We haven’t hidden any Easter Eggs in this week’s show—but there’s much to enjoy in this week’s batch of comics (unless they’re new Image or IDW titles). We were unusually hard on some of the new titles published this week—they had a hard time capturing our fancy. Such is the nature of a review dear listeners. However, there was a lot of good to be had in the reliable superhero standbys this week.

00:09:45 Green Lantern #65: We’re enjoying the “War of the Green Lanterns” crossover—especially the Hal and Guy scenes—but what’s up with John Stewart’s Indigo Lantern costume.
00:13:47 Super Dinosaur #1: “All-Ages” is a misnomer—this book is aimed at a younger audience than these two listeners.
00:19:46 Power Girl #23: Judd Winick and Sami Basri have offered up another great issue of Power Girl. Buy this book!
00:27:26 ‘68 #1: Don can understand horror fans enjoying the visceral appeal of this new zombie book—Jerry didn’t find anything he could recommend here.
00:30:59 Invincible #79: We’ve got your Invincible spoilers here! Jerry continues to love Robert Kirkman’s super hero epic.
00:36:42 Thunderbolts #156: Jeff Parker continues to impress us with this funny book with great characters. Fair thee well Underbolts.
00:41:20 Supergirl #63: We continue to love Supergirl and what James Peaty and Bernard Chang have done on the title—but the villain reveal at the end had us scratching our heads.
00:47:49 Suicide Girls #1: Do not resuscitate.
