Wednesday Comics 6! Only three weeks late!
Yeah, I kind of dropped the ball on the weekly posts, but the scans have so much time between them that my heart went out of it. Dunno whether I'll keep up, but I'm giving up on the showcase-style posts. Instead, here's my two favorite strips from week six.
How fun is this strip? Too much fun! Between Wednesday Comics and their Power Girl title, Palmiotti and Conner have almost a monopoly over Kara's of all world, but the way they do them, I don't think anyone minds. Dig the shell-phone! And that's the fourth and final strip we can post here, so if you want to continue following Supergirl's adventures, you'll have to read Wednesday Comics!
This strip gets a lot of flak for being cluttered, but it's finally starting to stretch out a bit. It still has more panels than the others, but I'm too busy enjoying it for it to bug me, honestly. Again, guest stars stealing the spotlight, but Etta does so by being delightful and eager where Arthur was more irate and shouty (on his shell phone!). Anyway, Ben Caldwell's annotations (which have updated even slower than the weekly Wednesday Comics scans!) have mentioned how the strip has handled Diana's first encounters with mortals, and this is really the first positive one. Do you think she could've had a better one, or that Etta's hero-worship is a good counter to Dr. Poison's brutality and Cheetah's scheming?
