i always thought it was kinda weird how everyone thought gail simone would write a great wonder woman. was it just because simone's a woman? maybe i'm missing something but none of her books prior to that would've really given me that impression. i mean it was certainly a improvement over the jodi piccoult and amazons attack stuff tho just about anything else would've been better than that

then again even tho i think azzarello's doing almost exactly what i've wanted with wonder woman i never would've picked him to be the guy to do it so what do i know

It's just a cover. It's not necessarily saying he defeated Clark and Bruce, he might just be hoisting them up after they were attacked by someone else. I agree it couldn't actually be achieved in any convincing way in the actual story...

all the best comics come out this week

Jason Latour is gonna take over Winter Soldier when Brubaker leaves and based on his Untold Tales of PunisherMAX story it should be interesting

Was thinking about checking out Lobdell's Superman with the annual this week (I liked his Superboy for a bit) until I saw that Nicieza has a co-writing credit *puke*

Yeah I never bother with the Avatar variants. Makes me wonder who they're actually making them for.

On that note, what kind of retard is going to buy the Robot Chicken variant for Aquaman #12?

But... the show sucks. It's not even funny.

The whole thing with Aquaman being a joke, I mean, did anyone *ever* think that before the New 52? No. Did people who write for Robot Chicken? Yes. Did people who watch Robot Chicken? Uh-huh.

Bottom of the barrel, dawg.

i'm not a fan of the show but you must recognize that its popular and the value in the cross promotion.

are you some kind of spaz?


That's it, get mad.

I didn't say that retards who seek out the variant don't exist, nor that the show is without a large demographic. I was merely asking for a profile of the kind of retard who would willingly part with money for such a variant.

But hey, while we're at it: I don't care about its popularity, either.
