They explained how little little little people can't breathe regular air in DS9 One Little ship, which is probably bumping around in your head too.

The first issue of the new digital only Adventures of Superman came out on Comixology today. Pretty good stuff featuring the classic Superman in his classic costume. Samnee kills it on art duties.

New interview with Geoff Johns and Jeff Lemaire...and Johns talks about "the end" of the Superman/Wonder Woman relationship and it's possible ramifications.

http://www.newsarama.com/comics/geof...inity-war.html

I'm honestly starting to become more interested in this now.

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

has much to anything been done with that relationship?

I admit I can't read Wonder Woman because it feels like glass under my finger nails, but does that make me less of a man?

Not really...depends on what you read. Lobdell has been mostly using Diana in "Superman" and she appeared in a date with Clark in "Action Comics". Bruce confronted them finally as mentioned in Justice League #19...but they've not been flaunting them in our faces, and actually have handled them pretty nicely.

You're missing out on "Wonder Woman" Guy...it's been fantastic, it's been my favourite book of the New 52...but yeah some haven't been as thrilled by it.

If it's the WW/SM relationship you're interested in, don't bother reading Wonder Woman. Azzarello is making no use or mention of the relationship. In past interviews, he's mentioned having no interest in it, and it doesn't work within his story. I wouldn't be surprised to see the relationship end with Trinity War. I shouldn't be surprised if this was the intended end all along, and thus there was no push to incorporate it in Wonder Woman.

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

I just finished reading Wonder Woman 07 through 11, and it's not as bad as I remember, but it's pretty clear that Azerello is miffed that he did not invent, or get to play with The Endless.

And really, how could she be marring a God while dating Superman? That's just asking for trouble!

The story feels pretty endless to me as it is. I'm sick of the parade of Amazons and god stories the book has been choking in since Jimenez and his Amazon Civil War. It was easier getting off Gilligan's Island than it's been to get Wonder Woman out of these kinds of tales.

Yeah I forgot to mention that Azzy is basically ignoring everything that is going on in the other books lol. It's basically a self contained ongoing story that is being told in "acts" it seems like. It's leading to some eventually grand end point, but I don't think anyone is really aware of what that is. Probably a potential war between the Greek Gods and the New Gods?

I've not read the books I got yet but did drop Animal Man today.
He's a character I've given a solid 20 issues to(including the #0) and I stayed this long mostly cause of the ties with Swamp Thing. I honestly might've kept chugging along but the new art team for issue #20 is horrid imo, so that made a "maybe keep buying" into a solid drop with this being the start of a new arc.

Also, for anyone curious about, but never tried, the Valiant relaunch from last summer they are releasing those books as $1 books this week. Try all 5 for $5: XO Manowar, Harbinger, Shadowman, Archer&Armstrong and Bloodshot.

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

I like Animal man but it's a difficult read (I'm ten issues behind you) and I can't find the drive to pick up an issue and start reading anywhere.

This is what I want from an Animal Man comic...

"Hey Starfire, wanna do it?"

"Arn't you still married?"

"Probably. I don't really care."

"Me Neither."

Then just issue after issue of flying superhero porn until the book is cancelled for moral questionableness.

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

I started getting Dynamite's Miss Fury.



It's a period piece like The Shadow and the art is fantastic.



Why bring this up here? I'm surprised at how similar she is to Catwoman. Thief puts on cat outfit and eventually becomes a crime fighter. I wonder who plagiarized who. She's a fascinating character though, almost the female version of The Shadow. She's a wealthy socialite who's bored and steals because of it. She also travels and a trip to Africa transforms her and endows her with heightened abilities. She then returns to Manhattan a new person.

It's a good read. I hope they can use this premise to tell decent stories.

That sounds interesting, could you throw out some details?

The God personify their concepts. War/Ares as an old man, Dionysius as a fratboy, etc. It's too bad Greg Rucka did this already in WW and it's not like the Endless were original in the first place.
