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.

Robotika #1, Archaia.
Golden Age Spotlight Vol#1: Phantom Lady AC Comics.
