    December 10, 2019 2:31 pm As I read that issue 6 of Up in the Sky, I kept thinking of that parable about the shepherd leaving the flock of 99 sheep to find the one that got lost. Needless to say, it resonated with me.
    August 19, 2019 10:51 am So Lois actually poked fun at Plastic Man being on the team when there's a guy with the same powers who's actually a master detective (Elongated Man). Made me happy as a DC Fan, maybe Ralph will be involved later on.
    July 15, 2019 9:52 am No joke, I also said "that's a halberd" along with Ned! The really weird thing is that my wife did not roll her eyes.
    June 3, 2019 8:53 am Anybody else notice that the Martian Delite ice cream in Clark's apartment had Oreo Chunks. Great little reference to Martian Manhunter being obsessed with Oreos in the old Justice League book. (although I thought they always called them chocos to avoid copyrights?)
    May 22, 2019 10:55 am I just listened to Episode to 682 where you mentioned a Porkins interest. You guys need to read this great Porkins/Biggs story that I recently read in Star Wars Age of Rebellion Special #1 that came out a month ago. It really made me wish there was still a Rogue Squadron ongoing book...
    April 29, 2019 11:10 am True, Didio is holding the company back. There are a lot of good books getting published right now and hopefully in the wake of Bendis' success they'll realize that character development should trump Didio's mandates about misery. I do feel that they are just spinning their wheels with Batman and the JL book that's stuck in multiverse origin mythology. HiC was a waste of a chance to tell a unique story and a violation of Wally's character.
    April 29, 2019 9:42 am well in Fantasia, I remember the the winged horses tucking their legs up against their body when soaring through the air. It's probably also that way in Hercules, haven't seen that movie in a while though. Maybe her horse is just a fan of the "airwalk" in skateboarding
    February 13, 2019 8:37 am Have you guys been reading any of the Age of X-Man books? What do you think of Magneto's fabulous fur-lined half-cape?
    January 7, 2019 10:08 am Totally agree about Alfred. We know he has fencing training, they could at least let him put up a fight. Drop some fencing knowledge and bolster the character, maybe he parries 4 with his hand as a reaction. I keep dreaming of an Alfred mini-series but I guess we recently had a back-up story to that effect.
    November 12, 2018 9:11 am I had to figure out my login again so I could weigh in on the Crises question! I own them all and most of the tie-ins and I think that the Infinite Crisis is the best for someone kind of new to DC. It's a great exploration of the personalities of the trinity (Clark, Diana, Bruce). It picked up threads from the Crisis on Infinite Earths, so it's helpful to know that for backstories of Alexander Luthor, Superboy Prime etc but not essential It also led right into 52 which is probably the best DC event. Final Crisis had tons of interesting concepts and you should definitely track down some of the tie-ins if you read this event. There's a Japanese superhero team that's really fun and a powerful one-shot about Martian Manhunter. So if you only read one, make it Infinite Crisis.
