This week on Hold 322… Night Owl loses his virginity and we get to see the origins of Nightwing, Catwoman and Batwoman. Also Jon’s favorite Charlton/DC character makes his first appearance in the new 52… naturally, he’s worried. Marvel Marketing continues their new trend of ruining comics. This time with The Ultimates. Speaking of Ultimates, the Spider-Men crossover has a nice ending and a possibility for more fun in the future. Bob asks what our favorite moments of the last 50 issues have been.
All this and Get Jiro! Face front true believers, it’s Hold 322!

I find the idea of a comic selling itself on the promise that a young person will die in each issue kind of depressing.
I know! And yet, Marvel, in their weekly newsletter, “Marvel Pulse” asked:
Which of these upcoming Marvel NOW! series are you most excited for?
Cable and X-Force
I’m not sure what the difference is between Cable and X-Force and Uncanny X-Force, but the results of this survey were published this week…
Avengers Arena… 33.28%
Cable and X-Force… 26.16%
Uncanny X-Force… 24.16%
So apparently most of the fans like this idea. Then again, these are the same fans that supported evil Venom in his own comic and supported Dark Avengers and Dark Reign far too long.
I guess I’m out of touch with the kids.
