Sorry for the delay and confusion folks…having some technical difficulties over here…but finally…IT’S EPISODE 012!
Inside this episode! We review the second issue of Brian Wood and Ryan Kelly’s New York Five #2, the Vertigo mini-series that follows up on their popular Minx book The New York Four from 2007. It’s 32 gorgeous pages for $2.99…talk about holding the line! We also take a look at American Vampire writer Scott Snyder’s exceptional story in Detective Comics #874 with crazy good art by Francesco Francovilla. The Hot Topic this week is a discussion around Women’s Origins in comics and includes a discussion of The Killing Joke among others. Maddy picks this week’s CHICK OF THE WEEK, is a massively talented rising star in comics, a creator that we all love, from her mainstream to her independent work, and including her fantastic ongoing superhero strip and now infamous short about a grouchy character that’s the best at what he does. Plus everyone’s pick of the week.
