Other necromancers who had plans for their deaths:
Helixa had a resurrection trick she used on a few occasions.
Adrak Bulgak and Jacob had spell wards in place to protect themselves. Rilian appears to be using similar magic, only his body isn't in stasis. It disintegrated.
I picked up new comic books yesterday at my local comic shop, and I have to say that I am now definitely done with superhero comics from the "big two." I've been saying that for awhile now, but I was clinging to hope with a few titles. But as those storylines came to their conclusions, I found myself less and less interested in what happened next. Why get invested when it could all just be rebooted in a year? So, screw it. I still love superheroes, but not the mainstream comics any more.
Comic books I still enjoy:
- Atomic Robo
- Blacksad (magnificent graphic novels, if you can find copies of them)
That's all from me for now.
Rock on, and have a nice weekend!
