless, of course, you're talking about somebody like Grant Morrison, . . .)

Well, both the God of Superheroes and his nemesis Danny the Brick recently appeared in Doom Patrol and Justice League of America at around the same time, in what seemed to be a kind of sneaky under the radar tie-in...
