You know, I love me some Eddy Barrows art. The guy is great!

But…I can wait for this to hit DCUI. Sounds kind-of interesting, just not enough to follow as its coming out.

Now, Wonder Girl #4. That’s my Book of the Week next week!

hopes that Wonder Girl can get First Look call-outs in the future, because it’s pretty darn good

Definitely thinking of picking this up when it comes out – it seems like a fun concept and idea to play around with.

Also, I see what you guys are doing there with that last page. :eyes:

Okay, I’m cautiously optimistic. I was worried from the solicits, but so far it seems like this might actually be pretty interesting, and I love seeing the Lazarus Resin used in a Jason plotline. Really hoping that means we’re going to get into an exploration of the Lazarus Pit’s effects on Jason, which is something the comics have kind of teased but never really gotten nearly as into as I’d have liked. The burn scars on his back are a nice touch, too. Consider this Jason Todd fan on board.

Though, just for the record, if you have to use arrows to indicate the reading order you should probably reconsider your layout.

Why, they’re focusing on the use of arrows, of course. :smirk:
