CM Podcast 146 – DC’s Age Of Heroes

From the pages of the very entertaining Metal mini series, DC has decided to launch a grouping of 8 new superhero books.  Some of them have characters you are familiar with and some are brand new.  There are 4 books out right now:

Damage – Written by Robert Venditti with Art by Tony S. Daniel

The Silencer – Written by Dan Abnett with Art by John Romita Jr.

Sideways – Written by Dan Didio & Justin Jordan with Art by Kenneth Rocafort

The Terrifics – Written by Jeff Lemire with Art by Ivan Reis


Jon and I have read the first four titles and we opine on which books we like and which books need a little more work.  We also point out that some of the new characters seem a little familiar (maybe more so than a rival comic company would like).  Will this strategy of evoking a pastiche of established characters in their new comics work for DC?  We think it will and we explain why.

Your comics pal,
