Fourth World Vol.3

That's 3 volumes of the Fourth World down, with one to go (apparently I neglected to review the previous one), and my love for these stories has not faded in the least. The dialog is still hokey, the stories are still tainted by editorial mandates (such as launching a Deadman revival in the Forever People), and Jimmy Olsen is still an oddly physical character (he actually punches out a robot this time around), but none of that matters.

These stories are pure in a way that few can ever hope to be. It's just a shame that the characters have more or less languished (and are now being killed off) every since.
