Hey, hey! Matt Ross, here. If you don’t know me, I cover Arrow for the #DCTV Couch Club. A few months ago, I wrote a readthrough that looked at GREEN ARROW VOL. 1, so when I heard Vol. 2 was out, I was excited to jump into the new trade!
After opening, I did what I think most of us do and immediately flipped through the book as a way to get a feel for what I was about to read.
It was just about a year ago that BATGIRL AND THE BIRDS OF PREY was announced as a part of Rebirth and DC fans were introduced to its sibling writing team of Julie and Shawna Benson. Since then, we’ve seen the newly reunited Batgirl, Black Canary and Huntress take on—and eventually team up with—a slightly shady new Oracle, outsmart a crime lord who happened to be Helena’s mother and go toe-to-toe, figuratively speaking, with the sinister Snake Gang. And that was just in the very first story arc!
April is a month for many that brings on unhappy feelings. Whether it is the encroaching end of the school year or the taxman knocking on your door, beat back all those fears with a good old comic book!
DC, just like every previous month, has released new collections and graphic novels! There are some real gems this month for you to read so let’s not waste any more time. Here are my choices for some amazing DC graphic novels you need to pick up at your local comic book shop.
There doesn’t seem to be much of a learning curve for Green Lanterns these days. At least, if Simon Baz and Jessica Cruz’s experiences are any indication. It’s been a little less than a year since Hal Jordan fused their two power batteries together in a bid to force the rookie Lanterns to work together. So far, it seems to have worked.
DC fans are flocking to Anaheim this weekend for the world famous WonderCon, and they’ll be rewarded with plenty of news, first looks and announcements. Whether you’re looking for the latest from Rebirth, dying to learn more about the Wonder Woman movie, eager to explore new imprints like DC’s Young Animal or WildStorm or just want to get some of your favorite comics signed, you won’t be disappointed. But if you can’t make it, don’t worry! You can keep up on all the action by downloading the DC All Access app or following us on social media.
If you think that Batgirl and Supergirl go together about as well as their counterparts Superman and Batman, well, you’d be correct. Kryptonians and Bats are a match made in super hero heaven. But what you may not have known is, unlike their predecessors, Kara Zor-El and Barbara Gordon haven’t actually had many opportunities to get to work with one another on the page.
...At least, maybe not in the ways you might expect.
It’s time to break down the strange, unexpected and altogether animated history of the other World’s Finest duo.
Holy magic wielders, Batman! On this week’s episode of The Flash—aptly titled “Abra Kadabra”—the eponymous character made his small screen debut in a big bad fashion. He appeared sporting some of the best hair that has been seen on a #DCTV show to date in order to flaunt his knowledge of future events with Barry and Iris…including the true identity of Savitar himself (a subject I know every reader here has their own theory on!).
That loud booming sound you just heard wasn’t Barry Allen breaking the sound barrier. It was the collective “thump!” of all of our jaws hitting the floor at once as we got to the end of THE FLASH #19.
