July 27, 2015 11:54 am I haven't listened to the show yet, but I totally agree with Prez making the top pick. Two issues in, and I'm having more fun with this book than any other book I can remember over the last few years.
March 3, 2014 12:52 pm Wow, that's a log of DC on the show, compared to the last six months or so. I haven't listened yet, but now I'm intrigued to see what's up.
August 26, 2013 1:24 pm A story so bad, I stopped reading Spider-Man and have still yet to come back around. Granted, I was never a huge Spider-Man to begin with, but I enjoyed the heck out of JMS' run up to this point.
August 19, 2013 2:16 pm Well we know the solicits are wrong and Asrar's last issue was #21. I wonder who we'll get this time. I wouldn't be upset if Diogenes Neves was the new penciller. I thought he did an admirable job of presenting a complimentary style to the one that Asrar has established for this title.
July 23, 2013 8:03 pm Definitely check this out. This is the most fun I've had with a new wave 52 title since Earth 2.
July 22, 2013 9:47 am ...and Wolverine's quest to out-title Batman continues apace! I love the old Nightcrawler, but alas, Marvel's pricing policy will keep me away. Ah well, I'll just have to enjoy it by osmosis through everyone else's comments.
July 18, 2013 7:57 am So Mahmud Asrar confirmed that issue #20 was his last issue, so that's a bummer. But when you think about it...18 out of 21 issues drawn by him is a quite a feat for any artist these days, much less one done in the ever-increasingly hostile environment of the new 52. That right there makes Supergirl one of the standout titles of the new 52, along with Wonder Woman and All-Star Western. I do wonder if Diogenes Neves is the permanent replacement, or just filling in. I've enjoyed his run, as while his style is not aping Asrar, it is complimentary to it. A nice transition. That being said, I'm definitely ready for a new story that doesn't deal with rebuilding Krypton. Hopefully they have one in the works sooner or later.
July 11, 2013 1:19 pm 100% agree about the art looking like a Mad Magazine spoof. I thought the exact same thing.
July 11, 2013 7:27 am I really like what Johns has been doing with the Secret Society. This issue definitely demonstrated how deep the conspiracy goes, and how little the Justice Leagues are prepared for it. Makes me excited about Forever Evil coming up.
July 8, 2013 1:46 pm My favorite part of the iFlashback feature is seeing where Chuck Austen is going to pop up this week. I had no idea that the man who convinced me to give up on my assembling continuous runs of Avengers and X-Men wrote so many other books!
