Reviews: Age of Ultron #10AI, Batman/Superman #1, Lazarus, Uncanny #1

Jimmy flies solo again due to time constraints and briefly chats about his SDCC press woes being solved, attending his friend Kim Boekbinder's album release party and trying to get Suicide Girl Soya on the podcast while at SDCC. News includes: DC Comics Vertigo imprint is bringing 6 new titles this fall, Comixology offers subscriptions and bundles and Starz announces 2 new series in Outlander and Black Sails. And, it's the third and final of three panels that Jimmy moderated at Heroes Con a few weeks ago. This one dealt with going from indie comics to mainstream and back. It featured Becky Cloonan, Kelly Sue DeConnick and Robbi Rodriguez. Jimmy was a bit under the weather so isn't his normal chatty moderating self. Thankfully, he had smart, entertaining and talkative panelists! Great discussion about how they got started and where they are now.  Leave your iTunes comments! 5 stars and nothing but love!
