But he's still under contract, so we sent Mowgli, of Jungle Book fame, to find him. It makes sense, right? Mowg is a terrific hunter, and he was raised by wolves. Send a wolf to catch a wolf, right? And in his world-spanning travels to track down Bigby, Mowg encounters all sorts of other wolves. In short, this story's all about wolves. Which you might have guessed
    if you read the story title.

    yes, i was upset when i looked earlier :( 

    I guess not that much since we already know they're up to something, but that he begins to take that shape (clothes or actually being him or whatever) was kind of spoilish of DC. Hopefully it'll be in this Wednesday's issue so it won't be too much of one.

    I can't wait for Ion. I miss Kyle having his own title. Here's hoping that Marz fixes the huge mistake he made by having Jade dump Kyle. I liked those two together and very much want to see them as a couple again.

    I think Supergirl really might want to get a warmer costume. She always seems to look cold. ;) 

    I want this. I want this bad.

    Yeah I think I noticed it now. A few of the covers really shot out at me in this listening. I think I easily see which of Batman's Allies Robin is being framed for murdering, and really messed up too. Man adding this book to my list when the first half comes out. I dig that cover though.

    The Cover for Supergirl is one shot I've been waiting to see yet, I'm still waiting on #4 to hit. (Gotta see what this BK S-girl is gonna do to the normal one)

    Gonna have to get Mongul in the toys, already got Hal so posing those in fight stances will be great. The rest of the IC line I'm debating on (specially if I got the cash)

    Now I wait to see Image & Marvel's.

    I really think that's a horrible, horrible rendition of PG.

    I think it's pretty good, actually. It's very obviously based off Jimenez's version of her. He's not the best artist who's ever drawn PeeGee (that'd be Amanda Conners), but he's not the worst. In any event, it's the only action figure of Power Girl I've ever seen, and as such, I want it.

    I really, really, want the Justice Black Adam and Captain Marvel. Such sweet figs. Waiting nine freaking months is torture; if there was Justice in the world, I'd have them by next month. :cry
