When you're a kid, growing up is the last thing you want to do.
Actually, growing up is the last thing we want to do too, and we still remember when the original Tim Burton Batman was in theaters

However, given the chance to say a magic word and instantly become an adult with superpowers? You don't need the Wisdom of Solomon to know what our answer would be. SHAZAM!
GREEN LANTERN #20 hits stores today and not only does this oversized issue contain the epic final chapter of the “Wrath of the First Lantern” saga, but it also marks the end of legendary scribe Geoff Johns’ time writing the series. Spanning more than 100 story issues over almost ten years, Geoff has breathed new life into one of DC’s most iconic characters and truly created a universe worthy of Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps.
We knew our fans were amazing, but the past three days have demonstrated just how wonderful DC Entertainment’s supporters are as we quickly met the $50,000 goal for the first We Can Be Heroes crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo.
SPOILER ALERT: If you have not read JUSTICE LEAGUE #18 and do not wish to know what happens, stop reading this post now (major spoilers ahead!)
You may have already read our “This Just Happened” post about WONDER WOMAN #18 earlier today, but with so many exciting things happening in the DC Universe this week, we couldn’t resist adding a bonus installment of this column today!
This week on THE SOURCE, we’re giving you a double dose of exclusive previews courtesy of the Justice League and Justice League of America!
Last month, we told you that in anticipation of “THE DARK KNIGHT RISES” opening in theaters and IMAX ® on Friday, July 20, comic book shops across North America will be distributing a free comic book to celebrate the film’s highly-anticipated arrival. More than 500,000 copies of this free BATMAN comic book will be handed out tomorrow on a first-come, first-served basis.
When it comes to "highly anticipated titles" it really doesn't get any highly...ier than BATMAN: EARTH ONE, the original graphic novel by award-winning writer Geoff Johns and artist Gary Frank.
But with the title now out in comic shops and available for digital download, feel free to stop anticipating and instead put a pillow under your face. Because you'll want a cushion for when your jaw drops to the floor!
