This week on the Major Spoilers Podcast: We ask the all-important question, “Who is Donna Troy?” Plus, we review Archie #29, The Clandestinauts, A Wrinkle in Time, and Green Lantern: Earth One.
Or – “Make A Hawk A Dove, End A War With Love, Make A Lah Farnah FOO!” Sorry, I was never really clear on what that last lyric was.Â For months now, Gail Simone has seemingly been building up to something epicÂ with her work on Wonder Woman, and it seems that we’re finally going to get a glimpse of what it is.Â Last issue, yet another strange creature arrived to challenge the Amazing Amazon, but this time, the story ends differently…
Oh boy, did we get a lot of people entering the second annual Major Spoilers Costume Contest.Â There were over 50 entries from 20 entrants (yes, some people entered multiple times).Â Personally, I think all those who entered the contest deserve kudos for taking the time to make their costume and sending it out for the world to see.Â You can tell some of the entrants spent a great deal of time on their costumes, and really get into their work. Without further ado, take the jump to see all the entrants for this year’s contest. UPDATE:Â Voting is now

In 1984, or so the story goes, DC Comics was in dire straits. The company was bleeding money, very few of their iconic characters seemed very relavant, and there were, apparently, rumors that DC would be no more within months… Then, Marv Wolfman and George Perez launched ‘The New Teen Titans,’ a book that took DC’s kid sidekicks, added a dash of X-Men-style plotting, and managed to generate a bona fide classic (and, some say, bringing DC back from the brink.)
or, OH thank HEAVENS it is finally over! With a sigh of relief I opened the pages of the last issue of Countdown, and with a similar sigh I closed them a few minutes later. They had not finished badly, as previous issues had suggested they might. Though they finished leaving me baffled, it was not â€œbad.â€ Countdown, issue number 1 (or 52, whatever), both finished off the Countdown saga, and paved a few stepping stones for Final Crisis.
