@g_man: NO! I didn't know that. ._.

@teerack: If we weren't talking about the original seven, we'd also have to include Stargirl and Simon Baz.

Who is Simon Baz??? ( jk :P )

I haven't kept up on Justice League. I fell off right when they had that Justice League war event so Simon and Stargirl being on the team is news to me. I thought Stargirl was in Justice League United? But I'm probably just totally wrong.

I'll probably be catching up in a lot of DC stuff over the next few weeks since a lot of books I am behind in are ending now, so I'll be trying to finish those titles.

Yes agree with Dan Didio OMAC. It is not as terrible as people call it is. Also Forever People is good too. Dan Didio really love to write obsecure DC Characters

Omega Men makes total sense I mean they are pretty much DC's Guardians of the Galaxy.

I think the reason they have 49 titles instead of 52 is because once the ( 4 I think ) 6 issue mini series end they'll release another wave of new comics, and then they'll have 52 comics.

I'm the exact opposite of Mat and Corey (and probably Tony) when it comes to Wonder Woman. I've never been able to really connect with her as a character, because it was always about trying to prove how strong she was, not getting into who she is when she's vulnerable and has her guard down. I feel like Meredith Finch is giving that to me for the first time. Personally I think Cliff Chiang's art looks terrible which was the sole reason I never picked up Azzarello's run (I really like Azzarello's writing, but if the art looks terrible on a book I don't want to bother). Chiang made her look like a linebacker, and that isn't sexy to me at all. I want Wonder Woman to look hot, but not at the expense of her being a strong fighter and character. With David Finch she actually looks like feminine, but she's still strong and capable of holding her own. I love strong characters and seeing great female characters kick ass and have unique personalities.Catwoman is one of my favorite DC characters, and when I was reading X-Men in the 90's Psylocke was my favorite female character. Those are examples of really strong female characters, who have unique personalities, look sexy on the page in the hands of the right artist, and can kick major but. That's what I tend to look for in female characters, and I've feel like Wonder Woman has only met the last one of that criteria for me, and that's not enough. Finally with this creative team, I'm getting a Wonder Woman that covers those three aspects I look for in female characters.

Why cancel Supergirl when they have her show launching? *sigh* I guess I will just have to wait for the re launch when the show starts up.

It's sad the only time the book had a 12 issue run when it was aloud to do its own thing was when the New 52 launched.

DC editorial need to pick a direction and stick to and give the writers the freedom they need to tell the tale without getting dragged into crossovers every 6 months.

How do you guys not know who Gene Luen Yang is? American Born Chinese. Boxers and Saints. The Shadow Hero. Dude is pretty critically acclaimed. So yeah Superman is in good hands. A quick Google search and you guys would know he's well known for more than just Avatar comics. Argh.

Posted by G-Man

@daring_doodads: I try not to do "quick google searches" while recording. It distracts from the show. Also, if you've ever recorded, when you're in the middle of a conversation, you sometimes forget things and they come to you later. Sorry if that's a problem or hard to understand.

@g_man: Wasn't trying to be a jerk Tony. I know you personally can't google while trying to put on a show but Matt was clearly doing some online research while the podcast was taping and saying someone who won an Eisner did absolutely nothing but some Avatar comics comes across as very dismissive especially when they are well-known outside of ghe big two superhero companies. The fact that DC is getting more indy and well-respected people to do books for them is a big deal and it just feels sometimes even when they do the right thing they don't get the praise or respect Marvel does because of past missteps. I know you work hard and we appreciate what you do I just find myself yelling at the podcast sometimes. And Matt is awesome so I don't want him to feel like I'm bagging on him.

"We're not idiots" - Matt E. Comic Vine

Talk about diversity every week. Don't talk down to people who have a different opinion than yours.

Also, some cognitive dissonance: You've instructed comic fans to stop overanalyzing and nitpicking adaptations in other media because that adaptation "isn't for us. It's for new fans". If that's the case, why does comic book adaptation press releases take up the first third of the podcast? The Comic Vine podcast, reportedly the #1 comic book resource.

Tony, Mat, Cory, how can you say that there is not a lot of decent stuff out for DC this week? Grayson was pretty awesome (a little weird but awesome), Detective Comics is always well drawn (I personally don't like the Anarky story but a lot of people are digging it), Green Lantern was good for setting up whatever is coming next (so many people complain that GL is event after event and Venditti is actually giving us time to catch our breaths), Futures End is building up to the payoff (for those of us who have been regularly reading this weekly), Action Comics was pretty awesome, Superman was good (for those of us who can stand John Romita Jr's art), and Swamp Thing was awesome (the build up issue to the final battle!). You just kind of wrote a lot of these series off because none of you guys are really following them or you read the and don't really appreciate them.

It seems like you give a lot of kudos to Hawkeye-esque Marvel books. That is probably why you get a lot of people saying you guys favor Marvel. I think if you guys are going to gloss over a lot of the DC titles, you might as well not review them at all in the podcast or hire someone with a different viewpoint on the good to decent DC books.

I mentioned TEC was awesome, Superman was awesome, the tone of Action is really cool, Catwoman has been really good. I think the only DC thing I mentioned I didn't like was GL and Lobo. We didn't talk about Futures End, Green Arrow, Aquaman & The Others and Swamp Thing, but we also talked about Batman Eternal. Out of the books released this week, we talked about more than half of them. As for Marvel, we talked about 10 of the 16 books released. Marvel released more books, so of course, we ended up talking about more. It's actually pretty even considering how many books each company released this week.

When researching in a pinch, I just go through our wiki system and sometimes, things aren't filled out fully. Gene Luen Yang's page is one of them.

Grayson is one of the top 5 books that DC is putting out right now. You gotta read it especially when Janin is doing the art. How come no mention of Lady Killer #2 or Bitch Planet #2? The guys on my comic store said that Lady Killer was a huge surprise with how well is has been selling.

Posted by G-Man

@jewishdork: I didn't have te stack of comics in front of me this week since I didn't go into the office at the last minute. I did review Lady Killer, which I hope you saw and it was also on the Essentials list. So I just forgot to mention it. As for Bitch Planet, that was out the week before, also reviewed. That's why we didn't mention it THIS week.

Just finished listening to the podcast. Enjoyable and entertaining as always.

@g_man: Thanks. I overlooked that. Great podcast. I loved how you guys went through all of the new DC comics and their creative teams. It will be exciting to see all of these new writers and artists that I have never read before.

Posted by D9000

Do a lot of people not like the Dare Devil origin costume from Man Without Fear? I feel like people who haven't read that book seem to dislike it in the trailer. I always loved that costume.

@g_man @inferiorego Im retracting all my comments about a-force.. gonna give it a chance, you're both right.. theres no point stressing about the stuff that doesnt matter. long as its a good story/art whats the difference. Once i gave it a chance, black widow became one of my favorite series currently. huge fan. back to being that 'reasonable' user.
