Sandman.

It was more about his adventures than super heroing, but now and then he crossed the line.

Of course, Promethea was about a thousand times odder than that.

There used to be a Jeudo Christian ANGEL in the Justice League Watchtower on the Moon.

I think it's weird how the Spectres powers are on some sort of vague sliding scale.

but he's an instrument of god too.

Eclipso has been painted as the Spectres equal and opposite via some great wheel karmic balance bullshit, "it" has also got some serious ties to Apokolips.

Which brings us to Mister Miracle.

A billion years old but he just wants to be Ward Cleaver.

(However Byrne had Scott Free hanging out as a cowboy in the 19th century because his escape from the granny goodnesses orphanage might have happened thousands and thousands of years ago and he's been drinking buddies with Vandal Savage since before that **** could shave.)

Is the sextape Big Barda made with Superman going to be floating about in the New 52?

Obviously probably not the same sextape, but timey-whimey a sex tape.

That's the problem, magic and gods make it too easy to break the rules and make for an unfair fight. It basically trumps everything else.

Wonder Woman #8: The cover we discussed is finally here and I love it.



What happened to Wonder Woman at the end looked pretty painful. Never seen that happen to her before. And I can't wait to see what happens when she wakes up. They have my attention again.

I love the art in Wonder Woman. It's unique and suits the story perfectly: dark but cartoony, a hard trick to pull off. And Diana's facial features are recognizably related to the 30s Wonder Woman.

Yeah, I've looked at some of the previews on Comixology, and while it is a more unique look, I like it.

@Derishton hit it on the nail about the art. Cliff Chiang's art isn't for everyone, but it fits the tonal structure of the story and it is slightly cartoony. It is almost like a grittier Frank Quietly. I don't think what we saw happen at the end of issue 8 has happened to Diana before. One of the great things about this book is that Diana has been making mistakes, and been distracted because of learning about her true heritage and dealing with it. I knew Hades was going to trick her, that's kind of what he does to get his own way. Next month should be awesome.

Have you met Superman? The Flash? Green Lantern?

In the end its just as fictional as mutants, aliens and comic book science and will only trump something when needed for the story.

Agreed, hell given what Superman is capable of in the Golden Age how is he anything but a god?

Kyle Higgins and Scott Synder discuss the Night of Owls...as has been pointed out the genesis of this current arc has been laid out since the excellent Gates of Gotham mini-series last summer.

Re: DC's New 52: Reviews and Discussion (Spoilers welcolme and likely)

Aquaman #3 to #7: I caught up on the last five issues in one sitting and I must say... This is a phenomenally written title. I find it to be a cut above your average comic book. It deconstructs the superhero genre with a good balance between absurdity and seriousness, and it has some actual story and substance behind the usual clichéd action. It also acknowleges the fact that Aquaman isn't the big time iconic hero that someone like Superman is and plays that up. This is the way you humanize characters. Mera's pretty hot too. And I loved that dog. Can't forget the dog. You know the writing is good when they can make one page worth of dog more memorable than the full run of most other titles.
