Since I’ve moved to the Midwest, I was unable to attend New York Comic Con this year as I have regularly since 2008. Even so, I still wanted to keep up-to-date with the latest news from the convention. Several of my fellow MoarPowah writers have already voiced their reports on the Con, so I decided to compile a list of the top 3 announcements from NYCC 2013 I’m excited for, and the top 3 that made me groan.
The title says it all! Listen to Silverwolf and I as we discuss our favorite comic crossovers, events, and arcs!

Judge, Silverwolf, and ArcGunner discuss superhero relationships, specifically which characters seem to get around quite a bit. Also be sure to check out Silverwolf’s list of The 7 Superheroes You’ll Date.
Thanks to the big announcement of the next DC universe movie, the Batman and Superman pair is on everyone’s mind. As a result, it’s no surprise I decided to review Batman/Superman #2 this week. I enjoyed issue #1, and looked forward to what creators Greg Pak and Jae Lee had in store for their second installment.
Last Wednesday, Judge and I ventured to Midtown Comics in New York City for a signing by writer Greg Pak. That day, Pak’s newest venture, Batman/Superman #1, went on sale. It was great to meet Pak and, given this comic also features art from the amazing Jae Lee, I eagerly anticipated cracking the book open and reading about two of my favorite comic book heroes. Did this issue live up to the legacy of its talented creators?
