    May 12, 2012 10:47 pm A typically well-written, well-informed review. Great work, Josh. I'm now even more excited to read this one, and to hear the boys discuss it on a future show. Josh, you referred to [i]Supergods[/i] as a "novel." Are you implying that Morrison's memoir-slash-critical analysis of the superhero is in fact a work of [i]fiction?[/i] Damn. Now THAT'S meta.
    June 29, 2011 8:05 pm Lately, I've tried a lot of series with intriguing premises, but unimaginative execution.

    This is not one of those series.  It's been excellent!

    I'm very glad I gave this book a chance.  The second issue actually built on the first in plot and characterization.  And the art is a perfect complement to the story.
    June 20, 2011 9:43 pm #1 was my POTW, and this one has an even more impressive list of creators.  Giddy!
    June 20, 2011 9:39 pm Best. Ongoing. Series.

    June 7, 2011 9:20 am <i>"Do not taunt Infinity Gauntlet."</i>  Priceless!

    I loved that the Boxing Glove Arrrow made the list, but I'd give the GL ring the edge, because you can use it to make both a boxing glove <i>and</i> a catcher's mitt.  Respect.
    May 23, 2011 10:44 pm This title is a major mindf**k -- and I mean that in the best possible way.  Buy it!
    May 23, 2011 10:42 pm Intriguing concept, the first issue was solid -- I'm in for the series.
    May 2, 2011 6:58 pm @Abjekt:  Seconded.  I think it's the constantly rotating cast and inconsistent art that are preventing this series from really grabbing me.  I love a lot of these B-listers, but they don't get enough play to keep me coming back.

    If a Cap foe is "kicking" someone, it can only be... BATROC ZE LEAPAIR!
    May 2, 2011 6:49 pm Best arc since last year's Catman story, IMO.  Simone is killing it (sorry, Ron).
    May 2, 2011 6:47 pm Another great Proof arc ends.  I hope it won't be too long until we get more.

    About that cover:  Is Proof... floating?  What the what?
