War of the Supermen (Krypto gets stabbed by Zod because he's in the neighborhood)
Green Lantern (Dex-Star the Rage Cat gets shot at by thugs at point blank range and is later kicked by Hal Jordan)
Second Coming: Blind Science (Dr. Nemesis makes a X-Gene cat to serve as bait against Sentinel things. Next panel: cat running for life as Sentinel things attack)

Mind you, there were only two animals actually hurt (Krypto and the nun's cat), but I still thought it was bizarre. Not terrible. But bizarre timing.

Superman seemed to brush it off. (Walk it off, Krypto! You'll be okay) So I'm sure he is.

I'll be honest, it drives me crazy but most people reading it in trades wouldn't even click on the thread. It keeps a lot of really good books from being Review Group picks. :(

It's a one shot, though. Normally, I wouldn't suggest Scalped for the very reason you mention. But Aaron's one shots on this book have been great standalone stories that do enhance the larger narrative, but are written well enough that readers don't need any background knowledge about the title to enjoy what's going on.

Trust me, I've gone down that road before. :|

It's why books like Hellboy aren't picked, or any of the related one shots.

Too many of the group read it in trade. And we just did a vertigo book.

See Eli? I know. It eliminates a lot of really excellent books even when there's a perfect jump-on spot for new readers. You can pick what you want, Amlah6 won't read it, fourthy won't even click on the thread, etc. And the other half won't buy it if it isn't Marvel or DC.

So even books like Air or Unknown Soldier can't get the little bit of extra exposure. :(

In fact, the thought of it has me so irked I'm going to have to subtract more points from Gotham City Sirens for being so unnecessary.

Oh yeah, that was when Lee had a fit about the trade thing though, wasn't it?

I'd be one of the Scalped skippers, because I read it in trade.
