Have you been pre-ordering your DC Universe Bombshell Statues? If you have, then you’ll be very interested in the upcoming Black Canary Bombshell Statue that brings more rockabilly style to the DC characters.
When it comes to fights, there is the My Dad Can Beat Your Dad, Superman vs. Hulk, My Fav vs. Your Fav, but rarely do you see fights involving one married couple taking on another married couple.
To be honest, the current relationship status between Green Arrow/Black Canary and Hawkeye/Mockingbird seems to always be up in the air, but for the sake of this Poll of the Week (submitted to us by @Praion via Twitter), we’re considering the couples married.
Recently, DC Comics announced they would be “relaunching” their entire line of comics, with new number ones. Along with these new number ones, will be a line-wide redesign for every character. Many of these redesigns have already been criticized, so instead of hating on a bunch of costumes from comic books that haven’t even been published yet, I will be taking a stroll down memory lane, in the hopes of digging up redesigns that should never be forgotten. Join me, will you?
The Death of Oracle concludes, and it looks like Calculator has already won. Certainly that can’t be true, find out after the jump
It’s showdown time in Gotham’s alleys. The mysterious new White Canary is playing her hand but can Black Canary and Huntress make it out of this fight in one piece? Is White Canary the mastermind behind the blackmail threat?
What happens when a mysterious new villain threatens to expose the secrets and identities of everyone in the superhero community? Call in the Birds of Prey!
Marcio Takara has been working on the Incredibles series for Boom! Studios, and while his work there is great, it’s his other super-hero work that has me captivated.

My day gig is a study in many things…Â Management theories.Â Inappropriate dress.Â The mating habits of the Bisexuals Of The Plains.Â But one thing that it is not, and has never been, is uncomplicated.Â Thus, I have come to you, our Faithful Spoilerites, with another batch of mini-reviews, just like a Chili’s mini-burger entree only less likely to make your @$$ look like a truck.Â (Also, be aware that I just barely decided not to do this one in limerick form, in honor o’ th’ wearin’ o’ the green…)
Rapid Fire Reviews…
Comics In Poetic Form.

In the world of comics circa 2009, there seem to be only two rules that are universal.Â First, old characters will be resurrected and represented with a new coat of paint and some sawdust in the transmission as new characters (witness Power Man, Iron Fist, Blue Beetle, Ms. Marvel, Nova, Black Lightning, Vixen, et al.)Â The second rule is that the days of one writer staying on any title indefinitely are virtually nil, unless that writer’s name is Bendis.Â Green Arrow/Black Canary was launched under the very individualistic pen of Judd Winick, who had a certain style, a certain way of saying things, a certain feel for the characters.Â It may not have always worked for every reader, but at least it was unique.Â This issue promises a new start, with a new writer, new penciller, and a really, really ugly villain on the cover…Â Can it live up to the previous issues?
Or – “Wasn’t There Another Reviewer At Major Spoilers?Â Some Old Dude?”
It’s a little known fact that the month of December contains space-time anomalies that keep you from ever completing anything on time.Â Add to that a new paradigm at my office, wherein my team load has doubled and my patience halved, a tendency to want to spend time with my friends around the holidays, a scanner that works about half the time and my recent birthday, and I admit it…Â I may have been neglecting my reviews.Â Still, t’is nobler in the mind to beg forgiveness than it is to ask permission, so I’m back with a new batch of things you may have already read, but forgot to ask for my opinion on the first time.
Or – “I Honestly Have NO Idea When These Books Came Out…”
Welcome back, my friends, to the show that never ends…Â much like the harassment you get when you wear the pizza suit and dance on the corner in front of a Cici’s.Â Even when you’re cutting back on comics purchases, like I have, the urge to review more comics than thereÂ is time to review themÂ is strong.Â Makes me with there were 8 days a week, actually.Â Thus, we at Stately Spoilers Manor have created this handy, dandy method of touching upon things going on at Penny Lane, down the long and winding road, even across the universe.Â So why don’t we do it in the road, throw some Norwegian wood on the fire, cause it’s a helter skelter ride through a day in the life of comics!
