Great recaps, gentlemen. I had to wait a while between issues #20 and #21 of The Fury of Firestorm while my uncle was putting another comic book care package together for me in the US. At the first read of #20, I was disappointed that Killer Frost and Firestorm did not confront each other in this issue. In fact, at the time I had thought that the Firestorm title had reached its peak (I suppose nowadays it would be referred to as "jumped the shark") with the first Firestorm Annual. Fortunately I would eventually be proven wrong.

And yes, Shag, Slipknot is indeed dead. He was brutally murdered by the Mark Richards version of the Tattooed Man in Titans v2 #31 (this was after Infinite Crisis was released), as revenge for Slipknot killing Richards' son. In fact, that was the last issue of Titans I had ever purchased because that grisly splash panel on page 18 was the final proof that this title was not really my idea of entertainment...

"Zuhm Yahk-ah-noo-ie"... At least I am not a grilled chicken dish anymore...

I was somewhat disappointed with the last issues of Aquaman. While I enjoyed most of the other issues of maelstrom I actually felt this one was lacking. To me it felt like they knew where they wanted to go but just weren't quite sure how to do it and it got away from them a little bit. Otherwise I enjoyed it.
