Who remembers “The Janus Directive”? If you don’t, it was an 11-part crossover that ran through five DC comics back in mid-1989 (Checkmate, Suicide Squad, Manhunter, Captain Atom, and Firestorm). It wasn’t a marquee crossover, but was entertaining for those reading the espionage comics at the time. Personally, I was a big fan of Suicide Squad and Manhunter! The Elemental Firestorm played a minor role in this crossover and was primarily included because John Ostrander (the writer of Firestorm at the time) was directing this crossover.
I don’t have a lot of recollections of the crossover. I should probably dig it out of my collection and re-read it. Anyone remember it well?
Below you’ll see a house ad promoting the crossover. I found this ad over on the phenomenal DC in the 80s Tumblr! Be sure to check out that site, you won’t regret it!
