the bitches of vegas

drive-by readings

Zatanna #4 (DC)
"Playing With Fire"
Paul Dini
Chad Hardin
Wayne Faucher
Pat Brosseau
John Kalisz/Lovern Kindzierski
Stephane Roux (cover)
Brian Bolland (variant cover)

what we learned: Zee, aside from being a Vegas showgirl, has to do part-time asskicking of troublemakers like the Royal Flush Gang (these mooks have no other M.O. except rob casinos? why not hit the Indian ones? there are no superheroes there!). problem is her current (flirty) employer looks like a dealmaker with the devil Mammon, and looks younger than he really is. Mammon meanwhile, is in the habit of employing red-hot witches masquerading as 90-year old bitches.
oh shit moment: its 2010 and Zatanna still has no defense against mouth attacks, and she can't make a spell without talking?
what's next: Zee needs a healing factor. pronto.


i've burned my tongue before but this is ridiculous.
