Inside this episode! We have a review of Justice League Dark #0 and National Comics Rose & Thorn #1 (one-shot). We then have Maddy back for good old times! We mostly talk about Sword of Sorcery (Amethyst) and the controversy surrounding the first issue and the grim and gritty trend of the entire DC 52…this leads to our realization that DC editorial must have a “Grim & Gritty Wheel!” – first listener to design said wheel gets…um…nothing…but the pride of having done something awesome? Maddy gives us a well deserved Chick of The Week in the form of Barbara Randall Kesel!
Here are the breaks:
Justice League #0 – 00:50
National Comics: Rose & Thorn #1(one shot) – 10:08
I’m someone that continues to not be able (or willing?) to go to the craziness that is SDCC these days – my one and only SDCC visit was when I was 16 – it’s a WHOLE NEW THING SINCE THEN, or so I hear.
So like many of you I must get my “breaking news” from all the comic sites out there providing crazy good coverage. A particular tip of the hat to The Beat which did fantastic daily summaries of all their stories, making it easy for me to catch up on everything. And for today I decided to do a little roundup of my favorite news items from the con. Prepare yourself now, there’s lots of exciting all caps talk.
