Egg Fu Disturbia

"Egg Fu Disturbia" from Checkmate vol.2 #15 (DC, 2007) by Greg Rucka, Judd Winick, Joe Bennett and Jack Jadson
While I didn't read the original series, I did enjoy the second, which featured a mix of characters from Suicide Squad, the JLI, the JSA, and new characters besides, many named after historical DC stars like Cinnamon and Gravedigger. The chess metaphor was pretty well used as well, and the idea of maintaining a balance both in the team and out between humans and metahumans was an interesting one. Where else could I get my fix of Amanda Waller, Mister Terrific, Fire, ANYONE named Mademoiselle Marie, and wait... Egg Fu? Awesome! Oh, and Snapper Carr died in this. Say thank you to Mr. Rucka, everyone.*

*If you're the one Snapper fan I keep hearing about, thank him sarcastically.

  1. Anything with the demise of Snapper Carr has my vote! Man, I just hate Snapper Carr!

    But Egg Fu was a ton of fun.
