The 52 Book Club: Week Thirty-Eight

Hello everyone and welcome to the 52 Book Club, where each week we’re reading an issue of the critically acclaimed series to celebrate it’s 15th anniversary!

This week we’ll be reading issue #38, written by the Usual Suspects of Geoff Johns, Mark Waid, Greg Rucka and Grant Morrison, with art breakdowns by Keith Giffen and finishes by Joe Bennett. This issue also has a back-up Secret Origins tale of Red Tornado written by Mark Waid and drawn by Phil Jimenez.

The Question and Renee Montoya’s journey takes another turn, one that shapes and changes Renee’s very future in the DC Universe. A return to Oolong Island, where the mad scientists reveal their Four Horsemen!

I enjoy the appearance again of the Mad Scientists on Oolong Island. The one ordering 300 thermometers because he wasn’t feeling too well thanks to Dr Death suggesting that the scientist try crack cocaine was entertaining. Dr Magnus off his meds now saying if nobody else wants them he’ll take the 300 thermometers was equally fun.

I was hoping Renee would become the Question this time around, oh well.
