For our 150th episode we kick off our second ever superseries by reading Justice League International from 1987. This “cult” classic by keith Giffen, JM DeMatteis, and Kevin Maguire countered the late-80’s trend toward dark and gritty by showing us the heroes behind the masks and their everyday interactions. The result is a perfectly-executed gem of a DC comics sitcom. It’s an incredibly fun read and is the perfect way to kick off this set of five JLI episodes.

We wrap up our Gail Simone series by reading the title she’s most notable for, “Birds of Prey.” The first volume, “Of Like Minds” drawn by Ed Benes and Alex Lei introduces us to an intriguing villain duo and introduces the Huntress to the Birds of Prey team. We dig into the great interpersonal character work that’s Simone’s forte and we mull over the choices Oracle and Canary find themselves making. Also, is it just us, or is the Huntress’ booty all over every page possible? Hooray, cheesecake! For more information on past or future episodes, visit www.AtomicPoweredSuperCast.com!
