The 52 Book Club: Week Forty-Three

Hello and welcome to the 52 Book Club, where each week we read an issue of the acclaimed series to celebrate its 15th anniversary!

This week we’ll be reading issue #43, written by Grant Morrison, Mark Waid, Geoff Johns, and Greg Rucka, with art breakdowns by Keith Giffen and finishes by Dan Jurgens. This issue also features a Secret Origins back-up written by Mark Waid and drawn by Ethan Van Sciver.

A family feud rocks the Rock of Eternity as the Marvel and Black Marvel families gather to discuss Osiris’s actions against the Suicide Squad. Also in Week 43, a hero—and villain—return, and the Fourth Horseman stands revealed!
