In this issue, we talk about Marvel NOW! and the latest superhero TV. THEN DC takes a digital stand, and goes overboard with the variants. Meanwhile, help reveal the Man of Steel (as what?) and Marvel takes another crack at that Phase One Box. PLUS our pick of the week: Y: The Last Man by Brian K. Vaughan, Pia Guerra & José Marzán, Jr.
Our next reading assignment: The Last Christmas by Gerry Duggan, Brian Posehn, Rick Remember and Hilary Barta.
