If you’re ever suffering from a case of fan malaise, find the nearest comics/sci-fi/fantasy/anime convention and go. You won’t regret it. As Megacon reminded me, there’s nothing quite like a con to reconnect a person with the joys of fandom. Spending a few days surrounded by happy people in costumes and talking to the creators...

You may have read Erika's review of Batman Incorporated #2, which is a stellar issue. Everything she said about it is true. Talia most certainly is a great character and Grant Morrison writes her well. But the issue stood out for me because it is full of DC continuity past. Somehow (we all know how),... Continue Reading →
G3 has had some issues with Wonder Woman lately. Not the character, but her title. V. summed it up very well in a heartfelt post about her frustration with the comic book’s direction in recent months. I was OK with writer Brian Azzarello’s dark vision for the Amazons and his revamp of Wonder Woman’s origin,... Continue Reading →
When we started doing Friday Favorites here at G3, the concept was more about featuring B-list characters that we loved. We wanted to shine a light where it isn't always shining. But this Friday, I want to honor the leading lady of comics because she deserves it. More specifically, I'd like to honor Brian Azzarello... Continue Reading →
My full review of Wonder Woman #1 is up over at Newsarama.com. CLICK HERE to check it out.
I have intentionally been quiet about the new DC books these past couple of weeks. Mostly because every site and its mom is reviewing them, E. has covered a few, too. What more could I possibly say that hasn't been said? Well, I've always got something to say. I'm not picking up all of the... Continue Reading →
While I'm not feeling particularly angsty about the relaunch, I am not terribly excited, either. I am … neutral. I feel like it is just a bunch of new books all at once instead of parsed out. So, I will try the titles that are interesting to me as I would any other time. Another... Continue Reading →
Piggybacking on Thursday’s post, here’s a rundown of the DC comics I’m pulling and/or sampling post-relaunch, and why. It’s a pretty long list, so with a few exceptions, all titles will be retained/cut based on the first three issues. I’m relying on the kindness of my geek friends to sample those not mentioned here. In... Continue Reading →
When DC announced its relaunch, many readers — present company included — had a bit of a meltdown. I wouldn’t go so far as to say that I freaked out, but my knee certainly jerked hard enough to cause injury. In my whiniest voice, I declared it to be a short-term exercise in nonsense. Weeks...

The DC re-launch has dominated the comics conversation since its announcement, and readers are in varying stages of acceptance. But not everyone's grieving. I've heard a handful of people say that this (mostly) clean slate approach is not only necessary, but also smart. The medium is struggling, and most fans would agree that something needs...
