I will tell you, over at the DC side of Stately Beat Manor, nothing has been debated more furiously than who is under the mask of Leviathan. We all have our theories, from Max Lord (mine) to the Charlton Heroes (Cori’s) to Lois Lane (Louie’s) to Green Arrow (which I think was Zack’s last pick?). Needless to say, it’s a wide ranging list and one we’ve actually taken to Brian Michael Bendis himself, but finally answers are coming as Event Leviathan #5 promises to end these debates once and for all and reveal just who has been orchestrating all of these attacks on DC’s clandestine organizations.
Below, we’ve got an exclusive preview of the first three pages of this week’s issue, which literally feels like it’s talking directly to this rabble-rousing crew that continually (lovingly) argues back and forth, and has even gone as far as to try and make out what’s under the redacted covers of each issue. If I knew these things weren’t written well in advance, I might actually believe that. Still it’s hard not to get a little thrill at this opening montage of suspects, and even a shoutout to Louie’s long-held “it’s been Lois all along” theory.
With Event Leviathan, Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev have weaved a fascinating rhythm on this event, and it’s a comic that I think will demand a re-read to see how all the puzzle pieces were put into place. I know that’s next on the agenda for me, anyway. But take a look at this exclusive preview below, and give us your best guess for the identity of Leviathan before Wednesday, when Event Leviathan #5 hits shelves.
From the Eisner Award-winning team of writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Alex Maleev, it’s the reveal of the biggest mystery of the summer. Who is Leviathan? And what is their true goal? You’re going to find out here! Plus, Lois Lane had a whole other team working this story the entire time, and-oh man!-someone found something!
