The End of an Era

I thought I could handle it. I thought I could get passed it, but I can’t. I tried, but I just can’t.

Marcus To, one of my favorite artists…is a Canuck fan.


As a hockey-loving New Jersey Devils’ fan whose man Martin was replaced by Roberto Longo during the 2010 Olympics, I don’t know if I can—hey, is that RR #23? Ooh, such pretty pictures. What was I saying…?

False Dawn #17: Time Constraints

False Dawn #17: Out of the Pan
Part Three of Five: Time Constraints
Short Story Edition
Devin Leigh Michaels

I’ve been to Savannah. I’ve puked right over there!

“So, if you’re Destiny, is there a Fate, too? How ‘bout Old Man Time?” I challenge.

Kainoa looks at me with twin irises of electric blue, shrugging. “My grandfather is pretty old. He might qualify.”

I blink. “Dude, come on. There is no way you can get me to believe we’re in 1860s Georgia. I mean, seriously. Look around—how is any of this—”

“You! GIRL!” a soldier upon a horse shouts. “Your worth has reached its end.”

“Do what you must, General Sherman,” replies Casia, “but please, spare my brother.”


I turn to the gathering of generals and high-ranking soldiers of the Union Army before our porch. In the middle of the pack stands a young girl, perhaps fifteen at the most, with long fiery hair pulled back in a braid and a homemaker’s dress. Her chin is raised to defy, and God, if I don’t know that expression of haughty brilliance.

Then I see the man in chains on the ground. He’s older than Casia by a handful of years and by the looks of it, has been beaten from Atlanta to Savannah. His farmer’s shirt appears to have been washed in blood and his face attacked by fists and clubs. He still manages to speak, snatching her hand.

“No…we are in this…together.”

“Lance?” I murmur.

“You know them?” Jayden asks.

“Of course he does,” Rio answers. “He’s immortal.”

If you know the power to stop a loved one's pain exists, would you use it? Ral's tempted. Of course, it lands him in Project: Avatar's detention, which isn't like clapping erasers or brooming the classroom floor.

“Not everyone is going to survive.”

Warning: Spoilers All Around, including Flashpoint and Batman Inc.

“Not everyone is going to survive.”

Or so Bruce Wayne decreed in the most recent issue of Batman Incorporated. That small fact has been known for about eight months now since Grant Morrison had his first interview about the new comic, but the question still remains: just who isn’t coming back for season three (other than Mr. Morrison)?

Let’s talk this out.
