The editing of this book is...interesting. Gold is the overall editor; Augustyn, his associate. Greenberger is the cover editor. Then, each individual story has its own editor, as indicated. One assumes that the trials of getting a 52-page book out on a weekly schedule would have been simply too overwhelming for just one editor, who also probably had other editing chores elsewhere.
Action enters its one-year experiment in weekly publication--the only real precedent in DC Comics history for its 2006 series, 52.
Synopsis: Freedom of Speech is one thing; literally taking a City Council hostage, though, that's probably where the Committee for Social Change crossed the line. But then, so did Wild Dog when he showed up to extricate the council members--and ended up killing some of the criminals instead of wasting taxpayer money on a trial.
Synopsis: At a 5-year reunion of the original Secret Six (see the 60s miniseries, Secret Six), Mockingbird invites new members to form a new Secret Six.
Notes: For serious DC chronologists, the fact that this is ostensibly the 5-year reunion of the Secret Six gives a clue as to the post-Crisis interpretation of the events depicted in the pre-Crisis 1968 miniseries.
Synopsis: How inconvenient would it be if a mere mortal could see the Deadman? Very--especially if that person is a CIA section chief and the former Boston Brand has just stopped a CIA drugs-for-guns operation.
Notes: And they say the dead have bad timing. But here, right in the midst of the real life Iran-Contra scandal, comes this fascinating "DC morality play".
