To say the recently reimagined Batgirl by writers Cameron Stewart and Brenden Fletcher and artist Babs Tarr represents an important turning point in comics would be an understatement. Between Barbara’s practical new costume, modern new villains and challenges more reflective of those facing young adults today, it’s struck a chord with fans and has gotten more than a few new readers into their local comic book store.
With a new year on the horizon and the holidays upon us, it’s a good time to take a look back at 2014 to remember and remark upon a few of its key DC Entertainment moments. Some of these moments played out on the comic book page or the screen, others were real-life happenings that shaped what we’ll be reading and seeing over the years ahead. If you’re a DC Comics fan or just an entertainment fan in general, they all mattered. It’s been a great year full of both ups and downs, but these are the big ones. These are our DCComics.com “Ten Moments that Mattered” for 2014.
The temperature may be dropping outside, but things are sure heating up at your local comic shop, especially if you’re a DC Comics fan. This pre-Christmas week brings with it a whole bunch of holiday treats, including some highly anticipated installments from a few of our heavy hitters.
