rated-B, 4 buzzworthy

Peter Tomasi and Gail Simone take the route of lesser gods by covering the not-so- known figures that add complexity and in some ways, more interesting stories to tell over their A-list contemporaries.   Tomasi was key in bringing Nightwing from the shadows as the new Dark Knight over the last year.                                                                                        This same magic has been brought to the GL Corps by bringing forth Soranik Natu, Sodam Yat and Arisia Rrab- infusing more depth to the well established mythos of such legends like Lantern's Gardner and Radner.
And as for believe it or not, the humanizing of Sinestro...just check out how he plays "daddy" with Soranik.                                                                          
Simone who is well known for her script on Wonder Woman, is in many ways so much more tasty on her coverage of the Secret Six.  The genius handling of lasting villians like Bane, Deadshot and the daughter of Vandal Savage, allows you a glimpse in the everyday of these very 3-dimensional figures and makes you see the how and why they make the choices they do, going beyond the simple case of being crazy, nutty or whatevs you want to call it.                                                                                                                                                             Don't sleep on these titles... being B-rated has never been so good.
