Jimmy Palmiotti is hilarious! Is there a new person working at comic vine or is that the infamous Gregg I've heard so much about?

@feargalr: That's Jen 'MissJ' Aprahamian. She just started this week helping out with reviews and will be doing some feature articles.

I friggin loved this month's issues of All Star Western. I Enjoy reading Booster Gold in just about anything but working along side of Hex is going to be hilarious I think

What? Booster Gold is in this month's All-Star Western and then Jonah gets trapped in modern day in future issues? Sounds great!

Palmiotti's cool!

I honestly believe they would have canceled Batwing if Jimmy Palmiotti didn't do what he did in issue 19. Good move.

@twentyfive: Yeah well in the process they completely undermined the character that was David Zavimbe. He would never just quit. Yeah for him to say he never felt he belonged is a move that really angered me. I like Jimmy, but I had dropped All Star Western back in October & I really don't know if I can support this bull crap Batwing. I know everyone likes the new suit. I prefer the original. If you didn't read Batwing before like most pick it up.

@hempknight757: Oh I did. I'm glad you were a fan of the old Batwing. I am too. But sometimes... and it indeed is hard for me to say this, but sometimes, there needs to be a radical change to save a book. Look at the entire GL corner of the DCU, those solicits pretty much told me that this book was about to get canceled. I'm glad This new team saved the book, for the time being.

Uh oh, Sara has some competition with all the easily lovestruck on this site.

On topic, All-Star Western is the single most consistent book of the New 52. Great stories and great art and no filler or "fill-in" issues. Palmiotti, Gray and Moritat deliver every month and the backups are great as well. What a great book.

More of Ms. J! She handled that interview wonderfully with Palmiotti, whom I have enjoyed from time immemorial. The man writes Jonah Hex like Jim Morrison handled poetry. Great stuff!

Nice guy, even though I personally dislike the changes made to Batwing I'm sure he will deliver a fun book for new readers.
