This week on Teenage Wasteland…
J. Michael Straczynski is set to take on both Wonder Woman and the Man of Steel, and I find it interesting. Plus, a small observation on comic sales and the direct market and a run down of reviews on plenty of Number 1 issues. And, last but not least, Mr. Sandquist stops by to talk all things Sam Kieth.
Ultimate X #1
New Ultimates #1
Human Target #1
We’re talkin’ Thunder God this week with thoughts on Thor #12 and #600. Pat has the new releases and Steve impresses us with the first part in his series on the DeFalco and Ryan Fantastic Four. Plus, not one, but two messsages from Chris Chavez, aka Equinox!
Titles mentioned this week include Thor and Captain Britain and MI:13.
