This Week’s Comics!

Yeah, that’s right…This week has earned an exclamation point and a trip to a PG-13 movie.  It’s a jumbo-sized batch of comics this week!

  • ASTRO CITY #1 – Great call on DC’s part my making the first issue of this stellar series available for only a dollar.  If any of the series they’re promoting will hook readers and suck them into buying more comics, it will be this one.  We don’t spend a lot of time discussing Astro City here — probably because of it’s  somewhat erratic schedule — but Matt and I are both big fans of this book.
  • BATMAN RETURN OF BRUCE WAYNE #3 (OF 6) – Caveman Batman?  Check. Pilgrim Batman?  Got it.  Pirate Batman…  This week!  I expected that we’d only see Batman in different time periods thoughout this mini, but there’s definitely a coherent story between his time-jumps…And the Justice League’s attempts to stop him have got me hooked.  Thank you, Grant Morrison!
  • SUPERMAN #700 – Despite not reading any of the Robinson run and not planning to read the Strazcynski run, I probably shouldn’t pick this up.  But I’m a sucker for an anniversary issue, and the transition stories (ending New Krypton by Robinson and starting up whatever JMS is planning) mean I can stay somewhat current on Superman current events without actually putting up the time or money to read the whole things.

That’s it for me.  What are YOU looking at?

Superhero Secrets

Wonder Woman… SECRETS!

I moonlight as a sculptor of those Precious Moments Figurines. Sad clowns are my specialty.



People always call me "Super Woman." I've made my peace with it. Kal, on the other hand, hates when people call him "Wonder Man." He can be such a little girl.


My plane isn't invisible. It's in-VISIBLE. It's MORE than visible.



At a JLA Thanksgiving party, I once told a version of "The Aristocrats" that made Guy Gardner blush.
