Inside this episode! Reviews of the final issue of Joe Keatinge and Ross Campbell’s groundbreaking Glory run from Image. A review of Polarity #1 – a new miniseries from Boom! by musician Max Bemis and Jorge Coelho. We talk about random comics news and Sue makes an impassioned plea for DC to pay attention to Lois Lane’s 75th Anniversary – since she is celebrating along with Superman this year. We also interview badass superhero costume designer, cover artist, animator (and more!) Kris Anka! We’ve also got an open call for both future Chick of the Weeks you’d like to see, as well as your votes for some of the best comic book costumes around – both those that have stood the test of time, and which desperately need an update?

The Abandoned An’ Forsaked – So WHO Killed Spawn?

Every week, we will be examining comic book stories and ideas that were not only abandoned, but also had the stories/plots specifically “overturned” by a later writer (as if they were a legal precedent). Click here for an archive of all the previous editions of The Abandoned An’ Forsaked. Feel free to e-mail me at bcronin@comicbookresources.com if you have any suggestions for future editions of this feature.

Today we take a look at the downside of having a shared universe when the characters in the shared universe aren’t owned by the same people, as a departure by an Image Comics founder led to Todd McFarlane having to come up with a new killer of Al Simmons, the man who would return to Earth after death as the hellspawn known as, well, Spawn.
