It’s Summer Blockbuster Season in the Ziggurat!
In the Time Before Time, Marvel and DC created a type of event so massive it could not be contained within the pages of normal comic issues. Thus the Summer Annual Crossover was born! Atlantis attacked, the High Evolutionary warred, and the Bloodlines yielded New Blood! Join us as we explore these larger-than-life events in eight SUMMER ANNUAL BACK ISSUE COMIC REVIEWS in this action-packed episode. Another force that can’t be contained is THN’s “Buy It,” “Skim It,” or “Leave It” rating system, which has probably gone on a little too long at this point. But enough prattle…IT’S SUMMER ANNUAL REVIEW TIME IN THE ZIGGURAT!
