Zatana #4
Written by PAUL DINI • Art by CHAD HARDIN and WAYNE FAUCHER • Cover by STEPHANE ROUX • 1:10 Variant cover by BRIAN BOLLAND
Zatanna loves Vegas, and Vegas loves her – but should Zee be wary of the attentions of a handsome, well-connected casino owner? She can hold her own against the most ridiculous Royal Flush Gang ever assembled, and she can just about cope with her cousin Zachary’s immature antics, but she’d better watch out for the sultry fire demons that are hot on her heels!

Rating: ★★★★☆

    1. There’s just something creepy about how Matthew says my name like that. ::death chill::

    2. Spot on about Zatanna.

    3. I’m excited about Judge Dredd but have to admit that it was until long after the movie came out that I found out it was a comic.

    4. Enjoyed the DoFP review. The only knowledge I have of the story was what the Fox cartoon told me in my youth (on a related note, I just bought the final volume of the series on DVD). I know it’s not quite the same but it was still one of the many multi episode story arcs I loved in that series.

    I have double checked my copy of X-Men 142 with the X-Men 142 at the shop, and both of them end with a panel of the Angel asking if they’ve really changed the future…

    Rodrigo, whenever you mention the text-to-art ratio in old school comics, I’m reminded of Alpha Flight #6. If Stephen ever shows you a copy of it, RUN AWAY AND DON’T LOOK BACK!

      John Byrne’s original run on Alpha Flight? Issue #6, where Snow Bird fights Kolomaq?

      There were a lot of words in that issue, eh? The fact that several pages were nothing but white panels filled with dialog balloons didn’t help.

        You got it! When there is no art, the text-to-art ratio is basically “dividing by zero”… and we all know how that works out :)

    Loved the show but how many POWs about wolfmen can we have w/out WOLFMAN JACK!?!?

      You didn’t listen to last week’s show where I mentioned Wolfman jack vs. Wolf Blitzer, did you?

      • August 21, 2010 at 9:03 am — Reply

        Anyone mention Marv Wolfman yet? ‘Cause he’d get my vote every time.

    Loved the return of the classic “pollllll of the week, week, week…”.

    I was shocked that such an important piece of X-Men history is only a 2 part arc.

    Rodrigo: do you actually like reading Withcblade? You speak of it like reading it is a chore and often point out the large amount of problems it has.

      Really? Was I any more critical of it, than say, Deadpool Origins #1?

        No, it’s just that I don’t remember you ever saying anything overly positive in your reviews of Witchblade, yet I know you read it regularly. Maybe I just focused on the bad stuff you say during your reviews.

          You may have, go back and listen to this show, notice the rating and my final thoughts about it.

          Rodrigo says many positive things about Witchblade, but he’s also very candid about the flaws he sees in it. This week’s review was very positive… His approach to the books is different than Stephen or I, but often I find Rodrigo more open to the charms of a book that may have flaws than my own more entrenched opinions on the subject of comics.

            Maybe it is the fact that Rodrigo reviews comics in a different way that threw me off. his reviews are more dark/light grey then black or white. I didn’t mean to start something it’s just I can never tell if he likes it or not, which now I know he does.

    Ummm..guys? I don’t think X-man/Nate Grey version 1 EXISTS anymore. He probably been retconned or mixed up with Regular Cable (whose name is Nate also[verison 2]).
    Also, most of the Exiles (and my fav: Nocturne!) came from future timelines that got screwed up…or something. :P

      I believe he’s appearing in the new Volume 3 X-Men book, at least if the previews are indicative of truthiness.

    Score! I like him better than Cable anyway. I might not be able to get those issues right away, though. (what with being a poor poor college student and all XD)

    Yaaay, my voicemail made it onto the podcast! Only issue is that what I voicemailed about is going to be reviewed in the next podcast so I won’t be referenced. Puu. Oh well, at least I got to hear myself speak. I sound so weird on a recording I think.

You know you have something to say, say it in the comment section
