I re-read Eclipso #10 the other day.  This was the series that followed “The Darkness Within”, which ran through 1992’s annuals.  It’s a stand-alone issue.  Darkseid visits Eclipso in his fortress on the moon, where they engage in a game of chess while bragging about their evil deeds.  Eclipso claims that he caused the Biblical flood, and recounts his re-awakening in the modern world.  Darkseid also recounts two terrible tales.  The second one is how he killed his mother, but the first one is worse.  As it goes, Darkseid, in his younger days, before his nature was widely known, used to sneak over to New Genesis.  On one visit, he witnessed an innocent child blissfully playing with his pets, a cat and a bird.  Darkseid tricks the boy into believing that the cat has eaten the bird.  The boy’s heart is broken.  Darkseid then tells the boy that justice demands the cat pay for its crime.  So the boy dutifully kills his pet cat.  Just after that horrible deed is done, the bird returns.  Now the boy is completely distraught.  He blames the bird for making him think he was dead, and therefore making it necessary that he execute his cat.  He snaps and kills his bird, too.  The boy left New Genesis after that, and became Desaad.  Darkseid brags that corrupting an innocent heart is far more impressive than destroying whole worlds.  It’s chilling, and heartbreaking.  It also has the ring of mythology.  There’s something insightful about the fact that Darkseid appeals to the boy’s sense of justice to corrupt him.  
You can find this one in the cheap bins.  I haven’t read any other installments of this series in years, but this one is quite effective.

I’m liking the look of this new take on Batgirl.  It’s so good to see DC go with a lighter tone.
