The latest tidbits on comics and media spawned by comics.  But first, if you’re looking for something to read, and you’re looking for DC not Marvel (then that’s your first mistake!) may I suggest the following: Batgirl/Robin Year One.  Both of these stories have been released as standalones, but now the stories are combined.  Batgirl Year One is easily the best Batgirl comic I’ve ever read, and Robin Year One is some of Chuck Dixon’s best work.  Plus, there’s art by Marcos Martin and you can’t beat that.  Over 400 pages for $25 bucks (reprints BGYO #1-9 and Robin #1-4).  There’s also a new Animal Man Omnibus that reprints Grant Morrison’s entire run—700 pages for $75.  If you haven’t read it yet, you can’t beat that price and it’s one of the best supercomics ever.  That’s not my opinion, it’s fact.  In addition to my suggested reading, I suggest you avoid all DC New 52 trades coming out in the next few months.  DC really has slipped dramatically in terms of quality.
Hit the break for the latest on the tie-in between Runaways and Uncanny X-Force, why you still shouldn’t care about Green Lantern, the latest Marvel creators to go across the street to DC, and much more!



Ironically, Denny O’Neill didn’t write the issue in which Joker fought Green Arrow.  Elliot S! Maggin did.
