We take some time too look back on the past year of our show: the best comics we’ve read and the worst, along with what we kept reading and the comic moments that still stick in our mind. We’ll be back with our regular programming next week when we read “Creator-Owned Heroes.” For more info on past and future shows, visit www.AtomicPoweredSuperCast.com!
For our 99th episode, we read the digital-only series “Ame-Comi” by Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti. Inspired by a series of statuettes, the comic creates an alternate DC Universe where all the superheroes are women. The result is an incredibly interesting commentary on comics today. We also take a good chunk of time for an in-depth discussion of the digital comics experience. For more information on past or future shows, visit www.atomicpoweredsupercast.com!
This week, Andy squeals with glee as we kick off our “Beefcake Babes” series with Powergirl: A New Beginning. Written by Justin Gray & Jimmy Palmiotti, this trade chronicles Karen Starr’s attempts to re-establish herself as her own heroine in the city she loves — New York. Amanda Conner’s art awes us and we wax poetic about how great it is to see a superhero who isn’t burdened by her powers, but liberated instead.
