  1. Black Canary as a rock star has been done before, it’s called Dazzler.

  2. I think you’d like the Manhunter in JL United. He cares for a child Ultra Multi-Alien while everyone including the Legion wants to destroy it.

  3. Great podcast.

    The only really good major book you guys glossed over was Squadron Sinister. I kind of feel like it’s emulating DC’s Crime Syndicate (with of course Hyperion and the rest of the Supreme Power crew back to being evil). But the art was really great and it feels like it might be one of the more interesting Secret Wars tie-ins… especially with the twist at the end.

    I would’ve loved to hear what you guys think about it.

    Great show nonetheless.

    • Also Midnighter. The entire new 52 run of “Stormwatch/The Authority” has been terrible. This book actually felt closer to what they used to be, it’s just disappointing that it’s ONLY Midnighter, but still better than nothing.

  4. Hi Conor & Paul,
    Thanks for responding to my question about Low. I agree it ultimately may be more powerful collected together, but I still couldn’t imagine waiting to read it later while those beautiful covers are sitting on the shelves. Conor, keep up the good work on iFanboy. Paul, very much enjoying Panels. And didn’t get a chance to mention it in my question, but thanks to Mission Comics & Art for being such a great comics shop and turning me on to so much great stuff. –Nick in SF

  5. Good Morning Metropolis!
