This week, Chris and Matt are oddly surprised by the (possible?) commentary found in New Suicide Squad #1 by Sean Ryan and Jeremy Roberts. Then they like how Armor Hunters #1 by Robert Venditti and Doug Braithwaite hits the big event-comic notes without being contrived. And finally, they discuss a couple of DC's digital-comic offerings: Scooby Doo Team-Up #5 by Sholly Fisch and Dario Brizuela, and Bat-Manga #1 by Jiro Kuwata.
Wonder Woman has been quite the topic of conversation of late, thanks to the news that the popular and critically-acclaimed Brian Azzarello/Cliff Chiang creative team would soon be leaving her title after a three-year run to be replaced by the already controversial team of Meredith Finch/David Finch -- who have already made some troubling statements in simply trying to promote their run -- and the news that Gilbert Hernandez will bring his talents to the character for Sensation Comics.
While we were all talking about the Finch family, feminism, and the premier female superhero in comics history last week, we may have missed the fact that DC Comics just published an excellent Wonder Woman comic, one that cherry-picked elements from her most popular iterations (her weird-but-awesome Golden Age persona under the guidance of her creators, the Lynda Carter TV show, Super Friends) and presented them in dismemberment-free, all-ages comic that could be enjoyed by anyone from the littlest girl to the oldest old man. A comic book that was both fun and funny, and had just a touch of good old comic book insanity.
With just a month between Nickelodeon's first and second Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles seasons, fans haven't exactly been starved as they await the CG animated show's return later this fall. Still, it's been nice to see all-new stories during the interim from IDW. This week's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles New Animated Adventures #3 by David Tipton, Scott Tipton and artist Dario Dario Brizuela continues to fill the month-long cartoon void with a comics tale involving multiple flavors of brains.
Fans will have to wait until 2012 to catch the first episode of Cartoon Network's 3D Green Lantern: The Animated Series, but the comic book crowd will have early access to Hal Jordan's emerald adventures beginning November 30 with the release of Green Lantern: The Animated Series #0 written by Art Baltazar and Franco (Tiny Titans), with art by Dario Brizuela (Super Friends, Batman the Brave and the Bold). DC Comics has provided CA with an exclusive first look at the cover to the issue, which you can spy after the jump.From DC's official solicitation info:
