David and Richard discuss the latest in news from the world of comics. This week it’s another new logo, or should we says logos, for DC Comics, ‘Catwoman’ tries some porn to corrupt our children, PJ Hogan adapts ‘Bone’, Green Arrow ready to shoot for the CW, and the world premiere of SMILE. All of this plus our kick-ass Pick of the Week, this week we discuss Green Lantern/Green Arrow: Hard Travelling Heroes.
Our next reading assignment: The new run of Daredevil (Issues 1 – 6) plus a couple of other bits and pieces from Marvel’s “stealth reboot” including Avenging Spider-Man (Issues 1- 3) and the first few issues of The Punisher.
