You may remember me recommending this recently in the 'TBU After Christmas List'. Well I was one of the people who rushed out with their Christmas money to buy it and I have to say, it's the best purchase I've made this year!
Looking back, I'm aware that I didn't really explain what the book is; frankly, I didn't know. What I did know, however, is that it looked cool- and it does! It's just a shame that it's too big to fit on any of my shelves…

Nevertheless, written by Geoff Johns and pencilled by Andy Kubert, the issue opens up in Fawcett City with the six kids who together form 'Captain Thunder' (The Flashpoint Universe's take on 'Captain Marvel) as well as…
