Trade paperbacks, older editions, and miscellaneous for February AND March 2013

ChannelEvil (2)

Last month, I didn’t get a chance to finish all of these before I went to the convention in Seattle, and then I was busy when I got back. So this month, we get a double dose of trades and books I’ve read and such. That means this is really long, and I apologize for that!

3 Chicks Review Comics – Episode 040

Hey! It’s our 40th episode!

CLICK HERE TO LISTEN, DOWNLOAD, AND/OR SUBSCRIBE TO ITUNES NOW.

Inside this episode! We review Justin Gray, Jimmy Palmiotti, and Amanda Conner’s digital release Ame-Comi Wonder Woman #1 with wonderful colors by Paul Mounts; Jeff Lemire and Mikel Janin’s Justice League Dark #9. We then have an oversized installment talking with writer Kelly Sue DeConnick about her upcoming project Captain Marvel as well as her reboot of Ghost for Dark Horse with Phil Noto, and an upcoming creator owned project with Emma Rios! We also geek out about The Avengers movie, speculate on The Dark Knight Rises, and talk about writing for different artists! For Chick of the Week this week I choose the uber-talented (and delightful) Stephanie Hans, who I’ve now had the pleasure of working with twice and can’t even express how wonderful it has been. I get all tongue-tied even. We also chat about the Alan Scott reveal and Hunger Games and how closet (and not so closet) racism and homophobia still depress the crap out of us.

Committed: Crime Fighting Female Duos – Daughters of the Dragon

I just read Daughters of the Dragon, simply out of curiosity about one of the only female crime fighting duo’s (in comic books or any other entertainment medium.) While I’m a bit of an old Iron Fist fan, and I do enjoy reading comics about female superheroes, and Misty and Colleen are a creation of Chris Claremont and John Byrne (who did some very weird but very good things with strong, sexy women in other books, including the marvelous Dark Phoenix Saga) Daughters of the Dragon was the only female crime-fighting duo book I could find. It sounds ridiculous, and I’m hoping that perhaps some of you reading this can help me, but they were one of the only crime-fighting, female duos that I could think of in any entertainment medium, outside of that old ’80’s tv series; Cagney and Lacey.
