Cassandra Cain by Ross Campbell

A couple weeks ago, Girls Gone Geek was running a hashtag on twitter called #DreamComics asking people to pitch their character and creative team that would make up their dream comics at DC and Marvel. There were some great suggestions. Because I was a bit busy I simply gave them a link to my Marvel “Dreamy Lady Team Ups” column from late 2013 instead of coming up with new ideas, but it got me thinking about DC books, which I never did a similar piece for. In truth, I never did a “Dreamy Lady Team Ups” piece (or similar) for DC because it’s just a rough place for me right now. There are so many characters I love there, but – as many of you are well aware – it’s just not a very welcoming place to me right now.

Inside this episode! An advance (spoiler free!) review of issue #13 of the Eisner winning Saga by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples and a review of the first issue of Jeff Lemire’s new Trillium mini-series. Then we talk to the lovely Dustin Nguyen about his amazing Batman: Li’l Gothameasily my favorite book DC is publishing right now. We talk process, and what’s in store for Li’l Gotham, and mostly I try my best (and fail miserably) not to fangirl out about all my favorite Li’l Gotham stuff. After the interview we talk about some comics, Sue talks about last weekend and Boston Comic Con, and we talk about the most amazing collaborative sketch of all time! There’s no “dramatic reading” this week as Sue was a bit under the weather, but next time, I promise! (probably).

Tune in to CSBG every other Monday at noon as we review comics and discuss hot topics of the week.
