    August 18, 2013 12:04 pm These are really lovely. Image is putting out so many good books right now. On my last pre-order the majority of the books were Image. I don't think that has ever happened to me before.
    July 5, 2013 6:51 pm This was really great. I love things set in old TV and Radio days, there's so much great drama to play with in live broadcast. The pacing in this issue was stellar. The art and story worked very well together, this comic is two people who are showing us how very capable they are. I am really glad I picked this up. Oh, nice review as well, I am looking forward to the podcast!
    June 14, 2013 11:00 pm Paul, even when I don't agree 100%, I really enjoy your reviews. The last couple of sentences of this one in particular really hit home with me. Kudos.
    May 28, 2013 1:28 pm God, all those New Frontier covers are just gorgeous.
    May 24, 2013 1:49 pm Ryan Kelly is such an underrated talent. Everything looks great, good week!
    May 22, 2013 11:52 am Yeah, I think this will be the last trailer or preview that I watch. Really don't need any more than that, actually kind of wish I didn't see this...

    April 11, 2013 12:33 pm This was quite nice. Particularly this bit, which really is a great question: "Kelly: Lets think about how it works in other books. Setting aside the baby-in-peril aspect because that’s a totally different can of worms and not going away soon… How do they make it work? How can a strong female character make a dumb choice and still be strong." While I dropped Batgirl due to my general apathy towards the plot, I really enjoyed the way Gail writes Batgirl. Barbara is always shown as character who has physical strength and a sharp mind, but she still makes poor decisions. She would occasionally get herself in trouble in either her personal life or as a superhero. Sometimes she would find a clever way out, or fallback on her supporting cast(her roommate or someone from the bat family), but sometimes she just plain lost. Her faults never made her seem weak, as a reader I respected her for acknowledging her mistakes, and making an effort to fix the problem(that is strength!) ...I may have started babbling there, but yeah, nice article. Kudos!
    April 4, 2013 7:06 pm While this wasn't as strong as the last two episodes(the best of the series so far, IMO), it was a solid episode. I quite enjoyed the twist at the end, and found it to be genuinely surprising. I have also found that while I didn't care for the "soap opera" elements when the show started, that I am now completely sucked in. I think the writing staff has been very consistent with the portrayals of each character, and that has helped immensely.....Or maybe I've just stuck around long enough to become addicted, who knows. Either way, I am glad that this show exists.
    April 1, 2013 6:27 pm I'm kind of in love with that Plastic Man sketch. Really great personality.
