Opinions are like tits.

BIG OPINIONS!

small opinions.

Those long banana-like opinions you find in back issues of NATIONAL GEOGRAPHICS! Since the queer boys of CBQ gave you their quickie opinions on some current comics percolating the spin rack on the podcast, this girl offers you her feminine take on the comix crop out nowz.

Issue 148 – Worst. Episode. Ever.

Share

We meant to bring some rejuvenated enthusiasm to a comic book review episode…but failed miserably. Come join Joe, TonyL, PattyBoom and stevieD as they get their inner fanboy on and give you their picks of the week. This time around we review FF #4, American Vampire #15, Detective Comics #877, Ruse #3, Godzilla #1-3, and Justice Society of America #51. But by the end, the conversation devolves into a bitch fest about Flashpoint #1.

What I meant to say was…. Ginger Girl, why can’t they get you right?!

Fuck this, DC, get me right or I am out of here!

I didn’t grow up a fan of Hawkgirl though I’ve always thought she seemed interesting and strong.  Hawkman was always the focus of the comics while she was rarely (if ever) seen without him.  Crisis on Infinite Earths and Zero-Hour started the domino effect that ultimately changed the dynamic of the winged wonders. The origins of the Hawks kept changing and their identities seemed fluid due to DC’s need to make their continuity linear. It seemed as if they didn’t give the Hawks a chance to succeed.  That changed in the 90s.  Alan Davis’ “The Nail” was released, Justice League premiered on Cartoon Network and, Hawkgirl’s potential was realized! She was revealed as a strong, independent, kick-ass female character that didn’t have to be a sidekick to a male version of her character.   So, why is it that despite clear fan appeal, DC can’t get Hawkgirl right in the mainstream DCU?

...and I hear even The Queen of England farts. It's all relative.

Nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance…. also known as MARVEL’S 2011 SUMMER EVENT!
