A page from Catwoman Secret Files and Origins
ETA: I just realized part of this has already been posted.
You can read it here, where people already answered many questions that came up. I didn't think there was a chance someone had posted it already...that'll teach me to assume.

So I was reading some posts about Batman and Catwoman here, which reminded me how much I like Selina. Then I found [info]espanolbot 's posts on Ed Brubaker's Catwoman, which reminded me how awesome they were. Anyway, I don't have more Catwoman, but I do have this short bit from The Comics Journal #263 that I think everyone will appreciate.

Green Lantern/Superman: Legend of the Green Flame
So...I had no idea Neil Gaiman wrote a Green Lantern story. Apparently the tale has a pretty interesting history ('How do you lose a Neil Gaiman script?'- Mark Waid). It's a pretty decent story, with a lot of talented artists attached (plus cameos by Deadman, The Phantom Stranger* and Selina Kyle).

*Due to certain constraints the Phantom Stranger may not appear as advertised. Or at all

Age of Bronze
Age of Bronze is a comic series by Eric Shanower depicting the Trojan War, and I just love it and wanted to share. I had to read the Iliad and the Odyssey in school, and though I got the gist, it is somehow a lot different when you have an image to associate with the characters - especially when it's art this good-looking!

The archaeological background was heavily researched and it really shows - these aren't your usual toga-clad players, but rather very plausible Bronze-Age Myceneans and Trojans. The stories of the characters themselves - past and present, and enough relatives to make the Summers family tree look pedestrian - are interwoven to present a unified story despite the varied origins of the original myths.

What Holly thinks of the WW relaunch
I got this for 50 cents in Winnipeg, and all I could think of when I read this was "Holy crap. Brubaker is psychic."
