Luke Cage History: From Hero for Hire to Hollywood
TV, Comic Books
Inside this episode! We review Scott Snyder and Jock’s Detective Comics #876, the beginning of a new arc. Suffice to say we think Snyder is killing it on this book right now, listen to find out why. We also take a look at Mark Waid’s Ruse #2 from Crossgen by way of Marvel. The tag line for the book is “He’s the World’s Greatest Detective. She’s even better” which well sums up the completely fun tone of Waid’s book. For our Hot Topic we discuss accessibility of comics to new readers and the many related facets therein. Sue picks this week’s Chick Of The Week, a powerful female artist in superhero comics that we all love. Plus everyone’s pick of the week.
