The Roundup: These Kids are All Right

Why should the adults have all the fun? While here at DCComics.com, we tend to think of characters like Kal-El, Bruce Wayne, Diana of Themyscira and Hal Jordan as ageless, they’re clearly well over the legal drinking age. And that’s fine. It allows us to believably present Bruce Wayne as a brilliant entrepreneur and philanthropist overseeing a multi-billion dollar company when he’s not fighting crime, or Hal Jordan as a former test pilot who would be a logical candidate for a Green Lantern ring.

WonderCon: A Weekend in Words

This weekend, while many of us were walking the WonderCon walk (hopefully in our most comfortable shoes), plenty of writers and journalists were hopping on news sites like IGN and Comic Book Resources to talk the WonderCon talk. With the world premiere of DC Entertainment’s new animated movie Son of Batman, an all-star Batman 75th Anniversary panel, a bevy of talented writers and artists in attendance, as well as tons of exciting news and announcements, there was certainly no shortage of topics to discuss.
