MAJOR SPOILERS POLL OF THE WEEK

Major Spoilers Poll of the Week: You Pick The Trade Edition

If you want to suggest a trade paperback, you need to send an email to podcast@majorspoilers.com. That suggestion will go into the hopper and at least once a month, we’ll pick a number of suggestions for you to vote on, and at the end of the polling period, the book with the most votes will get the Major Spoilers Podcast treatment.

DISCUSSION: PROMETHEA VOLUME 1
Sophie Bangs was a just an ordinary college student in a weirdly futuristic New York when a simple assignment changed her life forever. While researching Promethea, a mythical warrior woman, Sophie receives a cryptic warning to cease her investigations. Ignoring the cautionary notice, she continues her studies and is almost killed by a shadowy creature when she learns the secret of Promethea. Surviving the encounter, Sophie soon finds herself transformed into Promethea, the living embodiment of the imagination. Her trials have only begun as she must master the secrets of her predecessors before she is destroyed by Promethea’s ancient enemy.

    One of my favourite traditions in DC Comics is the Thanksgiving crossover issue. I really enjoy the fun, often kind of goofy, stories that get told as the JLA, JSA, and others gather for turkey and pumpin pie.

    With Superman now on the Supegirl show, and with all the DC properties now together on one network, I would LOVE to see a Thanksgiving crossover episode with characters from every show.

    And hey, what better venue for a Legion of Superheroes teaser than this?
