DC COSMIC CARDS – COSMIC ODYSSEY

Another Friday, another batch of scans from the DC Cosmic Cards set.

Once again we are delving into the Great Battles section of the series and looking at a largely forgotten (with a few exceptions) yet incredibly important event (at least in the Pre-New 52 timeline) from 1988.  Cosmic Odyssey was four issue mini-series written by Jim Starlin with art by Mike Mignola.  It was a Prestige Format series and dealt with a small number of heroes fighting against Darkseid and manifestations of the Anti-Life Equation.  Look at it like Final Crisis except smaller, with a more linear narrative style and minus all of the Monitors.  I’m very lukewarm when it comes to this story but it did have a ripple effect with some characters, especially John Stewart, a.k.a. Green Lantern.  So while it isn’t an Invasion or Crisis on Infinite Earths level event it was important enough to be considered a Great Battle.

Or maybe they needed something to fill three more entries.  Either way here are the cards.

More to follow…
