in this week's issue of Las Vegas Weekly, if you would like to go read that review. I'd definitely read the book though, were I you...and it's your cup of tea, which it may not be, as there's an awful lot of content that I think can best be described as—oh, what's the term...?—fucked up.

Finally, I have a pair of reviews at School Library Journal's Good Comics For Kids blog. The first one is of a neat little line of board books in which DC's super-people teach the littlest of kids about shapes and
