Jeff Parker on a DC book? Interesting.

These have been great so far. I wish they could do one for Superman.

@Tim Sheridan Hey that’s a good idea.

Who is this Jeff Parker guy? Also, this things cost 99 cents?? Good thing I download then illegaly for free–because they suck! The lame Madureira clone doing the ame-comi powergirl sucks, he doesn´t know how to draw an ass, for one thing, and the writter keeps posing PW from Behind! The smallville season 11 it´s just as lame as the TV show was. JL Beyond it´s the only book worth looking at, but then you get it in print later, so why would you even bother paying for the web first?!

Am I’m eagerly picking up the printed collections, so even though I have to wait, I’m happy about it. Non-continuity is a major plus for me since I’m not enthralled with the new mainstream DCU. I really do wish they could do them for Superman… and Wonder Woman… and so many others.

“Gotham Spirit,” written by Jeff Parker and illustrated by Gabriel Hardman

This is a must buy!! Parker alone would of been amazing, but back with Hardman?!? Awesome!!! I may even buy this digital version before the print one comes out!

And I would love More Parker at DC please!! (but never leave Dark Avengers/Thunderbolts!!!!)
