Spotlight Friday 12 Days of the Comic Source
The Comic Source Podcast
Jace discuss in depth 5 recent books he has read, starting with Female Furies #1. The world of Apokolips is ruled by Darkseid with an iron fist and it is no surprise that it is misogynists and backwards in terms of equality, but that doesn’t sop the Female Furies from trying to right the imbalance. In Die #3 we start to get an idea of just how far in over their heads the 5 friends and former RPG players are. Also we are introduced to the “warden” of the world of Die and he just may be someone you’ve heard of. Jace breaks down the third issue of Mark Millar’s Prodigy and takes about how the series just isn’t working for him due to lazy writing and too many factual inconsistencies to be enjoyable. Self Made;s third issue flips the story on it’s head as we head into act 2 with all the status quo thrown out the window and the very survival of our protagonist Amala is unknown by issue’s end. Finally in the debut of Chip Zdarsky’s Daredevil, Matt may have stepped over the line and rung a bell he can never unring. Zdarsky may be going over some familiar territory but he is doing it with such great characterization, intriguing interactions and dramatic tension that Jace was immediately sucked in.
