Shiny, happy people: At Previews Review, Christopher Butcher looks at the books shipping this week, and offers some funny-because-they're-true observations about DC's trade policy (if you can call it a "policy"). But I particularly enjoyed his "plea" regarding "bright, flashy" superhero books:

"Look to complex and mature works for mature and complex stories, quit criticizing SESAME STREET for a lack of depth, unrealistic human proportions and an ending telegraphed from the beginning of the show. Go read something challenging, rather than demanding that children’s material BE challenging. It’s not doing any of us any good."
