  1. There was an “I got this” in Batgirl number 3 this week

  2. Waited til I read Saga before listening to this podcast. Saga is my favorite book on the market right now. However, I have been feeling that BKV is writing shock value for sake of shock value. Opening the book with Taints and little things like the “Fucking HArdly” line in the part where they ask how all these races are helping each other. It almost feels forced now. Its not that im a prude, its just not adding to the story outside of “How can we go crazy this month and add something that most people would deem offensive”. To give an analogy, I am a big hip hop fan, but when a rapper uses too much “Fucks” and “Pussys” I write them off as terrible writers in this craft. I guess I’m getting to, I don’t feel like it adds to the overall story. The story isnt better by adding all the crude stuff every issue. Its great on its own merit. Also, I miss Gus, I want an issue where Gus messes up a ton of bad guys.

  3. Just to note that Marta in this months Astro City is actually a returning character from way back in #4 of the first Astro City mini-series (1995) where she got a job outside of Shadow Hill but then decides to move back – as she refers to in this issue.
