This Week: Forever Evil, Impulse vs. the Joker (sort of)

Forever Evil #2 starring Johnny Quick, Ultraman and Superwoman

Forever Evil #2 is out this week, with a cover focusing on the Crime Syndicate’s evil Johnny Quick and the Teen Titans’ attempt to fight back now that the villains have taken over the world. It doesn’t look like that goes too well for the Titans.

Earth 2 #16 is out as well, closing out the war against Steppenwolf and the Hunger Dogs and revealing the identity of Brutal.

And in digital re-releases at ComiXology:

Impulse #79. This was a tie-in to the “Joker’s Last Laugh” event in which Joker thought he was dying, so he used a drug to transform villains all over the DCU into insane, smiling, “Jokerized” versions of themselves. Here, it’s an old foe of Max Mercury called Dr. Ether.
