This week we are reading the prematurely cancelled Children of the Atom (2021) #1-6 by Vita Ayala. Despite the early cancellation, this is a arc we would all suggest reading. It was fun, it was well-drawn, the story is well-told, and it was overall an interesting take on the status quo in the Krakoa era. Next week is a feature, and after that we ar…

The Femme Fatale. A woman so magnetic, no man can resist her--literally. Like, physically incapable. Because she has eldritch seduction powers, beyond even her control. No, that's not EVERY femme fatale, but it is Jo from the Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips collaboration Fatale (2012) #1-5: Death Chases Me, which we discuss this week with comic creat…
 
Finally we read a femme fatale story written by a woman. This week we read Red Sonja (2014) #1-6: Queen of Plagues, a more modern story about the She-Devil With a Sword herself. This is a character that none of us were too familiar with, and this story was a great introduction. Join us in getting to know the Queen of All Fermented Beverages, Red So…

Ever done something you wish you could take back? Ever made a series of steadily escalating poor decisions where you knew at every turn you were careening towards disaster and dragging the people you love along with you? If so, you can probably relate to Selina Kyle (Catwoman) in this week's story, Selina's Big Score by Darwyn Cooke. Monte's theme …
 
Wait, what's happening? What happened to the regular episode? WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE? Four shows simultaneously discussing Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness?

This week we discuss the pilot episode of the 2019 live-action TV adaptation of Doom Patrol. Buckle in. Next week we will be reading Ghost Rider (1973) #68: The Curse…
 
Redemption can look a little strange, depending on who is seeking it. For a certain someone, it might include a lot of the only thing she knows how to do well--contract killing.

Some characters have been changed around by continuity A LOT. Barbara Gordon is high on the list. Her age has been halved, traumas suffered and erased with comic book science, careers and motivations put through a blender. According to Veronica's 100% OBJECTIVE RESEARCH METHODOLOGY, we have found the OBJECTIVELY BEST Batgirl comic despite all that.…

Who doesn't love a good space opera? And who deserves a space opera more than T'Challa, the Black Panther, King of Wakanda and Consort of the Goddess?

This is it. The end of all comics. What will be left when the best comic ever* (*out of the 64 we read in our regular seasons) is determined? Probably nothing.

If you think stories and narratives from under-represented groups are only for people in those groups, you are WRONG! So long as you are respectful when consuming it, a self-narrative of a woman's transition has something for everyone, not least of which is a connection to someone in that group. Join us this week as we discuss Super Late Bloomer, b…
