This time out, I'm the Gun is pleased to participate with some other brave bloggers & podcasters in a celebration -erm- ACKNOWLEDGEMENT of DC Comics' landmark(?) 1993 x-over event running through that year's Annuals - Bloodlines!
Not looked back upon with much fondness, among Bloodlines most heinous crimes against comics seems to be the introduction of a rafter of new turkeys cut from the same cloth as many other 'extreme' 90s characters from companies such as Marvel & Image. But was this the worst of Bloodlines' legacy? I wanted to re-visit a couple of chapters in this saga to see if they held up - held up to the level of suckiness I remember - would I be pleasantly surprised?
In this episode I'll be taking a look at the Annual that started it all - Lobo Annual #1!
Check out some images from the issue below, previous I'm the Guns on iTunes, and more coverage of Bloodlines: Best Event Ever at these fine sites:
