Our “Hosts’ Choice” series starts with a bang as we read the first three issues of “Creator-Owned Heroes,” a unique title by Jimmy Palmiotti & friends combining ongoing comic book stories with interviews and editorials. We discuss the merits and drawbacks of the innovative format along with our hopes for the future of this format. There might be an accidental feminism rant in there, too. But hey! There are two dystopias in one – American Muscle’s in-your-face action and Trigger Girl’s slick style. Man, how good is Phil Noto’s art?

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!
