This week’s DC comics

it-grrl:

My usual two for week 3. Spoilers below fold - they’re vague but they are still spoilers, technically.

Supergirl #34: Really good, only minor quibbles but overall I liked this a lot.

Batwoman #34: Pisspoor. It’s so disappointing.

Yeah this is the Batwoman issue that made me certain about taking it off my pull list. Which sucks bc it’s the one nu52 book I’ve been following since #1.

Haven’t gotten to comics yet. Is Batwoman that bad? I’ve been okay with the new team. Not blown away, but it’s worth my time and full price.

I liked the first year of nu52 Supergirl, but eventually stopped reading because of the glacial pace. I saw that Bedard was this issue and thought about it. He’s so underrated. Big Barda playing Pokémon? That was him. The only legitimately good issue to come out of the Amazons Attack clusterfuck? Him. I still gave it a pass though.

Can Kara speak English yet?

Why is Spider-woman’s butt front and center on a comic book cover wrong, but Nicki Minaj gyrating for five minutes good? Time, place, and tone. If Spider-woman were a sex comedy or flat-out porn comic book, then that would be perfect.

dcwomenkickingass:

Marvel continues to give female characters their own books. Captain Marvel, Ms. Marvel, She-Hulk, Black Widow, Elektra, Storm and now Jessica Drew, Spider-Woman/

Are you excited?

Check out these covers from Spider-Woman #1. First the regular cover by Greg Land. Oh, wait, you knew that Greg Land…

THERE IS A TIME AND A PLACE. Geez.

New Video Clip, Images From “Batman: Assault On Arkham” Animated Feature

Amanda Waller. The Wall. One of the most powerful people in the DC Universe. She even strikes fear in the Batman. That’s how powerful she is.

Shame the comics took away some of that power as well as her imposing figure.

Apparently, Ra’s Al Ghul is using Windows 95

Better than Windows 8.
I still miss Windows 3.1.

FROM UNDER MOUNTAINS: MARIAN CHURCHLAND, CLAIRE GIBSON AND SLOAN LEONG SUBVERT CLICHÉS WITH A NEW FANTASY ADVENTURE
By Juliet Kahn
There will be magic in From Under Mountains, an ongoing fantasy series coming from Image in 2015 and announced at Comic-Con International in San Diego. Set in the world of Akhara, the story introduces us to a lord’s daughter, a disgraced knight, and a runaway thief whose unlikely partnership will change the course of a world locked in a bitter conflict between rival clans. There will be goblins and witches and knights as well, lost in the churning of a world in turmoil. Great houses will square off for power. Thieves will dash into the shadows. Naïve youths will learn that the world is vaster and more terrible than they ever imagined. In these warm, well-worn ways, it will embrace the best that fantasy, as a genre has to offer: sweeping scope grounded in the lives of heroes, villains, and everything in between.
Creators Marian Churchland, Claire Gibson, and Sloane Leong have worked on everything from Elephantmen to magical girl comics about anthropomorphic wolves, and they are bringing their varied experience to bear upon From Under Mountains and the fantasy genre in ways both familiar and innovative. ComicsAlliance talked with them to discuss breaking new ground with thoughtfulness, experience, and memories of Ursula Le Guin.
READ THE EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW

Well, this looks fantastic.

When did Image get fucking awesome? Invincible was probably the start of the upswing, right?
Again, I’m in.
