Welcome back everyone! This week there is quite a bit to say as opposed to previous weeks. If you have not heard we are now doing Comic Book Talk episodes on our podcast! Send us feedback and suggestions! Now, let's get into it.
I previously talked at length about the lead-in to the Avengers event that we also reviewed in Comic Book Talk #1. The event is starting now and I think it will be very interesting. There was only the one build up issue but it was very good.
This Batgirl issue has been widely covered by various sites as Barbara's transgendered friend is getting married in it. It is a huge issue because it is tackling this massive social mainstay. Not only is this issue of Batgirl big for comics, it may be huge for the LGBT community. I am not sure if this is one to invest in but it is a first. If you are interested in collecting comics I might suggest picking up a couple of these.
The Discipline is the only #1 I am picking up this week. Black Widow was on my radar but I ultimately decided against it despite the dream team of Mark Waid and Samnee working on this. Discipline is an Image comics product and I think it will be extremely interesting.
The last thing I want to talk about is Spider-Man. Everyone should be prepared to understand that in comics right now, Spider-Man is synonymous with Miles Morales. I am still adjusting to this as well. Peter Parker is the Amazing Spider-Man still but Miles is the Spider-Man. The first issue was great and I am sure it only gets better.
Thank you everyone for supporting us and #StayNerdy!
