'Omega Men' Goes Deep Into DC Lore In Its Latest Issue
There are a lot of really good reasons to read Tom King and Barnaby Bagenda's Omega Men. There's the compelling story that blends political intrigue and sci-fi action, the incredible technique that goes into building the story on the nine-panel grid, and even the fun of witnessing its miraculous resurrection from nearly being canceled halfway through its first arc. Or, if you're a certain type of reader, you might just be into it for its references to obscure '70s Superman comic backup stories. For me, those are all equally appealing, so I was pretty excited to see that the latest issue, this week's Omega Men #8, included a reference to Stellarium, something that definitely falls under that last heading. But just what is that stuff?
