This Week’s Must Read:  Black Canary and Zatanna: Bloodspell

By now, I’ve come to terms with DC Comics’ New 52. And while sure, I’ll always hold a torch for the convoluted, messy continuity I first came to love, I’m done blaming the publisher of characters I love for “ruining” them. Especially when they give us stories like this!
Black Canary and Zatanna teaming up in Las Vegas on adventure written by Paul Dini! Be still my heart! This original graphic novel (out today in hardcover), with its wonderful, classic character designs by Joe Quinones, is just what any pre-New 52 fan could want. Plus, FISHNETS.

This Week’s Must Read:  Elektra #2

In all honesty I wasn’t that excited about this series when it was first solicited, but the first issue was action packed and really beautiful. I’m excited to see how Haden Blackman continues developing the character. I also can’t wait to dive into more of Michael Del Mundo beautiful artwork.

I’ve been eagerly anticipating this book for a while. First, because it’s Paul Dini (creator of Harley Quinn and writer of some on the best cartoons you’ve ever seen) doing the writing. Next, because it’s two of my favorite heroines starring in it. The artwork by Joe Quinones looks fantastic. And this story promises to be what a lot of the superhero books published by DC Comics today fail to be – fun!
