Rumor has it that Madame Xanadu will soon meet her end at Vertigo.
Guest writer Jenn gives her take on DC's throwback strategy.
An amazing heroine ought to have an amazing costume.
By the absurdly slim margin of 51.7% over 48.3%, it has been decided that I should finish reading Crisis on Infinite Earths. Hooray for me. For those who voted for me to move on, thanks for trying. I've got some juicy stuff waiting for me. Now it's taunting me. Perhaps that will get me through the 200 … Continue reading I’m So Anti, Crisis Don’t Matter
Secret Six #20 played out like a well-acted revenge thriller. Catman reminded me of Liam Neeson in Taken. Those baddies effed with the wrong guy! Still, I wish Cheshire had come along to help with the revenge portion of the show. Maybe Gail will bring her around later. Let's hope. On the whole, this issue … Continue reading Gail Was Robbed!
To paraphrase our friend Shag of Once Upon a Geek, sometimes our hobby hurts us and it doesn't love us back. That's a pretty good summary of how I felt last week when V. dropped the news that Greg Rucka, one of our favorite comic book writers, was parting ways with DC.

I pre-ordered both, and I’ve been hitting up the UPS site regularly to track my packages.

I've made no secret of my admiration for Gail Simone. Her writing is smart, interesting and fun, and she can write the hell out of a kick-ass chick. Many of my favorite characters are so because of her capable hand in their development. At the top of that list is Lady Shiva. I'll keep it … Continue reading The Question: Will Lady Shiva Be Redeemed?
The very first Girls Gone Geek guest essay comes courtesy of our pal Chocotaco, who is a great lunch companion and a formidable debater on geek-related topics. We're as confused as anyone about the fate of Wonder Woman's relationship with Tom Tresser/Nemesis, who basically broke up with her several issues ago. But is it really … Continue reading G3 Guest Essay: An Open Letter to Nemesis
There are few things I love more than comics. They are rich with iconic characters that I've always loved, from Wonder Woman to the more obscure but fascinating anti-hero Lady Shiva. And oh, how I love the art; so many ways to draw a character, an emotion, an action. Add to that the stories and the ingenious … Continue reading If It Pleases and Sparkles …
