Sheep Might Fly: The Bromancers Episode 14

EPISODE FOURTEEN: The Intimate Thoughts of Miss Juniper Cresswell, cellist and committed Bromancers fangirl.

Finally it’s time for the housemates & the band to take a break and watch the finale of their favourite geeky show. Will shirts come off? Will ships be sunk? Who’s getting kissed?

Our favourite witchy rock band, Fake Geek Girl, are road-tripping to a magical music festival in a wi-fi free zone on the same weekend that the season finale of their favourite TV show drops. Can they avoid spoilers? Can Hebe, Holly, Juniper & Sage camp in tents for three days without murdering each other? Can coffee really fix EVERYTHING including missing band members, messy relationship drama and obsessive fan shenanigans?

Friendship is magic, but if you pile too much friendship on top of too much magic over one weekend, the results are bound to be explosive.

Justice League America 31: Crossed Wires (Oct 1989)

THE PACKAGING: We’re up to Volume Six of the JLI trades… and sadly the last of this series. I’m gonna be elbows deep in flimsies by next month. Trades kick in again in 1992, but until then we’ll be digging through my filing cabinet. This last JLI trade alternates between JLA & JLE (as does this blog) because of the Teasdale Imperative crossover that begins with this issue.

THE CREATIVE TEAM: Keith Giffen (Plot & Breakdowns), J.M. DeMatteis (Script), INTRODUCING ADAM HUGHES (Pencils), Joe Rubenstein (Inks), Gene D’Angelo (Colors), Andy Helfer (Editor) Kevin Dooley (Assistant Editor)

CROSSOVER ALERT: I forget what the actual plot of the Teasdale Imperative is, probably because I read these all in the wrong order originally, but also maybe because the interesting bits in this issue have nothing to do with the crossover.

It’s an excuse to do stuff across the JLA & JLE and means that we get some Sue, Catherine & Power Girl drawn by Hughes instead of Sears occasionally though so yay!

The Chief agrees finally, and sends Herb off to make the deal.
