Sneak Peak: Supurbia #1
It’s “The Super-Hero Housewives Of Gotham City!”
Ever since Astro City and Powers, I’ve loved super-hero comics that fiddle around with the standard tropes of television drama.
Take a medical, cop, reality show format and apply it to the cape crowd. I’m always going to give something like that a look.
That’s why I’m also a fan of Batton Lash’s Supernatural Law - it’s like L.A. Law, but with monsters and supernatural goings-on. I like creators who think like that.
Here’s what Boom! says about it:
“What goes down when the capes come off? Meet the Real Housewives of Earth's greatest super-team, the Meta Legion! It's the egos, the tantrums, and the betrayals of the super set...this series takes the familiar super-team and turns it on its head with a scandalous, TMZ-fueled look at what it's like to live with a superhero!”
Now that’s something I’ll check out. It’s coming up in March.
