Jason's Picks: The Next Generation of Heroes

When Robin burst onto his first cover of Detective Comics, DC showed that its universe was ready to change and evolve with the dynamics of their characters. Legacy is an important theme that runs throughout the DC Universe, and one we’ve discussed here in this column before. Still, it’s such an important theme that to kick off 2018, I’m picking three collections that will be released this month that I think you will not only enjoy, but feature the legacy of the DC Universe.

Together

Together. 

That was always the appeal.

All of them. Fighting. Together. 

Do I love Superman? You bet.
And Batman? Even more. 
And Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Lantern, Red Tornado, Atom, and...and...and...
YesYesYesYesYes.
And more yes. 

And now, here we are—on the day that I dreamed about all those decades ago: the new Justice League movie is about to open. It is not just the culmination of geek dreams. It also marks the start of them. At least for me.
