We start off 2013 with a writer’s arc focusing on Brian Michael Bendis. This week we read “Powers,” an Image comic about two detectives trying to solve the case of a murdered super hero. We talk about the Christian-Deena relationship, the cartoon-noire art style, and good old-fashioned street-level murder mystery.

Our DC Let Down arc starts off with the big daddy of controversial comics: “Identity Crisis.” Written by Brad Meltzer with art by Rags Morales and Michael Bair, this comic kicks you until you fall to the ground crying, then kicks you some more. We talk about the depressing, violent, sexualized themes in this comic along with their repercussions on the super hero genre.
