Living proof that despite while the whole thing was written by Kingdom Come co-creator Mark Waid, the two bookends were a dog's breakfast compared to the one-shots in between - Offspring, Planet Krypton and Kid Flash especially.
Here Waid and Quitely pull off a massive father/son moment that serves as a reaffirming moment in the lives of two great malleable characters.
While similar beats would later be explored in writer Joe Kelly's run on JLA, everytime I look at this splash I hear a little 'awww' a lot of 'wow' and my fingers cross that Frank will touch the real Plas again - in one reality or another.
