Vaughan & Chiang's "Paper Girls" Builds a Familiar Yet Disconcerting World
Inside this episode! This week we review Secret Six #34, American Vampire: Survival Of The Fittest #1, and The Never Weres. Hot topic this week…could it be anything other than the DCnU? The September “re-launch” is all anyone in comics is talking about – which we’re sure DC considers some measure of success. Chick of the week is a tribute to one of the best female characters in all of comics, who will sadly be retconned back into oblivion come September. Barbara Gordon as Oracle, oh how we loved thee. There’s also a long discussion after the credits in which I try to convince Maddy and Sue to give Buffy The Vampire Slayer a try and the whole thing evolves (or devolves?) into a discussion about our influences and inspirations in fiction. I didn’t want to cut it because it’s interesting stuff (and I just don’t get to rant about the awesomeness that is Buffy enough), but I put it after the cut as it’s a bit off path from the rest of the cast. Enjoy!
