This week we’re talking about Image’s variant covers for Planned Parenthood, the end of Marv Wolfman’s RAVEN run, and Disney and Marvel’s diversity campaign. Image put out a press release in support of Planned Parenthood, announcing a campaign where each Wednesday in March the proceeds for specific titles with variant covers will go to the organization. Marv Wolfman is ending his RAVEN arc and one of our writers is particularly blue about it. The intriguing preview DC sent us for the upcoming “Superman Reborn” crossover arc almost makes up for it. Almost. Disney and Marvel are launching a diversity campaign that will cover all of their products, and Marvel gives us some more details on their soon to be released “Secret Empire” storyline.

We also cover new releases from the Big Two, Image, and some of the smaller publishers. This week, we’re even introducing a new feature to the show: Staff Picks! Let us know what you think of our picks and what you’re reading in the comments.
