It's been almost two years to the day since the launch of DC Comics – The New 52, and what a crazy awesome time just this past year has been. We've experienced the return of an old foe—albeit with the world’s worst facelift. We've witnessed war with the hordes of Apokolips—on two different earths! We've seen godly families reunite, and then like all recently reunited families, proceed to squabble, fight and all-out brawl. Heck, we've even opened a gateway for evil alternate reality version of ourselves to invade our Earth. You know, like you do.
This month, some of the most powerful heroes in the entire DC Universe have gathered together in the face of uncertainty to ask the world one thing…
Will you be my Valentine?
This month marked the one-year anniversary of DC COMICS—THE NEW 52. It's hard to believe a whole year has gone by, but times flies when you're having fun and reading some rad comics. Also when you're playing video games. You think, "One more level and then I'll go to sleep," and next thing you know it's 4 a.m. so you might as well play through till morning.
Excuse us for the ramble. We're a little sleepy...
