My New Comics

This week’s best cover is Doctor Who Classics #1.

Shadowpact #20, DC Comics.

The Search for Ray Palmer: Superwoman/Batwoman #1, DC Comics. I’m a big fan of DC’s multiverse stuff going back all the way to Crisis on Infinite Earths, that’s why Infinite Crisis was such a letdown. I’ve been staying away from Countdown despite the fact that I love the whole alternate earths idea. It’s a favorite comic book concept of mine. Well, I broke down and picked up this one issue because of the whole reversed gender of Earth 11. I always thought it would be a great concept for an alternate universe ever since What If # 34 (vol 1). I enjoyed this comic, except for Wonder Man’s costume, which is ridiculous. His “300” atmosphere was a kick, but his femmy suit didn’t work at all. Taken as joke, it’s OK I guess. I liked the women though; they looked like real gals not fake-boobed, steroid freaks (think Power girl in Infinite Crisis). Plus, having Columbia leading the Freedom Fighters shows that somebody is paying attention. I just gotta’ see earth 11’s version of Ambush Bug, Bizarro, and Swamp Thing. So does this mean the male version of Kate Kane is gay?"THIS IS SPARTA... ...ah, I mean THEMYSCICA... no wait... ELYSIUM ISLAND!"

Red Sonja #28, Dynamite Entertainment.

She-Hulk #24, Marvel Comics. I’m kinda lost. I think some stuff must have happened in other titles I’m not reading.

Star Trek: Year Four #5, IDW.

Star Trek: Alien Spotlight: Orions #1, IDW. These Alien Spotlights have been good.

Savage Tales #5, Dynamite Entertainment.

Doctor Who Classics #1, IDW. Reprints the comic book adventures of the 4th Doctor (Tom Baker) as drawn by Dave Gibbons.

Robotika #1, Archaia.

Trade Paperback
Golden Age Spotlight Vol#1: Phantom Lady AC Comics.

Alter Ego #74, Twomorrows Publishing. The Stan Lee 85th Birthday Issue.

Wonder Man looks like the world's crummiest drag queen. (why don't they you edit these things?)

WonderMan's costume has been my favorite part of Countdown :)

I haven't read any of countdown, except for this title (and captain carrot) but now I'm just obsessed with Wonder Man and his costume.
