  • Does he still count as Cosmic Albert Einstein when the next writer to try to straighten out the scramble decides that he was really a Guardian of the Universe?

    As soon as I saw those colors – or rather, felt them burning into my eyes – I knew it was an issue of DC Challenge.

  • Mr Wesley says:

    I don’t care who you are, DC Challenge was awesome. If this new DC Comics Presents line is going to fly, this is the kind of project they should be reprinting.

  • Roger Green says:

    OK, we both mentioned Albert Einstein in our blogs today; that’s just plain weird. Or scary.

  • Ron Hogan says:

    Like Old Bull Lee, I had my childhood memories snapped into focus by those sharp, sharp colors.

    The DC Challenge was kinda the last hurrah of the Silver Age, in a way, bless it.

    I have every issue of this thing, bagged and boarded. Despite several attempts, I’ve never even bent the covers on the last half of the series. I just can’t get through. Damn it, now I feel like trying again. Will I ever learn? Signs point to “no.”

    Man, I’d love to see another one of these. As long as they followed a strict no decapitations/dismemberments rule, at any rate. I’d love to see what sort of hot bag of crazy Gail Simone might pass to Brian Azzarello.

    Time Portals are sure way to win me over. I want it!

  • CW says:

    Oh wow, it’s the Anti-Matter Man from Justice League of America #47! now I have a reason to finally complete this series … :)

    Is that Jimmy Olsen, the young man who was once a giant turtle, giving attitude to Albert Einstein?

  • Bret says:

    Jimmy was MARCO POLO, and Nixon’s go-to man for Nixon when it came to black ops.

    He’s got a big history when it comes to the exchange of attitude, what I’m saying.

    Maggin sure did love Einstein
